    I currently have a car charger made by Motorola from 2011 that has 2 regular USB ports in it. Will I have to buy a new one that's USB-C specific? Any recommendations?
    This is the only one I've found on Amazon that has any customer reviews so far

    You don't have to. you can just grab a USB Type-A to Type C cable (think microUSB cable, but for USB C instead) and use that with the existing charger.

    it won't do the "fast charging" that the 6P is capable of, but if the adapter you have does 2A it'll charge at 2A, which for many people, will be plenty fast enough.

    I don't think we know for sure, just yet, that a QC 2.0 charger won't fast charge the 6P right?

    considering the 6P doesn't have the Quickcharge spec, and qualcomm doesn't list it as compatible, I think it's a fairly safe assumption.

    No. computer USB ports only provide 500mah of power (for USB2) or 900mah (USB 3). Some laptops have ports with extra power that might charge faster, but you won't get any kind of fast charging like how qualcomm quickcharge works.

    Any of the USB-C car chargers I've found online all only seem to support the qualcomm QC spec so I guess for now we'll have to live with regular charge speeds in the car for the 6p

    The Nomad charger looks good. One USB-C, one USB A, and 3000mAh battery all rolled into one. Discounted if ordered by Oct 29.

    What's the purpose of the battery on it if you're plugging it in anyway, is that just for bringing along with you when you leave the car?
    edit: yes it is, just read further down

    correct. they have to have an output of 5V/3A to fast charge the 6p (and 5x, for that matter).

    as far as I can tell, correct. Question about this: if there is a USB-A charger that supports 5V/3A, is it the cable that doesn't support the voltage/current or is it only USB-C to USB-C has the PD 2.0 fast charge spec?

    not necessarily right?? it could still be USB type A to C?

    we'll get the definitive answer as people get things to test, but so far the only things advertised to actually work with the "fast charging" are USB C to USB C, based on the power delivery spec

    Something that charges at 3A will be faster than something that charges at 2A because well it's charging at 3A instead of 2A, that doesn't mean it supports whatever kind of "fast charge" that the 6P supports, with variable power delivery to the device.

    To get the full 3A @ 5V you will need c-to-c with the supplied charger.

    Too bad it only supports 1.5A per port, so it's only going to charge at half the maximum possible speed.

    I don't see many options in the USB-C car charger space . . . and it's a portable charger too . . . kind of goes with the Nomad/Roadtrip/Outdoorsy theme . . . but, yes, would've liked more oomph.

    yeah, I'd imagine we start seeing them come out in the next 6 months or so. Since USB Type C is so new (only a small subset of phones use them) the need for accessories wasn't really there.

    My current plan is to use a car charger I already own. Granted, I likely won't get rapid charging out of it but I almost see that as a benefit. My issue with using my phone in my car has been heat -- between sunlight and charging, phones can really heat up (and quick charging will likely exacerbate the issue). Instead, I'll typically be happy if I just don't lose much of the charge. I'm ordering some extra USB-A to USB-C cables from Monoprice and am hoping that will work well enough.

    5V/3A output. Perfect. Let us know if it does work as advertised. Thanks!

    Russell is saying only the one plus 2 charger has indicated rapid charging on the phone but that QC2 devices are doing OK.

    I have like 4 QC2 chargers, I am hoping that they will work, not at full rate but somewhat faster than a plain old standard charger.
