    Default Are there any chargers out there that support the high speed charging on the GN3

    I usually use wireless charging, but for when I travel, I would like to have something that charges at the maximum possible speed. All of the chargers I have tried seems to work at about the same speed, which seems to be about the same speed as the GN2 did.

    Does anyone know of a charger that works faster?

    Thanks.

    I have a 2 amp wall charger and a 2 amp for the cat as well and they charge as fast or faster than the stock.

    I had an old Samsung charger from my old Samsung 7" Tablet (Yup still have it). That pushed about 1.8A to my phone which I believe is about the same at the one that came with the N3

    For the car, I bought one from Verizon, and I used a 3.0 cable plugged into the USB port and it also puts out 1.8A

    My GN3 charges at about the same speed as my GN2 used to.

    I was hoping that I could find one that charges a lot faster.

    The higher the amps on the charger, the faster they usually charge.

    After reading some reviews, I decided to order this charger Amazon.com: PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A Car charger Designed for Apple and Android Devices - White: Cell Phones & Accessories. Apparently most car chargers default to USB charging (as if it's connected to a computer) versus AC charging, unless you take the charger apart and modify some pins. This charger defaults to AC charging. Looks pretty bulky though

    Not possible, assuming that your note 2 was charging correctly, it was probably charging around 1.5-1.8a. The Note 3 max supports 2a,so at most you would see a slight increase.

    Using a faster charger probably won't make a difference as the system won't support it.

    Just to help clarify things a bit guys. The Note 3 DOES NOT SUPPORT FASTER CHARGING JUST BECAUSE IT'S USB 3.0. Sorry about the caps, but it seems to get a lot of people confused.

    Yes, USB 3.0 allows for faster charging. No, it doesn't mean that the Note 3 charges faster because of it. Why? The supplied charger has an output rating of 2 Amps, which is what the Note 3 will take and what will actually dictate how fast it charges, so using any 2A charger will charge your phone at the same speed. Then why the whole USB 3 hullaballoo? That has to do with the port in your computer, NOT the phone. USB 2.0 ports can output a 500mA max, but this has increased to 900mA in USB 3 (powered USB is higher, but that's another story), so the faster charging actually depends on the computer port you're connecting your phone to. Even the cable won't matter, as you can use the USB 3 or the USB 2 cable on the supplied charger (2A) and it will charge your phone just as fast.

    No need to shout, I can hear you.

    I didn't think the Note supported faster charging because of USB 3.0. I was hoping that it supported faster charging because of the fast charge mode of the Snapdragon 800.
