Review: Just Mobile Highway and Highway Pro car charger for iPhone, iPad

by Christine Chan

When we are out-and-about, what’s the best way to juice up your iPhone? with a car charger, of course! But there are so many of them out on the market, so how do you choose? Fortunately, there’s an exceptionally great one out there that you should definitely check out if you are in the search for the perfect car charger — the Highway and Highway Pro from just Mobile.

Both the Highway and Highway Pro look the same — black plug that goes into your car’s lighter socket, topped off with a solid, diamond-tread aluminum head that reminds me of my own MacBook Pro (a black-only option is also available). a small and subtle LED light is found on the aluminum head, which will show the charging status. They both come with Apple-certified coiled 30-pin connector USB cables so you can charge up your iOS device (you can even use any other USB cable for a device to charge pretty much anything). The only difference between the two is that the Highway only charges one iPhone or iPad, and the Highway Pro has two USB slots for two devices (ideally an iPhone and an iPad).

So what makes the Highway/Pro so special? not only does it look great in your car (it’s looking way better than other plain car chargers), but it also provides a high-powered 2.1A output, with a built-in fuse to protect your devices from power surges.

From my testing, I would be able to charge up my iPhone about 10 to 15 percent for about 20 minutes of driving. if you do a lot of commuting, then this car charger should be able to power up your iPhone to full capacity by the time you get back home. The charging is rapid and much better than the previous charger I used (a basic one from Griffin).

So, if you have been looking for a great car charger for juicing up your iDevices (or anything else, really), then look no further than the Highway and Highway Pro from just Mobile. These are simply some of the best car chargers out there for the money. Say goodbye to low batteries with no way to recharge them!
