If you own an older car, chances are it’s not equipped to perform modern tasks like charging a smartphone on the go. But, per usual, Amazon's got your back and keeping you in the future with a ton of high-quality USB car chargers. But we found a particularly great one at a great price for your end-of-summer road trips. We’re willing to bet that the Hussell USB Car Charger Adapter — on sale for $6 (down from $20) — is speedier than the wall charger that came with your phone. And shoppers seem to agree — it has earned a five-star rating from more than 26,000 reviewers.
The lightning-fast Hussell USB Car Charger Adapter features two USB ports that deliver up to six times the power of the charger that came with your phone. It even protects against over-charging and short-circuiting. Translation: Your phone won’t get fried.
The charger is ideal for Android and Apple phones and can be used for topping off battery packs, tablets and GPS devices too.
"I am super impressed with this little car charger," raved a five-star reviewer. "I purchased it for a 700-plus-mile road trip this summer and was very pleased. My phone was running multiple apps including Google Maps and a podcast the entire time I drove, and my phone never went below 100%..."
This USB car charger is fast. Those two USB-A ports deliver up to 80 percent faster speeds than traditional car chargers, and one of them uses Qualcomm Quick Charger 3.0 technology for even faster speeds. Now your phone can go from tapped out to fully charged in minutes instead of hours.
"This charger did the trick," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "...It charges my phone at near warp speeds, far exceeding a normal car charger’s capability..."
At this price, the Hussell USB Car Charger Adapter should go in your cart immediately.
