To use this in my car what does it plug into? The outlet for a cigarette lighter? Or the car has to have a USB port for it to work?

    It doesn't plug into anything but your iPhone/iPod Touch. The iTrip draws its power from the device playing the music. This can result in slightly shorter battery life, but I haven't experienced a notable difference. There is a micro-usb port on the bottom of the iTrip that you can charge the iPhone through if you need to, but you have to buy that cable separately. (note: this port is not the iPhone dock port or micro-usb)
