Car chargers tend to be the type of charging electronics that most people don’t put much thought into because it’s just charging in your car, right?

Car chargers aren’t expected to charge fast because people think that car chargers are actually a very primitive way of charging but the truth is that car chargers are just as advanced as Wall chargers and power bank chargers.

The most important thing to find value is to look at the right car chargers.

The Tronsmart is an example of car chargers that provides value in nearly all four aspects of our reviewing criteria.

To know what makes this 3 port car charger on par with the best that car chargers have to offer, take a look at our Charger Harbor Review!

Powerful Charging and Quick Charge with this Tronsmart Car Charger

The Tronsmart 3 port car charger is capable of providing ample power through each of its ports.

The most notable port that is colored blue features Quick Charge 3.0. Quick Charge 3.0 and 2.0 compatible devices can charge at 3.0 Amps of charging speed.

The other two ports can provide a max charging speed of 2.4 Amps of charging speed. Although one thing that we found underwhelming was that if you used a non-compatible Quick Charge device on the Quick Charge port, then you’d only receive charging speeds of either 6.5-9V/2A or 9-12V/1.5A.

This is kind of disappointing because on one spectrum you’d be getting superfast Quick Charge speeds of charging with a compatible device; But if you use a non-compatible Quick Charge device, it won’t charge with 2.4 Amps.

Although that’s not really logical, the higher voltage within the Quick Charge port makes up for the lack of Amperage speed.

Altogether, if you’ve 2 more people in the car with you that want to charge their devices and do so quickly, then this car charger is a must. From your smartphone to iPads or other devices, will be charged at their full speeds or at least the fastest charging speed they’re able to accept.

Design

 

The higher the ports with a car charger, the bigger the size tends to be but in this case, Tronsmart truly designs their car chargers in a stylish and intelligent way.

The stem of the Tronsmart Charging cable goes into the electrical outlet very easily and is very short.

Which isn’t the case with many car chargers that are in the 3-port and 4-port range. As result, the car charger doesn’t stick out very much. The only noticeable thing about the car charger is the port end.

The port end of the car charger is quite wide which is to be expected to accommodate the 3 charging ports.

This is actually one of the best 3 port car chargers that we’ve reviewed because of the shape of the charging end; It’s an oval shape that takes the least amount of space up, with the ports taking nearly every bit of space.

It’s a well thought out design because it makes the car charger very low profile and simple to use with all the ports being visible and at the same angle.

Build

An extremely solidly built car charger that takes advantage of every bit of space that its got.

The car charger’s small design is what makes the build quality so good. The charger is able to keep everything compact and by doing so, there aren’t any components of the charger that become loose.

The car charger uses spring charging receptacles on the stem end, which in my opinion, is alright for inputting it into the charging outlet but a built in a receptacle that is depressed into a car charger proves to be better in the long run.

The Car charger takes advantage of charging techs such as Over-current control, Overcharging control, and Heat control.

The most useful type of safety technology that we found was the Heating control. In the hot months of the year, the car charger won’t be giving a full Output and that’s to be expected because it’s for the better.

That’s because if the car charger were to send out 2.4 Amps or 3.0 Amps in very hot weather then the car charger and your devices would get damaged due to high heat. It’s this well built-in technology that proves it to be strong and smart at the same time.

You can’t always have the fastest charging that you’ve come to expect but it’s for the greater good. Would you rather have a fast charging rate or have to buy a new phone and car charger?

Reliability

Like most car chargers, the reliability part mostly relies on the user end.

This car charger as we’ve mentioned in this review is powerful, designed beautifully and is built to prevent damage and control its power.

However, the car charger can only get its job done, if you’re willing to let it charge your device depending on how long you’re driving.

It’s a great wall charger for road trips not just because it’ll keep your devices charged on a long car ride but also it will be able to charge the devices of others in the car.

To be precise, 3 devices will be able to charge at the same. If you’re searching for a car charger that is able to give you the most power during your car rides, then this car charger will do definitive justice.

Summary

Power:

The power of the Tronsmart car charger is as simple as calling it strong. It has one port that has Quick Charge 3.0 that can charge Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0 compatible devices at rapid speeds.

The other two ports deliver 2.4A max charging speed.

We were just a little disappointed that the Quick Charge port won’t charge at 2.4A when using a non-compatible Quick Charge device but the increased Voltage somewhat makes up for the lost speed.

Design:

The design is the strongest point of the car charger. It takes into account every piece that’s used and how it can make itself as low profile as possible.

The charger has a short stem and a charging head that is objectively oval with the charging ports taking up every bit of space.

Build:

The build of the charger is connected to its design. Since the car charger is so compact, all the components are close to together as a way to prevent anything to fall apart.

The smart safety tech is very useful when it comes to hot weather as a way of not frying your devices or the car charger itself.

We did find that the charging receptacles are the springing kind and this car charger would have been better for it, but it’s not a deal breaker.

Reliability:

Give this car charger a chance to show you its potential and it shall deliver. The car charger is able to charge devices at their highest potential.

Also, the main attraction for this charger is that you can charge 3 devices at the same time. Going on a road trip or simply going to a location with a few people in the car, and this car charger will give power to those 3 that use it.

Although non-Quick Charge devices will receive a 2A charging speed from the Quick Charge port but with a higher voltage. The other two ports give out a 2.4A max charging speed. The design of the car charger takes advantage of every nook and cranny.

As a result, the car charger is extremely compact and low profile with the charging ports always visible and accessible.

The build of the car charger is connected to its design but what makes the Car charger so strong is the safety tech behind it. It’s a well put together wall charger that gives you the most while you charge’n drive.
