Video from Qualcomm shows you how much faster Quick Charge 2.0 fuels your battery
posted by Alan F. / Mar 25, 2015, 10:35 AM
As the video shows, the Nexus 6 that used the Quick Charge 2.0 was able to charge up to 50% in 40 minutes. At the same 40 minute mark, the 2 Amp charger was able to recharge the battery to 32%, and the 1 amp charger was 22% refueled. For Quick Charge 2.0 to work, you need to have a phone compatible with the technology, and a charger powerful enough to put out the required current.
The Quick Charge 2.0 technology is included in certain Snapdragon chipsets. Faster recharging of smartphones has become a selling point for some models. Recharge the Motorola DROID Turbo for 15 minutes and you'll have enough battery life to last 8 hours. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge both also offer quick recharging. It's a great feature for the severely smartphone addicted who see their life flash in front of their eyes whenever they have less than 10% battery life remaining.
Right now, there are 13 Android handsets that are compatible with Quick Charge 2.0. including the Motorola DROID Turbo, Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, HTC Desire EYE, Second-gen Motorola Moto X, Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet compact, Sony Xperia Z3 compact, Sony Xperia Z3, HTC One (M8), Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and the HTC One remix.

50% of 2140 is 1070...which is about 33% of the battery mentioned, which is about exactly what they said in the article was done in 40 minutes. So the math says that your setup is actually 50% slower. Not to be a jerk, just wanted you to understand the math of it

you are real jerk. that doesn't work like you think. battery is easier to charge up to abou 70-80% then its harder and harder to fully charge. my battery is li-polymer and it easier to charge and charger is powerful so it can! i'm saying what i see and not what you can calculate and it's not correct tho

I would never charge my phone with more than 5v/1A.

I personally use a standard two amp charger every night with my Nexus 6, and only the turbo charger when I need to get some battery quickly.

Qualcom quick charge IS BETTER than standard charger 2Amp charger. It detect/monitor the battery temperature and fullness, and sending the power depending on the situation. If the battery is too hot, perhaps it's being use to play 3D game while being charge, or for some other reason, it will charge will low amps/volt, as charging with high amp/volt while the battery is hot will make the battery deteriorate faster. This is what the standard charger don't have. And when the battery is almost full, the QC 2.0 charger will also charge the battery slower. So, recap, the quick charge 2.0 is a smart charger that were safer than standard two amp charger.

It is safe. If you put more amps on your device, it'll charge a bit faster (up to a point). Especially when you use/charge simultaneously. But it's not granted to work. Your phone will use ONLY the amps it needs. So if your phone uses 1.4 amps when charging, even if you use a charger that outputs 2A, only 1.4A will be used. Unlike voltage, the phone can regulate amperage, and thus, uses only what it needs.

Sorry I seem like I'm trolling... On my BLU Studio Energy it charges SUPER slow, like 10% per hour; but it only uses 1% per day on standby. Even under heavy heavy usage I have to charge it every three days.... I love super long battery life, I'd take that over fast charging any day.

Though not touted, GS5 charges pretty fast with the included charger (and has a removable battery). But that probably doesn't matter as the GS6 battery lasts a week with very heavy usage, charges from 0-100% in 90 seconds, and has an unlimited recharge life cycle. I also hear the battery adds 8gb of RAM and 1TB of flash memory to the phone.
