    Default S5 car charger?

    OK, I'm new to USB 3.0, so I'm looking for recommendations for a S5 car charger. Are there any USB 3.0 car chargers available? Do I lose on charging time if I use USB 2.0 (micro USB)? Use a USB port car charger with USB 3.0 cable? Thank you!

    Usb 2.0 should charge at about the same time as usb 3 from a car charger. You can use a USB 3.0 cable with any usb car charger. Make sure it provides 2 amps

    Also one thing to consider is do you or anyone who may be using the phone have a micro usb 2.0 device? If so then it might be more convenient to just use a USB 2.0 cable.

    Anker makes an excellent 2 amp car charger. I have been using one for about a year. It charges phones and tablets as if they were charging from the socket at home

    Amazon.com: Anker 24W Portable Dual-Port USB Car Charger with Built-in Micro USB Cable for Galaxy S5 S4; Note 3 2; the new HTC One (M8) and a USB Port for iPhone 5S 5C 5; iPad Air mini(White): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Can someone explain why it has to be 2 amps? I bought a Belkin charger, and I think it is only one amp.

    And no, I didn't get the counterfeit one.

    I assume that 2 amp just charges faster?
