    Depends on the remaining charge in the battery. Why would you turn off the Fast Charge setting? To use another charger? I turn my phone off when I turn in for the night and plug it in while I'm getting ready for work. It's fully charged when I'm ready to leave.

    About 90 minutes for 100% with fast charge so normal charge should be 2 hours+.

    I really need an info on this topic.

    I thought it depend on the voltage and amps for example i got rav power charger in 5v1a takes atleast 2 to 3hrs. But in my 5v2.1a take atleast 1hr.

    I actually tested and timed mine as I was curious.

    From 2% to 100%, it took me around 1 hour and 20 minutes. However, the first 30 minutes really charged 50% but then it somehow slowed down.

    The Note 4 has software that supports faster charging of the battery, but it requires a charger unit that also works with the software.

    As far as the volts/amps thing.

    Think of volts as water pressure and amps as the water flow rate/speed.

    Generally speaking, the more amps you have, the faster your battery will charge. But it will need a certain level of volts to maintain constant amperage.

    Most regular chargers are rated somewhere between 1A-2A at 5V.

    You can't use an iPhone cord with a Note or any samsung. Totally different cord. Use your stock cord and wall unit don't use the iPhones because even if it does work (the wall unit because again the cord WILL NOT) it'll be slower.

    If you are using an iPhone charger for a lightening phone, it only charges at 1amp I believe.
    The Note4 can take 2amp from regular charger at 5v. So using another non lightening iPhone charger would be better. They charge at 2.1 amp.
    The fast charge uses 9v and 1.6 amps I think.
    Good Luck!

    Quick charge + the 9v samsung quick charge adapter will pull down 3000 ma with screen off. Once past 50 percent it drops down to 1800 / 1900 ma.
    With screen off on good 2 amp or 2.1 amp (5v) charger I'm seeing 1800 ma roughly. (Touchpad Charger)
    In all instances draw is significantly less when screen is on.

    I'm confused to what the op is asking as in the title it says how long does quick charging take but then he says how long does it take to charge with it off ?

    What you want to compare is power.



    Power = voltage x current

    15w = 9v x 1.67a
    10w = 5v x 2a


    So 0.1a @ 460v >2a @ 5v.

    Lightning adapters allow up to 12W power, so a 5v charger will usually provide approx 2A for iphone chargers.

    iPad ones do .. not the ones that come with phones (those are 5W).

    Correct, but the adapters themselves are still capable of 12W, whether or not they are paired with a charger that is rated that high is another thing.

    I should have made that more clear.

    Assuming 5v,

    12w =2.4a
    10w=2a

    This may seem like a silly question, but, are you using the charging brick and cable that came with your Note 4?

    You might also try pulling the battery for a few minutes and then put it back in.

    If none of these things work, you may have a defective battery.
