Quick charge for Android
While chargers for Android is available with universal connector, it does not mean that they are all the same. It is not necessary to attach the charger cable to your PC, if you want to speed up charging your gadget, a USB 2.0 port provides a current of about 2.5 watts, and USB 3 – about 4.5 watts. However, the power from the wall outlet will give even more, so this method is preferred in cases where the need for accelerated charging.
Most modern phones Android support fast charging, which allows up to 15 W output and significantly reduces the time for a complete cycle. List of Fast-models are on sites like Qualcomm (Remember: you do not need a Qualcomm processor, but Qualcomm supply system is needed).
One can not overlook the fact that support for fast charging does not guarantee that the battery charger, which bought the phone to charge it quickly. Perhaps cable for fast charging you have to buy separately. For example, LG G4 supports fast charging, but “native” quick charger does not charge.
Don’t use USB port of a laptop
You can connect smartphones and tablets to the computer via the USB cable, and they will be charged, but the process will go much slower than when you directly connect them to a power outlet. For example, iPhone 6 is sold with a charger, which gives a current of approximately 1 A. If you use the charger for the iPhone 6 port USB 3.0, you get about 0.9 A. Charging of the older ports USB 2.0, you get only 0, 5 A. Newer Android phones and other electronic devices are able to take more energy than allowing the usual USB port on your computer. Examine the technical specifications of a tablet or phone to know its capacity.

Use power-saving mode
Each phone has a feature economical battery consumption mode. This may be a function of sink or branded chip vendor-specific, as an option Doze at Motorola. , Turn this mode to save battery power while charging.
Be sure not to connect unnecessary at this time services, such as GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or the NFC, as they consume battery power. Close all applications that are not carried out any autosave or updating applications via the Google Play Store.
Put phone on Flight Mode for Faster Charging
Another effective way to get your phone recharged faster – switching to airplane mode before connecting the charger. It allows you to disable the handset from all over cellular communications, radio, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, which are slowly and quietly consume battery power, even when you do not use these services.
Whether Android, Windows, iOS, you can always turn on flight mode by clicking on the icon in the Settings app on your phone screen. Select the mode “flight/plane” and confirm it. At the top of the screen will display a small image of the aircraft, indicating that the mode is activated.
Switch Off your phone for Faster charging in your iPhone / Android
A phone that is switched off completely, charging faster than the included flight mode. While it is disabled, you will miss some notice, but it is a sacrifice that is necessary to bring order to the phone has been fully charged and served to you when you’re away from home.
