Nexus 5x Fast Charge: The All Information You Should Know

There are many kinds of topic discussion about the Nexus 5X. Now we will discuss the Nexus 5X fast charge. The smartphone has a support fast charging, but it does not use the standard Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 (or even the newer 3.0). The Nexus 5X support rapid or fast charging via USB Type-C. This also will capable of grabbing hours and hours of juice in just a few minutes of being plugged in. It has equipped with (in the box) a 5V/3A charger which you won’t find in many other places (for now). We knew that the most chargers come in around 2.1A or 2.4A at the highest. The rapid charging on the 5X probably will not be easy without the original charging brick. This is mean all of the current QC 2.0 chargers that you have, basically going to be useless (at least in a fast charging).

Thanks for a great work from Droid Life, they have tested the Quick Charge 2.0 chargers. They also found pretty hit and miss for a couple did register as (charging rapidly) on the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. For now, the Google’s first party accessories (which are as of now sold out) will have to do this job. Hopefully, there will be third-party accessories available for Nexus 5X in the near future. According to the Droid Life, Google has remained mostly silent on the charging topic. Thus, they really had nothing to go on, at least until they could test by themselves. Finally, now, they (Droid Life) have done some preliminary testing for the Nexus 5X fast charge.

According to the Google’s claims, that each phone (include Nexus 5X) would charge quickly via USB Type-C. Droid Life says that many of you noticed that nowhere on any of their product pages do they mention the Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0. Since each phone (Nexus 5X and 6P) come with aa Qualcomm processor that certainly could support Quick Charge 2.0 (that was a bit confusing). They were including a charger with an odd 5V/3A output comes with the Nexus 5X that we have not really seen to date.

Here is the test result from Droid Life: (at this case, I eliminated the Nexus 6P because the topic is about the Nexus 5X charge)

#Samsung Fast Chargers (9V/1.67A):  Will charge Nexus 5X, but won’t rapid charge. (tested with a USB Type-C to USB A cable from Google).
#Motorola TurboPower 15 (5V/1.6A, 9V/1.6A, 12V/1.2A):  Will charge Nexus 5X, but won’t rapid charge either. (tested with a USB Type-C to USB A cable from Google).
#Motorola TurboPower 25 (5V/2.85A, 9V/2.85A, 12V/2.15A):  Won’t charge 5X at all. (The MicroUSB tip can not be removed, thus, Droid Life tested with a USB Type-C adapter).
#Aukey QC 2.0 Powerbank (5V/2.1A):  Will charge Nexus 5X, but won’t rapid charge either.
* #OnePlus Adapter (5V/2A):  Registers as (charging rapidly) on the Nexus 6P. But, could not test on Nexus 5X.
* #Tronsmart Type-C car charger (5V/2.4A):  Registers as (charging rapidly) on the Nexus 5X.

According to the Droid Life test result on Nexus 5X fast charge, there are no one of these chargers has 5V/3A output. Thus, the results here are not all that surprising. It is a bit odd that those last two chargers are registering as (charging rapidly) on the phones. Droid Life does not have tools that would test the actual output. Through each of the Nexus phones, they assumed that it is not the full wattage that you would get when charging with the official 5X adapters (or Nexus 6P). You probably won’t see the full (3.8 hours of use in 10 minutes of charging) on the Nexus 5X.

Then, if you want fast charging, you are sort of stuck buying Google’s official 5V/3A (15W) USB Type-C chargers from Google Play (which of course they are sold out). The problem is, Google is not even selling a car charge of any type. The Tronsmart car charger above does registers as “charging rapidly” so that could be a good option now (until someone makes the real 5V/3A charger).

Well, that is all about the first test result from the Droid Life. There is also an updated, then you might be better to directly see the update from the Droid Life. Then, let’s go for the final conclusion.

This is the general conclusions from the Droid Life:

First, LG official 5V/3A USB Type-C charger that comes with the Nexus 5X pushes the most current (should charge the Nexus 5X better). Second, the Tronsmart car charger almost equal it in terms of output. Droid Life also recommends to stock up on the Google’s official chargers if you can, or you can make due with the chargers you have lying around your house, even the QC 2.0 chargers (because they will still charge your Nexus 5X).

Well, that is all about the Nexus 5X fast charge. Have you ever tested this by yourself? Please let us know your experiences about the Nexus 5X charge. Thank you.
