    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).
