Choetech is known for their wide range of smartphone accessories. Here I have the new mini dual USB car charger in for review. Not all car chargers are the same and the Choetech mini car charger is one to stand out from the crowd.

Specs:
Auto Detected Charging Port: 5V/2.4A Max
Quick Charge & Auto Detected Charging Port: 5V 2.1A/ 9V 2A/ 12V 1.5A
Dimensions:1.1 x 2.5 x 1.5 inches
Weight:20g

The packaging was nice as most companies are going for the recyclable packaging, with the cardboard box and cover sleeve. In the box was the mini dual USB car charging device and they also included a flat style 2ft USB to micro USB cable which is always a bonus when it comes to mobile accessories like battery packs and chargers. My initial impression of the products was that it was very small in fact it is smaller than my old USB car charger which had a coiled micro USB cable build in.

As for design and hardware, it has a smooth glossy black plastic body (it comes it white as well). Even though you won’t be taking this in and out of the car, it isn’t much of a fingerprint magnet which is a good thing, as I really can’t stand fingerprints! The best thing about this product is its size, as it is smaller than most of the other car chargers on the market and is lightweight and portable. This means that you can easily fit it into your pocket, and or transfer it from one car to the other on the fly with no hassle.

One of the best features of the mini charger is having dual USB ports instead of the one, this can be handy when traveling. In addition to this, when charging my phone it has a dedicated port for quick charging as only my Nexus 6 supports it. But also when it comes to charging my dad’s, sisters or moms phone, I like the fact that it has this ‘Auto Detect’ feature this means that the car charger will automatically detect the type of charge (voltage/power) that goes into your device(s) which are plugged in. This is very important because it helps to prevent overheating and overcharging that could potentially damage your device.

The USB cable which comes in the box is a flat cable which means that it doesn’t get tangled easily, saying that it is shorter than a standard 3ft cable so this helps with it being tangle free. As there is nothing more annoying than tangled cables. When you are done using it you can easily stow it away safely as it takes up very little space. Overall, you can’t go wrong with this charger. Not only is it small so it is basically hidden, it also blends into central units in most cars. If you have a smartphone and you have trouble keeping it alive throughout the day, I would definitely recommend this product.

At the time of this post it is only $15.99 on Amazon. Product Link
