Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.
  • Every Car? Better make sure it's compatible with your Pixel if you have one.
  • Why wouldn't it work with the Pixel? It won't quick charge it, but it will still charge it.
  • The question is the same for any Pixel Charger. Is it on the Nathan List of approved chagers that won't fry your Pixel because it might be wired incorrectly
  • so if it doesn't support quick charge, then it just charges every android phone at a normal (slow?) rate? why not just get a QC charger from anker or aukey?
  • Price. Some people want to get something cheap and don't care much about the QC part of it.
  • OK, I'll bite: what other devices am i supposed to be carrying with me on a daily basis that might run out of juice at the same time as my phone?
  • Bluetooth headphones, maybe? A smartwatch, perhaps? Or a Nintendo switch possibly... I carry a torch which charges through USB, but honestly it needs charging about once every 3 months or so.. I'll get one for every car I own though. Mostly because I own zero cars lol.
  • Your passenger's phone maybe
  • let me quick charge support and no usb c support but it should be in every car? eh, no
  • You know how many phones are not QC compatible, and still use Micro-USB? Hint: More than you may think.
  • You're wrong Jared. I don't want one for every car I own, because it doesn't support Quick Charge. Change your article title please.
  • You may not, but there are lots of people out there who do want them in their vehicles. Quick Charge isn't super important to everyone, and there are a LOT of people out there using phones that aren't QC compatible.
  • Just giving you a hard time, Jared.. Thanks for responding though.
  • Of course! I am always reading the feedback and seeing what people say. We try to curate these deals carefully each day and take it seriously.
