What is Fast Charging & How Does it Work?
Fast charging is a NEW popular feature for mobile devices. It allows them to recharge faster than they normally would.
Fast charging works by increasing the voltage and/or current (amps) into your device. This increases the total wattage (volts * amps = watts) beyond what a regular USB charger can do.
Newer phones can recharge from 0 – 50% in about 30 minutes.
First, you must have a device that supports fast charging in order to take advantage of the boost.
(If you plug a quick charger into a device that does not support fast charging, the internal regulator will still prevent it from overloading the battery, but it won’t charge any faster. )
Second, you will need to use the fast charging block with a fast charging cable to get the full effects.
(Each mobile device has an internal regulator that will not allow more power than the device battery can handle, preventing damage.)
How exactly does fast charging work?
When fast charging your device, all you’re doing is opening the door a little wider to let more power in. Devices capable of fast charging allow more electricity than your typical chargers, without damaging the battery.
