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. Google promises 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 the 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.

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

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.
