    Phone Charger

    I have a Samsung phone with fast charge capability, and a plug in cigarette charger. When I use it in other vehicles, my phone states it is fast charging. This is not so in my 2015 JKUR. Is this a JK thing, or do I have an issue? Thanx!

    Jeep socket should do 12V @ 10A (120Watts)..
    Whats the output rating on the charger supposed to be? Probably much less I'd guess.. 15W?

    It DOES fast charge in other vehicles. I've used it in a Chevy, and Ford.

    My Samsung Note 3 does not fast charge with my plug in cigarette charger in any 3 of our vehicles (may be the adapter). It does fast charge in the JKUR inverter socket as well as the USB ports in our Subaru and Infiniti.

    Why would you use the cig lighter in your Jeep to charge it anyways?

    My iPhone didn't fast charge when I had it in the Accessory (Keyed) outlet, but it worked fine in the Direct Connect (Battery/Always on).

    My Samsung would fast charge in both locations. That being said I switched back to Apple.

    I have a four port usb high speed charger in my middle console works with all phones/tablets that have been plugged into it. Rapid charge on two ports. All you need is the normal USB cable. My friend has one of those chargers you have and they have issues with it.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
