Quick one hopefully...

 

I've tried using my old iPhone charger from my old 407 to my focus and it simply doesn't work, either in the 12v port by the gear stick or the one in-between the two front seats under the arm rest.

 

Guessing it simply doesn't work so i was looking for recommendations on a new one if possible?.

 

Highly doubt both sockets don't work...

Does the tip of your charger unscrew so you can change the fuse?
If so try that first.
If no fuse it could be that the charger contacts aren't making a good contact.
Ford sockets tend to be a bit larger than other models.

Ahhh, i don't think it screws off. It's an all in one job i think.

 

That would kind of make sense that it's not making a good enough contact, however i have waggled it around a bit and the light doesn't come on the charger.

 

In light of that, are there any ones that are known to work in a Focus?.

Just buy one like this and use the cable that came with your iPhone.

I personally use this one as it has two USB slots and still leaves the socket for other things.-
