Quick Charge 3.0 – Charge twice as fast as Quick Charge 1.0 and 38 % more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0
About Quick Charge 3.0
Quick Charge 3.0 is engineered to refuel devices up to four times faster than conventional charging. It is designed to charge twice as fast as Quick Charge 1.0 and to be 38 % more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0. Now consumers can spend even less time charging, and can grab and go more quickly.
Quick Charge 3.0 employs Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage (INOV), an algorithm which allows your portable device to determine what power level to request at any point in time, enabling optimum power transfer while maximizing efficiency. It also supports wider voltage options, allowing a mobile device to dynamically adjust to the ideal voltage level supported by that specific device. Specifically, Quick Charge 3.0 offers a more granular range of voltages: 200mV increments, from 3.6V to 20V. That way your phone can target one of dozens of power levels.
The technology has the same easy-to-implement design for OEMs as previous versions. It’s 100 percent backward-compatible with Quick Charge 1.0 and Quick Charge 2.0 devices, and it supports a broad range of connectors: Quick Charge 3.0 can be implemented with USB Type-A, USB micro, USB Type-C, or proprietary connectors.
Quick Charge and Qualcomm
Qualcomm Technologies is constantly innovating to bring phones and tablets a superior charging experience. Quick Charge 3.0 will be available in some of newest Qualcomm processors like Snapdragon 820 / 620 / 618 / 617 / 430.
