    Question '17 G80 USB Port

    Members don't see this ad
    Can you charge an iPhone with the USB port or is it only for an iPod to play music?
    Thank you.

    You probably can, I have an older model (2013), the manual says play music only on USB but later it says in the Apple cable part, the USB portion is for charging the iPod.

    I assume the UBS port is unchanged between model years, and on the 2015 model it will charge a phone, albeit very slowly. If you use the screen on your phone while plugged into the USB port, it may use more power than the USB port provides in charge (it will drain the battery less quickly while connected to the USB port).

    A USB 1.0 and 2.0 port will provide 500 mA (milli-amperes) of current, a USB 3.0 port provides 900 mA.

    A dedicated charger will often provide 2.4 A, or about 5 times the amperage of a standard USB port. The amperage determines the rate of the charge - more amps, faster charge (as long as the phone supports higher amp charging).

    In my car I added a dedicated two-port USB charger through the cigarette lighter adapter that provides the full 2.4A of a dedicated USB charger for each port, or 4.8A total. This way you get full charging capacity for two phones. The model is use is an "Aukey CC-S1 4.8A Dual Port USB Car Charger", I've been very happy with that, it's small (almost disappears in the cigarette lighter outlet and works very well).

    I also use a dual USB cigarette lighter adapter, generic, not sure of the charge rate but it works great as well.

    Austin TX, thank you for this info. I have a similar charger that I will use instead of the car's USB port. My dealer said you could use the car's USB port, but I was and still am suspect. It's just as easy to plug in the charger as it would be to use the car's USB port.

    The USB port actually charges my iPhone pretty quick even while playing Spotify.

    Austin Tx...I just ordered your Aukey charger from Amazon. I'm anxious to see how it works. I was also considering this model Mediabridge USB Car Charger - 2 Port - 24 Watt / 4.8 Amp - Smart Charge Technology for iPhone, iPad, Samsung, HTC, Motorola & More - (Part# UCC2-24B ) also on Amazon. Very similar to the Aukey.
