    Post up some proven TURBOcharging chargers & cables! Ideally with a screenshot of Ampere showing the charge rate. None of this "it seems pretty quick" stuff, only chargers & cables that show as TURBOcharging! Please try to be specific, preferably with things like Amazon links to the exact item.

    For reference, this is using the charger included with the Moto Z Force Droid.

    I use the Standard Charger that came with the Note 5 along with this cable
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU5303456

    It shows as TurboCharging when i plug it in. I'll get a Ampere Screenshot tonight.

    Waiting for a screen shot



    This is what I get from Aukey 2.0 charger.


    And this is what I get from original turbo charger.

    Both were using a Belkin cable rated at 3.1 USB. Ry I know it's not turbo charging so if you want to move this to a different thread feel free.

    What do you mean by "original turbo charger"? Original to the Droid Turbo?

    Yes. I have the original turbo. That's what I upgraded from. I also have 2 Aukey 2.0 chargers. I have a 2.0 car charger but will test that in about an hour.

    It's a similar charge rate as I'm seeing from any of my QC2/3 chargers, which is far under the included charger's rate. I'm hoping this thread will become a reference for finding chargers that work in the 5000+ mAh range.

    I agree. I'm hoping we can get it figured out. I sent you a pm.

    I wouldn't count on anything close to 5000 except with the Moto charger. 2500-3000+ is much more likely.

    Here's the numbers I get with the Verizon branded usb c fast charger. It did pop up saying turbo charging. It's not as fast as the supplied charger but it'll do. It charges good enough to switch over and start charging the battery mod. What third-party chargers are you using for TurboPower/Fast Charging on the Moto Z?-1471103509574.jpg

    Bump for more info. It appears you need to use a USB C to C cable for best results. Is 5V 3A what one should be looking for with a car charger, along with the USB C to C connection?

    Seeing Charging Rate at "Turbo" vs. "Normal" on Ampere may be enough for me (if I'm not below 60% when testing).

    I bought the Samsung car fast charger at VZW - they told me it would fast charge the Z. Well it doesn't. It charges at the same rate as my Aukey QC 2.0 car charger - and it costs a lot more.

    Is that the hard wired one with the micro USB? VZW suggested the Samsung to me, which does not work. Do you just use a USB C converter?

    Nope it's black and red Verizon branded and has a fixed usbc cable attached permanently to it.
    This is the one. Weird thing is the one reviewer said it didn't work w droid force. No clue what they are talking about as I have a force and it works perfect. Turbo charge and all. I have not tested it for charge times etc. Only plugged it in, saw it enable turbo charge and called it a day.

    I called customer service prior to going to a retail store and testing it out. They had no clue if any of the Verizon branded chargers would work.
    At the store we tested out the Verizon branded usb c cable fast charger. It will also say turbo charging and then charge the battery mod. So far those are the only 2 chargers I've found that will charge the battery mod, besides the supplied charger.
