Road trips can be hard on your devices. If you’re driving, chances are your phone is running Google Maps. If you’re a passenger, then you’re probably on your phone, using mobile data and battery juice. You could use a power bank, but if that’s not your style then a car charger is a must. That’s where this Tronsmart Dual USB Car Charger comes into play.
The Tronsmart Dual USB Car Charger is a compact charger that fits into the 12v charger in your car. It has two Quick Charge 3.0 ports on the end of the matte black, scratch-resistant body. The USB portion of the body will stick out a little from the 12v charger, but not enough to be really annoying. It is certainly small enough to simply keep plugged in, even when you’re not using it.
Even though it doesn’t have a USB-C port, and won’t charge my Pixel at maximum charging speeds, it will still do a good job when compared to wall chargers. I used the Ampere app to test, and found that I got 1420 mA on a wall charger (USB-A to USB-C), and 1880 mA using the Tronsmart car charger (USB-A to USB-C). Now, it’s certainly not as fast as the 2330 mA I get with a USB-C to USB-C wall charger, but it’s quite excellent. Basically, you’ll be able to get charging speeds that meet or exceed that of a USB-A to USB-C wall charger.
This Tronsmart car charger is also equipped with a neat feature — VoltIQ, by Tronsmart. It detects your device, and how much current the device can handle. The car charger then delivers the maximum amount of possible current to your device for the quickest possible charge. It’s a great feature, making this car charger perfect for not only Quick Charge devices, but also devices like the iPhone.
For what this product is — a dual port Quick Charge car charger — it’s absolutely fantastic. Even for non-Quick Charge devices, it still delivers the maximum possible charging speed. However, I’d really like to see a full-size USB plus USB-C port car charger (no pre-attached cable). In any case, if this product meets your demands, then I highly recommend you get this.
