    does this phone come with a "special" charger to take advantage of the fast charging speeds or will my existing micro USB chargers from my droid maxx do the same as the original one that comes with the droid turbo?

    thanks

    Yes, it comes with the Turbo charger which allows for faster charger on certain devices.

    As you probably have figured out, most microUSB ac or car chargers will charge the Turbo... but if you want the Rapid charging, like #jjjones said, you will need buy the Droid Turbo charger.

    i would like to buy an extra charger but they are expensive.

    $35 on the motorola website.

    ebay doesn't even really sell them.

    With the battery life of the Turbo and the rapid charger on hand, in my opinion...a spare rapid charger is a waste of your money.

    With as long as the battery lasts I only actually charge every other night. But I use a regular USB charger. It still shuts off after topping off just like the turbo charger. I don't think it really matters. And 35.00 for a backup is too steep.

    good point.

    $35 for any charger is just too much.

    Good news, you don't need a Motorola Turbo Charger to Turbo Charge your phone. I picked this one up from eBay for $23, and it's down to $19 now. I use it at work when needed, and I like it better than the Motoroa brand, Definitely more portable, and easier to carry in your brief case.

    Honestly, I don't even remember if it came with a cord. It just takes a standard USB cable, so the world is your oyster on cord length; if you want a long one, buy a long one, or scrounge one from you collection if you're like me and have about a half million. SOME USB cables won't carry the "Turbo" current. I don't know why that is, but most of the ones I have used will. You'll know when you plug it in; the phone displays a message "Turbo charger detected" (or similar). Best of luck to you.

    What you need to check is the amperage rating on your charger. For the fastest charging it would have amperage rating at 3A. Quick Charge 2.0 specs are 5V (standard USB), 9V and 12V and amperage rating up to 3A. The bottom line: You can use the charger but the speed will depend on the output rating of the old charger.
