    I got a Quick Charger today that's using Qualcomm's 2.0 technology (from Amazon). I found that when charging--the phone will freeze, randomly load Google search, and just be all-around sluggish. After a restart it's better for a little while, then go goofy again. Take it off charger or use a regular charger and all is well.

    Phone also gets pretty warm but that's probably expected. Oh, and BTW, it charged from 48% to 88% in 30 minutes.

    Anyone else experiencing this odd behavior?

    Got mine Monday as well. I haven't used it while plugged in yet except to check the power while measuring today. Perhaps the heat is causing the issues and causing the clock to throttle down.

    My charge rates over time are below. As expected it gets to 80% pretty quickly then ramps down sharply.

    Plugged in to quick charge with 2% indicated
    Min % %/m
    40 57 1.375
    15 77 1.333
    5 83 1.2 (+81% in 1 hr)
    5 86 .6
    5 89 .6
    5 91 .4
    5 93 .4
    10 96 .3

    Does the phone give you any kind of notification that it is using a faster charging technology?

    My other half got a Samsung Note 4 the other day. It comes with a "fast charger" (QC not speficied). When I plugged the note into that it came up with a message about fast charging. Tried my M8 and didn't see any message but it may have been a bit faster charging.

    Only issue I have is that the touch screen can be a tad wonky...

    I have to press the icons 2 or 3 times to get them to activate..

    I am using the Getwow(TM) 18W Turbo Adaptive Fast AC Home Wall Travel USB Charger Adapter.

    This unit does indicate on the product that it is approved and supports Qualcomm's rapid charge technology.

    It's a great unit at a great price and it does rapid charge my device.... I can get a full charge in about an hour from 10%.

    That's the unit I was using. I returned it and got one of HTC's Qualcomm 2.0. It works well but I don't think it charges quite as fast. Haven't done any real analysis though. Qualcomm says 75% faster; HTC says theirs is 40% faster.
