Below are the best car chargers you can buy right now.
Zikko Quick Charge 4+ Car Charger
If you own a recent smartphone that supports Qualcomm’s current fastest 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 of their battery capacity in as little as 15 minutes, and 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 or red colors for $13.99.
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 that is used on Apple’s more recent iPhones. There’s also a USB-A port with support for the older Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The car charger has a number of features designed to keep you and your device safe from overheating, over-voltage and more. The Baseus car charger is available in black, red, and white colors and is on sale at Amazon for $12.99.
Anker Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger
The compact Anker car charger is equipped with two USB ports that support Qualcomm’s older Quick Charge 3.0 technology. It powers up two devices at up to 39w, and can charge up a smartphone that supports Quick Charge 3.0 to 80 percent of its capacity in just 35 minutes. It also has Anker’s own PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technologies that provide the fastest possible charge to all non-Quick Charge devices.
The charger features a carbon-fiber mesh that gives it a sleek finish, and the two ports have soft LED lighting so you can see them at night. It’s on sale at Amazon for $25.99.
Spigen Quick Charge 3.0 car charger
Yes, Spigen, one of the best-known phone case makers, also sells car chargers as well. This two-port charger includes one with Quick Charge 3.0 support, along with a more standard USB-A port. It has a blue LED light for better visuals at night, and it has a number of safeguards against overcharging and overheating. Best of all, it’s priced pretty cheaply. You can get the Spigen car charger on Amazon for just $9.99
Aukey Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger
Another well-known phone accessory maker, Aukey, makes a Quick Charge 3.0-based car charger. 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 any mobile device that’s connected to it. 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. The Aukey car charger is available on Amazon for $19.99.
Meagoes Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger
This car charger from Meagoes has two USB ports with Quick Charge 3.0 support, and it comes in space gray and rose gold colors. However, the 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 for $13.99 on Amazon, or you can get the longer 6.6 foot cable with the charger for $14.99.
RAVPower 4-port Quick Charge Car 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 for smartphones that support the faster charging spec. The other three USB ports support iSmart 2.0 technology, which 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. You can get the RAVPower 4-port car charger on Amazon for $15.99.
Aukey Fit Flush Car Charger
If you want a car charger that takes up a minimal amount of space, then this Aukey Fit Flush car charger may be to your liking. It’s just 1.63 inch in height, and that means 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. You can get the Aukey Fit Flush car charger on Amazon for $12.99.
Roav Viva Pro Car Charger
This is perhaps the most unique car charger on this list. This Roav product, made by Anker will not only charge two smartphones, it also has two embedded microphones and it 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.
It can also still charge your smartphone, using Anker’s PowerIQ technology, with this charger, but the added ability for using all of the various Alexa skills makes this one stand out. However, it does not currently support Quick Charge 3.0 or 4.0 technology. It’s also the most expensive charger on this list at $69.99
