Zus Charger Review: Never Forget Where You Parked Again!

Forgetting where you parked. It’s the #1 issue plaguing road trippers around the world…probably. Global epidemic or just a nuisance, not being able to find your parked car is really annoying. Thankfully the Zus Smart Car Charger and Locator is here to help. This headache saver is the topic of this week’s travel gear review. In my Zus charger review, I quickly found that this accessory isn’t just for the out-of-towners.

Here’s why:

Road Trip Companion AND Hometown Hero

I received Zus shortly after returning from my 14-month world tour and quickly stored away for my next road trip. My thought was Zus would be perfect for driving in unfamiliar territory. This thought abruptly changed when I spent 15 minutes searching for my Jeep outside a friends place in my hometown. Turns out Zus is also perfect for early-onset memory loss.

How Zus Works

This memory lapse was enough for me to bust Zus out of its attractive packaging and test it my neighborhood. Using it is as simple as:

  • Downloading the Zus app
  • and plugging Zus into your vehicle’s cigarette charger

The app runs in the background and saves Zus’s location once parked. When you’re ready to return to your vehicle you have the option of seeing where you parked on a map or using a handy compass that points you in the right direction.

Simple. Slick. Effective.

Also included is a handy parking meter timer and reminder. You just need to set the reminder to remind you…


The bonus feature of Zus is that it doubles as a dual USB charger. What really makes this special is its claim of charging twice as fast as standard chargers. In my short Zus charger review test, I definitely notice a faster charge.

Zus Charger Review – Lost no More.

So there you have it. Zus is not only the perfect product for your road trip but, for day-to-day errands as well. Its app is snappy, easy-to-use, and won’t drain your battery. This was a concern I had but was quickly dismissed with this email to support:

Overall, ZUS should not be draining much battery at all. The only time it uses up a good amount of battery is when you open the app and start searching for your car. At that point, it begins using the GPS function (much like your navigation does on WAZE or GOOGLE Maps. Once you find your car, that stops.) On average, ZUS usually takes less than 1% of battery drain on a phone. 

Even if Zus did drain your iPhone battery, the quick charger feature ensures you will always be able to find your lost car, new town or not.
