With iPhone 5 and 5s, your old iPhone 4/4S car charger with the 30-pin dock is going to need a Lightning-to-Dock adapter (which usually comes with your new iPhone 5). However, you can also use Lightning-to-USB cables if your car charger supports USB ports.
But for those who need just one single piece of an accessory, the Belkin Lightning Car Charger is the answer. In fact, at the time of writing this, Belkin is the only authorized third-party manufacturer to produce lightning-capable accessories. Belkin was the first authorized third-party manufacturer to produce a lightning-capable accessory.
Belkin Lightning Car Charger for iPhone 5/5s/6/6s/6 Plus/6s Plus
Belkin unveiled a set of Lightning-compatible legacy accessories that include a dock and a car charger. The Lightning car charger looks sleek like most other accessories from Belkin. At $19.99 (down from $29.99 at the time of launch), it’s one of the finest car chargers that can be had for a decent price.
Why it’s great:
#2. 2.1 Amp means more power and faster charging.
#3. Compatible with all Lightning-dock accessories: iPhone 5s/5/5c, iPad Mini, iPad with Retina Display (iPad 4th-gen) and the new iPod Touch.
#4. Reversible Lightning dock (which means no more worries)
#5. 4′ cable, long enough but not uncomfortably lengthy.
The alternative option is actually costlier: buying an additional Lightning-to-Dock adapter from Apple would cost you $30. The Belkin Lightning Car Charger, at $19.99, is a better deal even if you have an old car charger already with you.
Considering this, I guess if you’re in a hurry to grab one of these iPhone 5s car chargers (because you may be traveling a lot and losing juice on the iPhone), the Belkin iPhone 5s/5 car charger is worth every penny.
