Car charger ideas?
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:37:19 pm »
I don't know about anyone else here but the enormously common car USB chargers you can buy almost anywhere can't keep pace with the demands of my Gemini.

Since there is no OEM car charger, I was wondering if anyone here has already solved this problem. Ideally, there would be something out there that would support Pump Express, the fast charging standard put forward by MediaTek, the CPU vendor for Planet. But that seems unlikely due to the overwhelming dominance of Qualcomm and Apple of the smartphone CPU business.

My searching for Pump Express car chargers turned up basically nothing.

This should maybe work: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/7in1-Dual-U...2828890836.html ("Compatible protocols: QC3.0/QC2.0/Huawei FCP/MTK PE+/MTK PE/APPL...")
OpenPandora, Jolla C, BQ M10 fHD (ubports), MacBook Pro Retina (mid-2012), Zaurus SL-5500, OpenMoko Freerunner, Geeksphone Keon (ffOS 2.x), a few Raspberries, too many game consoles and Android devices,...

... and soon: Dragonbox Pyra, Librem 5

A coworker of mine gave up on DC car chargers a while ago, he just uses an inverter and plugs in his actual AC charger to the inverter.  That would be one guaranteed way to get pump express charging in the car, I suppose
