    Does anyone know of a charger that supports fast charging an iPhone 5/6 at 1000mA+ and Samsung S4/S6 (work phones) at 1300mA+?

    I believe that Samsung and Apple use different circuitry at the data pins - the voltage dividers are slightly different - so I wonder if there's a charger out there that supports fast charging from these brands. Price isn't object since my boss is willing to foot the bill.

    The devices themselves need to support fast (or quick) charging in order to charge at a faster rate than normal. The device itself will prohibit it from charger faster than it can support.

    The Galaxy S6 is the only device of those you listed which supports quick charge, provided you have a quick charger.

    But how is "fast" or "quick" charging defined? Does it have to be 2A+?

    Even with the S4, it seems it'll only pull 500mA from other chargers but 800mA from its official one. With a good cable, it'll draw 1300mA. Unfortunately I can't post links yet, but there's a post on XDA "Findings on Galaxy S4 charging current".

    I wonder if there's a universal charger out there that could give, e.g., the S4 1300mA with a good cable and S6, iPhone 5/6 the maximum current.
