Qualcomm Confirms Fast Charge Your Phone Over USB-C

Yes, it can be done … Fast-Charging your smartphone using USB-C. And no, it would over-heat or burst into flames. The HTC 10 and the LG G5, both have USB-C connectors and so it should be an issue. You can all rest in peace 😉


“Technically, USB-C and fast-charging methods like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 aren’t supposed to mix. As Google’s Benson Leung (a frequent crusader for good USB implementations) noted last fall, the USB-C spec explicitly forbids the variable voltage tricks that QC3.0 and others use to top up your battery in a hurry. Does that mean that your HTC 10 or LG G5 is at risk of catching fire, then? Not if you ask Qualcomm. It tells Android Central that you can make its fast-charge solution fit USB-C’s voltage demands, and there have been “no reports” of problems so far.”
