Not sure how you folks are using a note 3 charger when it's usb 3.0. The note 3 charged up in 2 hours or so while the m8 takes 4+. I'd say it's due to the added power for the usb 3.0 cable?

Slightly slower then the stock HTC One.. one.



iPhone charger outputs 1amp. Stock HTC outputs 1.5amps.


Though the difference might not be that noticeable.

Tablet (or some Phablets) chargers usually output 2amps. That would make a difference to the charge time.

However, most chargers are 5v. To take full advantage of quick charge 2.0 it requires a specially made charger which delivers 9volts / 2amps.

That's the 2.0amp one right? It heats the phone up but it charges really fast. Is that ok to use?

You can safely use a 2A or 2.1A charger. Technically you will charge a bit faster, but it probably won't be terribly noticeable.

As long as it's not hot enough to fry an egg on, honestly, you'll be fine.
