Seeking power auto charger adaptor

For years, I've been happy with an Anker auto charger (cigarette lighter adaptor) to charge a pair of smartphones the family uses while on car trips.

But at the end of this month, I will be going on a 1,400 mile round-trip and I will not be taking a laptop for the overnight stay. I am looking seriously at using an iPad Mini as my internet gateway instead. This presents a challenge, as the Anker lacks enough power to charge the iPad.

If I buy a new auto charger, what do I look for that will have enough ports, and juice, to charge two smartphones and an iPad? What specs should I look for? I'd prefer it be either Anker or RavPower, but I'm open to other suggestions.

Thanks in advance.
