As per the Qualcomm, this rapid charge technology allows your smartphones battery to get charged 40% faster than previous generation. Where the normal battery generally take up to 4 hours to charge, a Quick Charge can accomplish the job in just 3 hours.

Qualcomm noted in a blog post:

A phone with Qualcomm Quick Charge 1.0 can charge up to 40% faster than older phones. A phone without Quick Charge 1.0 could be stuck plugged in charging for more than four hours. With Quick Charge 1.0, the same phone can reach its full charge in three hours or less. The less time you spend charging your mobile device, the more time you get to use it; your mobile device becomes truly mobile.

We are pretty surprised to hear first time about this rapid Charge technology, although smartphones and tablets equipped with it have been available in the market for last many months. People are also curious to know why Qualcomm didn’t reveal this existing rapid charging technology earlier.


Some notable Android devices equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset are HTC Droid DNA, Samsung Galaxy S3, LG Nexus 4, and Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD. You can find the full list of 70 devices on Qualcomm’s blog and Snapdragon device finder.
