    I have a Verizon Note 4 pre-order and I keep a charger at home as well as at work. The phone will arrive with the one factory charger, and I searched a bit on Amazon looking for a "Note 4 9V charger" after reading a comment that you need a 9V charger instead of the typical 5V charger to make use of the fast charge feature.

    Has anyone located a fast charge compatible charger on Amazon, and if so, could you throw out a link by chance?

    I appreciate any help

    Why look on Amazon when you can get the real deal at Samsung for 50% off using code r1H01X01?
    Adaptive Fast Charging Wall Charger (Detachable microUSB-USB Cable), White | Samsung Mobile
    This is by far better than any deal on a knockoff that you will find...and it will work the way it was intended.

    That sucks. I would rather wait a few weeks and get a decent charger than being impatient and getting some crap off of Amazon that I would most probably regret later.

    The link goes to a dead page now, Samsung must have pulled the page down for some reason since you put the link up last night.

    I doubt it is 9v. It is probably 2A 5v. Typical Android chargers are 1A and the pre lightning iPhone chargers are 2.1A.
    There are many chargers that do both on Amazon. One charger can do 1A and 2.1A depending on which port you use.
    Good Luck!

    It is a 9v 1.67 amp charger... Just looked at mine. It is a physics thing.. Can't charge faster than the current is flowing. Sorry about you icrap not having the biggest, fastest best charger.

    Oh and I use 2 amp chargers all the time on my Android devices and it takes advantage of it quite nicely.

    Most chargers are fairly stupid. You can typically get a no brand 5 volt charger. They have 5 volt output, and the phone adjusts the power going to the battery. But they are reaching the limits of what you can get at 5 volts. So Samsung appears to have put some smarts in the charger. The Samsung charger can set the output voltage up to around 9 volts. That gives the phone more to work with to get what sounds like around 3 amps into the battery (50% in 30 minutes, about a 1C rate). Then the CHARGER voltage falls back to the normal 5 volts.

    IMHO, if you must have the 9 volt and fast charger rate, only ever use the original Samsung charger. I will be using my many cheap 5 volt chargers for a slower charge myself.

    I was wrong. I just picked mine up and it does go to 9v to fast charge.
    Sorry about the misinformation.

    guess I'll be returning the samsung car charger that I have and the S-view case/back...

    but on another Note (see what I did there?) the protective cover that they sell is actually pretty good and snug, a little more snug than the one that was available for the note 2. Gotta love it!

    Woah! Is this as fast as the Samsung charger that the phone comes with?

    According to Qualcomm's website from the link posted above this Incipio car charger is Qi 2.0 certified which is what the fast charge is on the N4. Whether it's as fast as the included Samsung wall charger I don't know. The N4 doesn't come with a 12v car charger. I'm ordering one.

    From the Engadget review, "I clarified with Samsung that it chose a proprietary solution instead of licensing Qualcomm's QuickCharge tech, but it insisted that you could still use QuickCharge 2.0-compatible chargers to achieve the same results."

    I am ordering now too. Thabks

    That's good to know that even though the N4 isn't using Qi 2.0 the Qi 2.0 chargers do work.

    More confirmation that the Note supports both fast charge options:

    Galaxy Note 4- To use fast charging, what kind of charger should be used? | Support | SAMSUNG Saudi Arabia

    [FAQs] Smart Phone : Galaxy Note 4- To use fast charging, what kind of charger should be used?

    Fast charging uses battery charging technology that charges the
    battery faster by increasing the charging power. The Galaxy Note 4
    device supports Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charging feature and
    Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0.

    To use Fast charging on your device, connect it to a battery charger
    that supports Adaptive Fast Charging or Quick Charge 2.0.


    EDIT: Where is the 15% off discount? I don't see it on incip's website...

    Thanks - worked perfectly. Effectively bumping this thread up so others can see as well.

    This is a great feature to have fast charging in the car as well. Frankly I think more people have a need for quick charging in the car vs home.
