    are you quick charging it? shouldn't take an hour to go from 60-100% ... I charge mine before bed or in the morning, sometimes every other day and get 5 hours SOT on average ... sometimes more or less depending on how much clash of clans I'm playing.

    dark wallpapers, low brightness, 30 second sleep and a great signal from VZ definitely help.
    Yes, it's on the Google-supplied USB-C charger and reports charging rapidly. I didn't say it takes the entire hour. I usually plug it in next to my sofa when I walk there from the bedroom, then make/eat breakfast, shower, shave, etc. By the time I'm done with that it's charged unless I had run it down more than normal.

    This may be my first car charger to try, but I think I'm going to wait until that price comes down some. 25 dollars is a little high for me, even if it's QC 3.0 and type C. I wish I could get in on some of these free to give my "honest" opinion programs that seem to flood the reviews at first.

    As mentioned earlier, I have this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...cUvbUpU4932150 It is rock solid awesome. I paired it with this USB C cable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...cUvbUpU4932150

    I get Charging Rapidly on my 6p while it charges my wife's iPhone 6s at what seems to be full speed. I know it's a pricey combo, but I spend a LOT of time in the car so it's worth it.

    That one is the first one they came out with, that I bought and that Benson tested and found it not in compliance. One of the other guys who tests this stuff mentioned that Tronsmart was coming out with a device that would be compliant with the 5V/3A standard. After their first one, I'll wait until its tested before I take the plunge. This is the newer one I believe since I hadn't seen it before.

    Thanks for the link. I purchased the original cable and now it has blown both the power outlet fuses in my 2013 Toyota Highlander. I just contacted Tronsmart about returning it. I hope they will take it back.

    ETA: I did some experimenting and found the fuse problem was caused by a Verizon charger for my son's Nexus 4. I quickly threw it in the trash! I plugged in my Tronsmart and the 6P says it is charging rapidly. I was in the car for about 15 minutes and it charged from 55% to 71%, so I'm not really sure if the original Tronsmart is bad. Going to look for the app to test it and see what that tells me.

    I found this spreadsheet for accessories for our 6P phones. Check this out before purchasing anything. I think I'm going to go with the Vinsic Car Charger instead of the new Tronsmart.

    The issue with that spreadsheet is it appears to be outdated -- everything is dated from the end of November. There are several new accessories (such as the new Transmort car charger) that have been released since November.

    Well, it's updated through 12/29/2015, so that's pretty current. Looks like everything with a NO has a date of 11/30/2015.

    I was going to use that one, but some people gave it bad reviews, so I went with a better known brand. I'll give it a mini review after the first day:
    Amazon.com: USB Type C Car Charger, AUKEY 27W Dual Port USB Car Charger for Nokia N1, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, OnePlus 2, Apple MacBook 12 inch, Lumia 950, Lumia 950XL and more - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I just used my Aukey charger for 40 minutes for the first time. YouTube in the background and navigation running. It kept my 6p at 100% and when it's charging it says "charging rapidly". It's well built too and has a nice long cable. I'm satisfied with my purchase. The cable is thick too like the original USB-C cable.

    Did you go with the Vinsic? And if so, has yours stopped charging rapidly? Mine has, after less than a month.

    Sorry, just seeing this now. No, I ended up getting a Tronsmart and it works great! Even though it's now on the "no" list, it does charge rapidly.

    The Tronsmart charger on that list is an older charger that have been discontinued. Tronsmart came out with a replacement that looks just like the older cable that appears to be compliant (though I haven't seen it tested). This version, since it is merely a revision, still has the reviews for the older, non-compliant, model and has never been retested (so is still on Benson's list). This model is easily identifiable as it has the USB cable built in and not removable, along with a USB-A port.

    I, and many here, have bought a different Tronsmart charger which is fully compatible, though isn't on the spreadsheet. I prefer this one as it does not have the built in cable, merely two ports (one USB-C and one USB-A).

    Tronsmart had released a updated version about this charger and Benson gave 5 stars to it.

    I use this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...cUvbUpU5188465

    Works faultlessly and charges the phone well; even if using Bluetooth for hands-free and music as well as sat-nav on etc!
