1. Tagg Power Bolt Dual USB Car Charger
The biggest advantage of this device is the fact that it comes with Qualcomm certified Quick Charge 3.0. As a result, it can charge your phones much faster than other standard chargers. The built quality is slightly poor, but the device doesn’t heat during operation and gets its job done pretty nicely.
Price: Rs. 899
2. iVoltaa 3.4A Dual Port Rapid Car Charger
This charger is from the famous iVoltaa brand. It comes with dual charging ports and an Intelli-Charge Technology which modulates the supply of current as per the device plugged in. Hence, it is safe to use for varied mobile devices. But the biggest advantage of this car charger is the fact that it comes with a free charging cable as well. So you don’t need to purchase it separately or use your regular charger’s cable either.

3. Sony CP-CADM2/BC WW Car Charger
This is the best car charger we have used during our test. However, it has been given the third rank as it looks slightly overpriced.

Built quality is supreme and it works like a charm for all devices, thanks to the over-charge current protection.
