5 Quick Chargers for the Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 Edge



If you’re one of the millions of users still enjoying the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, we have a tip for you. It’s called fast charging, and surprisingly many owners don’t take advantage of it. You may be frustrated by the lack of a removable battery, or want better battery life while waiting for the Android Nougat update. If so, read on for more details.

It’s similar to Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology found inside many phones from the past few years. Which essentially allows the battery to turbo charge at an extremely quick pace when it’s nearly depleted. Samsung promises 4 hours of battery life after just 10 minutes on the wall charger. Awesome, right? You just need the right charger.

Fast or quick charging is the latest in battery technology, simply because battery capacity tech isn’t going anywhere. With that in mind, we’ll be sharing a list of chargers that will give you the most battery as quick as possible. All either fast, adaptive, or Turbo charging compatible.


Essentially when the battery is below 10%, it charges at an incredibly fast rate and gets you nearly to 50% battery capacity in under 30 minutes. This is typically enough for the rest of a busy work day, or to get you through a night out on the town. It’s an amazing technology.

Here in 2017 we even have Quick Charge 3.0 that does 50% in 15 minutes. Still, the Galaxy S6 recharges plenty fast. After the first 30 minutes it slowly goes back to regular speeds to preserve the life of the battery. Below is a preview of what quick charging does, shown by Qualcomm on the Nexus 6, which works nearly identical to Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charging on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

As you can see, using a regular charger found at a gas station, or from an old device you pulled out of a box or closet, the device charges extremely slow. The way a phone would in 2012 or so. However, the device on the far end got to 50% in the same amount of time a regular charger delivered only 22% battery life. That’s a huge increase, and something worth using. The power is in the wall-wart that you plug into the socket, then any regular USB cord will work.

On our own Galaxy S6 we plugged it on at 5% and after only 5 minutes it was at 15%, then after 15 minutes on the wall it was at 33%, and after only a half an hour we had 63% battery life. That’s more than enough to finish the rest of a day. in 50 minutes it was nearly full, and in just over an hour it was 100% fully juiced up ready to go. This is something all owners can appreciate.

Oddly many still don’t know about it, which is where we come in. Thankfully the Galaxy S6 has a Samsung “Adaptive fast charger” in the box. Whether you lost it over the years, or just want extras, here’s a selection of the best choices available. These will hold you over until the Galaxy S8 arrives.

Your best bet is to just buy a second Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger directly from Samsung themselves. This ensures you're getting the perfect charger made exactly for your smartphone. Samsung sells these on its own website, but they're currently on sale at Amazon. In fact, get a three pack and extra charging cords for $23

      your phones operating system has crashed and when you turn it off it wont go past the samsung upload screen then samsung cannot do anything to hep you your carrier has to flash the operating system back on your phone but if they dont have the technology in stores to do that then ytheyll have to replace the phone but usually thats a free replacement being its through the carrier defect. i went through the same thing with sprint about august of 2015

    Ah so the quick charge 2.0 mechanism is compatible / can be taken advantage of by Samsung’s fast charging?

    Cory, really useful information. But I think there’s more new technologies by samsung that can compete with these old ones and can perform more better. Yes, it’s the new ‘Samsung Fast charge’: it is the Samsung Fast Charge as it is dubbed is made to revolutionize the concept of recharging smart devices. Earlier the company announced a wireless charging built-in into the Galaxy S6. But even more eye catching has been the inclusion of new concept into the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+.

    I bought a new Samsung S6 about 10 months ago. My quick charger is no longer working. Do I need to buy a new one or can I get it replaced?

      Cindy my charger failed too after owning the phone for only a few months. I contacted samsung thru their website and they opened a ticket for me and asked me to send it in and they would replace it. It has to be in the first 12 months. Also if you are with Verizon they might give you another free. Samsung was going to take 2 to 4 weeks turn around so I called verizon and they just sent me one for free. (Actually they were out of stock but they had me purchase from samsung and just gave me an account credit for the amount I spent)

    I have purchased so many of these Chargers at first when I get it it will charge in about an hour and 15 minutes then about a week later 3 hours then 6 hours and yesterday 9 hours I believe the chargers I purchased from eBay are a dud. I am just going to have to spend the money and buy one from Samsung directly because I have so many Chargers that are incapable of doing what they used to do when I first got them
