Default [Q] Fastest Car charger.

Hi i am currently using the basic motorola charger and it feels like tis really slow. I know that the note 2 can handle 2amp chargers or more. Can anyone reccomend a fast car charger and if neccesary a fast charge cable to use in the car. I have a toyota which only charges while the car is on so the faster it charges the better. Thanks for your help

I use my nook charger in the car:

It's fast and almost flush with the lighter jack.

I have the anker 24w 2 port charger. Charges pretty good speed. 12 buck on amazon. It has smart port so it'll charge any smart phone including iPhone iPad etc..

I have a simple usb charger that I bought at Walgreens for 5 bucks. Charges pretty quick. I have a good quality usb cable as well.

If only "pretty quick" and "pretty good speed" were reliable metrics to go by.

I've yet to find a car charger that will get more than 1.1amps on the meter. Max is 1.8.

1.1amps is enough to charge the phone "pretty quick" normally, but not if it is loaded down. Once I get GPS, bluetooth audio and Torque Pro going at the same time, I find that 1.1amps will actually result in a slow drain. I use an inverter and a stock wall charger which keeps the phone charging even at full use. I've yet to find a aftermarket car charger that will do the job.
