    Hi all,
    I have the charger cable that came with the pro Max. I want to use it in my car. I only have a sub port in my car. Which adapter do I need to buy to make that work?
    TIA

    Welcome to iMore

    The 18w charger is limited to your home outlet and not your car charger

    I could be wrong

    You are correct. I am asking is there an adapter that can make it a usb charger. I have a USB port I can use.

    Simply take out the cable from the USB charger at home and stick the cable in the USB Port in your car.
    This is not rocket science. I’m not sure what you’re asking.

    Since you aren’t sure what I am asking wouldn’t it have been a better response to ask for clarification or not respond at, especially with it’s not rocket science. Let me explain it for you.....the charging cord that comes with the phone is NOT a usb. Therefore it won’t fit in the USB port in my car. I thought I made that crystal clear, twice. Reading is fundamental and comprehension is key.

    The cable that comes with the iPhone 11 Pro Max is a USB-C to lightning cable. In order for it to work with a USB port, you will need a USB-C to USB adapter.

    It would be easier just to get a lighting to usb-a cable.


    Apple used to include them with older iPhones or iPads.

    Yes we understand now

    I also have the Pro Max and I just went out and bought a braided USB to lighting cable at five and below for my car and keep the charging setup that came with my device for home use only

    Again Welcome and we hope you interact with our community often. You appear to be very Tech savvy
