Ultra-fast charging systems allow you to top up your devices in minutes. But are they worth your money? And which charger should you buy? Here’s our look at the options.

  • What is the fastest charging system? Huawei Super Charge offers the fastest uptake of power at 46.57mAh/min.
  • Which is faster to charge: Samsung or Apple? Samsung is the winner here. In fact, iPhones are surprisingly slow.
  • Does fast charging reduce battery life? Perhaps, although temperature is more of a problem. Try to avoid leaving your charging phone in sunlight.

Today’s mobile devices are more power-hungry than any previous generation. Thankfully, they are also greedy. Instead of taking all day over their meal, they gulp down electricity at a remarkable rate. This increased pace comes courtesy of ultra-fast charging systems.

If you have a need for speed, here are the fast chargers that are worth your money.
