I have two of these (bought from Fry's and Micro Center stores) and they
work well (charging my iphone and
headset as we speak :-).  zip-linq also has a dual auto version that
works well (I actually have 3 of that one,
one for each of my and my wife's cars and another to leave in the
backpack).  Neither terribly expensive.

You can also use a powered usb hub.  Overkill unless you need the hub too...
