The latest batch of flagship phones has been pretty epic. The only real downfall to the whole lineup of devices is the battery life. The LG G4, Galaxy S6 and even the M9 all have less than perfect battery life. The saving grace here is that all of these devices support Qualcomm’s 2.0 Quick Charge. Quick Charge basically triples the speed of your charging. While the Galaxy S6 Edge has been one of my favorite phones ever to own, it is also one of the worst phones I’ve ever owned when it comes to battery life. I am a pretty heavy user, but having to plug my phone in at 3:00 in the afternoon is less than ideal. The G4 was not much better. For me I was able to get to about 4:00 in the afternoon before needing a charge.
The Galaxy S6 Edge comes with a fast charging wall charger, but both the One M9 and the G4 do not come with one. Aukey has a great Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger. In my testing it increased charge times of the HTC One M9 by more than 3 times! I was able to get about a 45% charge in about 30 minutes. The same charger works just as well with the Galaxy S6 Edge, LG G4, and any other device that supports 2.0 Quick Charging. This is a must have if your device did not come with a fast charger in the box. The charger comes with a 3.3ft charge cable. It is currently on sale for $14.99. It normally goes for $39.99
3:00 pm normally hits while I’m still pretty much in the middle of my work day. My office is basically in my work truck so I am never really near a wall outlet. I have had several car chargers, but when you know the speed of quick charge it is painful to have to use a standard car charger. My Galaxy S6 Edge takes about 5 hours to fully charge with a standard car charger. Aukey has a two port car charger that supports Quick Charge 2.0! Both ports will do the quick charging which is pretty awesome. With the Aukey Car Charger my Galaxy S6 Edge charges in about an hour! The charger is normally $49.99 but is currently on sale for $16.99!
