9 ways to Charge Your Phone Faster
« on: November 12, 2018, 04:41:41 AM »


How to charge your phone faster

Whether or not your phone supports fast charging, you can boost how fast your phone powers up.

1. Use the wall plug

Got a USB cable? Forget charging from a laptop. Stick your cable into the AC plug that came with your phone and plug that into the wall. Standard AC plugs deliver 1 amp of current, twice whatís possible via the USB 2.0 socket found on many computers. Third-party AC plugs may support higher amperage up to 2.4, although youíll be limited by the amperages of your phone and your USB cable.


2. Use a faster-charging wireless charging pad

Samsung Wireless Charging Pad

Popular phones, including the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8, support wireless charging. Wireless charging is slower than wired charging, but if you want to go wireless, make sure the charging pad supports the Qi 1.2 standard (up to 15 watts, though today, the Samsung Galaxy S8 can charge at 9 watts and the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X can charge at 7.5 watts).

Our picks: The Samsung Wireless Charging Pad ($39.99 on Samsung.com, check price on Amazon) supports fast Qi 1.2 charging and works with all Qi-compatible devices, including iPhones.

3. Use a higher amp car charger


Just like you'll want a higher amperage wall charger, you'll want a car charger with Quick Charge and/or the ability to deliver more than 1 amp. You'll find car chargers that support Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0 as well as regular chargers that deliver up to 2.4 amps


4. Use a quick charge portable battery charger


Like wall and car chargers, you can pick up a portable charger with Quick Charge and/or the ability to deliver a faster ócharge wired or wireless. Look for the same standards: Quick Charge 3.0 and Qi 1.2



5. Upgrade to USB 3.0


The USB 3.0 standard supports up to 1.5 amps of current when charging without data transmission. Using a USB 3.0 cable in a USB 3.0 port charges your phone faster, assuming your phone supports 1.5 amps or more.

If you charge your phone from a USB 3.0 port on your computer, turn on Airplane Mode to ensure your phone wonít try to sync or interact with the computer. Otherwise, the allowable current is capped at 0.9 amps. Check online to find out if your computer model has USB 3.0 ports.


6. Use your iPad charger for your iPhone 6 or newer iPhone

The standard iPhone 6 1-amp charger can take the phone from zero to full in around three hours, and the 2.1-amp iPad charger can halve that, says Silverman. Or pick up an Apple-certified third-party wall charger.

7. Turn off your phone while itís charging

Without Pokemon Go or email sucking up processing power, more juice goes where itís needed sooner.

8. Lock the screen   

If you canít live with a turned-off phone, let your screen go black to get more power to the battery. 

9. Leave low power mode on

When you hit a certain battery level, this handy setting for iOS and Android devices automatically dials back screen resolution, animations, background app refreshing and other battery drainers. Itís an impressive extension of battery life, and Silverman says this feature doesnít affect how fast your phone charges.
