Despite the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900V) CPU (Qualcomm Snapdragon 801) being listed as Quick Charge 2.0 capable on Qualcomm’s site and claims to that effect on various blogs, the phone doesn’t support the charging standard in testing.
Here’s what I tested my S5 with:
- Tenergy Turbo USB Universal Charger with Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0 technology
- Samsung USB 3.0 charge/data cable that shipped with my S5
- Regular USB 2.0 charge/data cable
- USB 2.0 charge only cable
No combination of the above worked. I’ve reached out to Samsung Support about when this might change, but got this rather unhelpful reply:
I’ve also started a Verizon support question thread.
In the mean time, I’ll be RMAing the Tenergy. It cost $20.39 and slow charges the S5 on long USB cables, while the OEM charger costs as little as $7.49 without the same drawback. That’s a no-brainer.
