Hello everyone,

When I plug the USB into the car lighter to charge the mobile, the radio becomes interfered with.

Has anyone ever had this problem?
Its a Renault clio.

Thank you

Yes. It’s the cheap and nasty charger. They are poorly made and generate RF which is picked up by the radio. I have experienced this myself and know first hand.

I have now bought a quality USB charger plug made my Anker. It has three outlets. I have my TomTom, my dashcam and my wireless mobile charging cradle in use at the same time. No issues with the output power or radio interference.

I had this on my Citroen berlingo van
Every time I plugged in a item to charge the radio signal disappeared
You could unplug it and the radio signal would come back
Also If the items were fully charged the radio would work ok it was only when a item was drawing power to charge that the signal would stop
