It was last month, when Motorola introduced its new Turbo Charger, which utilizes Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology to give boost to range Snapdragon-powered handsets. Now, Taiwanese giant HTC has launched a similar kind of quick charger, called the HTC Rapid Charger 2.0.
Apparently, it is quite similar to the Motorola Turbo Charger and, of course, will take advantage of the Quick Charge 2.0 technology found in the latest-generation Qualcomm-powered phones.
HTC says the 15W travel charger powers up certain HTC models 40% faster than standard chargers by using Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology.
Earlier this year, Qualcomm said that the quick charging tech will charge compatible devices up to 75 % faster than non-Quick Charge chargers.
The HTC Rapid Charger 2.0 is compatible with any micro USB-based handset, but will work with select HTC-made devices, which include the HTC One (M8), HTC One (E8), HTC One remix and HTC Desire Eye.
As of now, HTC has yet to officially announce the retail price of the Rapid Charger 2.0. In the U.S, Motorola's Turbo Charger is priced at $35 or Rs. 2,135, so expect the HTC Raid Charger 2.0 should cost around the same price range.
