What's a better deal than a dual-port USB car charger with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 for $9.49? Well, how about a 4-port one with the same QC 2.0 certification and a $14.99 price tag? Alright, now that I have your interest, here's what you're looking at with this Amazon deal.

Fast charging is one of the most prevalent solutions nowadays to the problem of battery life in modern smartphones. Battery capacity hasn't changed a lot in recent times, yet we keep on demanding more and more out of our phones, so fast charging was introduced as a way to juice them up faster than usual. However, not all fast charging phones are created equal, whether it's in terms of technology, charger used, or battery capacity to fill up. To figure out the fastest charging phone(s), Tom's Guide set out to test 7 different smartphone models in a variety of situations.
The list has the Galaxy S6 (proprietary Samsung technology with its high-wattage charger), Asus Zenfone 2 (Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 based "Boostmaster technology"), LG G4 (Qualcomm QC 2.0), Motorola Nexus 6 and Droid Turbo (Qualcomm QC 2.0 branded as "Turbo Charge"), and finally the OnePlus 2 and Apple iPhone 6 (no fast charging technology). Putting aside the logistics of the test, which you can read in details on the original article, here are the noteworthy results. Read More
Almost everybody knows by now what is good by having a device that supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 standard. It will charge...quickly. The negative is that if you have amassed a stockpile of USB chargers over the years, none of your old ones can give you the speedy refuel. With Aukey's QC 2.0-compatible charger going for just $7.99, or half off of the full $15.99, after a coupon code on Amazon, you can grab one without feeling its toll on your wallet.
That's even cheaper than the deal we posted just days ago for $10 each, which was quite popular itself. Read More
You're driving down the road, the cool summer breeze helping attenuate the heat of the sun, great music playing from the speakers, and nothing but empty highways ahead. Suddenly, you look at your phone and realize that the battery is almost dead but you need it to be alive to use Google Maps when you reach the next town. Your partner's phone is plugged into the car charger and they specifically told you to let it fill up before they dozed off half an hour ago. What do you do? You wish you grabbed this Aukey Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 certified charger deal, that's what.
This dual ports USB car charger has one QC 2.0 port that can charge up to 9V at 2A or 12V at 1.5A. Read More
No person who calls him/herself a tech enthusiast would ever dream of driving away from their house without a decent USB car charger in their vehicle. In my opinion, what makes a car charger great is the trifecta of good performance, decent looks, and a killer price. I just happen to have a deal on a charger that fits all three of those requirements to share with you all.
Amazon has the CHOETECH 2-Port white Quick-Charge 2.0 car charger on sale for just $10.50 after coupon today. That's down from the normal price of $16, which makes this a certifiably hot bargain. Read More
A charger is a charger is a charger, right? Pff, nope. Not all chargers are created equal for even basic charging, and if you have a device that supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0, that's even more true. Sure, all Quick Chargers charge, um, quickly...but there's more to it than just that.
This contest is now over.

Pocket knifes and USB chargers, those are two things I can never own enough of. I like to have both scattered around my house ready for use whenever the need arises. If you feel the same way about USB chargers, then take a look at this deal, I think I found another charger worth owning.

There are few places more suited to using Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 capability (also known as Adaptive Fast Charging on Samsung devices) than in the car. You might have a 20 minute commute to work and in that span of time, you can get your phone halfway charged or better with the new charging specification, compared to the meager 10-20% you might get with a conventional 2.1A output. With today's deal on this Tronsmart car charger with both QC 2.0 and a conventional 2.4A port, you can get that in your vehicle for just $10.
