It can seem like the very apps and features that make your mobile devices so useful are just as often to blame when you have to interrupt your plans to charge up again. We like to think that power management shouldn’t be about limiting functionality – more than that – we know it shouldn’t be, and we have a solution.
Gone are the days of running to the nearest outlet before your battery completely drains. Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0 is a comprehensive suite of battery management technologies that let certain Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ based devices charge up to 75% faster than devices that use conventional charging methods, lessening that persistent battery anxiety so you can spend less time charging and more time doing.
Plenty of the latest devices support Quick Charge 2.0 including the new Moto X and Droid Turbo, both by Motorola, the Nexus 6 from Google, the GALAXY Note 4 and GALAXY Note Edge from Samsung, Sony’s Xperia Z3 (the Sony Z3 Tablet Compact as well), and the Xiaomi Mi 4.
Quick Charge 2.0 lives in both your device and its charger. To achieve full charging speeds make sure your device is paired with a Quick Charge 2.0 certified adapter. There are already a variety available for purchase. Motorola has the Turbo Charger, HTC offers the Rapid Charger 2.0 and both Powermod and Puregear sell Quick Charge 2.0 certified car and wall chargers. All of these are forward and backward compatible for use with devices that don’t support Quick Charge 2.0.
With Quick Charge 2.0 your phone can finally keep up with your life. You’ll spend less time charging, and less time worrying about where the nearest power outlet is. For a complete list of Quick Charge 2.0 compatible devices and accessories, available from a number of device manufacturers, visit our Quick Charge 2.0 product page.
