Hi,

Selling my universal smartphone holder, compatible with the Vauxhall Powerbar. It is micro usb only. Hardly used.
Not looking for anything for it, just pay the postage costs.
Thanks

I am interested, provided it is all in working condition and the connectors aren't bent. Can you let me know how much it would be to post.

Just out of curiousity ....

Is the cable not detachable so it can be swapped out for one that has USB-C or lightening ?

Since this post, I actually ended up buying one off of ebay it was terrible, I don't recommend at all.

The cable is detachable although I couldn't make the car recognise anything with it at all. All it is, is a micro USB at both ends and a Micro USB on the side of the mount.

The quality of the device and cable is terrible.

Cheers

Adam

You do know that it is only supposed to charge your phone, and not connect to android auto/apple carplay right ?

This is the main problem with it as far as i am concerned, i think it is a REALLY big mistake that it does not connect to the radio like the USB port in the console.

Yes I know, I also think it is a big mistake that it doesn't as then it could have provided a second function.

For some reason my car thinks it has a second USB socket some where as well haha

Mine as well, but it does not exist. (Well maybe it does, but there is no connector for it anywhere in the car).

If you get the pinout of the "radio" i bet that there is another USB port, that is just not wired anywhere.
