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

This battery pack will charge your iPhone 6 from 0 to 100% in a matter of minutes
With the likes of Samsung, Sony, and LG making an appearance at expos such as CES 2015, it is easy to forget that the event isn't only about the big boys. Indeed, the floors of CES 2015 at Las Vegas are littered with comparatively tiny companies, all pitching their wears to passersby – the main difference is that they do so from less lavish booths that occupy the corners of the halls, not the center. iPhone accessories maker ibattz is a good example of one such team that has something truly interesting that solves a real problem: iPhones' batteries.

According to our tests, the 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.

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.

And then watch as your new iPhone explodes before your very eyes :/

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. :)

Since when is the iPhone an Android flagship?

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.

I bet. Fast charges usually shorten the life span of the battery. And since it's not removable.........

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.

Can this work on other phones like lumias and galaxy phones?

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/products/snapdragon/quick-charge

There's a good chance of won't even work with the iPhone - at least not without destroying your battery.

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.

Check out Zero Lemon's website. They have up to 10,000MaH batteries for phones.

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

That's with the normal charger. With this case its actually claimed to be only 15.

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.

Sounds like a ticking time bomb to me.

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.

BTW isn't this just a charge time for the battery pack ? Like for 15 minutes of charging your ASAP battery pack (at 20V and 2A) you will get a full iPhone 6 recharge ?

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.

If it's not allowed by Apple the battery IC will not allow more current to pass. But I think they wouldn't anounce this at CES if it doesn't work.
