    I'm looking for a good car charger for my new Samsung Galaxy S8. What car chargers do you use and can recommend?

    Update: Just ordred the Quick Charge 3.0 AUKEY Car Charger , looks really good

    I put these two items in the car. The wireless charger fit perfectly in one of the storage spaces - so I can drop the phone in and it charges - with an additional USB cable connected to the other port for fast (er) charging if needed.

    I use that also. When it works it's awesome however lately it seems when it's hot in my truck it won't charge. It needs to cool down before it will start to charge. I find that annoying. Not sure if it's the charger or the vehicle. I've tested the cable, it's not that.

    I've never observed that and it's gotten quite hot in my truck. Strange.

    I only trust Factory OEM chargers. Then use the adapter that came with the phone.

    Or these if you want extras.

    This is the one I use. I've had it about a month and so far, so good.

    Currently 13.99 at Amazon. I just bought one. Be aware though that it says it's not QC rated.

    Where does it say that? Anker's web site indicates it is Quick Charge 3.0.

    Damn... that's pretty misleading with the Quick Charge 3.0 statement on their site... sure it's missing the Qualcomm mention but most will overlook and assume, like I did. Interesting.

    EDIT: The description of the one I got is different and does mention Quick Charge.

    https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...cUvbUpU5843950

    Two different models? The 24W one is older, I got the 39W one.

    Sure is. Well that's a bummer, but it'll still go to good use. Besides I don't wanna pay $30 for a charger.

    I got this one. It's only a single USB, but it's true fast-charging, and it's flush...it doesn't protrude out like almost all others. I've got other USB ports in my car, so I can live with the single fast-charging one in front.

    What is the difference between the chargers. I ordered a Samsung Car Charger with cable on eBay for $9. What exactly does the Anker and other more expensive chargers do?

    My charger will sit in my car center console, so it's not visible. Looks don't matter.

    Don't they ALL charge the S8 the same?
