I found this on ebuyer.com and thought it would be ideal for powering a RPi in a car:

Output is 5v @ 1000mA, just what we need.

Cost is £2.49 with free delivery.

I've seen similar in Poundland for a quid. They do USB-micro USB cables for a quid too.

Buyer beware with these cheapos -  bought one with a cable to charge my Galaxy Tab and found it did not kick out enough oomph - had to bite the bullet and but a genuine Samsung one - so expect similar issues with the equally finicky (in a non-derogatory way) raspi unless you buy a good one
