    What is everyone using for car chargers and or additional chargers? Honor's site doesn't have any for sale and they use a 9V/2A charger.

    If you want fast charging (9v/2a) then you would need to get their proprietary charger.

    Otherwise you can use any 5v/2a charger.

    There have been reports of the qc 2/3 ones charging very slow.

    I know it's crazy I called tech and they said their working on getting some accessories on their site. The quick charge is Qualcomm 2.0 so others should work it just doesn't say fast charging when charging.
    Andrew indicated that his would charge at 5v/1a speeds using qc 2/3

    " When plugging it into my Quick Charge 3.0 wall plug or Quick Charge 2.0 battery it would only pull about 5V/1A, which is rather slow ... a "standard" 5V/2A charging plug gave it the best speeds outside of its own in-box charger. "

    I use a Monoprice car charger with one of their cables. It has a regular USB type and a type C port. Haven't tried the C to C to see if quick charging works though.

    The fast charging on the Honor 8 is NOT Qualcomm Quick Charge.

    It most definitely isn't qc certified. It probably uses some variation, and looks to not be fully compatible

    I just ordered this from Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018TGGH4E/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    We'll see how it works. It says it supports 9V/2A.

    So, I received the charger and tried it out, but it does NOT do "Fast Charging". I think that one of the big cons about the Honor 8 is the lack of accessories like car chargers, standard chargers, cases and screen protectors. I'm hoping that with the popularity of this phone that some manufacturers take notice and make these accessories.

    Yeah, maybe fast charging is just not a thing. They should work on having accessories in their store.

    I'm wondering how the Honor 8 would work with the Vinsic car charger https://amazon.com/Vinsic%C2%AE-Char...cUvbUpU5413305 or the Google dual port wall charger https://store.google.com/product/usb...t_charger...Or my tenergy charger https://amazon.com/Tenergy-Charge-Ch...cUvbUpU5413305. These all manage to charge my Nexus 5x rapidly. Even if they can just hit the 5V/2A spec, that will be better than a slow charger.

    Andrew mentioned in his review that 5v/2a chargers did work, so it is worth a try.

    If we are not able to get a quick charger for it (e.g. car charger), what specs should we be looking for? 5v/2a? Is that the highest capacity (don't know if this is the right term) to be looking for?

    Did it charge as fast as the stock honor 8 charger?

    The tenergy charger I have does charge at 5V 2A, which is better than slow charging. https://www.amazon.com/Tenergy-Charge-Charger-Samsung-Wireless/dp/B00OVD3FEU/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1474297920&sr=8-3&keywords=tenergy

    I will do some digging around to see if I have any 5V/2A charging bricks lying around.
    In the meantime anyone have a recommendation on a good case that shows off the fabulous Sapphire Blue color? The Terrapin case I got from Amazon is frosted and only shows the Honor 8 writing and nothing else, grrr....

    One of the Honor cases will do, the minimal one, but it's not really protective. The TPU case is nice but the back is textured (?)
    I'm not sure how to describe it.

    Do you mind sending me a link? For some reason the device I have did not come with a case.

    This is the minimal case: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=6nr31prk (you can get from Amazon too)

    Mine only came with a TPU case because I ordered from B&H Photo and that was part of what they included when you buy the phone from them. This is the TPU case: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...cUvbUpU5433115 (this is on honor's site too)

    I'm at work but when I get home, I can take a picture of it to possibly show the texture thing.

    Thanks for your help. Looking forward to the picture of the case whenever you get a chance to post it.
