Best Quick Charge 2.0 car chargers

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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Incipio works great for me. Fast charger, solid construction, un intrusive blue light that tells user connections are good. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Aukey has been my go to for chargers recently. Great quality over all. I have been using the aukey one from this review for awhile now and it is very nice. They now have one with 2 quick charge ports that is even better for my needs and works just as well.
  • Same here. I've got the dual port car charger and their 10,000 mAh portable charger and both work flawlessly with my LG G4. Considering how cheap I bought them off of Amazon for I was very pleasantly surprised in both the build quality of the devices and the packaging. Highly recommended.

  • It's been my understanding from the forums that USB-C phones won't take advantage of quick charging unless the charger itself is also USB-C and 3A. Can anyone clarify? I'm looking to pick up a quick charging car adapter for my Nexus 6P.
  • I've not used one, but... As long as you're using a compatible USB-C cable with the charger and not an adapter or an inferior cable you should be fine. Posted via the Android Central App
  • On Amazon the Tronsmart model comes with option to choose a Type C port as well as a quick charge 2.0. Posted via Android Central App
  • Do you have a link to the USB C model?

  • That's all fine, bit what charger will work best on my nexus 6p that I should have soon Posted via the Android Central App
  • This! Posted via my Note 4 on Cricket
  • Yes I'm wondering what is the actual best car charger for my 6p as well?
  • Anker chargers and cables for me, sturdy build, and works well with new and old equipment Posted via the Android Central App
  • Anker is far superior to aukey is the experience I've had. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Had a 2 port wall brick given to me when my first moto charger died, charged evetything faster, been a loyal customer ever since Posted via the Android Central App
  • That hasn't been my experience. I have a number of Anker and Aukey chargers. They seem to be equal in quality for the most part.
  • Aukey for life, yo
  • This wont work with a samsung galaxy s6edge right Posted via the Android Central App
  • Sure it will. My girlfriends regular s6e fast charges with the aukey unit I bought for her car. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Uhh why wouldn't it? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have the Anker and its a steal for 6.99 Posted via the Android Central App
  • +1
  • I also have the 6.99 and works great for moto style and s6. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I use the Tronsmart TS-CC4PC and love it. It has 3 Smart ports and 1 Quick Charge port. Works great and isn't large at all.
  • I've been using the Aukey Dual for a few months. Works great to quick charge my HTC M9 and reg charge wife's iPhone 6 simultaneously. Aukey charges work as expected so I stick with them Posted via the Android Central App
  • I got the Aukey, and it's working great for me. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Didn't know the Aukey dual charger had a warranty. We've had ours about 4 months and the cord that came with it fell apart the other day. I may have to take them up on that warranty...
  • I like the Aukey with dual quick charge. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Got two of the Tronsmart ones on Amazon a few weeks ago. Amazon had them on sale for $9.99. One for each car. Came with two cables though, not just one. Barely use my home charger now. This fully charges my phone on my way to work. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Ready for fast charging in the car Posted via the Amazing Nexus 6
  • I bought a couple of swiftrans car chargers that have 2 qc 2.0 ports each. They were only $15 on Amazon. Posted via the Android Central App
  • A missed opportunity to test these chargers and see if they charge at the same speed, or, if not, which is the fastest and which is the slowest.
  • Yes, that would be an interesting test. I did run tests on wall chargers to compare between Quickcharge, standard charger, and by PC USB port, but nothing for car chargers. It takes a little bit of work because you have to wait until the battery gets to the same point with a running start before clicking the stopwatch, but an app to trigger an alarm at specific percentages helps a lot.
  • I bought a CHOE 4 port, 51w, 2.0 certified charger in June and couldn't be happier. Almost got the Aukey listed here.
  • I've had my Aukey dual charger for my N6 a few months without any issue. Does what it needs to and has ports for standard and QC, what else could you ask for? Now I just need to get a USB Type C to USB cable for my eventually 6P purchase and I'm good to go. Posted via the Android Central App from my Nexus 6.
  • Aukey's been fantastic for me both in the cool NW and in the heat of Phoenix. Posted via Nexus 6
  • I've got the Anker car charger, and the Anker wall charger too. I've also got 2 Anker 6ft micro usb cables; one nylon braided and one regular. Posted via the Android Central App

  • The Verizon quick charge car charger has been my favorite. It has a built in flashlight on the end of the cable that makes it that much easier to plug the thing in the right way. The drawback is that cable is integrated into the charger, so no swapping it once the micro USB wears out... Posted via the Android Central App powered by Droid Turbo
  • Moto droid turbo? Posted via Android Central App
  • I've been using two of the Aukey Dual USB Quick Car Charger from this review in my truck and my UTV. Reliable, has stood up to extremely dusty (Idaho moon dust) conditions on the trail. Gives me plenty of juice to keep the phone charged while I use it for topographical GPS tracking, Bluetooth to the stereo system and the occasional "poor man's GoPro."
  • I'm almost at a year with a Puregear quickcharger, excellent quality. Posted via the Android Central App
  • My PureGear broke ( stop charging it 2.0 and charges poorly at regular rate) today. Eactly two months after I started using it.
    That's why I'm here, looking for a replacement brand
  • Does anyone know why it seems no one makes these with a coiled chord? I would love to have one with a coiled chord. Posted via the Android Central App
  • A coiled cord is more expensive because you have to pay for more wire to go within the coils, instead of just a straight line. And since it's a quick charge charger, you can't skimp on the copper either and still meet specifications Posted via the Android Central App
  • But so it could be done? I would gladly pay a little extra for one. Do you know if anyone makes them? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yes! Qmadix makes one and it's for sale on Amazon (link is below).
    Belkin makes a "Fast" charger, but it's not an official Qualcomm Quickcharge device. http://www.amazon.com/Qmadix-Next-gen-Charger-powered-Qualcomm/dp/B00R3X...
  • Awesome! Thanks!!! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have been using the iVoler car charger with two QSmart ports since June when I got my LGG4. At that time there was some question whether the G4 actually supported Quick Charge 2 and0 suggestions floatef around that the iVoler was the only device that actually worked with that phone.
    Well they work flawlessly, something that can't be said for some other car chargers that have tendency to slide out due to excessive spring tension. Go iVoler! Posted via the Android Central App

  • The first suggestion seems a nice deal Posted via the Android Central App
  • I am using the Aukey Dual Usb Turbo car charger The user manual for Aukey states the following:
    - please unplug the car charger from its socket before you start your engine or do not use it. Is anyone following this? That would be so annoying, and I would probably forget to do it anyway... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have a great Tronsmart 4-port QC2.0 charger. Yes, only one port is Quick Charge 2.0, but the rest are 2.4A, and it can output full power on all 4 ports at the same time. It's great for when I need to charge my phone (in use for navigation), my tablet, and my fiancée's phone, all at the same time on the go. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have the single port aukey charger for the car because (a) I only have one phone and (b) it is MUCH smaller than that first one you have listed and can fit in some cars that have "deep" outlets and don't like those flared out ones.
  • The recommendation of these chargers is based on...what?
  • Well I can tell you that I really like the look and feel of the single port quick charge 2.0. Puregear that I originally got. But it only lasted 2 months before it stopped charging at the 2.0 rate.
    Now I've been on an Anker for about 3 weeks, so we'll see.
    Personally I don't see how hard it could be to make these things of decent quality, to last a bit, for a reasonable price.
