    When it comes to "CHARGING RAPIDLY" on Pixel2 XL, is there a difference in the actual "usb C cable" for charging speed?

    My goal is to get "Charging Rapidly" when plugged into my car. (like when using the factory wall adapter).

    I have a QC3.0 charger from "Ailun" on amazon (can we not post links?)

    and the cable I bought turned out to not support Pixel2 XL "full speed charging"

    So what car charger will give me "Full Speed Charging" ???
    (my phone display is on long and often, so I need warp speed here)

    And will any USB 3.0 cable provide "Full Speed Charging" or what specs should I look for when purchasing?

    I don't believe so if you have QC 3.0. I do get slightly faster speed with the stock charger, which I didn't expect. Usually around 1070 mA. While my Anker charger is at 1020 MA. However it could be cable as its 6 feet. I use the Ampere app to measure.

    My biggest issue is the the way the phone slows down charging at about 90% full or so. It drops down to 550 mA, which is why it takes so long to get all the way to 100%. Is there a work around for this issue yet?

    What type of connector is on the charger?
    All of my C to C cables work with any USB C charger I own.

    No workaround that I know of. I think it is just the way Lithium Ion batteries charge. The battery when close to being full cannot take the amperage. They would probably explode.

    You need a charger that is rated for USB PD (Power Delivery)

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU6139471

    I got this one and I can confirm that is does charge my Pixel 2 XL "rapidly"

    You must also use the USB C-C cable. An A-C cable will not work.

    I have this Nekteck car charger and can confirm that it rapidly charges my Pixel 2 XL. There is also a version with a fixed/attached USB C cable. I prefer this newer model with the detached cable, as I find most attached cables weaken or break over time.

    I have been using one of these non-stop since December of 2015. It's ROCK solid. I've been really impressed with their stuff. It quick charges the Pixel 2 and charges my work iPhone at it's full 1 amp speed as well. It will throw 2.4 amps out of the USB A port at the same time as 3 amps to the USB C port.

    18 month warranty too.

    Refer to that page.

    The Pixels only support USB PD, no version of Qualcomm Quick Charge is supported. No matter what cable or charger you use, if it's not PD rated, it'll only charge at 'standard' speeds.

    QC 3.0 doesn't support USB PD, QC 4.0 does. But screw QC, just get a normal charger that supports USB PD and don't worry about it.
