Never run out of battery while you’re on the go!
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is designed to let you do more — as long as your battery doesn’t run out!
With USB-C and wireless charging capabilities, there’s more than one way to keep your Galaxy S9 topped up while in the car. Make sure you arrive at the party with a fully charged phone by getting a car charging accessory for your new phone.
Aukey Car Charger with 5V/3A USB-C and Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A
Aukey makes two slightly different versions of its car charger, and you have to look at the details to tell which one you’re getting — the quickest way to tell is that this model has Quick Charge 3.0 branding. The rest of the casing is the same, which is to say it’s compact and doesn’t stand out.
This version of the charger has a USB-C port with 15W of output, which will charge up your Galaxy S9 or S9+ extremely quickly, nearly on par with a wall charger. In addition, the USB-A port below it has Quick Charge 3.0, which will charge the Galaxy S9 or other modern Android phones extremely fast, just as they would from a wall charger.
With charging speeds on both ports that can fill up your Galaxy S9 at the maximum rate, this charger makes it easy for you and your passenger to charge up with whichever cable they need. And it costs just $16.
Spigen 30W Quick Charge 3.0 Dual USB-A car charger
Spigen is a popular brand in smartphone accessories, and its dual USB car charger is a high-quality part that won’t overheat your Galaxy S9 or S9+. While it’s not USB-C PD compliant since it uses USB-A, it supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 standard, which still offers max charging speeds for Galaxys and can also charge up most other Android phones at their fastest rate.
The beauty of the Spigen charger is that it supports a total of 30W between the two ports, so even with two phones plugged in they’ll both charge up at the maximum rate. The best part? It’s only $10 — for some people, that’s worth giving up a USB-C port for.
iOttie Easy One-Touch 4 QI Wireless Charging Mount
The Galaxy S9 allows for wireless charging, so why not take advantage of that fact while charging your phone in your car?
This car mount from iOttie is one of the best I’ve tested, and worked quite well — even with a case on. It includes a 12V adapter with a hardwired cable for supplying power to the mount that includes a secondary USB port for charging an additional device the wired way.
With a telescopic arm and mounting options for the dash or windshield, this is a very versatile car mount that will charge your Galaxy S9 as you drive. The $50 price tag is worth it if you need a mount and a charger.
