Default Charing in car

Hey guys.

Previous to my Z2 I've always been able to charge my phone off the USB slot in my car. It's always seen it as a computer but if I just ignored that it would charge fine. However with this, no matter what cable I've been using it goes into the pic type mode but doesn't charge.

Anyone know why this might be? I have an Xperia P that charges but the Z2 just doesn't.

I've seen a few things on eBay that are a "fast charge" adapter. Basically male usb on one end and female on the other that states "charge any device that normally won't charge, via usb"

Think this would fix the issue? It's a Mercedes C class 2012 with the command online if that makes any difference to anyone.

I have a cig lighter in there also that could be a last ditch effort but I'd rather avoid using that as the positioning of it would be awkward with the wire all over the place.

Cheers

Do you happen to have the phone in USB debugging mode?
