Not enough power in car with USB to charge z10 but will charge bold and Q10

My in car USB shows the symbol that there is insufficient power to charge my z10 but when I plug in a Blackberry bold or a Q10 both indicate that they are charging.  The Z10 will charge properly when I plug it into a wall socket.

Is there a way to get the z10 charging properly in the car as well?

I faced the same issue. My guess would be that Z10 needs a more genuine (in terms of power) car charger than other phones.

 

However if we ignore the error, charging does happen but with delay compared to wall mount charging. 

 

Hoping to some alternative inputs from the experts.

You need to go out and buy a new BlackBerry car charger which supports the Z10.

 

Get the one which has the fixed cable coming out of it as well as a USB port. It charges super quick!

Changed my access to storage setting for the USB connection from Windows to Auto detect and it started charging properly again
