    When I'm traveling in my car and need to recharge my cell phone, which is the quickest or most efficient way to do so: Using a USB adapter that plugs into the cigarette lighter, or plugging directly into the USB port provided by the car's manufacturer?

    Just wondering if there is a definitive answer why one may be better than the other, and the reason why? Many thanks for making me a more enlightened individual.

    For the s5, you just need 5v/2a. This should work

    For newer devices then there are faster chargers, but the s5 doesn't support them anyways

    I prefer using a USB cig lighter adapter with Qualcomm fast charging feature and 2.0 Amp output for faster charging of my Galaxy S6. I think the built in USB ports in my Ford Explorer are only 1.5 Amps output.

    Thanks. Appreciate the feedback. Likely the built-in USB port in my Equinox is the same then.
