    Happened to have a new At&t car charger from some auction still in its little plastic and box. I don't have any of the phones that the car charger part is for, but I could of course use the USB charger that is also on it:). So I basically clubbed the car charger part and kept the USB part lol.

    The question is will the USB part still work without the charger cord that was basically just hanging off the charger? Haven't tried it yet and did not want the phone cord part.

    If I understand right the black part has a USB on it and you removed the cord with the iPhone connector? It should work, if you did cut the cable though maybe be careful that end isn't live when plugged in... dunno if it would supply power by default or only on draw.

    Well it was a different phone connector not for the IPhone.

    It said something about taking turns while charging so I figured it would not get a turn if it was cut-off:). Didnt really need it unless the USB charger works so that's why I did it. Also, is much smaller now:).

    It probably meant both can't be used at the same time, plugging just into the USB port would of worked every time.

    Yep, that is what it would do. I guess I need to just try the USB part in a car to see if it works or not now. It is much more convenient without the charging wire:).

    Yea sometimes during emergencies or certain situations, that is the only way to charge some items.
