Which Tech Accessories Should You Buy for Your Car?

From commutes and shopping trips to holidays with the family, we spend a good chunk of time in our cars. Because of this, convenience and comfort are key when it comes to your driving experience. 

Here at Vipa, we believe that having the right in-car gadgets should be just as important as any other part of your car. After all, having the right accessories and technology can make those journeys so much more relaxing and stress-free. 

Whether your car serves as your office-on-wheels or your weekend run-around, making sure you have the technology to keep up with your needs is always something that’s worth investing time and money in.

Enhancing your comfort and convenience levels couldn’t be easier when you have the right in-car gadgets to hand – whatever you use your car for. Let’s take a look at the in-car essentials that can help make your journeys as convenient and hassle-free as possible.

Car Gadgets to Charge Your Devices

Fast-Charging In-Car USB

Constantly finding yourself with only 10% on your phone, but still need to use the map function or make a quick hands-free call on the way home? 

Our super-fast in-car USB charger can charge your device as you drive. With two ports, you can charge two devices at the same time in around 1.5 hours.

Braided Charging Cable 

If you have an iOS device, then our braided USB to lightning charging cable is the perfect accessory to go along with your in-car USB port. 

Not only can you use it in the car, but you can use it in the office or at home too, so it’s great for when you’ve reached your destination. Plus, its braided nylon fibre design helps to avoid twisting, keeping it strong and resilient to breakages.

3-in-1 Cables

Our range of 3-in-1 cables allows you to charge multiple different devices at once. Whether you’re on a family trip or travelling for business, there’s no need to decide which device to charge first. 

Retractable Cables 

Can’t stand a cluttered car, or hate when your charging cable gets wrapped around your gear stick? Our 3-in-1 retractable charging cable provides the perfect solution. Fully retractable and safely stored in the glovebox when not in use, they’re easy to keep out of sight too, which is perfect for minimising distractions around you.

Connecting Your Phone to the Car 

Many newer cars come with Bluetooth functionality, so you can answer calls, connect your smartphone’s GPS and play music from your device through your car’s sound system with very little set up required. 

By holding your device in a vent, our magnetic phone mount is a great gadget to help with connecting your phone and car to each other while you keep both hands on the wheel and focus on the road.

For the ultimate hands-free experience, it’s fully adjustable, so you can position it perfectly without needing to readjust while you drive. It also comes with strong magnets to place in the back of your phone case, so your phone will stay put even on the bumpiest of roads and sharpest of turns. Whether you’re charging your device or playing music, it’s the perfect addition to your car tech accessories collection.

How Do I Connect My Phone to My Car?

To do this, make sure that your car is discoverable in the settings (you might need to find out how to do this from your car’s manual as each make and model varies) and search for it in your phone’s Bluetooth pairing settings. 

Older cars might not support Bluetooth pairing and will instead need an AUX cable or USB to connect to your car. Our USB cables are great for this and can be plugged into either a USB port in your car or through a USB adapter attached to your car’s 12v/24v power supply.

New car or old, playing your favourite music from your phone to your car has never been easier. 

We’re on a mission to provide you with the car tech accessories that will help improve your driving experience – and make your day-to-day life easier. Having the right car tech accessories can easily improve any car journey, wherever you’re driving and whatever car you have.
