In the US 85% drive to work every day, and every fifth person has at least a 45 minute commute. Plenty of time to give your iPhone or iPad that extra morning boost, don’t you think?

USB port in the car? Thanks, I already have one built it…

It’s true, pretty much every new car comes with an integrated USB port, but the question is, how well does it really perform?

Our test shows that charging your cell with this USB port is basically like driving in 1st gear on the Autobahn. The tizi team put it to the test. We compared our tizi Turbolader 3x Mega (More details on tizi USA / or visit tizi Europe) with a maximum output of 2.4A per port, to the leading integrated USB port in a new car.

The results are astonishing!! Check out the video and see for yourself!

Standard USB ports in the car only offer a mere 0.5A of power. Our road test makes it official.  You’d basically have to cruise the 6 hours from San Francisco to LA in order to fully charge most current smartphones with your car’s integrated USB port and iPads and Tabs often won’t charge at all.

Our test results show:

  • an integrated USB port: an  iPhone 6 Plus needs more than 6 hours to fully charge
  • tizi Turbolader: does the same job in around 2 hours

Driving for 30 minutes

The tizi Turbolader even meistered the quick-charge test with the iPhone 6. Forgot to charge your phone overnight? In just 30 minutes, you can charge your iPhone 6 up to 1/3 of the way while driving to work.

  • An iPhone plugged into the car’s integrated USB port only charged 11%,
  • whereas the iPhone connected to the tizi Turbolader charged a proper 34%.

The tizi Turbolader (Amazon US / Amazon EU) models can charge up to 4 USB devices simultaneously with full power. Depending on which model you choose, you’ll have up to 9.6A power reserve with more juice than any integrated car USB port can currently offer, even the shiniest, newest, premium class cars.
