Which tablet car charger is best for you? Guide for Travelers
Are you planning a car trip on a family holiday with children? Or maybe you are often on the road and use a tablet for work? Whether your tablet is your tool or your source of entertainment, it's important to keep it charged and ready to use at all times. In this guide, we'll go over a few factors to consider when choosing the best tablet charger.
GPS navigation, watching movies, working with files in the cloud... A tablet can be an extremely useful device while driving - a reliable power supply is absolutely crucial! A tablet car charger is a great gadget for all drivers and their passengers. Thanks to it, you can enjoy reliable power supply for your tablet while traveling. And it doesn't matter where you are.
Choosing the best tablet car charger starts with the specs
This is the first and most important step! Check your tablet's documentation or information on the manufacturer's website to find out what kind of car charger the manufacturer recommends for your model. There you will find information regarding the required minimum amperage and minimum power.
Car charger with USB C and USB ports up to 24W - Ugreen CD130
You only need a 30 watt (W) car charger to charge most tablets on the market. Of course, you can choose a charger with more capabilities. The higher the charging current, the faster your tablet will charge, but it also increases the likelihood of battery deterioration. Some tablets also have built-in limitations, so it's important to adjust your charger to your specifications. This is the only way to ensure optimal charging and avoid potential problems.
-> To find a tablet charger with the right power, use the filters. In the filtering section, look for the "Maximum Power (W)" parameter.
The second issue is the current requirements - its value is given in amperes (A). Make sure the car charger you choose has enough amperage to effectively charge your tablet.
-> In the Hurtel.com store, you can filter the chargers by amperage. In the filters section, look for the parameter "Maximum current (A)".
Choose a tablet car charger with the right output
Check which output ports are built into the model of the car charger you are interested in, and which ones are included in the model of your tablet. This is the only way to know if you have a cable compatible with both devices.

Car chargers most often have built-in USB type C or USB type A ports. Very rarely, but there are also models of chargers with a micro USB port. In the case of the output connectors built into tablets, the matter is a bit more complicated.

Today, the USB C connector has the following models:
