5 Best LG G4 Quick Chargers

The LG G4 has a lot to offer, even if its starting to show some age. Many love it, and passed on the LG G5. One feature that every owner should know about is something called Quick Charging. The charger in the box doesn’t support it, but almost every major phone over the past few years has the capability. Get the most out of your LG G4 with our help below.

Just like the Motorola DROID Turbo, Galaxy S7, and even the LG G5, the G4 supports something called Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology. Basically allowing the battery to turbo charge at an extremely quick pace when it’s nearly depleted. This gives users nearly 50% battery life after only 30 minutes on the wall charger. Sounds nice, right?

Quick charging is the latest in battery technology, simply because battery capacity technology isn’t advancing as fast as anyone would like. This is the next best thing at the moment, and below we’ll go over five awesome chargers that use adaptive, turbo, or quick charging technology to get your LG G4 battery charged up as quickly (and safely) as possible.

Those who still use one while they wait for the LG G6 release, are probably experiencing worse battery life now that it’s almost 2 years old. If so, these will help you get the most out of the battery, and charging times.

LG didn’t specifically state the LG G4 supports Quick Charging when it was announced, but the Qualcomm Snapdragon 6-core processor inside officially supports the feature. However, in order to get fast charging results owners also need a quick charging wall wart plug. The G4 doesn’t come with one in the box, and instead it’s just a traditional wall charger and micro-USB cable. Like one you’d find at a gas station.

As a result, owners of the LG G4 can easily buy one of multiple Quick Charge capable chargers from eBay, Amazon and more, plug it in, and instantly get nearly 60% faster charging rates. Rather than waiting over two hours for it to fully charge, quick chargers will take the LG G4 from 0 to 100% much faster.

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. Enough to finish out a work day, or give you juice while driving home. It’s an amazing technology, and the best thing we currently have to call an advancement in battery options for smartphones. After 30 minutes it slowly goes back to regular speeds to preserve the life of the battery, and still get you fully charged. Below is a preview of what quick charging does, shown by Qualcomm on the Nexus 6, which works exactly the same on the LG G4.

Sadly the charger in the box isn’t capable of Quick Charging, but the five wallet-friendly options below will work just fine with the LG G4, Galaxy S7, Google Pixel, Moto Z, or any phone from the past few years. Buy any of them from our list, and enjoy faster charging with the LG G4.

    I have a question about using the auto brightness? Does this feature drain the battery faster or slower?

      this article is nothing more than an advertisement, there are no best quick charger for lg g4, because lg g4 sucks, any charger supports QC 2.0 can only charge G4 at 9V/1A which is equal to 9W, compare to normal charge which support 5V/2A=10W, they are about the same, so no quick charger for lg g4

    From what I read on newsgroups is that the charger that comes with the g4 is the incorrect charger. The one that comes with it is for the Flex. Which is completely incompatible. And it slowly starts to ruin your battery when the charging starts to become a problem. I know this because I have had to replace my battery and get the correct third party charger. LG sucks (especially this phone.) Because they didn’t make a charger for this phone at all, that is why they include another charger for your phone that’s for another phone. It’s all about saving themselves a bit of money.
