Best iPhone Car Chargers: Moshi QuikDuo Car Charger with USB-C

I recently added a dashcam to my car, so I'm running out of USB ports. Fortunately, Moshi sent me the QuikDuo Car Charger (starting at $24.95) to try. I tried the higher-end model, which has a USB-A port and a USB-C port. The entry-level model has two USB-A ports. The USB-C option is great for my iPhone as I can use a USB-C to Lightning cable for fast charging (up to 50 percent in 30 minutes!). The other USB-A port is fine for my dashcam, which runs off microUSB.

While the USB-C port offers Power Delivery charging, it's likely not enough power to fully charge a running MacBook; you will be using more power than it delivers, so you'll just slow the drain but not charge the battery. You could charge a USB-C computer while it's off, though, and of course many Android devices are moving to USB-C. I only wish it had more ports!

Moshi

Pros

  • Stylish and square aluminum faceplate
  • Two ports. Choose two USB-A or one USB-A and one USB-C port
  • Up to 36 watts of power
  • Fast-charge two devices simultaneously with USB-C PD and QC.
  • Charge your iPhone to 50 percent in 30 minutes using USB-C to Lightning

Cons

  • Not enough power to fully charge a running MacBook
  • Two ports might not be enough for today's gadget-equipped cars

Final Verdict

The Moshi QuickDuo Car Charger from Moshi can charge two devices at once, and even deliver Power Delivery for fast charging with the USB-C option.
