Default How long should it take to charge?

My Sprint GS5 takes around 1 1/2-2 hrs to charge form 10% up to 100%. How do I enable USB 3.0 mode so my phone will charge faster? Thanks in advance.

That's about right. It's got a big battery and if you use it while it's charging remember that it's also discharging at the same time.

Generally slow charging is better for batteries anyway.

Charging faster creates more heat which impacts longevity of the battery.

Grant it we are not talking like OMG in 6 months you will need a new one but a battery that is always slow charged will generally outlast one that is quick charged. Now by how much, that I can't say but just sayin lol
