Car USB charger not working

Hi. I gave two cig lighters in my 2010 Touareg. Both light up around the edges so I would think they are getting some sort of power, but I purchased a car charger plug in and it won’t charge my iPhone X. I’ve tried several usb chargers of friends and the same. Someone told me only a Belkin would work in a Touareg. Anyone know if this is correct? Or could it be a fuse?

The make of your charger is irrelevant.
If you've tried a bunch of different chargers, you aren't getting power. If you have a meter and know how to use it, you can test this.
Otherwise, start looking for blown fuses.

Did you have the ignition on when you tried? Most vehicles cut the power off when the ignition is off.

I have a Samsung car charger and it works perfectly. My guess would be it's a fuse issue.

2005 T1 Blue Silver 3.2L V6 (BMV 177KW), 18" Manhattan rims, wooden steering wheel and shift lever, otherwise pretty basic (being prepared for sale)

Light around the power outlet does not mean it works. You need to check the fuses for them. As said above does not matter what brand charger you use, they all should work. I have a cheap Verizon logo charger and works fine in my '10.

I found one make was too short to work but can't remember what it was.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
