The car charger isn’t thought to be a handy charging electronic to charge our devices. That said, car chargers can actually be handy if your someone that drives quite a lot and requires to use their portable devices once you’re out of your car. That is basically true for everybody as most people own smartphones, and it doesn’t just stop there as we have devices such as tablets and laptops that require charging.

Charging laptops while you’re driving is something that sounds not possible. That said, it is now possible to charge certain laptops in your car without any hassle. The laptop has to use USB-C to charge from, so you can use a USB-C Power Delivery car charger to charge it. USB-C Power Delivery is a new type of charging tech that more devices are becoming compatible with because it’s used with the new standard that is USB-C.

So we’re here to review this Nekteck USB-C Power Delivery wall charger that isn’t just like your regular car charger, as this one features powerful charging that’s able to go further with its power for certain devices. It also has another port too. So let’s see if Power Delivery car chargers are really what they’re chalked up to be.


Output Charging:

There are two charging ports on this Nekteck car charger. One is the main reason you’re getting this charger in the first place, and the other one is just a little something extra.

USB-C Power Delivery Port


Well, if you haven’t already figured it out, the USB-C Power Delivery port with this car charger is the main part of it. If you’re getting this car charger, it’s because of its Power Delivery charging, and the best part is that it’s very powerful.

The Power Delivery charging speed is 45W. 45W of charging power is higher than the average used 30W charging speed that most other Power Delivery chargers tend to use. So what can you do with 45W of charging power that you can’t do with 30W? Well, certain laptops charge faster with the use of a 45W port.

For example, the MacBook Pro 13-inch laptop from Apple can charge fast with 45W of charging power because its max charging speed is 61W. So many laptops that do use USB-C Power Delivery to charge can charge at or near their max charging speed with this car charger.

When it comes to charging smartphones and tablets with this car charger, you can rest assured that they’re able to charge at their max charging speed. PD compatible smartphones like the Google Pixel 2 and the Galaxy S8 that are also Quick Charge compatible have a Power Delivery charging speed of 27W. So this car charger can provide an ample amount of charging power to those smartphones.

USB-A Port


There’s also a standard USB-A port on this car charger, and it has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A (12W). So it’s able to charge standard devices at a fast enough charging speed, but it does not feature Quick Charge so that you know.

Max Output:

The max output of this car charger is 57W. So you can use the max power of the USB-C Power Delivery port and the USB-A port simultaneously as both of their max outputs are separate and not together.


Size and Weight:

The size of this car charger is small, but at the same time, that can be said about basically all car chargers on the market. This charger has a length of 2.9 inches and a width of 1.6 inches. The weight of the charger is 3.2 Ounces.

It’s not so large that it’ll obstruct you’re driving or anything like that. The part where the charging ports are on this car charger is quite large, though, and noticeable too. That said, the large part is likely largely because of USB-C Power Delivery, and to accommodate the fast charging tech, they had to make the car charger larger.

Functional Components:


Using this car charger is very simple. As all, you have to do is place the car charger into a 12Volt outlet, and you’re ready to plug in your charging cables and charge your devices. You’ll find a small Blue LED power indicator at the front, where the charging ports are, that shows that the charger is ready to use.


Structure and Material:

The entirety of this car charger is made of plastic, and that’s really the case with most car chargers on the market. Two main parts make this charger whole: the large front part and the back small part wwithh the charging ports.


With such powerful charging, this Nekteck car charger, with its Power Delivery usage, gets warm if you’re using it for long periods. It’s not a safety hazard, though, as the charger automatically slows down charging for your device if it gets too hot.


This is the type of car charger you should purchase if you want to change your USB-C Power Delivery compatible devices while you’re driving. If you don’t own any Power Delivery compatible smartphones, it’s best to go with a car charger such as the Anker PowerDrive 2, which has just standard ports. The use of a USB-A port with this car charger is nice, but it’s not enough of a reason to get it if you can’t find a use for the USB-C Power Delivery port.



Charging power is the reason that you’re getting this car charger in the first place, with its use of USB-C Power Delivery and 45W of charging power from it. The USB-A port can also be used simultaneously, and you can even use the max power of both ports simultaneously.


It’s an easy car charger to use, and the use of a Blue LED light is nice to let you know that you’re ready to use the car charger.


This car charger’s build quality is pretty good, and it does get warm when you use Power Delivery. At the same time, the car charger does slow down charging when it does get too hot.


This is a very reliable car charger for anyone that’s searching for a car charger to charge their USB-C Power Delivery compatible devices while they’re driving, as this Nekteck car charger offers more power than the usual 30W that most other chargers offer.
