This battery pack will charge your iPhone 6 from 0 to 100% in a matter of minutes

iPhone 6 needs 147 minutes to fully charge its otherwise smallish, 1810 mAh battery. That's nearly two hours and a half. Thankfully, the folks at ibattz have a real solution with their ASAP Charger portable battery packs, which offer 2 amps of current. Whatever the tech, the important bit is this: ibattz promises that either of the two models of the ASAP Charger (a 5,600 mAh and 11,200 mAh one) will restore your iPhone 6's battery to 100% in only 15 minutes. Yep, you calculated that right – that means 10 times faster than your included charger.According to our tests, the
Unfortunately, ibattz isn't yet ready to share pricing and availability information just yet, but unless they go for something crazy, it's probably a good idea for you to keep the ASAP Charger in mind if portable power is on your mind.

Nope it wont. 2A is the limit to how much current your battery can accept. Quick charge for Android flagships will transmit currents ranging from 1.8A ~ 2A. :)

Quicker the better usually, but is that safe? That much transfer if energy to a devices battery probably won't be good for it. It will for sure cause battery issues quicker than normal.

Yeah I question this as well, last I checked, charging takes quite a bit longer then that normally, and charging it this fast? Sure third party 'can' do it, but yeah, third party things have also been the reasons things have gone bad when you hear about batteries exploding and such...Am highly skeptical, not saying it doesn't work, just saying hmmmm.

Depends on the chipset. The Moto Turbo charger will charge any phone with the proper Snapdragon chipset up to 80% in 15 minutes or less. The list of phones that are capable is here: https://www.qualcomm.com/produ

Sounds great but can we just make a battery that lasts a few days with actual use? I don't care if it takes a few hours to charge.

'In a matter of minutes'. 147 of them. I was expecting less than 10.

Since many of these companies are backed by the manufacturers, I suspect that rather than just offer removable batteries, the objective is to kill the battery prematurely and sucker the customer into paying upwards of $200 for a refurbished handset. **NEVER FLASH CHARGE A LI/PO BATTERY** John B.

A good emergency charger. I would only use this that one time i forgot to plug in my phone or have ran out in the middle of nowhere. There's no way it would be a good idea to use this all the time. It would definitely kill the battery. My one plus comes with a 2amp charger and I already think battery life has reduced. Batteries love to be charged nice and slow. My digital multi battery smart charger tells me to only use the 2amp setting only rarely and the .5 amp for everyday charging.

We need to take attention for if this thing is MFi or not, if Apple is willing to allow so fast charging and if they tested that it's safe. But there have deffinitelly been some changes to iPhone 6 battery chemistry so it can charge faster than a 5S (5,92 Wh) even on the same 5W charger.

Im sure theres a reason that Apple never has announced that ip6 supports fast charging. Force charging a device, that doesnt support fast charging and the battery capacity would be reduced in short time. But sure, there will be apple fans, that gonna try it out without thinking.
