USB-C is new to the market and that’s why accessories can be limited and very expensive. When looking for a good USB-C car charger, I was looking for something affordable, yet high quality. I stumbled upon this USB-C car charger by a company called JETech. At right under 10$, it was definitely worth a try and I ended testing one myself to see if it lived up to the good reviews.
The thing that interested me most with this charger, besides the fact that it has a traditional USB port, is that it claims it can charge up to 3A using the built in 3ft. USB-C cable which means it will rapidly charge my Nexus 5X. So testing the device, it does in fact show up as “Rapidly Charging” my device.
I also went ahead and did some more technical tests, and compared how much current my phone would draw using the JETech USB-C car charger compared to the LG USB-C charger that came with my Nexus 5X. Using the Ampere app I found out that my phone (50% battery at the time) was charging at 1720mA which was impressive.
The LG USB-C charger that came with my phone still charged at a slightly greater current but I was still highly impressed with the JETech USB-C car charger and would highly recommend it. Not only did I find it to be the best USB car charger that I have tried so far, but it also is one of the cheapest at right under $10.
