    I need a car charger and home (outlet) charger that can charge both a Note 4 and an LG G5. Can you recommend one for each? Thanks! I'm assuming one charger of each and a cable for each phone is what I need.

    If you're looking at a wall charger, these are my favorites. The QC 3.0 puts out the maximum your device can handle.
    Future-proofed with 2 @ QC 3.0 ports: PA-T16 Wall Charger
    Future-proofed with one QC 3.0 port plus 2 @ 2.4A. https://www.anker.com/products/A2032111

    For the car, you can go future-proofed with this one: CC-T8 Dual Port Car Charger with Quick Charge 3.0

    For the most compact non-QC, this one is great. I have one, and the cover on the socket actually closes over it: CC-S1 Mini 24W Dual Port Car Charger

    All these are readily available via Amazon, etc.

    Ok, one more question. How about the cables themselves? I'd like ones that won't break or stop working because of the bending at the ends. Preferably braided or kevlar? Thanks again.

    No doubt in my mind about those. Anker Powerline+. My wife and son were going through a lightning cable a month. I got them these, and they've been good for almost a year so far. We have the Powerline + in Lightning, micro USB and USB C. They're a few dollars more, but they last.

    The problem I'm finding after looking at these is that two of the chargers are not available and the anker powerline+ cables are not available in type c to usb 2.0. Unless I'm looking at it wrong.

    Ok, that's where I'm confused then. Both ends of the cord are the small type c plug. They won't fit those chargers. Do I need an adapter?

    The 3.0 will work with those chargers? I'm so used to the 2.0.

    Yes, 3.0 is backwards compatible with 2.0 and 1.1.

    And 3.0 is better with these cables, I'm guessing?

    I wasn't trolling with that last part. I just don't know how 3.0 is better when it comes to charging. Data transfer I understand.

    Yes, 3.0 is approx 25% faster, IIRC.
