USB car chargers used to only be good for charging smartphones and other small devices. This one is powerful enough to charge your USB-C laptop and another device.
The LinkOn 112W car charger features a USB-C port that conforms to Power Delivery 3.0 and is capable of outputting 90W of power, along with a USB-A port compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and can output 18W.
In total, this car charger -- which fits easily into the palm of your hand -- can output a total of 112.5W.

LinkOn 112W high-power USB-C car charger
My biggest concern initially was heat. Would this thing get hot? The last thing I want in a car is a smoldering blob of plastic and electronics.
The LinkOn 112W stays cool in use. I've had it hooked up for hours, pushing out the maximum wattage, and heat hasn't been a problem. In fact, the LinkOn 112W runs cooler than many other far less powerful car chargers that I've used.
No worries on that front.
I highly recommend the LinkOn 112W. It's a superb car charger that can take pretty much any device you can throw at it.
Brilliant bit of kit! And priced at $40, it's also affordable for those who want to keep their laptop and smartphone charged up while on the road.
Note: The latest 16-inch MacBook Pros can take 96W of power to charge, but this 90W charger will charge it, albeit a little bit slower.
