Galaxy S9+

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is designed to let you do more — as long as your battery doesn't run out! With USB-C and wireless charging capabilities, there's more than one way to keep your phone topped up while in the car. We love the Aukey 27W USB-PD option but all the below choices are great.

Quick Charge pick

Aukey Car Charger with 5V/3A USB-C and Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A

Aukey makes two slightly different versions of its compact car charger. This version has a USB-C port with 15W of output, and the USB-A port is branded for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0. With charging speeds on both ports that can fill up your Galaxy S9 at the maximum rate, this charger makes it easy for you and your passenger to charge up with whichever cable they need.

Futureproof pick

Aukey Car Charger with 27W USB-C PD and 5V/2.4A USB-A

Aukey's charger features the best of both worlds — a USB-C port with Power Delivery 2.0 and a more traditional USB-A port with AiPower adaptive 5V/2.4A charging — and either port will charge your S9 at a respectable rate, so whichever cable is in your bag, you can still top off. With 27W of output on the USB-C port, this Aukey charger can charge up USB-C tablets and laptops, which is another big plus.

Double USB-A excellence

Spigen 30W Quick Charge 3.0 Dual USB-A car charger

While Spigen's charger is not USB-C PD compliant since it uses USB-A, it supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 standard, offering swift charging for the Galaxy S9 and most other Android phones. It supports a total of 30W between the two ports, so even with two phones plugged in, they'll both charge up at the maximum rate.

Go wireless

iOttie Easy One-Touch 4 QI Wireless Charging Mount

The Galaxy S9 allows for wireless charging, and this car mount from iOttie is one of the best wireless car chargers I've tested, even working with a case on. It includes a 12V adapter with a hardwired cable for supplying power to the mount, and a telescopic arm and adjustable mounting options make it easy to affix to your dash or windshield.

While there are a multitude of car chargers out there — and a growing number of cars that come with USB charging ports built into directly into their center console or radio — a dependable car charger is an affordable investment that can easily outlast your phone or car so long as you're not throwing a massive purse at it every time you get in the car.

Updated September 2018: The list now includes two great Aukey options, which can charge up your Galaxy S9 and another device at two different price points.
