Inateck quick charge car charger review

Car chargers are a dime a dozen, everyone has one. But it’s unfortunate that tons of people don’t know that their phones have some form of quick charging and that their in-car charging doesn’t have to be so slow. Car electrical outlets are capable of outputting more power, but yesteryear chargers hold back because of past phone technology.

Fortunately, newer car chargers are setting the record straight. One such solution was provided to us by Inateck.

This 30W charger brings multiple ports and a Quick-Charge 2.0 compatible port to make sure you’re juiced up throughout the day. Let’s check it out.

Design

Inateck’s multi-port charger has a fairly basic design, but nothing you wouldn’t expect from a car charger. The inner channel goes into the car’s power outlet, and the body widens on where the ports reside.

The device is entirely made of glossy plastic, which gives it a nice sheen. But as typically the case with glossy material, it does catch fingerprint smudges.

Fortunately, the plastic doesn’t feel cheap. There’s no creaking, flexing plastic, or questionable seams in the build. It feels like it’ll stand the test of time.

For the power output, we have visually distinct Quick-Charge 2.0 port (colored with green) and two 2.4A ports for everything else. It’s great that Inateck made the QC 2.0 port visually distinguishable for quick recognition of which port to plug into.

Functionality

Inateck packed 30W worth of power output in this car charger. This means that even with a QC 2.0 port, it can still output via two 5V/2.4A ports at the same time.

The charger worked very well in my test runs. QC 2.0 charging was as speedy as advertised, and I could juice up the rest of my gear in tandem.

Sorry about the dirty interior

When in the power outlet, the charger doesn’t take up too much space. Inateck did well in minimizing the device’s footprint. My only complaint is that it’s unusually hard to remove from the outlet. I would recommend Inateck to ease up on the gripping force.

Inateck promises safe charging due to the use of “industry grade materials and premium circuitry” in the internal design. The packaging includes one 4ft micro-USB cable.

Final Thoughts

Inateck’s quick charging car solution is a pleasure. The design is minimal and the build is sturdy. It works as advertised and keeps multiple devices juiced up so you can avoid that dead-battery panic moment.

You can find Inateck’s car charger on its Amazon page, going for $17.99 at the time of this writing. It could certainly be a great holiday gift for someone who needs to catch up with the times.
