Your Pick For Best USB Car Charger: Aukey's Slim-Profile Dual Port

Shep McAllister Aug 22, 2017. 9 comments

You all wasted no time driving home your opinions about USB car chargers , but once the dust settled, Aukey’s inconspicuous dual-port charger (unsurprisingly ) finished the race with an insurmountable lead.

I like it because the face is almost flush and on cars that have a flip up port (like a 97-03 5 series), it folds down with it out of sight. Only issue would be if you take this one out to other cars, then it can be hard to remove frequently. -spngr311

Similarly, I have a flip up port on my E46 (‘03 3 series) and this is the only charger I can leave in all the time.

I never thought I could love any USB car charger, but this one has proved that wrong. - tstout

If you own a newer Android phone, Aukey also makes another version with a pair of Quick Charge 2.0 ports . Unfortunately, it won’t sit flush in your car’s outlet like your main pick, but it’ll help you maximize your charging time during your commute.
