way OT: phone charger adapters?

Post by DHalladay » Tue Jun 14, 2022 8:29 pm

I have a special hate for the way new cell phone models of the same brand often have different power supply "in" jacks, thereby rendering the company's old car chargers (which were too darn expensive in the first place) useless.

Does anyone know if adapters could-should-do exist that would allow me to use my older car chargers on my newer Motorola phone?

Might be a silly question, but does your car have a USB charging port in it?

I'd think one of those round plugs for what used to be the cigarette lighter with the USB port on the other end would work. That's if the other end of your charging cord is a standard USB

These are cheaper than a new car

Motorola Moto G.
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and help. Adapters have been offered by a member and are inbound.
