    Thanks Ericf. I just swapped the Samsung for this. It does work. I just wish it didn't have the hideous attached coiled cable.

    I bought the Verizon branded usb c fast charger to be able to charge my battery mod without any worries.

    But since that is the only USB C to USB C cable that I now own I figured I would look on Amazon for a few of them.

    There are a lot with a lot of different charging/data transfer speeds. So I spoke to Verizon tech support to verify speed of the cable that came with that charger. It's 2.0 speed with a transfer rate of 480 mb/s.
    Amazon and monoprice.com have several different rated cables from 2.0,3.0, and 3.1. But the faster it is the higher the price too.
    Since there are so many different ones out there figured I would share that we could buy the cheaper 2.0 speed cables.

    I had to drain my battery mod first to test

    First - to be clear, any charger will charge the batter mod AFTER the phone gets to 100%.
    The VZW Car Turbo does not charge the battery mod at the same time as the phone. BUT my stock Force Turbo charger does not charge both at the same time.
    The VZW Car Turbo Charger is faster then the QC2.0 ad QC3.0 chargers I have (they are both about the same), but not as fast at the AC brick (not surprising).

    Agree - BUT they charge at a rate much faster than a non QC charger. I get 1200+ mAmp reported via Ampere on my QC chargers, and around 2200+ on the VZW Turbo charger.

    I picked up this along with 2 6ft cables and 2 10 ft cables. Price was the same for each different length. So why not. I like the longer cables. I ordered a package of the same brand, CHEOTECH, but those were usb a to usb c. Nice thick cables. Feel like they will last a long time.

    Should be delivered today. I'll let you know. I needed to do something besides a power strip. That was on a lightning deal so it cheap. I still use my turbo, nexus 7, and nexus 10. So needed the USB A ports, and now have use for the USB C ports.

    But even if it doesn't turbo charge it should be fast. Supposed to be 78 watt total. So it will fast charge I think. I'll edit this later and let you know.

    Car charger that gets the turbocharging toast activated (only tested for a few minutes battery was at 56% and was charging at around 2300 amps.
    I don't know that I would pay the extra dollar for the coiled cable, probably would have preferred the straight one. You also basically get for free a micro usb/usb c adapter for free with a current offer. I haven't received that yet.

    Thanks for posting this - I picked up the charger and decided to try it with a USB A to C cable (also by Choetech) and I get 1480max charge. I am curious before I get the C to C cable, do you have an A to C you could test with and see if you get similar results.

    So the Aukey power bank brings up a different result.
    It does give the pop-up saying turbo charging no matter which USB C to USB C cable I use. But it only charged at about 1200 mah. But the interesting thing is it does switch over and charge the battery mod. So that is good. Even though it charged at a slower rate it charged my phone from 63% to 100% in about 30 minutes. I am happy with that.

    What % was your battery at when you started?

    Is there a boost if you don't have the battery mod attached?

    The phone was at 63% so I don't really know if there was a boost because the battery mod was attached. I will test it tomorrow without the mod on it. The big thing for me is it charged the mod.

    I need to run the battery down lower and test.

    To reiterate, I believe the minimum to get the "TurboPower" toast message (and Ampere Charge Rate: Turbo) you'll have to use a 5V/3A source.

    Motorola's included TurboPower 30 does 5V/5.7A.

    Oh I understand completely. I was just letting go you know the message popped up and that then allowed the battery mod to charge.
    I could care less if it charges at a lower amperage as long as I have options to charge the mod.
    Is it possible that being USB C cable is what prompts the turbo message to pop up even though it's at a lower speed?

    This seems to be about as fast as this charges as far as amps go. I ran it down to 49% today with some heavier use to test it. But as you can see in the screen shot it lists it as turbo charging. So since it charges the mod after the battery I'm happy with that.

    I suspect that using a minimum 5V/3A charger with a cable that supports it properly is what triggers the "TurboPower" message.

    No mod attached. Funny thing is it still was 100% in just over 30 minutes.
