I am probably part of the tin-foil hat brigade as after watching one talk I decided to always take my phone of out my pocket when I am driving, or in a moving vehicle, due to the boost in signal as the car crosses over cell boundaries.

Typically we are all exposed to between 3 and 6 mSv/a, unless you are a frequent flyer in which case you are probably dead by now. The US is at the top of the range, and most of the rest of the world at the bottom end. All we need to do is figure out if radiation damage is higher in the US than in the rest of the world - which I doubt - and then figure out how much extra mSv/a 5G will give us, and if it will put the rest of the world above US levels.
I don't like to mention the four thousand trillion neutrinos passing through our bodies each day, so I won't.
Ra-di-a-tion. Yes, indeed. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Half-baked goggle-box do-gooders telling everybody it's bad for you. Pernicious nonsense! Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year! They oughta have 'em, too.

I got a new pixel 3a phone and I love it. Simple, fast enough and make delightful pictures.
This said, that phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor that is compatible with Quickcharge 4.0.
Now I'm travelling a lot for work and I use a lot the GPS in the phone... And of course I need to charge it during the travel.
I've read plenty of articles around telling lot's of reasons why it's not good charging the phone in the car... but given I need to do it...
What would you recommend?
A) Simply go for a big amount of amperes, that will give the max power to your phone. And as the phone is the one who demands electricity it will receive only the needed.
B) Use a power bank, that way the non constant electricity coming from the car battery won't destroy the phone.
C) Get a charger that complies with the Qualcomm specs and get a Quickcharge 3.0 or 4.0 charger at least.
What would you recommend? If possible giving a technical reason for the recommendation.
They communicate with the battery and deliver both more volts and more amps; as many as possible and can seriously cut charge time.
But ... and it's a big but ... only if the equipment is Qualcomm compatible. If it isn't, it's a dumb fast charger. My Wookietab is; Herself's Samsung Galaxy S isn't. And I get it in the neck for that one!

The majority of the articles I recall about car charging being bad are pointing at the factory provided USB ports and the dollar-store specials.
Get yourself a decent cigarette-lighter powered USB fast-charger and you should not have any issues.
