Compatible USB adapter for USB-c charger


New Member
For a while I've been looking for a way to charge my Surface Pro in the car. I have a USB/cigarette lighter slots in car.
I have managed to find this really cool cable that charges to USB-c with high enough voltage: TECHGEAR USB-C Charger Cable (5ft/1.5m), Surface Connect to USB C Charging Cable Fits Microsoft Surface Pro 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, Surface Book 1/2, Surface Laptop / 2, Surface 3 / Studio/Go 2, Cable Only : Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
But I have failed to find an adapter from USB-C to USB-A or cig lighter so I can plug into car. I have tried a couple off Amazon unsuccessfully. I'm sure it is something to do with not high enough voltage but not sure what to look out for in the spec.
I found this post a little helpful as well: USB charger
Would appreciate if anyone can help me in solving this dilemma!

I've been using a 12v car power cord to charge my Surface Book 2 devices for years. Is that a possibility instead of using USB-A?
