QuestionQuickcharge 3.0 is this worth it? only a commercial lure? Pin

Hi all,

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.

As always... Thank you very much! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
