    Hey all,

    I was wondering what car charger you guys are using for the s4? I have a bunch of motorola chargers, but after reading that they may damage/ or not be good for the s4, i thought it would be best to buy one that is the most compatible.

    I was thinking about getting this one
    Amazon.com: Ionic Car Charger DC Adapter for Samsung Galaxy SIV S4 i9500 2013 Model (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon) Smartphone (Black): Cell Phones & Accessories

    its the only one on amazon with 4.5/5 stars that is made for the s4/note II family.

    What do you guys think?

    Like I said I've used the same exact charger and another of the same model on 3 different makes of phones and a tablet. I've had zero issues, but if you don't feel comfortable in using it then that's your choice.

    I personally would rather stick with this charger which I find to be of high quality vs a generic brand.

    the phone is meant to be charged with a 2 amp charger.

    I doubt you will see 2.1amp charge. I have not tested the mentioned chargers. I ran a direct wired 12volt outlet to the backseat for my daughter. I pulled the fuse at the battery and placed a multimeter inline measure amperage. I used cheap and expensive chargers and usb data cords withe various Androids phones/tablets. None of the devices was a gs4. There were two gs3's. I saw a momentary spike to . 94amps. Most devices/chargers were below this level. I did not use a dedicated Android charge cable (data +/- shorted).

    Anker 24W dual port charger. This is the fastest car charger I have ever used. It puts out 2.4 amps at each port. My s4 is charged in no time even while I'm using it for navigation.

    If you look at the Travel ac charger that came with phone-it'll show 2amp.

    Been using this iFlash car charger with iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, and Samsung S4 for long time now. Fast charging. Make sure you use the 2A slot as that's make for these phones.
