Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ have a feature called Quick Charge technology thanks to the Qualcomm processor inside. This enables the phones to recharge faster than older devices or your previous phone.
How Quick Charge Technology Works
Thanks to a technology called Qualcomm Quick Charge, smartphones are now able to recharge faster than ever before. Rather than taking 3 hours, phones can be fully charged in around 1.5 hours instead. The Galaxy S8 range houses Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0, meaning it can go from 0-50% in just 15-20 minutes.
When the battery is below 10%, it charges at an incredibly fast rate and gets nearly 50% battery capacity in under 25 minutes, which is welcomed in this fast paced day and age, instead of being awkwardly shackled to a wall in public for a couple of hours just so you have enough to get you through the day.
After 30 minutes it goes back to regular speeds (but still faster than normal charging) thanks to Adaptive Charging technology.
What is Adaptive Charging?
At a quick glance, Adaptive Charging could easily be mistaken for Quick Charging, however, that is not the case. What Adaptive Charging does is realise when your Samsung has enough juice to keep it going, it will then turn off the Quick Charge feature to preserve the life of your phones battery cells.
“Enjoy remarkably fast charge times and extended use of your battery. Adaptive Fast Charging is the smartest option to charging your Samsung mobile devices. Not only is it speedy, but it knows when to stop charging to prolong the life of your battery. Simply charge your phone from any power outlet.
