If we're making suggestions

All of the car chargers on our list do an admiral job of charging your best iPhone. The iPhone car charger that makes it to the top of our list is the Anker PowerDrive 2. We love that it sits flush against your charging port and handles the needs of two phones at once.

And if you want a super long cable that won't crack or tangle, go with the Syncwire car charger. It has a four-foot coiled Lightning cable and a USB port. Any of these iPhone car accessories will make your life a lot easier when driving.

If you do have an iPhone 12 or newer, we'd recommend getting one of the best MagSafe car chargers mentioned above or on our separate list. It's just easier to pop your iPhone onto a MagSafe charger and not have to fuss with plugging and unplugging cables.
