Just got the 4GB model ... No adapter here either. Although, I think I know the reason because I bought mine from Singapore instead of Taiwan. It also arrived without earphones ... Plus it has the 1.8GHz CPU instead of the 2.3GHz.

I am going to be returning this version once the Taiwanese version arrives. Hopefully that one will include the adapter. I'll keep you posted.

Remind me if I forget to update my post in a week.

This phone uses Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 so any Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 car or wall charger on Amazon will work with this device!

Here is a quick listing of them on Amazon:

I personally purchased this card charger and can confirm the QC 2.0 port quickly charges my ZE551ML with 4GB of Ram and the Z3580 Atom chip.

Hey, where did you buy your ZF2?

Are you from the US?

Just to clarify, Singapore does not even have the 4GB model yet. And as far as I know, the 4GB and Z3560 model is only sold in Taiwan/China.
I bought the ZE550ML locally, and even that comes with the earphones. Which website did you buy your Zenfone from?

Singapore does carry 4GB Model during its Launch Ceremony on 14th Feb 2015 but limited set (Silver Only) and cost SGD $499 (64GB) SGD $429 (32GB), i ordered the 2GB variants as the price to performance ratio is bang for the bucks

My Zenfone 2 ZE551ML SG Set 2GB Version doesn't comes with Quick Charger. I tried using my sister Note 4 Quick Charge Adapter, i can say that it works like a charm, Not as advertised 0-60 in 39 mins but the result was close:

Charger Specification
Note 4 Adaptive Fast Charge
DC - 9Volt/1.67A
DC - 5Volt/2.0A

(Im Yet to find a charger that is (9Volt/2A) in Singapore)

Time %
==================
8.08pm 4
8.23pm 38
8.38pm 55
8.53pm 75
9.08pm 84
9.23pm 97
9.32pm 100

My Observation

During the fast charge i noticed that @ 55% , my temperature was 39.3 degree @ 7.71 Volt. When it passes 60% mark, it start to charge slowly @ 75% mark, my temperature was @ 37.1 Degree @ 5.12 Volt, Approaching full charge, my temperature was @ 35.5 Degree 4.218 Volt.

Indeed the Fast Charge Works +1

Conclusion

Nevertheless which quick charger you use, there will be a significant damage done to the battery for prolong use as it allows more current into your battery causing your battery to heat up and temperature is the worst enemy in any electronic devices. Since Zenfone 2 has a built in battery, its unlike other flagship phone that has a removable battery, Fast Charger for this phone is a double edge sword.

My recommendation is to stick to a Fast Charge 1.0 charger or simply use the 5V/2A charger.

Ah yes, I forgot about the launch event. However, it would be highly unlikely and very troublesome if he ordered a device from overseas by getting someone who was invited to the event to purchase one for him.

It is a Chinese version, it just shipped from Singapore. I bought it from GearBest.

I bought the Taiwanese version from eBay. I read somewhere that it also excludes the charger. I bought a Qualcomm Quickcharge compatible charger from Amazon, those work with all ZF2's.

Hi, I bought the 64 GB 4GB version from Taiwan which had the adapter BUT how do I know whether its the boostmaster enabled adapter? It doesn't say 18W though it says 9V!
