So, what is fast charging?

From smartphones to laptops and cables to chargers, manufacturers are talking about “Fast
Charging”, but what does it really mean? Fast Charging is a term frequently used to market
chargers and devices capable of charging faster than the current charging standard (5 Watts).
Though there are multiple technologies that enable these fast charging speeds, there is no
industry-standard language around them. In addition to this lack of conformity, you should be
aware that though many manufacturers claim their product delivers fast charging speeds, it may
only provide the standard 5W.

We have put together this guide to help you understand fast charging and find the fast charging
technology that is right for you.

To learn more about the two most common forms of fast charging, visit

Qualcomm® Quick Charge
and USB Power Delivery (USB PD).

How Fast Charging Works

Amperage x Voltage = Watts

The basic components of charging are amperage, voltage, and watts. Amperage (or current) is the
amount of electricity flowing from the battery to your phone or other connected device. Voltage is
the speed or strength of the current. Watts are amperage multiplied by voltage. A common comparison
used is a watering hose. Amperage (or current) is the hose width, voltage is the water pressure, and
watts is how much water is coming from the hose.

So, how does Fast

turn up

the speed?

Charging happens in two phases. In the first phase, a higher voltage increases the charging rate.
Fast charging chargers leverage this phase to increase power flow. Once the battery has received
most of its charge, the charger will decrease voltage to preventing overheating or overcharging,
ensuring your smartphone and charger are both safe.

Exact speeds vary by device safety requirements.


How do you charge faster?

Before you embark on a high-speed charging journey, you’ll need the
right equipment. Your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other device will all need to use the same fast
charging standard. In some cases, even your cable will need to be compatible with the fast charging
standard used in your device and charger.

Once you have a charger and cable with the fast charging standard
compatible with your phone, laptop, or other device, take note of the maximum charging speed for
both. For example, if you are using a 27W charger with a smartphone that has a maximum charging
speed of 18W, the phone will charge at 18W.

Types of Fast Charging Standards

The original and most popular types of fast charging standards are
USB Power Delivery (or USB-PD) and Qualcomm Quick Charge. In addition to these, you may be familiar
with TurboPower, Adaptive Fast Charging, or SuperCharge. Many of these are based on Qualcomm Quick
Charge and have been rebranded for marketing purposes. Similarly, Apple uses USB-PD standard in
their devices, so your iPhone will be compatible with all USB Power Delivery chargers and cables.

Is fast charging safe?

Because these technologies allow your smartphone to charge faster
than standard charging speeds, your phone and charger may become warm while charging. To ensure
you’re always charging safely, use high quality chargers and cables that have all relevant
certifications. When using fully certified accessories, a fast charge is as safe as standard


closeIs fast charging
bad, or does it damage batteries?

To ensure safety and optimal speeds, always check that your fast charging accessories are
certified to be compatible with your smartphone. This is most likely going to be Quick
Charge or USB Power Delivery. Certified accessories ensure the charger or cable meets
performance and safety standards. With a charger or cable that’s not certified, there’s an
increased risk of shorting or overheating, which can damage both your device and charger.

Your charger may get warm while powering devices, but if it’s produced by a reputable
manufacturer and certified compatible, there’s nothing to worry about. These certifications
mean a series of safety measures have been taken. A controller chip regulates the flow of
electricity to your battery, ensuring there aren’t any dangerous spikes in the current while
temperature and voltage controls keep your charger running within safe parameters.

Before purchasing or using a fast charging accessory with your device, you should first
verify that the product you are using is:

  1. Manufactured by a trusted brand
  2. Qualcomm Quick Charge or USB Power Delivery certified
  3. Includes technical specifications and warranty details that protect your device from
    damage caused by the accessory

closeWhy is fast
charging not working?

There are a few reasons why fast charging may not be working on your device. Below are a list
of common causes and suggested trouble shooting:

  1. Your device might not support fast charging.

    View our list of devices that support fast charging below to check.

  2. Your phone may not recognize the accessory is connected.

    Try unplugging and re-plugging in the fast charger from the outlet and device.

  3. Your circuit breaker may have been tripped and is not working.

    Try plugging something else into the outlet or plugging your fast charger and device
    into another outlet. If nothing is working in the outlet, try resetting its circuit

  4. For Samsung devices: you may need to enable fast charging and or turn off your screen.

    See our FAQ on how to enable fast charging on Samsung phones for more details.

  5. Your device is having a software issue.

    First, make sure your software is up-to-date. If your software is up-to-date, try
    restarting your device. As a last resort, you can also choose to factory reset your

  6. Your device is having a hardware or battery malfunction.

    If it is an older device, this might be the case. Try using the fast charger on a
    different device. If your fast charger works, the problem is with the first device.

  7. Your fast charger could be faulty or broken.

    Try using the fast charging accessory on a different device. If it still does not
    work, the problem is likely with the fast charger.

If following steps 1 – 7 does not solve the issue, contact the fast charger accessory
manufacturer for additional assistance.

closeWhich iPhone and
Android devices support fast charging?

Fast charging is available on:

  • iPhone 8 and later
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 and later
  • Pixel 2 and later
  • iPad Pro (1st Generation) 12.9inch and later

The number of devices enabled with fast charging technology is growing every day, check your
device’s manufacturer for the most up-to-date information.

closeHow do I turn on
fast charging?

Some devices need to have fast charging enabled to work. If fast charging needs to be enabled
on your device, you can refer to device manufacturer. For Samsung devices, follow the steps

Go to Settings > Device > Maintenance > Battery > Advanced
Settings and toggle on fast cable charging.

Note: your screen must be turned off for fast charging to begin once enabled on your phone.

closeWhat is adaptive
fast charging?

The original and most popular types of fast charging standards are USB Power Delivery and
Qualcomm Quick Charge, but you may have heard about Adaptive Fast Charging, TurboPower, and
SuperCharge. Most of these are based on Quick Charge or USB Power Delivery and have been
rebranded for marketing purposes.

For example, Adaptive Fast Charging (Samsung) is using Quick Charge
standards, while TurboPower (Motorola) and SuperCharge (Huawei/Honor) are based on
USB PD charging

closeHow do I identify a
fast charger?

To ensure a charger will fast charge your device, you can check with the manufacturer for
compatibility. As a general rule, a charger needs to be at least 18W from a single port to
deliver fast charging. You can also check for the USB Power Delivery and Quick Charge logos
on packaging.

closeHow fast do phones

Many devices display ‘Charging rapidly’ or ‘Fast charging’ instead of simply ‘charging’ on
the lock screen.

For other devices, please contact your manufacturer.
