Just pulled the trigger on a ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 tablet which I received yesterday. I must say, so far I am loving this device, and it's quite an upgrade from my old Nexus 7 2013. The specifications sheet says it is Quick Charge 3.0 capable with 18-watt certified chargers. However, I've seen a post or two on other forums that they couldn't get their 18-watt Quick Chargers to actually- well, Quick Charge this device. So has anyone here had success with Quick Charge 3.0 chargers and the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10? If so, which one do you recommend that's known to work with the ZenPad? I've had my eye on this one. What do you think?

Thanks for any help.

This sin't a reply to your question per-se so forgive me in advanced. I'm considering to buy this tablet as something cheap to generally browse the web and what not. I've been umming and arring purely because this isn't a well known device. How are you finding it? I'm wanting to buy it's big brother, so to speak, the Z500KL with LTE and the bigger battery as it seems the perfect tablet for my needs but it seems a little dated for something in 2017.

The specs are somewhat up-to-date but they're pretty much the same as the Tab S2 by Samsung. The amount of RAM is good but the old Hexacore SoCs they use seem dated. Do you notice any slow-downs or sluggishness or just general bugginess?

It seems that so far only Asus Original charger can do QC on 3S 10 pad, other famous brands QC 3.0 chargers won't work at all, don't know why. I have tried Aukey, Dodocool, Tronsmart, all QC 3.0 certified chargers are not working on Asus 3S 10.

Yes you read me that Asus original charger can do QC, i plug the Asus charger on my Note4 and S7 Edge both will show fast charging. On the 3S 10 pad, It won't prompt "Fast Charging" like Samsung, it will just show a small "+" icon on the battery icon on top if QC is going on. My zenpad is Z500KL snapdragon chipset.

However it is not known which version of QC the Asus charger is applying, it could be QC 3.0 or QC 2.0 or 1.0 too since they are backward compatible.

LOL... i finally found another charger that will quick charge the Asus 3S 10 Z500KL.
Since earlier I tried Asus charger on Samsung phones and found out fast charging is working, I did the other way today round, and it worked! Samsung charger is an Adaptive Fast Charger, not Qualcomm Quick Charger as I know, how could it work...

Tried out 2 Aukey QC 3.0 chargers and they refused to work with Z500KL. I am really interested to know if any QC 3.0 certified charger will work with Asus 3S 10.

I have had the z500m since February, with countless hours searching on this issue. Nearest I can tell, nobody can get the z500m to (at least indicate) quick charging. Not the OEM charger. I've personally tried Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and S8+ adapters, Anker QC 3.0 Wall and Battery Pack chargers none of any have indicated the oh so sought after "+ sign" nor "quick charging" battery status that the guys on the z500kl have been able to get.

I've contacted Asus support, they claim my tablet needs to be serviced and request I send it in. Two weeks no tablet has me heavily procrastinating that path.

Anyone have the z500m that can share more?

Thanks!
