    It takes 3 hours to charge my phone from 3% to like 80. My friend has a Nexus 5 and it takes him 2 hours to get 100

    What's the amperage of the charger. I believe the stock charger that comes with it is 1.2 amps. Obviously a 2.0 amp would make the phone charger quicker.

    If you have a custom kernel (I use Elementalx), you can enable "USB Fast charge" to, well, charge faster.

    I'm not an expert on how this works, it probably changes the amount of current going into the battery at once (higher than stock) . That said, I'm not responsible for damage to your battery. I've been using this for months with no issues.

    If custom kernel is not your thing, you can use Tasker. This requires root and the "secure settings plugin" . Looks like this :

    New profile: > state > power > power > (chose which power source you want)

    Now create your task :
    Plugin > Secure Settings > Configuration > Custom Rom Actions > Fast Charge (set on)

    This should enable fast charge when you plug in your phone.

    I used my nexus 7's charger for my nexus 5. It definitely speeded up the process or at least felt like it. lol

    I think it is, my nexus discharges faster than it charges (especially from a pc).

    Mine charges pretty fast to 100% in just around 2 hours. I got this phone used couple of days ago.
