    I just bought an iPhone5 car charger. My iPhone battery is not lasting as long as it used to. Now that I have a Bluetooth connection with my car stereo, Pandora eats up a lot of battery life driving around.

    Well, you're using two radios at once (Cellular and Bluetooth) besides WiFi sniffing and cellular. My guess is that the cellular is using up a lot more power. I store my music on my iPhone and playing it through the car audio system uses very little power. I have a USB port in my car but it only puts out 2.5 Watts so it takes forever to charge the phone off of it. My son's Nexus 4 won't even charge off of it (it seems to have a minimum threshold to charge). I've thought about getting a cigarette lighter charger as some of those will put out 10 Watts though most seem to put out 5 Watts or 2 x 5 Watts - 5 Watts is good enough in general.
