Difficult (maybe impossible) to remove, does not charge
As noted in the title, this is a well-built unit, and looks good in every car Ive installed it in. The phone slips in and out of the bracket easily, and is held firmly with no rattling. On the negative side, once this unit is installed into the cigarette lighter, its not coming out without using some significant force, and might damage the lighter if you try to do so - Ive never been willing to do what it may take to remove it. Also, I wish that this unit had a charging function as well - it seems odd to me that no one seems to make a similar product and offer the ability to charge the phone as well. Whatever - I would purchase this product again, for lack of nothing better that I can find on the market.

hold the crackberry bold
This just wastes a lighter / 12V receptacle.. does NOT charge the phone. You have to have a 2nd 12V plug and a charger.
