Default Re: playbook car charger

Bes to test in a car when it is not running. That will prove if the charger is working or not.

a car has a 12 to 15 volt output that can be clean or dirty ( ac like spikes aka ripple )

My phone will not charge on my motorcylce unless at about 4000 RPM as the ripple on from charger circut is too high. when bike is not running it will charge fine too.

So it might not be the charger at all. it could be the alternator/charging circut in your vehicle.
