Default slow charge

I read a post here and I didn't quite understand which charger should I buy for a quick charge.
Appreciate the help.

The one that came with the phone.

The phone will only take in what it needs.

This phone charges the fastest I have ever witnessed on AC obviously.

only use the charger given with the box cause they have settled some voltage parameters according to phone's battery ...so dont go for any other charger ...it might heat up your battery or any wrong can be happen to u ....

bro it is 2300 mah battery so it takes time to fill up some juice into battery ...

dont worry

Any 2 amp charger will work. 1 amp chargers will work too but won't charge as quickly.

All (good) USB chargers are going to charge at the same 5V as the Nexus 5 charger. Any charger from another phone will work without issue, but if it's under 1.2A it will charge more slowly (many are 1A). Just don't buy a cheap, poorly made charger and you'll be fine.

A slower charge leads to the saturation charge phase taking less time while the constant current phase takes longer. The battery in the Nexus 5 and the accompanying 1.2A charger is meant to give you the quick 70% charge that is discussed in the BU article and then trickle charge during the saturation charge. If you're charging overnight it doesn't matter which method you use, you'll still reach 100% around the same time and the runtime will be the same.
