We all dream of owning the latest car with all the gadgets, but that’s not always financially viable.

For most people a second hand car is their pride and joy, but vintage vehicles do not always come with the bells and whistles the newest four wheeler will have.

Some older makes may not have a built in USB port to charge phones, while others are only compatible with cassettes.

However, Amazon’s SmartCharge will change all of that and transform your vehicle into a smart car for a fraction of the price.

Buy it: Roav by Anker SmartCharge FM Transmitter/Bluetooth Receiver/Car Charger | £17.99 (Was £19.99) from Amazon

The Roav port simply plugs into the cigarette lighter port, and provides a variety of power sources for the user.

Not only does the port have two USB ports, it also provides simultaneous high-speed charging.

The solid Bluetooth 4.2 and FM connections allows you to sync your phone, or other device, to your car’s sound system.

The plug-in device also allows you to tune into your car’s FM radio frequency, so you can enjoy a singalong on your next drive.

Plus the stable connection and echo-cancellation technology reduces any background noise, which means you can listen to music, or enjoy a phone call, without any buffering or interference.

The ultra compact design has been a huge hit with customers, with almost 80% of shoppers rating the item five stars - and with a 12-month “worry-free” warranty, it is no surprise this item ticks all the boxes.

One customer review read: “So this product is very easy to setup and use. You can skip tracks forward or go back via the buttons also the button with the phone symbol will pause/play the music.

“If your car does not have Bluetooth for audio connection then this is a great solution without being a eyesore.”

Another shopper gushed: “My VW van has the standard in car CD system, no Bluetooth / WiFi or AUX ports.

“As much as I wanted to install something a little more modern with DAB included the cost was too much, this is a great alternative & includes a 'hands free' element too so even better.”
