5 Best Car Chargers for the Google Pixel

Google’s new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones have great battery life, but everyone needs a few extra chargers. More specifically, a car charger capable of topping off your battery as fast as possible. Here we’ve roundup a collection of the best car chargers for the Google Pixel. All with support for USB Type-C and fast rapid charging technology.

With a big 5.5-inch display, sleek metal design and a great camera, users are loving Google’s new phone that was announced on October 4th. Now that it’s available owners will need cases, accessories, and chargers.

Quick, Turbo or Rapid Fast charging are all names companies use to describe the latest in battery technology. It allows phones to recharge safely from 0-50% in less than 25 minutes. Owners are promised 7 hours of battery after 15 minutes on the charger. So we’ve found USB Type-C chargers that will deliver exactly that while you’re on the go.

With that said, those who choose to buy one of the many quick car chargers we’ve outlined below will get the same fast recharging speeds both at home and in the car. Perfect for a night out or on the way to work, when you notice there’s only 28% battery left.

As you may already know, Pixel phones have a USB Type-C port on bottom which is reversible and can be plugged in both directions. It won’t work with old cables though. Meaning you’ll need multiple new ones for the car and around the house. Not to mention some new chargers. Even if you have a few old car chargers, these ones offer faster charging speeds.

Don’t revert to old cables or chargers that won’t deliver the faster charging speeds this phone has to offer. Instead, check out these five great fast car chargers we’ve outlined below, and buy one for your Pixel. Every charger below is from a brand we know, use and trust.

Tronsmart Dual Charger with Type-C

Tronsmart Dual Charger with Type-C

Tronsmart has a dual port charger that's my favorite. It features fast charging technology, a USB port to plug in any cable you have (micro or Type-C) to charge multiple different devices, even an iPhone. Best of all, there's a built-in USB Type-C cord to charge the Pixel. It puts out 33w of power which is more than enough.

This will recharge the Pixel at the fastest possible speed, then accommodates other devices with the extra port.  It's also Benson Leung-approved, a Google employee who's been reviewing USB Type-C cables to make sure they're safe. Because not all cables are made with quality and care, sadly. 

This is our first choice for Pixel and XL users.

    Its not possible to have a charger which fits both USB-C and Quick Charge standards as both have conflicting standards – also the AUKEY USB-C wire sold on amazon does not meet correct USB-C standards – beware this product may not be good for your phone

    What about Elephone car chargers? At Geekbuying they’re really cheap.

    You state that the Tronsmart car charger will charge the Pixel at the fastest possible speed, but that is not correct. Per the Google Doc shared by Benson and Nathan, it does not charge the Pixel at the full 18W speed, as it only supports 5V/3A, and to charge the Pixel at full speed it would need to be able to charge at 9V/2A. That is one of the reasons they rated this charger a +1 on a scale of -3 to +3.

    Here is the Google doc spreadsheet for reference: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vnpEXfo2HCGADdd9G2x9dMDWqENiY2kgBJUu29f_TX8/pubhtml#

    So as of 2016-12-24, there are no fully approved 12volt car chargers. That’s disturbing.
