When you need to make the absolute most of your time on the road, look no further than Anker: simultaneous, full-speed ports for all of your devices.
Full speed for two.
At 18W / 3.6A, Anker's Car Charger is the first and smallest adapter capable of allowing the latest version of iPad and a smartphone to achieve their fully-intended charging speeds, simultaneously. Compatible with both Apple and Android devices, and powerful enough to handle future releases, this may well be the last charger you'll ever have to buy.
Unlike some competitors, we use only top-grade microchips in the manufacturing of our chargers. The reason behind this is simple: we'll always value reliability and speed over cost. We realize the importance of keeping your products safe, so we've incorporated a unique dual-circuit protection system for Apple and Android, too. With CE / FCC authentication and an 18-month warranty, rest easy knowing we stand behind our work.
Not only is the Anker Car Charger the most powerful adapter on the market, it's also among the smallest in size (beating out even most 10W / 15W options). Our goal was to build something light, unobtrusive, and compact that would get the job done with minimal distraction. For further convenience, take a look at our model featuring a built-in micro USB cable for Android.
- To ensure complete safety and best performance, we strongly recommend using your device’s original cable or a third-party certified cable (such as MFI).

Apple and Android ports: What's the difference?
USB-charged devices look for a USB pin signal before they accept a full-speed charge. Most devices use a standard USB pin signal; Apple devices and a few others, like the Galaxy tab, require specialized pin signals. Our Android and Apple ports are hard-wired to accommodate these two types of charging authentications. However, an Apple device can (usually) still charge from an Android port and vice versa, sometimes at a slower speed, but oddly, often also at full speed.
