That's why we're careful to only recommend stuff that has Benson Leung's seal of approval, and iOrange-E has had a consistent track record so far.
iOrange-E has three new car chargers which come with Quick Charge 2.0 or a Type-C USB cable built in, and we've got Amazon coupons which will give you up to half off the current price. Read More

This month millions of people will be travelling to see friends and family for various holidays. And that's great. What isn't great is a 12-hour car trip with five people and only one available DC outlet for five phones, two tablets, one Wi-Fi hotspot, and a USB-powered cup warmer. With a little advance planning and just ten bucks, you can avoid backseat scuffles and keep everyone charged and happy thanks to a 4-port car charger (compatible with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 standard) from Amazon.
The Tronsmart unit isn't overly flashy or complicated, it's just 4 USB ports and a cigarette lighter adapter (and from the photos, it looks like it doesn't have any annoyingly bright LEDs, either). Read More
Quick Charge is handy in just about any context, but it's especially useful in the car. With older phones on some roadtrips, using Google Maps navigation and streaming music at the same time actually made my battery power drop even as the phone was charging. With a Quick Charge-compatible car charger, that's no longer an issue. These upgraded chargers tend to be a little more pricey than their standard alternatives, but today Amazon has an Aukey-branded charge available for just $12.99. Add the coupon code 2P77G62C at checkout and you can take another $7 off the price, bringing it down to $5.99. Read More
Android phones are beginning to cross over to USB Type-C for charging and data ports, notably with the OnePlus 2, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P.

If you and/or your family is stuck in the middle, check out this new car charger from Tronsmart: it uses both a USB Type-A port and a USB Type-C cable, and both of them are compatible with Quick Charge 2.0.
