^^This^^ My Samsung phone and DS's I-pad won't charge on ours. Thought it didn't work until DW plugged her HTC phone in and charged it with no issues.

Tried at lunch today the 12 volt plug and it worked fine but plugged iPhone into USB and nothing. That is the only thing I need to charge while camping. Oh well. At least it was a good concept.

Ours works with our iPhones. But until you figure out why it isn't working, just get one of the 12v usb car adapters and do it that way.

Yes. That is what we will do. I just wanted to be able to **** the cabinet door which will not be possible going that route.

My daughter just bought an iPhone and she was told the old charger (wall wart) wouldn't work, she'd need to use the new one. They told her the car charger WOULD work. I assume it's a voltage thing.

I would love to do this. Should be simple if we can make it run off 12V. I will search the forum and other spots

The USB port at entertainment center won't charge our iPhones but the one next to our bed will. So...as others have said...we put in 12b socket plug
