instead of using the car adapter you can unsolder the USB with a little but of work and use an L7805 (5V regulator) and make it so you can use any power source between 7-24 volts to get the perfect 5v a phone needs. great work tho very simple

electronics circuit dont permit you to use all power inside battery(the usb adapter

work between 12/24 volt) under 12volt.Use two battery(serial connect) to have 18volt and a best result and all power available inside battery...... :)
