Elivebuy Quick Charge 2.0 fast wall charger review
The Elivebuy Quick Charge 2.0 Fast Wall charger features Qualcomm’s fast charging technology to get your phone charged around 70% faster as long as your phone safely supports it. I’ve told you why you need a fast charger, now get one.
I’m running out of things to say about chargers, which is good because after this I think I’m done until Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 comes out.
The Elivebuy Quick Charge 2.0 Fast Wall Charger has one USB port, and plugs into a standard wall outlet. It’s a fairly massive plug compared to others that do the same thing, but the $12 price tag may make you overlook the blockiness of the unit.
One thing that really annoys me about this unit is the consistent blue light. It doesn’t do anything. Other units I’ve played with the blue light will turn green or yellow when you’re actually fast charging as opposed to charging. This light just seems there to remind me that the thing exists and thinks that it has power.
The unit appears to be two main blocks. The part that does the charging, and a block that’s the local power adapter. It looks like it should fall apart, but didn’t when I was shaking it around.
In testing I maxed out at +2057mA on my HTC One M9, which is a respectable charging rate for any Quick Charge 2.0 adapter. The rate fell off as the unit heated up, but followed the general curve I see on anything with the QQC2.0 spec certification.
The downsides to this unit as far as I can tell are that it looks like a large block (it is,) looks cheaply made and like it should fall apart (appears utilitarian, doesn’t seem to creak or feel breaky when squeezed,) and doesn’t come with a charging cable.
The Elivebuy Quick Charge 2.0 fast wall charger is available from Amazon for $11.99
