Just wondered, is there anyone using one of those 3A chargers to charge their device?

Since Z2 supports upto 3A charging.

I think this is manufacturer and kernel specific.

How quickly would they charge with 3A...

I use 1A through magnetic and it's lightening quick

I assume a 3300 mAh battery would take 1.1h (3.3/3).

3A would be twice as fast as the stock wall charger and if yours is 1A, it'll be thrice as fast.

Li-ion batteries are smart, so are the chargers. If possible check reviews about whichever 3A charger you pick first. Battery won't get damaged because the chip they use will prevent charges heavier than they accept. Its all about if anyone's willing to spend the extra money to perform this experiment and see if the charger will actually make a real world difference in charge time or not.
