Editor’s note: We will update this list of the best car chargers regularly as new ones hit the market.
1. Zikko Quick Charge 4+ car charger
If you own a recent smartphone that supports Qualcomm’s current fast charging spec, Quick Charge 4+, then getting a car charger that supports this technology is a must. The Zikko Car Charger does just that, allowing smartphones with Quick Charge 4+ support to go from 0 to 50 percent in as little as 15 minutes with power delivery of up to 30W.
In addition to the USB-C based Quick Charge 4+ port, the Zikko Car Charger also has a standard USB-A port for charging most older smartphones, tablets, and notebooks. It’s made of an aluminum alloy, which makes it both sturdy and scratch-resistant. Finally, its edge ridge design keeps it from sticking out too much from your car’s charging port. You can get the Zikko car charger from Amazon in black via the button below.
2. Baseus Quick Charge 4+ car charger
Here’s another car charger with Quick Charge 4+ support. The Baseus car charger has one port with Qualcomm’s latest charging tech, along with support for the Power Delivery 3.0 technology.

It is available in black, red, and silver.
3. Anker PowerDrive Speed 2
This compact Anker car charger is equipped with two USB ports that support Qualcomm’s older Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

5. Aukey Quick Charge 3.0
Another well-known phone accessory maker, Aukey, has a great Quick Charge 3.0-based car charger on offer. In fact, both of the USB ports on this charger support Quick Charge 3.0. It also uses AiPower Adaptive charging technology, which should adapt its charging speeds to most devices it’s connected to. Finally, it has some features like a high-performance inductor to keep the charger from overheating, and a surge protector to keep it from overcharging your devices.
6. Meagoes Quick Charge 3.0
This car charger from Meagoes has two USB ports with Quick Charge 3.0 support and comes in space gray and rose gold colors. A nice addition to this device is that it also comes with a USB-A to USB-C cord in case you leave your primary charging cord at home. You can get the Meagoes car charger with a 3.3-foot USB cable or a longer 6.6-foot cable on Amazon.
7. RAVPower 4-port charger
If you want a car charger that can power up more than two devices at a time, the RAVPower 4-port car charger is for you. One of the USB ports supports the Quick Charge 3.0 tech, while the other three ports support iSmart 2.0 technology that is supposed to detect each device and provide the best possible charging output it can. The LED light provides info on how much charging is left to do for the devices. The only real downside is that, with four ports, this charger does tend to stick out of the car charging port more than most of the products on this list.
8. Aukey Fit Flush charger
If you want a car charger that takes up a minimal amount of space, then the Aukey Fit Flush may be to your liking. It’s just 1.63 inches in height, meaning it has an extremely low profile when you place it in your car charging power. The downside is that there’s just one USB port on this product, but the good news is that it does support Quick Charge 3.0 devices.
9. Roav Viva Pro
This is perhaps the most unique car charger on this list. This Roav product made by Anker will not only charge two smartphones at the same time, but it also has two embedded microphones and supports Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant. What does this mean? Basically, it allows you to use voice commands on your connected phone. You can ask it to direct you to the nearest pizza place, or call your mom, or play your music, and much more. The drawbacks of this product are that it does not currently support Quick Charge 3.0 or 4.0 technology and is quite expensive.
10. PowerBear charger
The last product on our list of the best car chargers is made by PowerBear and allows you to charge two devices at the same time. It supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 tech and has a maximum power output of 45W. The charger has a compact and rubberized body for a great feel in the hand and sports a bunch of safety features that prevent things like overheating and overcharging. It also backed by a lifetime warranty for peace of mind.
There you have it — these are the best car chargers in our opinion, although there are plenty of other great options to choose from. We’ll update this list with new models once they hit the market.
