Pros

  • Features 2-port ports with Quick Charge so you can charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphones at the same time
  • Great build quality that you can expect from Aukey
  • Can charge standard devices at a 5V/2.4A charging speed

Car charging is one of the most useful types of ways to charge our portable devices, even though it may not seem like it. As many people commute with a car, and since your commute can be rather long, charging your smartphone while you’re driving is the best time to do it. However, for certain smartphones car charging is a lot more helpful than others.

The main reason for that is because some smartphones are compatible with fast charging tech. So it doesn’t really matter if you have a short or long commute, charging a Quick Charge compatible smartphone with a Quick Charge car charger is going to prove to be a lot faster than just a regular device.

That’s why we’re reviewing this Aukey two-port car charger with two Quick Charge ports. There aren’t very many car chargers that use two Quick Charge ports, so let’s see if this car charger is worth it.

Charging Stats for a Galaxy S8

So, this Aukey car charger is mainly meant for charging Quick Charge compatible smartphones. As there are indeed two Quick Charge ports on this car charger, so you can actually charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphone at their max charging speed. At the same time. Such as a Galaxy S8 and an LG G6 can be charge at their max power at once.

On the other hand, you can still charge two Non-Compatible Quick Charge smartphones and tablets with that charger and the ports will output a 5V/2.4A charging speed. A 5V/2.4A charging speed is still quite fast in terms of standard charging.

Fast charging a Galaxy S8 and an S6 at the same time.

As a result, if you own Quick Charge compatible smartphone, getting this car charger is a great option. While at the same time, even if you don’t have a Quick Charge smartphone, you’re still able to charge your smartphone or other USB chargeable devices quite quickly. Perhaps a passenger in your car might own a Quick Charge compatible smartphone, and therefore they would be able to charge their smartphone at their max charging speed.

Of course, the best combination would be if you charge your Quick Charge compatible smartphone and a passenger also charged their Quick Charge smartphone at the same time, as both of the ports are able to output Quick Charge charging speeds.

The best part is that you can use the max power of both ports because the max output of this car charger is 36W, and each port is able to output 18W.
