If you thought Qualcomm's 40 percent faster charging time in Quick Charge 1.0 was impressive, wait till you see Quick Charge 2.0. The processor manufacturer today took the wraps off the second-generation of Quick Charge, which will power up smartphones and tablets up to 75 percent faster than devices that don't have Quick Charge 2.0.
Quick Charge 2.0 is a combined effort of on-device technology (it's either a standalone integrated circuit solution, or built into the power management in the Snapdragon 800 system on a chip), along with the Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger. Qualcomm says that new tech will fit into existing wall charger footprints, so they'll look the same as what's currently available but provide up to 60 watts of power. Quick Charge 2.0 wall chargers aren't expected to be avialable before 2014, however.
