Sure, current cars are already equipped with USB or even USB-C connections for charging. The good old cigarette lighter can still be found in older models in particular. Just those who the cell phone for Navigation uses (navigation apps are a decent power drain anyway) or just want to (quickly) charge the smartphone, should invest in a car charger like the INIU 66W USB-C car charger.
INIU 66W USB-C car charger in two ports
Visually, the charger does not look too different from other car chargers. The car plug is at the back, the area gets larger towards the top and then there are on the surface two USB ports, a USB-A and a USB-C port. In between there is a small display, which can probably show the voltage of the car battery in real-time. Some have a 30W car charger from the manufacturer comments that it’s harder to remove from the lighter, thanks to the larger “head” that shouldn’t be a problem here.
As already mentioned, the charger comes with 2 USB ports. On the one hand, there is a USB-A port with support for Quick Charge 4+ and a maximum output power of 30W. There is also a USB-C port with support for Power Delivery 3.0, which supports an output power of 36W. This results in a total output power of 66W, so unfortunately this power is not possible with just one port. Depending on the notebook, this may not be enough power for fast charging.
Of course, the two ports allow two devices to be charged at the same time. With a total output of 66 W lets a Galaxy S21 up to 80% and an iPhone 13 up to 60% in only 30 minutes charge at the same time. INIU integrates a Smart Protect system and the car charger is made of aluminum alloy. The manufacturer even grants one 30-day money-back guarantee and a 3-year warranty.
It is somewhat misleading that the INIU 66W car charger claims 66W of power when it cannot provide it on one port. However, 30 or 36W per port is a good compromise and the performance is sufficient for current smartphones, Macbook Air, or tablets. The voltage display is of course a feature that I have not seen before and can potentially be important for your car.
