Our Pick - Anker PowerDrive 2

  Brand - Anker PowerDrive 2   Model - A2310011
  Item Weight - 27 Grams   Package Dimensions - 6.5 x 2.8 x 2.8 cm

With 2 ports, each ports can provide upto 24 watts of power at the same time.

It is small, but not so smaller enabling easy handling within the car. It handled devices such as multiple iPhone, iPads, OnePlus phones, Samsung Galaxy, charging them individually at its full speed. This product comes from a quality provider. The price is so low that you can consider for dual-port charger.  Ofcourse mostly we're going to travel with people in car and demand for dual-port will always exist.

Good One - Scosche USBC242M ReVolt Dual

 

  Brand - Scosche USBC242M ReVolt Dual   Model - USBC242M
  Item Weight - 9.1 Grams   Package Dimensions - 3.8 x 6.8 x 15.2 cm

People who look for compact charger mostly gets satisfied with this product.

Scosche USBC242M ReVolt Dual is a 12 watts power supplier and a top seller for couple of years now. As said before its a great option if you want a smaller one. It looks better and feels like ruggedly constructed, flush-mounted to the dash once installed.  You'll like its look and feel as a good addition inside your car. It will last longer than the other cheaper ones which we've ignored in this list. If you are not interested to go with Anker, Scosche will be the next option.  Obviously opinions differ.

Also Great - Anker PowerDrive 4

  Brand - Anker PowerDrive 4   Model - AK-A2240011
  Item Weight - 23 g   Package Dimensions - 5.3 x 3.4 x 7.8 cm

Most people wont have a requirement to to charge 4 smartphones or tablets from a single outlet. If you disagree to this and you have a big circle of people joining your car, this is a great option.

Anker PowerDrive 4 is a 4-Port USB car charger from Anker especially helpful while traveling with full set of people. As told earlier it enables us to charge 4 devices at full speed simultaneously. Rithanya.com's has a great impression on Anker that you'll never go wrong with Anker products since they offer top quality. It is sleek and works exactly as intended, but one thing I'd like to point out is the overall construction quality.

Also Great- Aukey CC-T8

 

  Brand - Aukey CC-T8   Model - CC - T8
  Item Weight - 9.1 Grams   Package Dimensions - 3.3 x 3.3 x 6.1 cm

The best option for phones that support Qualcomm’s fast-charging standard.

If you have a phone that supports Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 and want to take advantage of faster charging speeds, go with the Aukey CC-T8. It packs two ports, each of which supports Quick Charge 3.0 speeds—and is backward-compatible with 2.0, meaning there’s no “wrong” port to connect to. Its a small and good plastic material that works perfectly as mentioned in the product spec. Ports are quick charge and also has backward compatibility. Worthful product for the price and Rithanya.com would say that its a value for money.

A best car charger. Both ports provides 36 watts Qualcomm quick charge 3.0. It charges two devices simultaneously with super fast speeds and didnt heat much too.

Also Great - Verizon USB Type-C Car Charger with Fast Charge Technology

  Brand - Verizon USB Type-C Car Charger with Fast Charge Technology   Model - 4327070737
  Item Weight - 91 g   Package Dimensions - 15.2 x 10.2 x 5.1 cm

The only charger that you can trust to charge a laptop within the car, but at lesser speed.

Verizon USB Type-c car charger with Fast Charge Technology is capable of charging at up to 27 Watts and it adhers to USB PD standards. We can’t guarantee that it can work with every laptops, but it provides its promised charge rate capacity.

The Competition - Nonda’s Zus

 

  Brand - Nonda’s Zus   Model - ZU22BKRN-3
  Item Weight -386 g   Package Dimensions - 15.2 x 10.2 x 10.2 cm

Nonda’s Zus is a more-advanced charger that provides information about your car and its whereabouts in addition to powering your devices. It has two 2.4-amp USB ports, both of which accept a USB plug in either orientation. Our tests showed that both ports worked as advertised. Connecting the Zus to your phone via Bluetooth and installing the Zus app unlocks the capability to (relatively accurately) see where your car is parked and how to get there, share the car’s location with family members, monitor the car’s battery health, and, for a fee, track your mileage. Whether these features are valuable is subjective, and the parking locator may be superfluous—some smartphones already offer similar features. (For example, if you have an iPhone running iOS 10 connected to your car via Bluetooth, Maps can automatically note your parking location.) Overall, the Zus offers solid hardware at a reasonable price with some neat tricks, but we don’t think most people need it over the PowerDrive 2.

All but one of the nine two-port, 4.8-amp chargers we tested performed as promised. Small details kept them from earning our top pick, but most of them work fine and would be decent buys if you find one at a substantially lower price than our picks.

The Competition - Aukey CC-S1 Dual USB Car Charger

  Brand - Aukey CC-S1 Dual USB Car Charger   Model - CC-S1
  Item Weight -9.1 Grams   Package Dimensions - 3.6 x 2.3 x 2.3 cm

The Aukey CC-S1 Dual USB Car Charger was a former runner-up. It’s so impressively small that we actually consider it too small: Though the charger sits flush with most ports, looking like something that’s built into the car, it’s actually difficult to remove. The Scosche charger isn’t that much larger, and is much easier to take out.

The Competition - KabelDirekt 2 Port High Speed Car Charger

The KabelDirekt 2 Port High Speed Car Charger are identical to one another save for the name and model numbers printed on the side. They’re both fine options, but they don’t come from brands with strong reputations.

  Brand - Aukey 4-Port USB Car Charger   Model - CC-T4
  Item Weight -100 g   Package Dimensions - 9.3 x 2.1 x 4.5 cm

The Aukey 4-Port USB Car Charger, on the other hand, is a bit problematic. Though the company promises 9.6 amps of total output, which should mean 2.4 amps per port, we measured just 2.1 amps per port.

  Item Weight -14 g   Package Dimensions - 5.9 x 2.6 x 2.6 cm

Belkin’s USB-C Car Charger + USB-C cable charges your USB-C type enabled device quickly and efficiently while in your car. But costs more than most of the models since it has only one charging port.  There are no problems such as overheating, under charging issues found. This is one of the very few car charger that actually supports 3A fast charging.

 

The Competition - Choetech’s USB Type C Car Charger with Quick Charge 3.0

 

  Brand - Choetech’s USB Type C Car Charger with Quick Charge 3.0   Model - suid-B01AAGH8OY

  Brand - Anker’s PowerDrive+ 4   Model -AK-A2240011
  Item Weight -23 g   Package Dimensions - 5.3 x 3.4 x 7.8 cm

Anker’s PowerDrive+ 4 is quite huge piece, and a heaviest car charger. It’s also expensive. It has two 2.4-amp USB-A ports plus a Quick Charge 3.0 port in addition to its USB-C port.

Best things are, It is hefty, metal item, and it feels like a nice item rather than something you pick up at a cheap price. It stays in the port and does not disconnect. The USB-C port can even run Macbook Pro.  Moreover, PowerDrive+ 4 is a Premium 4-Port USB Car Charger with USB-C & Quick Charge 3.0 From ANKER, USA's Leading USB Charging Brand - Faster and safer charging with our advanced technology.
