    So I've ordered the 6P and it's scheduled to ship in November. In the meantime I have many many USB-Micro chargers and cables.
    If I order a simple USB-A to USB-C cable can I use this with my existing chargers as well as use one to charge the 6P while in my car (which has a USB charging port)? I realize I will likely not get the high speed charging feature, but will it charge at a relatively normal rate?

    I was planning on doing the same thing. I don't see why it wouldn't work. I wonder if using any USB3 cable will work with fast charging.

    Looks like there's already a USB-C to USB-A cable in the box.

    What's in the box:

    Nexus 6P
    USB Type-C 15W (5V/3A) charger
    USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable
    USB Type-C to USB Standard-A plug cable

    There is already a cable, but for most of us one is not enough. I have micro USB cables everywhere. One by my bed, one at work, one around the living room, one in my laptop bag, etc.

    I ordered a couple USB-C cables from Amazon. And yes, they will work with existing chargers.

    do we need the fast charger block for the fast charging? or will a 40W usb block allow for that? Also I heard there was a difference btwn the USB type C ports on the 5X and 6P? can anyone clarify? thanks!

    you need a charger that is branded as a quickcharge charger. There is one in the box. a regular charger, even at high wattage, will not support the actual quickcharge technology.

    And no, the ports on the 2 phones are the same.

    I'm hoping I wont need all these charging cables! With the hype of great battery life the only charger I should need is the one next to my bed to charge the phone over night.

    thats good to hear.. i was reading comments in some articles where they said the 6P featured a USB3.1 while the 5X only had USB2.0

    So this is something I'm unclear on and not fully understanding, I have a bunch of quick charge 2.0 chargers with USB-A plugs on them. Will a USB-A to USB-C cable (like what will be included) be enough to make the phone charge rapidly using those chargers.

    Quick Charge never required a USB-C connector before, I don't know why it would now. We need to distinguish in these conversations though between Quick Charge, which is a proprietary Qualcomm technology used to enable faster charging through any USB connector as long as the transformer and device support it, and the faster charging that's possible because USB-C carries higher power loads as standard than older USB specifications.

    So quick charge should work then because of the SD 810 supporting it I assume.

    No I don't this this will work. I've been researching this for a couple of days now and decided to just contact Google to get the answer from them. Here was Google's response, "Both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P support usb - type c quick charging. They do not support Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 or other quick charge devices."

    So simply using a QuickCharge 2.0 charger with a usb-c cable will not provide a quick charge. I've been looking on the web and the only usb-c charger I've found is the one Google is selling in their store for $25. If anyone finds some cheaper than that let me know please.

    Can you charge the Nexus 6p with the USB type A cable to type c on a portable battery charger?

    Yes, that should work. It just won't quick charge that way. And for quick charge 2.0 chargers, from what I understand, will charge the phone just fine (with appropriate USB A to USB C cable) but won't quick charge the phone. Need a 5V/3A charger with USB C to USB C cable.

    So I read a post over at droid life and they say that none of the Qualcomm 2.0 quick chargers will work with the nexus 6p for the fast charging rate. Only the one that is included in the box.. Other 3rd party chargers will work but will charge at the normal "slower" rate..... So this makes all car chargers and backup chargers pretty much useless for quick charging right?What are your opinions on this and is this a huge deal breaker for you when buying deciding over this phone?

    Disappointing. I was saving all of my Quick Charge 2.0 chargers (wall and car) that I was using with my Note 4. Can you even buy compatible 6P fast chargers from anyone now?

    As of now, not that I know of.. So the only quick charging we will get out of this phone are just when you have the stock wall charger that came in the box.. This is really frustrating......

    Qualcomm quick charge is so overrated to begin with. I really can't stand how it's only effective from like 0% to 50% then it slows down to the same pace as any ole basic charger. My charging habits categorize me as a 'topper'. I like plugging it in the morning when I wake up to top it off before I'm off to work. If I'm around 50-60%, a QC charger/compatible phone won't get to 100% within an hour. QC 2.0 is only good for those that always find themselves at low levels and they want a quick jolt to get them somewhere they can charge it longer. Not for 100% toppers like me.

    I'd rather have a fast charging method that has a faster sustained charge from 0 to 100. I hope that the 5p's system has this.

    There is no Quick Charging, which is a proprietary thing from Qualcomm. However, there is fast charging, which is different. USB Type C is the new standard allows for higher transfer speeds and power outputs, which thus allows for fast charging, though you need a 5V/3A (15W) charger to allow it to do that. Currently, Google's official charger is the only one that outputs like that. In time, other manufacturers will make chargers that support that power output as USB Type C continues to become mainstream.

    So it still charges much faster than before, just not in the previous proprietary QC way.

    Deal breaker, no. Means I get a fast charge at home and a slower one in the car. It is what it is until USB-C becomes more prevalent.

    Wrong... qc 2.0 fast charges till 90 percent.

    Calm down, they are coming. Not Huawei's fault that QC only works with micro USB at the moment. Not sure USB C needs it.
