At first glance the Smartphone Experts Mini-USB Car Charger doesn't appear much different from any other car charger on the market. What makes it stand apart is that not only does it have the mini-USB connection, it also has a USB port for a second charging cable.

We are seeing more and more wall chargers designed to have detachable USB cords. These cords can be plugged into the SPE Car Charger allowing you to charge two devices at once.

I was concerned that charging two devices from the one charger would cause the plug to overheat. In using it with my Tilt2 and my daughter's iPod Touch, the plug didn't heat up at all.

If you need a compact solution to turn one car charging socket into two, the Smartphone Experts Mini-USB Charger with USB port ($14.95) might just do the trick. Need a micro-USB connection? SPE also offers a Micro-USB Car Charger with USB port ($14.95) that will work with the Windows Phones such as the Motorola Q9h, Treo Pro, Samsung Omnia II and other phones sporting the smaller USB charge port.
