To power up, you consume Red Bull. But your phone just needs its adaptive fast charger. Rate this thread to express how quickly the LG G5 can charge. A higher rating indicates that it charges extremely fast.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

Great Charging
This is the first phone I have had that would actually increase the charge significantly while navigating using google maps in the daylight. And it increases pretty fast.

My Anker QuickCharge 3.0 charger got my G5 from 0 to 100% in ~75 minutes while on. The same charger port got my spare battery in the cradle fro 0 to 100% in ~3 hours (it only pulled 5V).

After lunch today, I plugged it into a USB 3.0 port on my Lenovo T430, and it got from 60 to 100% in under 30 minutes while pulling over 1.2 amps (way above spec).

I'm happily impressed!

That's simply not possible unless you are using a non QC 3.0 charger or bad lead.

This thread is about charging speed, not battery life.

I'm loving the charging speed. It's like night and day compared to the M9 I used to own.

Doesn't seem much faster than speed charge 2.0 at all to me

Remember the G4 had a bigger battery so its only obvious the G4 last longer. But luckily we can buy multiple extra batteries

As has been discussed elsewhere, QC 3.0 doesn't boost speed much if at all over 2.0. Instead it provides a continuous range of charging voltages (or amps? or whatever) so that it can charge at just the right rate. This should heat the battery less and (in theory, no idea how true/noticeable this will be after a year of use) wear down the battery less because of it.
