The big list of phones and tablets with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4/4+

Fast charging can be a difficult topic to wrap your head around: there are a bunch of competing standards, all with different cables and power adapters. Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4 and 4+ allow charging at up to 100W, though few devices reach that. Both versions also allow you to use USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) chargers to reach speeds of up to 27W, so your phone or tablet will work with just about any fast charger.

The big list of phones and tablets with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0

There are different versions with different charging speeds, but QC 2.0 and 3.0 are still common to find in today's phones and tablets.

[Update: Back] Satechi's 75W multi-port USB-C PD and Quick Charge 3.0 charger is down to $48

When I pack my bags before traveling, I use something I call my "packlist," which is basically a to-do list that I re-use every time I'm going somewhere. Next to the obvious "tees" and "underwear" entries, I have at least four different chargers: one for my Mac, another one for my smartwatch, a USB-C cable to power up my phone, and a microUSB cord to plug my headphones and battery pack. You could argue I could save myself the trouble of taking so many with me by using adapters, but I usually need to fill up several if not all my devices at the same time, which is why all-in-one chargers are perfectly adapted to me.

[Deal Alert] Pick up an AUKEY car charger with a QC 3.0 port and a USB Type-C 5V 3A port for $9.20 (Normally $19.99)

I really wish that phone manufacturers would make up their minds and choose just one fast charging technology. Some phones use Qualcomm Quick charge, others use a 5V 3A power supply via Type-C (I won't even get started on those who do something else completely different). It's annoying that each group of devices requires a different charger to charge at its peak potential. That is, unless you have one charger that can do both. That's precisely what this AUKEY car charger has, with one port for each charging technology. It's also on sale for more than 50 percent off today when you apply a coupon code.
