    So is Quick Charge 2.0 the tech needed for the quick charging in the S6? There are many cheaper products if that is the case. I just don't know if they use a different format.

    For some reason I thought the Quick Charge 2.0 was a Qualcomm standard and would be different on the Exynos processor.

    Wireless car charging dock. Quick wall charger. Quick car charger if the wireless dock isn't available.

    They're just licensing the technology and calling it fast adaptive charging I believe. I would like a Qi car charger but it's too slow. I think I'll go for a Quick Charge 2.0 car charger instead.

    So Quick Charge 2.0 chargers work exactly like the quick charger that comes with the s6?

    Unless I can get a definitive answer somewhere, I'll probably wait until I get the phone before I pick up any accessories.

    There's no reason at this point to think any differently. No harm in waiting in any event.

    Yep. They're all based on Quick Charge 2.0 by Qualcomm. That's why the Note 4 can use any QC 2.0 chargers too. If you don't believe it though, waiting won't hurt.

    When you use a quick charge adapter, is there a different icon on the phone to show that quick charge is being used? I'm just wondering if I buy a quick charger, can I verify that it is actually working based on a quick look.

    The Note 4 is also using a Qualcomm chip. I think I'll wait just to make sure.

    I use it with my Turbo and I do get a message across the screen of "Turbo charger detected". Obviously if I don't use the quick charger I don't get the message. I'm sure the others have some sort of icon to show fast charging.

    Interesting to note the manual says you cannot use fast charging with the screen on (S6). I didn't see an icon for it nor does the manual mention any special notification and/or symbol when using the fast charging.

    I'm sure the quick charging is considered safe or else it wouldn't be on the phone, but charging a battery faster is a delicate process. I wouldn't be surprised if they disable the screen or do something just to prevent any issues like people running a GPS while also connected to the quick charger. Sounds dangerous.

    I just wonder if when you turn the screen on if it goes to "normal" charging speeds or if it just doesn't let you turn the screen on when it's connected to the turbo charger. Hopefully it's the former.

    The way I read it is if the screen is on, then normal charging. Screen is off - fast charging.

    Well that sucks. What are we going to do for 10 minutes while we quick charge for that extra 4 hours of use?

    I vote we chug beer. Yup. :beer:

    There are two variants, one of which has Exynos and it still quick charges just the same.

    Does the phone have to be on for it to work too? I know there was a previous phone (which one it was is escaping me right now) released that couldn't quick charge while powered totally off.

    Out of habit from my RIM days, power off device and plug in to charge overnight.

    If you have to power off, have to power off.

    To be honest I've never had the phone shut completely down when charging the Turbo. But mine also fast charges with the screen on so I guess it's device dependent.

    Posted via S5 or Turbo.

    Yeah, that's true. I never have to power off, but I was just curious. And that kinda sucks. I wish it worked with the screen on too.

    To power off or not to power off, that is the question that stirs all men's souls.

    Funny thing, Blackberries are what broke me of that habit, they took too damn long to boot up and sync everything that happened overnight.
