faster charging for phones connected via pc

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The title is exactly what I'm wanting to ask. I have an android phone capable of fast charging, but that doesn't seem to work when connected via my pc. Yes it's plugged into the usb 3.0 before anyone asks. I also have a usb 3.1 slot, but that does nothing either. Is there some kind of special connector I'm missing or something?

I have a Samsung S8+ and as for charging off the motherboard, it is what it is.  All you can do is make sure that things like the BIOS are up to date but that won't have any effect either.  Here is the current information concerning voltage levels for USB.


In the USB 1.0 and 2.0 specs, a standard downstream port is capable of delivering up to 500mA (0.5A); with USB 3.0, it moves up to 900mA (0.9A). The charging downstream and dedicated charging ports provide up to 1,500mA (1.5A).


.....  Info provided by: https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS765US765&ei=HGgnWpmCIKWpggfIg6uYBw&q=usb+2+voltage+output&oq=usb+2+vol&gs_l=psy-ab.1.1.0l3j0i22i30k1l7.241861.248056.0.254935.


The USB ports on your motherboard were more designed for things like syncing your device (phone, tablet, etc.) than they were meant for charging.  If you want a good and fast charge, use the power supply that came with the phone and plug it in to the wall outlet.

Only some special USB ports support fast charging.

My sound system uses more power than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

If you want faster charging AND have it connected to your pc so you can drag files or whatever, you're going to need a powered USB 3.0 dock that will supply the power for fast charging.

U must have the certified fast charging port and some even requires u to download apps like msi quick charge to use that feature.
