Rewire mains charger to work in a car

By my own admission, I am an electronics numpty, so don't laugh if this is clearly ridiculous

If I got a charger designed to be plugged into the mains, can it be rewired to work in the car? Basically, I want a TomTom ONE but I don't want to use it in the cradle. But, the power lead plugs in underneath, which means that once it's plugged in, it'll fall over!

However, they do sell a fast charger so you can plug it in at home:

If this could be wired into the car, it would solve my problem. I could just stick the base onto the area I want to mount the ONE, and Bob's your father's brother

Thanks in advance
