There are a good number of devices that support Quick Charge 2.0 these days, but many still haven't added a Quick Charge car charger to their vehicle. We've selected 5 of our favorites that will provide a snappy boost in juice so that you're ready to roll by the time you reach your destination. And while we know Quick Charge 3.0 is coming, we've still got some time before we see devices packing that kind of heat. In the meantime, these are excellent options to consider for any commute.
Anker PowerDrive+ 1 Car Charger
This miniature car charger from Anker features a single USB port on the front that packs Quick Charge 2.0, Power IQ, and VoltageBoost technology. Connected devices are protected from surges, overheating, overcharging, and short circuits. Its compact design is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and is wrapped in a glossy polycarbonate with a single charging LED on the front. The Anker PowerDrive+ 1 comes with an 18-month warranty and is CE, FCC, and ROHS certified.
Nekteck Quick Car Charger
Measuring 2.95-inches in length, the Nekteck Quick Car Charger sports 2 USB ports on the front that both offer Quick Charge 2.0 speeds. You can happily share this charger with any device — QC 2.0 compatible or not — and never need to second guess whether you're using the right port. Standard devices will be charged at a max of 2.4A, while the charger's built-in safety features keep all connected devices safe from over-current, overcharging, and overheating. Included with the Nekteck Quick Car Charger is a 3.3ft microUSB charging cable and a 1-year warranty.
Tronsmart Dual USB Turbo Car Charger
Rocking a more durable design that doesn't collect fingerprints is Tronsmart's Dual USB Turbo Car Charger. Both ports on the front utilize Quick Charge 2.0 and feature premium circuitry that keep your connected devices safe from overcharging and overheating. The VoltIQ technology intelligently delivers the fastest possible charge for any device connected, QC 2.0-compatible or not. Bundled with the car charger is a 20AWG 3.3ft microUSB cable.
Incipio Quick Car Charger
Incipio's single port Quick Car Charger features a sleek black matte exterior that's built very well and lined silver accents along the sides. It's great addition to the front or back of any vehicle and the LED charging light above the USB port lets you know when your device is properly connected. Although you're limited to only charging one device, it's a solid option if you don't need any more than that.
Aukey Dual USB Quick Car Charger
Since our initial review of this Dual-USB Quick Car Charger from Aukey, its held up to consistent use in both hot and cold climates. While its construction doesn't feel as solid as the Tronsmart charger, its much smaller in size and features a dedicated Quick Charge 2.0 port next to a standard 2.4A port for all other devices. Built with a full array of safety features, this car charger is still a favorite for its incredibly low profile design. Included is a 20AWG 3.3ft microUSB charging cable and an 18-month warranty from Aukey.
