How Long Does it Take to Charge Your Current Phone from 0% to 100%?

Battery life is one of the most important metrics when looking to upgrade to a new Smartphone. However, a lot of people overlook how fast the phone charges

Thanks to my job as a tech reviewer, I have come across different charge time metrics—devices that take less than 2 hours to charge and others that take close to 4 hours to charge from 0% to 100%.

I currently use the Galaxy S8 which takes about 1hour 30 minutes to charge thanks to the Adaptive fast charging tech. But it does take longer when the fast charge is turned off.

So, over to you. Can you estimate how long it takes to charge your current device (tell us the name of the device too) in the comment box?

    Misstechy jare, I use xiaomi redmi note 4 and it takes 2.40 hours to charge from 0-100%. Though I plug it when it dropped to 19% and will be fully charge in about 1.50 hours.
    I sent you a message yesterday though and you haven’t reply.

    So nice to see these many Xiaomi users. 🙂
    In my case, I’m hardly ever on my smartphone, but my laptop takes 45 minutes to go from 0 – 100 and still hold on for up to 8 hours (mixed usage) on a single charge.
    USB C is crazy good!

    My 4000mah redmi note 4x charge from 0 to 100 in roughly 3 hrs. Takes about 2 or 3 days to drain the battery. I got the chinese rom and have struggling to flash the global rom (English version) to it. Any suggestions house?

    My Infinix Zero 4 takes exactly 1hr 30mins to run from 0 to 100 percent…. And it lasts me like hell.. … Still in love with the phone…. Infinix should do and release zero 5 biko..

  13. Emerson says:

    I’ve never really measured but it takes a good part of 2 hours to go from 0-100 or more sometimes depending on the charger. I use a phone from Samsung that’s 6 years younger or older than MissTechy’s S8 depending on how you look at it.

  14. Emmanuel says:

    My Xperia Z3 takes more than 4hrs to go from 0-100. But whenever I use a new charger it’s charges faster. After some days, it will go back to its normal speed.

  15. Victor says:

    My Doogee X5max pro’s 4000mah battery takes 5 good hours!!!!! 😉😊😭
