Charge your phones and tablets four times faster than conventional charging technology. The all new Quick Charge 3.0 from Qualcomm is the next generation of charging the devices faster that any other available chargers in the market. According to the company news release, Quick Charge 3.0 is designed to charge twice as fast as Quick Charge 1.0 and to be 38 percent more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0.
Phone charging is arguably the peskiest daily task, but Qualcomm Technologies is constantly innovating to bring phones and tablets a superior charging experience. We started with Qualcomm Quick Charge 1.0, which introduced our first fast charging solution, able to charge up to 40% faster than conventional charging. Quick Charge 2.0 followed a year later, increasing the charge time advantage up to 75%, as well as introducing an array of compatible accessories including wall adapters, car adapters, and power banks.
In reference to the technical datasheet, the Quick Charge 3.0 employs Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage (INOV), an algorithm which allows your portable device to determine what power level to request at any point in time, enabling optimum power transfer while maximizing efficiency. It also supports wider voltage options, allowing a mobile device to dynamically adjust to the ideal voltage level supported by that specific device. Specifically, Quick Charge 3.0 offers a more granular range of voltages: 200mV increments, from 3.6V to 20V, as stated in the release.
The technology has the same easy-to-implement design for OEMs as previous versions and provides 100 percent backward-compatible with Quick Charge 1.0 and Quick Charge 2.0 devices, and it supports a broad range of connectors.
