I'm looking for a couple of good quality car chargers for my M8...Does anyone have any recommendations? There is so much junk out there.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I have a Scosche dual USB car plug that is high quality and has 1 amp and 2.1 amp port. I think it's called like a reVIVE or something like that. Has plenty of power to run both phone and tablet at the same time no problem.

I ordered Avantek for my M8 a few weeks ago on Amazon and it's flawless. I would definitely recommend it! Perfectly safe, never has overheat issues as the $2 Monoprice charger did.

Do you happen to have a link for the one you purchased?

I have that too except I haven't used the charging ports yet.

I have an old car charger (micro USB plug to cigarette lighter plug) that works well with my M8. I'll post the name of it when I can [it's in the car ]. I got it at Best Buy for my old Vivid. Had it about 2 years so it's a keeper. I want to say it's a Rockfish but I'll post what it is when I can.

EDIT - It is a Rockfish

I bought the HTC Dual USB car charger off ebay, works flawlessly and charges the phone as quick as the wall charger, if not quicker. Thn=ink its a bit slower if you have two high end smart phones charging together though
