Qualcomm’s Quick Charging 3.0 Announced and It’s 4X Faster Than Normal Charging

Qualcomm has announced the Quick Charging 3.0 which is said to be 38% power efficient than Quick charging 2.0 and is twice faster than QC 1.0 and 4X times faster than normal convention charging. Quick charging 3.0 is 100% backward compatible with QC 1.0 and 2.0 with a range of connectors. Qualcomm says you will get 80% of charge with just 35 minutes of charging.  Quick charging 3.0 can be used on USB Type-A, USB micro, USB Type-C or proprietary connectors and Accessories Like wall chargers, car chargers, battery packs, etc will support Quick charging 3.0. It uses Intelligent Negotiation for Optimum Voltage (INOV), an algorithm which basically allows your portable device to determine the power level to request at any point in time, which in turn improves the optimum power transfer while maximizing efficiency and its supports wider voltage options which lets the device to dynamically adjust the ideal voltage supported by specific device. Quick Charge 3.0 ships with Snapdragon 820, 620, 618,617 and 430 chipsets but the devices that are already launched with same Chipset will not support Quick charging 3.0 as it comes by default with the devices that are launching in 2016.
