Apple’s iPhone is basically the most used smartphones on the market. Yes, we know there are many, MANY, Android smartphones out there and a lot of people use them. However, when it comes to iPhones it’s more well-known than basically any other Android smartphones. As Apple’s marketing has caught the heart of many people and it’s the one major type of smartphone that basically our entire society waits for a new release of.
In this case, though, we’re talking about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 and the best car chargers that you should use with them. Both of these smartphones are basically the basis of what the iPhone represents. With the iPhone 6 being the final iPhone before Apple got rid of the headphone jack, and the iPhone 7 is the one without it. One of the major things about these iPhones is their large batteries.
With the iPhone 6 having a battery capacity of 1,810mAh and the iPhone 7 has a battery of 1,960mAh. So when the battery runs low, there’s quite a lot to refill. Car chargers are one of the best chargers for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 and that’s because it’s the moment that you’re not using your smartphone, and it’s just charging. Another thing is that these two iPhones don’t make use of any special fast charging tech, so you’re fine getting standard car chargers.
That said, we’ve chosen the best car chargers that have the fastest standard charging speed.
