Reminder that QuickCharge 2.0 and 3.0 is out there for most phones, and definitely something you want to seek when remedying slower charging concerns. Or another option is to buy an external battery bank of at least 10,000mAh capacity, and keep in mind how it best fits in your pocket/purse/backpack. Note that the link for power banks is units that wouldn’t be for QC3 though! You’ll have to find your own QC3 banks. Ok fine.. here’s one with 4.5 Amazon stars that I pulled up quick 😉
Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 and even the “outdated” 2.0 type can really help alleviate your tech device’s charging woes. Beyond that, it may also be a failing battery, and for phones without a removal battery, that does mean getting a new device 😦 But bite the bullet, right?
You can simply google to see if your phone has this feature, but how do you tell if your charge does? Well, to make it simple for folks, look at the text imprinted on the charger itself and try to use one of the ones you own that has the highest amp rating in it. Try to shoot for something with a 2Amp or higher value imprinted on the charger’s body. A 3-5Amp charger+ is ideal. That way you’re either getting QC2 or 3 (IF you device supports it).
Update: QuickCharge 4 coming in first half of 2017 🙂
Have a great holiday season and New Year’s, everyone.
