G-Fast Quick Charge Guide?

Once you've used G-Fast Quick Charging you will never go back to your original charger again. But what exactly is Quick Charge and what does it really mean for the average user?

We put together this guide to help you learn more about G-Fast Quick Charge, find out if your device supports Quick Charge, how to maximize the charging speeds, charging techniques, and more.

Let's start with the Quick Charge basics:

Here are the charging speeds of several different types of chargers:

Standard Phone Charger

Charges at 1A or 1000mAh (Used for older iPhone and Android Devices 

Tablet Charger

Most tablets charge at a 2.0A or 2000mAh Rate

1st Generation Quick Charge

The first generation of Quick Charge charges at 2.4A or 2400mAh as you can see this is twice as fast as a standard charger.

G-Fast Quick Charge

Our newest charging technology. Charges at 3.0A or 3000mAh.

Adaptive G-Fast Quick Charge

3000mAh is a lot of battery charging power to be moving through your smartphone. Not only that, but not every smartphone is G-Fast Quick Charge compatible.

That is where Adaptive Quick Charging technology can help. All of our G-Fast Quick Charge Chargers feature a special chip that will adjust the charging voltage to quickly and safely charge the device as fast as possible, even if it is not Quick Charge compatible. For Quick Charge phones when your battery is closer to 0 it will charge super-fast and slow down charging speeds as your device reaches 100%. 

This protects against overcharging, overheating, and promotes overall battery health.

 

Taking Advantage of G-Fast Quick Charge

G-Fast and other Quick Charge technologies are best used when your battery is close to dying. It will charge the fastest from 0%-50% after that the device charging speeds will get slower to safely and efficiently charge your device. This also protects your device from potential damage and will increase the lifespan of your battery. 

It is not unlikely that you can charge from 0-50% in as little as 30 minutes. Charging from 80 to 100% will not charge as fast but still way faster than a regular charger.
