    Me personally, I use the 2.1 Amp iPad charger, with a 6-foot power cable from a MacBook Pro power charger. Then I have my Drok USB Tester in there, to show my current draw while charging. Gives me roughly 12 feet of solid USB power. I travel with it all the time, it's great when you don't want to sit near an electrical outlet when charging your phone, teblet, etc.

    As an avid Android enthusiast who would never buy an Apple device if my life depended on it, Apple makes a solid charger. I also prefer the Apple charger because it's a quality product, works VERY well, and has interchangeable adapters you can buy to travel with around the world, with automatic 100v~240v voltage switching inside.

    So Tempers... Which chargers do you use, and why?

    I always use the Original Adapter and Cable that comes with the Device. It charges just right, and with the original chargers, your battery stays healthy longer and they don't loose thier charge that fast. Some new Smartphones even have turbo charging on thier original adapters.

    Some original adapters seem either too cheap (Chinese Android clones), or are just shaped oddly, making it a pain to use in some places (Samsung chargers). I also get an additional 6 feet of cable length, without using a USB extension (which could impede fast charging).

    I've been using the Samsung power bricks that came with my OG Tab 10.1 and my Tab S2. I use some thick flat cable for the black power brick and I use the default cable with my Tab S2's power brick.

    Most stock chargers nowadays support Qualcomm Quick Charge so if you've got a phone with a Qualcomm processor just recently, you really don't have a reason to buy a third-party power brick that supports Quick Charge unless the stock power brick is broken.

    I've never had a Nexus, but I'd trust they are pretty great. Google makes good stuff.

    the cables are a bit thicker, but you won't notice it when using it. they are pretty sturdy, and won't fold more than you want to.

    Anker's 2 port offering. Love the stuff and it seems to have a thicker cable, and it's easier to charge my phone, MH10 flashlight and tablet...

    I have the Samsung Wireless quick charger. It's so awesome because it charges just as fast as a regular charger. I also have the original S7 fast charger that charges slightly faster than my wireless one.

    i have a bunch around the house from all my old phones, a couple of samsung chargers and a xperia one, even a really old blackberry one which is pretty sturdy as far as micro usb cables go, but a bit on the short side
