I bought my son a Joysway USB Slot Car Track and for about 10 minutes the cars run well. But then they tend to tinker out. I have it plugged into my laptop that's also plugged in as well as using a phone USB charger.

Someone mentioned using a super USB charger or possibly converting it to a different power supply.

Any suggestions?

In fact, using anything that's not capable of 2A output will likely shorten the life of whatever you're using. Any of these should be suitable:
