A fast charging car charger can be a blessing, depending on what devices you want to charge while you drive. For the most part, many people wish to fast charge their phones while they drive, so it’s charged up when they reach their destination. However, thanks to Power Delivery, car chargers can go far beyond just phone charging, as you can even charge a laptop while you drive with a powerful enough car charger.
This review looks at this ALOGIC 100W rapid power car charger. This will likely be the only car charger you will ever need because of its 100W max output, and the two ports provide even more reliability. Let’s see just how powerful this car charger is.
So charging power is not lacking from this ALOGIC car charger as it has a 100W max output. The charger has a USB-C Power Delivery port and a USB-A Quick Charge port. The USB-C port can output 100W of Power Delivery when charging a single device from the car charger; the USB-C port also features 105W of PPS super fast charging for compatible devices.
When charging two devices simultaneously, the USB-C port drops from a 100W max output to a 65W output, but the USB-A port can still output 18W regardless of charging one or two devices simultaneously.
In my testing, I used a River 2 power station to power this car charger as it was easier to get a reading of the total wattage output of this ALOGIC car charger. The car charger will still work as intended with a cigarette lighter port in your car.
The first device that I charged from this car charger was a Lenovo Flex 5 laptop, which was able to charge at about 30W from the USB-C port, and then I plugged in a Galaxy Note 9 to the USB-A port, and my Note 9 was able to fast charge from the USB-A port. So charging a laptop and a phone with this car charger is completely possible.
With that test done, I wanted to push this car charger to its limit, so I unplugged the laptop and the Note 9 and started charging my Excitrus NitroCharge power bank, which has a 100W PD input. The Excitrus power bank could recharge at 100W when charging from the car charger alone. Then I wanted to check out the charging speed change when charging two devices, so I plugged my Note 9 into the USB-A port.
When charging the Excitrus power bank and my Note 9 simultaneously, the power bank dropped down to a 65W input speed, and the Note 9 was able to fast charge, exactly like the specs say they are.
Size and Weight
The end with the ports on this ALOGIC car charger is larger than lower wattage chargers, so it will stick out more and be more noticeable. Other than that, this car charger won’t be in the way.
The ports on this charger are on the same side, and once you plug it into a cigarette lighter port and the charger is powered, there is a marvelous green light that turns on around the ports, making it easier to see the charger at night.
This ALOGIC car charger feels high quality, and I couldn’t find any weak, loose, or cheap feeling parts with it.
If you want to fast charge phones, tablets, and even a USB-C chargeable laptop while you drive, this ALOGIC car charger is an excellent choice because of its 100W Power Delivery output. Even when charging two devices simultaneously, this car charger performs very well and is great for charging most devices.
