    Default LG G2 Car Charger - What Can I Count On?

    New here, but just got two G2 (Verizon) phones for wife and I. Read much here about battery chargers and charging rate. I need two car chargers (one for each car) that I can count on to deliver a full fast charge to the phones. The Verizon version is probably fine, but costly, especially when I need two each. Any other car chargers that are known and proven to provide a fast charge to this phone?

    Thank you.

    I have gone through a lot of chargers and the G2 is very sensitive to the amount of current put out by any charger (car or home). The OEM charger that comes with the G2 is excellent as it uses the quick charge capability of the Snapdragon 800 (45 minutes to full charge). For the car I finally found the Verizon car charger (with one cord and an extra USB port) to be the best. Try to find one on sale will be your best bet.

    Buy the Verizon charger @trivor mentioned from Amazon. I bought two and they work well.

    Are you referring to this charger? Vehicle Charger with Dual Output - Verizon Wireless Verizon says it does NOT work with G2. It has a 3.4 amp output. I also do not know if the light at the cable end will fit into the plug with a case on the phone.

    There is this one, but Verizon says this one too does not work with the G2. It is 2.4 amp.
    Verizon Wireless Premium 2.1-Amp Vehicle Charger w/9' Lightning data cable - Verizon Wireless

    This is the only charger from Verizon that I can find that does work (according to Verizon), but according to the information, it requires the use of the cable from the charger that came with the phone.

    I would like to know just which Verizon car charger you are both referring to. I see three at Verizon, so far, and the one at Amazon.

    Thanks.

    Verizon Dual USB Vehicle Charger - Verizon Wireless
    I am curious as to WHY Verizon says they won't work.. there is no technical reason any of those should work correctly. Having a charger capable of putting out more current then the device needs is fine, the device will only pull what it needs.

    BTW, I have this charger and two of these cables... they charge everything my entire family owns with no issues at all

    I have this as well and confirm it works terrifically. get this. it's an unbranded oem Verizon charger and charges at 1.5+ amps. there's even a bright white led on the end of the cable that turns on whenever the cable is moved. makes finding it and the port on the phone super easy.
