Before talking about the best fast chargers in India, let us understand what fast charging is and how it is beneficial. Although many people talk about fast charging, they don’t know which charger is the best for their smartphone or tablet because there are a lot of standards out there and the whole thing is pretty confusing.
What is Fast Charging?
Almost all modern smartphones and tablets have a fast charging feature, which allows the battery to get charged faster compared to the usual charging speed (usually 5W or 10W). Anything above 10W can be termed as fast charging, but in our view, fast charging should be at least 15W for smartphones and tablets. Even laptops and wireless earphones have some sort of fast charging these days.
Fast charging is quite useful in situations where you have to head outside of your home or office and your smartphone battery is critically low. In such situations, you can charge your smartphone (or any other compatible device) for a few minutes and have enough battery to last a few hours. However, not all devices use the same fast charging technology, so choosing the right fast charger for your smartphone or tablet might be a bit harder than it seems.
