HTC Rapid Charger 2.0 listed on HTC's website - HTC Source
Do you remember when the HTC One M8 was announced and there was this intriguing specification about Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology on board? This tech paired with a certified charger can restore 60% to a 3300 mAh smartphone battery in just 30 minutes.
Earlier this month an inside source at HTC told us that the company was gearing up to release a branded charger with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology and the day is drawing closer as the HTC Rapid Charger 2.0 pops up on the accessories page at HTC.com. The item isn’t ready to be added to your shopping cart yet as we are told the first batch for the US is still in transit from Taiwan. For now, all you can do is visit the product page for a closer look.
Devices that will get the most use out of this charger are listed below:
- HTC One M8
- HTC One E8
- HTC One M8 Hardon/Kardon Edition
- HTC Desire Eye
Devices like the HTC One M7 that have Qualcomm Quick Charge 1.0 tech in them can benefit from the HTC Rapid Charger 2.0 as well, but it will be at a lesser speed given it is version one of quick charging technology by Qualcomm.
We hope the price will be very similar to what Motorola listed their Turbo charger for which is $34.99 and of no surprise is currently out of stock.
UPDATE: Amazon is now selling a Qualcomm certified Quick Charge 2.0 wall plug for $14.59. It not the official HTC plug, but it is compatible with all Quick Charge 2.0 compatible devices like the HTC One M9, HTC One M8, HTC One E8 and HTC Desire Eye
