Recharge your Galaxy Note 8 just as fast in the car as you do at home by getting a fast car charger. In this buying guide, we’ll explain the benefits of getting a fast car charger for the Note 8 and share a list of the best options available.
Buying the right charger will make a big difference in terms of how fast your phone recharges. Most users don’t know about this feature, and if they do, they don’t think about it when buying a car charger. Which is why we’ll recommend a few great options below.
Whether you’re trying to fix bad Galaxy Note 8 battery life or just want a faster charge, this is one of the easiest methods. Buying any random car charger isn’t going to work. Instead, you’ll want to choose one from a reputable brand. Some in our list are as cheap as $10, while others from Samsung cost a little more. Below we also explain what quick charging is and how it works.
How Quick Charging Works
The Galaxy Note 8 uses a technology called adaptive fast charging. Also known as Qualcomm Quick Charge. With this, instead of taking 3 hours to recharge phones can fill up in around 80 minutes. Additionally, it enables the Galaxy Note 8 to charge from 0-50% in just 20-25 minutes.
The charger feeds the phone more power than usual and it recharges extremely fast. Then, after 20-30 minutes it goes back to regular speeds (but still fast) to preserve the life of the battery cells. Otherwise, your battery would degrade over time and no longer hold a full charge. That’s why the first half of the charge is faster than the rest.
Without an adaptive or quick charge certified charger, the Galaxy Note 8 takes between 2-3 hours to recharge. See the benefit? In just a 20 minute drive you’ll have enough battery for the rest of the night after work, etc.
This is extremely useful, but it only works with the right type of charger. Samsung provides one fast wall charger in the box, and you’ll want those same incredible fast speeds in your car or while traveling. As a result, we’ve round-up a list of the best fast car chargers for the Galaxy Note 8 in our slideshow below.
