Gift idea: Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger for only $24 with free Amazon Prime shipping [CONTEST]


Tenergy Quick Charge 2.0 charger 1

We’re kicking off yet another day of Phandroid’s Gift-a-Day Giveaway, giving you guys not only another great new gift idea, but a chance at winning some pretty awesome prizes.

You may remember our “must-have” charging accessories from week 1 of our gift ideas. I devoted a large section of Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 accessories because, at the time of writing, my favorite accessory was actually sold out on Amazon (with no date stock would be returning). But now, it looks like stock has finally returned, and you guy can now get your hands on the Tenergy 18W universal USB featuring Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology.

For as long as smartphones have been around, I dare say Quick Charge 2.0 is one of the single greatest advancements we’ve seen in the mobile space. I know, it sounds silly. But once you experienced it for yourself — and see how charging a nearly completely dead smartphone to 50% will only take a few minutes — you’ll become a believer.

The model we’re showing you today from Tenergy ($24) is not only cheaper than the Motorola Turbo Charger which runs $35 + shipping, but better in that it has a colored LED light to tell you when Quick Charge 2.0 is active. Because not all devices are compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, this takes the guess work out of wondering if your phone is charging at crazy Quick Charge 2.0 speeds, or just regular (it works fine for non-Quick Charge 2.0 devices too).

A partial list of some of the more popular Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 compatible devices can be found here and includes:

  • Motorola DROID Turbo
  • Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen)
  • Nexus 6
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
  • HTC One M8
  • HTC Desire Eye
  • HTC One Remix
  • Sony Xperia Z3
  • Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
  • Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact
  • Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
  • Sony Xperia Z2

The best part is you can order the Tenergy Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger from Amazon today for only $24 and if you have Prime, it’ll be on your doorstep by Thursday. I’ve already ordered 3 (2 for myself, and 1 as a gift) and they work fantastic. Link provided below.

  13. Great for when you need to charge your phone quick!

  14. Great giveaway.

  15. Would be nice addition to a Nexus 5… :)

  17. Will be perfect as an extra charger for my Nexus 6… if it ever ships.

  18. Might actually pick up one of these

  19. I could use one for myself.

  20. Dear Santa,

    The group at Phandroid are awesome, please give to them generously!
    Thank you,

  21. I was looking for one just a couple days ago. Glad to see it’s back!

  22. Just about to buy a second motorola one, bought this instead.

  23. Thank you very much.

  24. Nice

  25. I prefer to cook … i mean charge my iPhone in the microwave bwahahaha….

  26. This is a very good gift cause technology that need a fast daily charging is the need of every body !! Great Idea !!

  27. Gotta get me one of these!!

  28. Your post on HTC accessories has their rapid charger on sale for $17.50. That’s actually on sale, uses the same charging tech, and will work with any compatible phone.

    1. Your’e right, but HTC’s charger is out of stock/ back ordered (it’s actually been out of stock since HTC announced it). So while you can pay for it now, there’s no date and for those looking to gift something like this in time for Christmas, this Tenergy charger is your best bet.

  29. :-)

  30. Love it!

  31. With the crappy battery life of my Nexus 5, definitely would be useful…

    1. Nexus 5 doesn’t support Quick Charge 2.0 :(

  32. htc has a $14 quick charger

    1. You’re right, but for today only (it’s $17) and it’s back ordered, so it might not arrive in time for Christmas. On that note, I’ve been page monitoring HTC’s charger and it’s actually never been in stock since it was announced. Not sure what gives but I ordered anyway and it’s say back ordered with no date. :/

  33. that’s great for charging on the go

  34. I love quick charging. Droid Turbo!

  35. QuickCharge is mighty awesome… I may have to pick one of these up!

  36. Is there an authoritative list of compatible phones somewhere?

    1. There is:

      I’ve updated the post with the current running list of US devices.

      1. Great! Thanks, Chris!

  37. QuickCharge is the future. Everyone should have this

  38. I would love one.

  39. looks like a good gift idea

  40. I need this

  41. added to my wishlist for later

  42. I should love to win

  43. great gift idea.

    nice to have a wall port

  44. Always great to have a quick charger. Love the one that came with my note 4. Might have to get a second one to travel with

  45. Anything that cuts down on charging time is a great idea. Techie or not, no one likes waiting hours for their devices to charge.

  46. No S5 support baffles me…

  47. Faster charging is always a plus but it’s unfortunate that it’s limited to a handful of Snapdragon devices and excludes my Nexus 5. Does the quick charge potentially damage the battery longevity over time?

    Forwarding this product link to my Moto X friends.

  48. There is more great swag in this contest than any I have seen!!

  49. Its too bad that more devices don’t support this

  50. Please let me win the Nexus 6 or the Moto 360!!!

  51. Love the idea and concept, though it’s unclear if the Oneplus One is supported though it has the 801 soc.

  52. Still not as convenient as wireless charging.

    1. I’d argue that it’s more convenient. You can’t actually use your phone while it’s charging wirelessly (you can, but not effectively). Plus wireless charging is slow so it’s really only meant for overnight fillups.

      Quick Charge 2.0 takes you 50% in a half hour and you can still use your phone to make calls, play games, send messages, etc.

  53. Would be great, but I use a nexus 5 :-(

  54. Would definitely use it when I get my Nexus 6!

    1. N6 comes with a quick charge charger

      1. Yes I know, but would maybe nice to have one at home and one at work.

  55. So it’s available in EU version too, right?

  56. Gotta get one for myself.

  57. Every smartphone owner needs one for sure.

  58. I think I deserve a charger like this. I have horrible battery issues.

  59. Mmm, nexus!

  60. I want one!

  61. The product sounds like it would be great, however Qualcomm has earned a spot on my blacklist of companies to boycott due to its public opposition to net neutrality in the US. So I definitely will not be buying this product.

  62. Great call on the charger. It’s something everyone with an Android device could use with an additional boost to those who have QC2.0 compatible devices. Thanks again for the great opportunity!

  63. I don’t know why but what’s the chance of fire?

  64. Can confirm: is a good charger.

  65. Can use it

  66. Is there any benefit if you don’t own one of the phones listed?

  67. I hope it works with my OnePlus One!

  68. i want one so bad !!

  69. pretty cool but I think my note 3 charger does just fine

  70. None of my devices are compatible, but I look forward to trying this out in the future when I do have one capable of using it. Seems pretty awesome.

  71. Good luck all!

  72. I think this is a great wall charger. It charges your devices fast!

  73. Cool prizes.

  74. I personally love it. I normally forget to charge my phone overnight which leaves me in a pinch during the day. I seem to not be able to leave it on charge more than 20 minutes which gives me about 2-3 %. With this that 20 minutes would give me a whole lot more.

  75. I’m still not convinced that charging a battery that quick is actually safe. It will be curious to see long term effects with the batteries and chargers….

  76. Love the idea of a quick top off on the charger getting me through the rest of the day, just wish my phone was compatible. Guess I just need to upgrade ☺

  77. I wonder if this device heats up alot?

  78. who doesn’t want faster charging. glad the battery and power is starting to catch up to the rest of the mobile space. a nice stocking stuffer even it you don’t give it to someone.

  79. This would be great for my slow charging devices

  80. This would be great. My tablet charges so s l o w l y!

  81. great and practical gift

  82. Would work great with my M8!

  83. Quicker charging is a no-brainer as long as it’s safe.

  84. wonderful

  85. It might be useful but I’m not sure most people I know would be too excited about it.

  86. Hmmm… one of these might be good for those times when I only have 15 minutes before I have to leave again. Quick charger to the rescue!

  87. Didn’t realize this would work for my Sony Z3!

  88. This can actually save lots of time of chagring our devices. Awesome giveaway and amazing daliy gift ideas. Thank you Phandroid.

  89. For work this would be amazing

  90. I have a Z3 and I only charge through the magnetic charge thing on side. I have never inserted a USB into phone actually Lol. Do you think the quick charge would still work through that?

    1. Pretty sure it won’t work

  91. Too bad it does not work with my phone

  92. Will it damage the phone?

  93. It’s a must-have charger.

  94. Love it, I have one and might buy another :)

  95. The rafflecopter link is bad it goes to a WiiU raffle instead. I wish my g3 had quick charge

  96. Would be perfect with my brand new Moto X.

  97. I like this charger along with the rest of the list you guys have put together…I only hope Santa follows me on Twitter.

  98. I want it!

  99. My wife’s phone is always dead, this would be a great gift!

  100. I could totally see this as an awesome gift for someone who uses their phone all the time!

  101. Will this negatively influence battery’s health?

  102. Sounds fantastic!

  103. just what we need to quick charge our device ^^

  104. *Glares at my phone* why do you have to be Exynos?

  105. This is a must have!

  106. If it does what it says it does it could be pretty sweet. Technically speaking….

  107. Bummer that the prongs don’t retract. Lame that they ignored what everyone else features.

  108. Great when you are in a rush and your phone is almost dead (That is if your phone supports 2.0)

  109. It looks fine, but I rather use the original charger, it could be a good option if it was also a power bank.

  110. I’m in!

  111. In

  112. I like to comment and win one of these fabulous prizes

  113. ohh nice!

  114. finally the people that make the technology giving us what we need.
    for sure on my list.

  115. I think this is a great wall charger, if it does what it says!

  116. count me in!

  117. I could definitely use this.

  118. The raffle link leads to the sister site giveaway, hence all the comments on here vying for the ‘comment entry’

    It’ll be weird if a non-WiiuDaily reader wins a gaming item vs tech.

  119. Decent nice Gift Idea !

  120. It’s a great idea if it was present in more phones

  121. Amazing how fast.

  122. I wish I had found this a few weeks ago. Dropped $35 on the motorola for my N6. :(

  123. Good luck!

  124. Quick charge is so useful. Got to have it on all my future devices.

  125. I have an HTC One M8 and my battery gets me through most days but I’d love to finally be able to take advantage of the quick charge 2.0 technology just to see what I’ve been missing out on.

  126. Quick charger…awesome prize.

  127. All these different quick-charge methods have me ignoring all of them because I haven’t bothered to pay attention to what works with what (nevermind ALL my various micro-USB devices around the house); consequently, I may be waiting too long to charge some things…

  128. I’d love to use this but will definitely need to confirm it works with my phone (LG G2).

  129. This would be a great addition for my M8!!

  130. Love it and cant wait to try it out with my M8

  131. I love it! I hate waiting for my devices to recharge. Great piece of tech!

  132. Goodluck all! Still rocking my Nexus 4.

  133. I’d love to have my phone charge in an hour or less. Looks like something I’d love to have

  134. wow nice!!

  150. What a great birthday present this would make. Dec 24,

  151. It would be great to try out quick charging!

  152. Nice gift

  153. My nexus needs a quick charge because it has such a long battery life. I also have a lot of devices so a quick charge would mean less of a charging queue

  154. Nice gift idea

  155. I suppose one of these would be nice to have when you’re on the go and need to top the battery off, but I feel that my phone makes it through the day pretty well. Just throw it on the charger at night and bam, good to go.

  156. Hope I win :D

  157. Its great

  176. I can always use more chargers, and a quick charger would be even better
