There are quite a few good car chargers in the market. But not every charger will be suitable for your phone/ laptop or charge them at faster speeds. So I have researched and found the best car chargers that you can buy today.
Things to remember
Before buying a car charger, there are two key things that you have to keep in mind: Wattage and supported fast charging standards. The charger wattage represents how fast it can charge your device. So, for example, if your iPhone support 20W fast charging, you need a car charger will at least 20W power delivery to get the top fast charging speed.
The supported fast charging standard is also equally important. For example, if your phone uses the USB Power Delivery (USB PD) standard for fast charging, your car charger also needs to support that. The same goes for Qualcomm Quick Charge. To remind you, Apple iPhones and Google Pixels use the USB PD standard for fast charging, whereas Samsung uses the USB PD + PPS (Programmable Power Supply) standard.
If a car charger doesn’t support your device’s fast-charging standard, it isn’t completely useless; you will still get regular charging speeds.
