Uncharged in bad time a mobile phone is a reason for a nervous breakdown and following prolonged depression of more than one thousand people. Even if there is no urgent matter to solve on the phone, uncharged friend upsets anyway.
If there is something urgent, it is needless to say how bad it makes one feel. It is not that bad though, and there are many options how to bring your electronic friend to life again.
Those are battery adaptor, power bank, a “fast” adaptor with Quick Charge support, a quick charge smartphone and much more. The latter is to be discussed in the article.
The thing is that Qualcomm Company produces chips, which do with fast charging technology. The technology itself, which is widespread now, is called Quick Charge 2.0 – its support is provided by a separate micro scheme usage within either the system or the Snapdragon collective chip.
According to the developers, this technology makes the process of charging faster to 75 %.
Quick charge smartphone or a Smartphones combined with Quick Charge 2.0 are charged for several hours within the first few minutes, so there is no problem for users at all. Drop in a café or plug in any other place, wait for a few minutes, and your phone is ready to work for another few hours.
Motorola DROID Turbo, Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, HTC Desire EYE, HTC One Remix, HTC One (M8), Motorola Moto X (2014), Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Sony Xperia Z3 Сompact, Sony Xperia Z3, Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and some other devices are combined with this technology these days and yes, a charger should be relevant.
Qualcomm Company is working on Quick Charge 3.0 now. Charge 3.0 has a backward compatibility with previous standards plus there it is supported with USB Type-C.
The previous standards supported a certain diapason the following working voltage range: 5, 9, 12 and 20 V. Now, an option of any voltage range is worked upon, starting from, 3,6 V to 20 V at intervals 0,2 V.
Let’s have a look how to quick Charge Smartphone in 30 minutes
How Fast charging work?
Every smartphone or a tablet is optimized for a certain rate and voltage. It has its good and bad moments. It is good because a smartphone is a protection for itself. It is bad because it is going to be impossible to charge a regular phone releasing high currents.
Fast phone chargers are different from regular chargers and specially made for quick charge smartphone.
Such adaptors widen a “doorway” and provide with a faster device charging allowing the device to accept higher voltage and rate. For example, if older, devices supported 5 V and 1 A, new gadgets work with 9 V and 2 A.
If to plug Quick Charge to an old device, nothing bad will happen, the device will not burn down but is going to be charged with old tempos. So, there is a smartphone (or a tablet) needed and a charger with Quick Charge standard support.
Is fast charging harmful to a battery?
Many users think that the faster charging is, the sooner battery dies. Slow charging, on the contrary, makes it to where a battery works longer and no damage is done.
Nevertheless, it is a wrong opinion. Scientists in California conducted a research back in the year 2014 by which fast charging does not make any harm for a battery. As part of the study, the scientists found out that a phone charges equally at both, slow and fast charging.
With time goes by, the batteries of both groups worked same good as at the beginning of the research. Nature Materials edition published results of this research.
What are the options of fast chargers?
There are many of them, and there is no point to number all of them. Let us look through the best-executed chargers and power bank. The chargers listed below have one more advantage, which is AIPower technology.
It defines input characteristics of a mobile gadget automatically. Texas Instrument input chip is used for smart device charging via AIPower. It is done so charging of a device, which does not support Quick Charge were going effectively enough with optimal rate and voltage supported by a smartphone or a tablet.
Powerbank is perfect when it comes to choosing what is best for fast charging. It supports both, Qualcomm Quick Charge, and AIPower.
Here are best fast charging devices
1) Aukey PB-T1
Device capacity is 10400 mA·h, which is enough for a few times to charge a modern smartphone. There is one USB port only with fast charging technology support from Qualcomm. If a device does not support this charging – it is not a problem.
It can be charged using Aukey PB-T1 in the ordinary course but with a maximum effectiveness (maximum output current is 2,1 A in this case).
The body frame of the device is made of anodized aluminum, so it is not that easy to damage an outside battery.
- Model: PB-T1
- Technologies: Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0
- Capacity: 10400mAh
- Number of USB Ports: 1
- Input current: DC 5V/2.1A, 9V/1.8A
- Output current: DC 5V/2.1A, 9V/1.8A, 12V/1.35A
- Size: 137mm x 105mm x 37mm
- Weight: 364.7 g
2) Aukey PA-T1
Aukey PA-T1 is a charging device with 5 USB ports, which allows charging five mobile devices at once. One of the ports supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0. Aukey PA-T1 protects a device from voltage swings, shorts, and other potential problems.
3) Aukey PA-T2
If there is no need to charge five devices at once, there is a simpler option called Aukey PA-T2 with 3 USB ports, one of which is smart. Also, there is an option with one USB port only and Quick Charge support.
Aukey CC-T1 with two ports one of which is smart will work for an automobilist.
TechMatte is another producer of power banks with a function of Quick Charge. A basic model capacity is 5600 mAh plus there are two ports, which allow providing two devices at once with charging.
TechMatte CHOE allows charging a total plane. The capacity here is 15600 mAh, two ports. A tablet, a mobile phone, a smartphone – everything is to be charged.
Compatibility: List of Devices supports quick charge 2.0
It bears reminding that the following devices are compatible with Quick Charge 2.0 now:
- Asus: Transformer T100, Zenfone 2
- Droid Turbo by Motorola
- Eben 8848
- Fujitsu: Arrows NX, F-02G, F-03G, F-05F
- Google Nexus 6
- HTC: Butterfly 2, One (M8), One (M9)
- Kyocera Urbano L03
- LeTV: One Max, One Pro

If your cell phone is none of the above, no worries. There are so many quick charge smartphone available in the market or it can also be charged with a faster charger. Nothing will burn out or explode.
It is just a time of charging with no Quick Charge support with the help of faster charger is going to be as usual just like charging the phone with an adapter of its own.
