PowerPort+ 1 with Quick Charge 3.0 : The most advanced USB charger in the world.



From ANKER, Leading USB Charging BrandFaster and safer charging with our advanced technology10 million+ happy users and counting

Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0



With Quick Charge 3.0, PowerPower 1+ charges compatible devices up to 80% in 35 minutes: that is 4X faster than a standard charger and 38% faster and more efficient than the previous version, Quick Charge 2.0. Quick Charge 3.0 is the only charging tech that is as cutting edge as your phone. 

Note: Apple devices do not support Qualcomm Quick Charge but will accept a standard 1A USB charge.With a Type-C–to–Type-C cable, Type-C devices, such as Nexus 5X and 6P, can support fast charge.With a Type-A–to–Type-C cable, only regular charging speed is possible.

Quick Charge Compatible Devices:



Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge / Edge Plus, Note 5 / Note 4 / EdgeGoogle Nexus 6Motorola Droid Turbo, Moto X 2014Sony Xperia Z4 / Z4 Tablet, Z3 / Z3 Compact / Z3 Tablet CompactLG G4, LG G Flex2, LG V10HTC One M9 / M8, HTC Desire Eye, HTC One remixXiaomi Mi3, Mi4, Mi Note, and moreAsus Transformer T100, Asus Zenfone 2ZTE Axon ProYota Phone 2Samsung Fast Charge Qi Wireless Charging Pad
 







Travel Ready 
Compact size and international voltage compatibility (AC 100-240 V) make it the ideal travel companion.

MultiProtect Safety System 
Surge protection, temperature control and more advanced safety features keep you and your devices safe.

World Famous Warranty

"The most advanced USB charger in the world"

Lol, all these things do is supply a constant voltage for a given current. The intelligent charging circuit is in the device being charged.

Still a good deal even with its marketing BS
I can confirm it works with my lg g4. recognises as a fast charger as opposed to just charging.
charges much faster than the original charger which is around 2 amps.
this charges at 5v at 2.4a. which theoritically shouldnt make much difference at all. but I concluded it modifies the charging circuits behaviour to modify the charging cycle.
either way it charges really fast. I'm happy with mine.

As its able to utilise the extra 0.4A that's a 20% increase in charge rate so it should be noticeably quicker. Raises the question why LG cheaped out with the power adapter they supplied

Apple are the ones that force expensive proprietary connectors onto their customers.

Practially every smartphone these days uses Micro USB, except apple of course....

Apple is just a single company, there are thousands of manufacturers making devices using Android OS. Practically, there are only 2 USB standards which are used by most.

It's actually in both. Quick Charge requires negotiation from both sides of the cable, it's not just a simple higher amp charger.
The charger needs to be able to step the voltage correctly with what the device needs, as you can't simply whack a high voltage or current into a Li-ion without having some sensible controlling circuit in there. These are currently too big for a phone, so it's in the charger which the phone negotiates with.

So yeah, it is just a charger, but there is actually a bit of decent tech present in Quick Charge devices. It's not all marketing. It's actually a good idea given how many crappy chargers are out there (and how many recalls we've had) that the regulations for being classed a s Quick Charge device is quite strict. You actually need independent UL certification to class a device as such: industries.ul.com/blo…2-0

Rubbish! Quick Charge is a proprietary charging method for compatible Qualcomm based chipsets. It's the same idea as rapid charging with electric cars where the system allows very rapid charging until the battery reaches 80% when it will reduce the ampage to avoid battery damage.
Balls finished.

The description is a little odd - it makes the point that a type-c mobile needs a type-c charger to get a rapid charge, and this isn't a type-c charger - so won't get a rapid charge.
Can anyone tell me if this will work with a Moto X Play? Seems much cheaper then the Turbo Charger on the Motorola site, but I don't know the difference between Quick Charge / Turbo Charge.
it should still work on any device as it should provide 5v at 2a anyway.
What does it mean when it says "38% faster and more efficient than the previous version". Should the word efficient even be in there? How many people actually know how efficient a phone charger is at taking 240v from the wall and charging a phone? How much is lost to heat and noise? If I take a made up figure of 80% for a QC 2.0 are these QC 3.0 really something like 87% efficient?

Yes, I've used it with my Moto X Play and it works well. The phone only supports QC 2.0, so the charger is technically more capable than you need, but there's no harm in having a future-proof charger.

All it means is you need a usb-c lead which isn't provided to charge you're phone. It will rapid charge said phone if it supports QC 2.0 / 3.0

It's not rubbish, the charging circuit is in the device being charged. The fact is this power supply supports a voltage and current which are required by the charger in the device being charged. It's that simple and it has to work that way as the charging profile has to match the batteries requirements in the device. These devices are nothing more than power supplies.

as nomnomnomnom said, the charger needs to do the voltage part, as the new standard uses a higher voltage than 5V
back when fast charging meant drawing 2A rather than 500mA, you were right, the tech was in the device.

A switch mode voltage PSU is not cheap

That's what I said. This device supplies a voltage up to a maximum current, the charging circuit in the device dictates which voltage and current are required at each stage of the charging cycle not this device. Also switch mode power supplies for the voltages and currents used here are common and produced in mass and are dirt cheap if bought from the manufacturer.

The quote was "The most advanced USB charger in the world". That is just pure marketing BS. I know exactly how this device works and it won't perform any different to any other power supply built with the same QC standard as the device being charged dictates the charge rate. The hardest part is agreeing an industry standard.

This isn't a technical forum, so I'll finish here with this quick summary.

Wrong. As I said before and the linked article describes the device dictates. The power supply delivers a voltage the device dictates.

Wrong


Yes you are! Most mobile phones don't do any voltage control, the battery within them takes care of voltage regulation, Quick Charge is built into the phone and that communicates with the charger to decide on the optimum charge rate throughout the charge cycle to the battery. In order to take advantage of Quick Charge you have to have a compatible charger not just any old high output one!

Now stop talking complete rubbish!

Go back and actually READ my posts and not what you think I said. I never once said any power supply could be used in its place. This all started when I said its marketing BS that this is the fastest charger in the world. Any QC3 charger will charge at the same rate as the rate of charge is dictated by the device which that article explains. You seem to have made an argument out of nothing and are trying to imply I have said something to the contrary to the facts, which I have not.
