    I think I read in the manual, that the fast charging doesn't fast charge when the phone is in use?

    My understanding is that the plug that comes with the phone must be used for fast charging.

    I saw posted that the phone will make use of whatever current it has and that a faster 2amp charger still charges faster than the previous or similar phones.

    But yes, to maximize the fast charge the screen should be off. But no matter how you cut it, this baby charges quick. No matter the circumstances.

    Hello, I was wondering If anyone knew if I could use the fast charge with my other notes? The note 8 and note 2, or would it damage the battery? Thanks

    Nope, you can't. The Note 4 has specific hardware that enables fast charging.

    Well he could use it to charge his other phones.. It just won't take advantage of the fast charging.

    Buffy it'll be fine.. The battery won't be damaged. The battery will only allow whatever it can handle for the charge.

    Thank you both :-) if it doesn't benefit from the fast charging I'll stick with the original cable :-)

    The Note 4 has a unique charger, so you need to use the one specific to it. However, that doesn't mean older chargers shouldn't still work at least from my understanding they still should. They'll just be charging at 'normal' speeds.

    For the Note 4, do you have to use the fast adaptive charger or can you also use the regular chargers from previous Note models?

    You can use any Micro Usb charger
    but when you use the Samsung charger which comes with your Note 4
    You have to ON the feature of Fast Charge which is built in the Note 4 works only on the Note 4 & Edge for now

    which is a pretty good feature

    I've been curious as to why Samsung hasn't (at least when I last checked) been selling extra Fast Chargers on their accessories site. I have a number of regular 2.0 amp chargers floating around, but it'd be nice to have an extra Fast Charger or two. Plus one for the car now that I think about it. That's probably the one place I could use it most of all. (As I always have with my phones' OEM chargers, my Fast Charger is kept in my bedroom for charging overnight -- which is probably the place I need it least of all.)

    My understanding is that the rapid charging is based on Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which I imagine would mean you could use any Quick Charge 2.0 compatible charger. I found this one on Amazon for $20, but there are no reviews and no indication that it would as a rapid charger with the Note 4.

    This site lists official Quick Charge 2.0 devices and accessories although it may not be up to date.

    The Incipio charger seems popular; I'm looking into it...

    What about the battery charger you can buy? I guess it wont have the hardware to support the fast charging? So in that case its no difference if I just use a Samsung 2amp normal charger with it?

    Cheers

    My "Fast Charging" option is greyed out and checked, but it is not on...?

    Is it grayed all the time or when charging? I believe it is grayed while charging.
    Also if you are using a power saving mode, I heard that may disable it but I don't know why.
    Good Luck!

    I have an issue with my adaptive fast charging. When turn fast charging is turned on, I noticed that when I plug in my charger there is a little notification that says "adaptive fast charging". But on 2 occasions after using allcast app and my battery level was around 10-20%, it no longer "fast" charges. I've reset, turned off the phone, power saving turned off, and still not luck. After 4 hours charging my battery level is only at 80%. I've reset my phone already to factory, but still took a couple of times unplugging and plugging the charger to get the "fast" charging to work again. It was charging fine until yesterday again. Any thoughts?
