These are the Android devices that support Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0

But already we've got a number of Android smartphones and even a couple tablets that support the new technology. This is going to be a big deal in 2015, especially as there are so many phones that don't have removable batteries. And it's an even bigger deal in the car, as a 20-minute drive can mean you get a lot more juice in the same amount of time.

And the list of phones that support Qualcomm's Quick Charge standard are growing. A number of devices released in 2014 already support it, and we'll see even more as new devices are released in 2015.

Note: Based on our time with a Korean LG G Flex 2, that device appears to charge quickly with other QC chargers, in addition to LG's branded "Fast Charger." But to date no LG phones are on Qualcomm's official listings.
