Recommendation for super fast LG G3 Car Charger????

    I had a Verizon Charger that came with my Droidx which I now use on my LG G3 and that thing rocks as far as charging. The only problem is the connector is going on it, so I need a new charger. I figured buying a new one that matched up wouldn't be a problem. I tried Arcadia and Dodocool which have had rave reviews on Amazon and they don't match up. I even got high quality Trent charging cables in case it was related to the cable itself. In both cases no matter what I tried, it still takes twice as long to charge as my old Verizon Charger. Anyone have any recommendations for a slam dunk charger for the LG G3 before I run out of money trying other chargers???!!! :)

    I got a Scosche and I am happy with it. It will charge while using the GPS satnav (that is my criteria for car chargers; that it actually charge and not just slow down the discharge rate).

    That said, there are a lot more choices out there for fast car chargers than there was a couple years ago, so you may be able to do better. I liked the Scosche for it's low profile (doesn't stick out a mile from the cig lighter port) but there seem to be several that are similar now. If I needed a new one, I think I would try this one below:

    The previous reply may have led me to the answer. I was looking at the reviews for the Aukey charger on Amazon and searched on LG G3. One person mentioned that the LG G3 has a known problem where it needs a special charging cable (with I believe) the fast charging wire is hardwired on. I did some searching and found this one which did the trick:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RL68RNS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    PortaPow Specialised 3.3ft 20AWG Charge Only Micro USB Cable for Blackberry, OnePlus One, HTC One, Google Nexus, Asus Transformer, Dell Venue, Other F

    Now with an Arcadia charger I am getting about 1 percentage point per minute, which pretty much matches the old Verizon charger. I am guessing the old Verizon charger hardwires this as well and has a thicker cable providing less loss (just like this one). I am going to see if my other charger that I bought is any better but for now I think I am good!

    P.S. The LG G3 does not support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 which I think would have helped with other cables that may tout fast charging and utilizes other internal wires. Unfortunately this cable was needed to "fake it out". From my understanding the LG G4 does support the standard however.

    I use the cheap ones from walgreens that have dual charge (2.1 and 1.0). They have replaced it like 4 times now. 1 almost burned up (started smelling like burning plastic; when I took it out it was very hot). Guess you get what you pay for, but when they work it charges fine. If it stops working, I have just gone in to walgreens and say "can I get a replacement, it stopped working"; I get a new one, no questions asked. Originally got the cheap one because they had the color to match wife's car, was dual port and had 2.1 port. I also use the cheap best buy branded cable that was on clearance to go with it.
