Help! Need local stores that sell USB-C car charger!

I got my nexus 5x in the mail today and I'm leaving early tomorrow morning on a road trip so I don't have time to order a USB-C car charger (I didn't know the big end of the cord would be different too!) Anyone know what store in a big city I might be able to find this in?

You don't have to get a USB-C car charger.If you have an existing car charger with a USB socket, you just need a USB-A male to USB-C male cable.


Hard to say for sure who would carry, the usual suspects include:
MicroCenter
Fry's
JR
BestBuy (maybe)
Apple Store (maybe)
Cell carrier stores
Cellphone kiosks in the mall.


Don't know where you are / what stores exist in your state. Near me, Mirco Center is the safest bet for a USB-C cable.

Thanks, didn't know if I could just get a cable with regular USB-A on one end and USB-c on the other. I was shocked that the cord for the wall charger that came with the phone didn't have a regular USB-A on the charger end. I'll be in Dallas first then Houston tomorrow so should be plenty of store selection

Chargers with a USB-C port will generally charge the phone faster than what will happen with a A to C adapter. For a car though it won't matter.

Yeah, it is rather annoying that they give you a c-c wire for the nexus line now. I was able to find a couple of tiny usbA to usbC adapters that I just use with my standard chargers.

If you are really in a bind you could rip apart a cable and wire up one yourself, but I think you should find the adapter you need easy enough from Target or Best Buy.
