safe to charge zmax pro with smart charger 3.0? and will it make a difference?
The main benefit is diminished overheating... on phones that aren't 3.0(or 2.0).
Sorry for being so brief, had to sneak that reply in.
It seems like Zmax 'debatedly' is 1.0
Even though speed gain is negligible from 2 to 3, the latter is 'adjustable smart charging @ more varying rates'...
Ego less power leakage = less heat = longer lasting & more efficient battery & phone.
It's probably safer to use than what came with the phone!
I'm gonna try it with portable power packs and tablets - they all either take too long to charge, or adapters overheat excessively.
Didn't think price premium was worth it, but the last special was too good to pass up.
Some reviewers commented sales price has been even lower before... $5.
Don't know how i missed that.
I think with the one that came with phone takes2 hours. if I can get it down to 90 minutes id be happy
I just received my Aukey. MAYBE even 75-80 minutes... this a guess though.
BTW not obligatory to use the included cable(with micro2c adapter), as the original zte cable performs just as well.
got mine around 10 am gota love sunday delivery
Yep, especially from USPS.
They in turn gotta thank Amazon for erasing some of their red ink.
I'm curious what results you get from 0 to 100.
like 1 minute per number if that makes sence I feel a sleep b4 it was done
The original ZMAX PRO adapter charges the phone at 1% per MINUTE. That means it takes 100 MINUTES (1 hour and 40 minutes) to charge from 0% to 100%.
Did you try this from 0 to 100?
I'm not challenging you, BTW.
I'm happy with the charger for 9 bucks it was well worth it. and man o man this phone is so good
Yes, I did. The charge from the original charger charges at about 1% per minute. A full charge from 0% to 100% (without using the phone while charging) confirmed it. It took 1 hour and 40 minutes. Also, you can plug the phone in at any time and test it for yourself, it's always 1% per minute on the original charger. So, anyone testing other chargers should use THAT as their guide to see if a different charger is getting better results.
only at 80 percent after 100 minutes on new 3.0 charger
You know why I asked?
I thought it charged faster at the lower %'s, then slower the more the battery was full.
I never get the chance to monitor this for too long.
And I just realized I could be mixing up the numbers with the Stylo.
I was able to check during a break:
From 29 to 59% in 31 minutes.
135 minutes 98 percent
If this is with no direct use, then it's the stark reality of how apps update, sync, phone home, run in the background... how all Location & Google apps use BT/NFC/Wifi even when set Off.
And if the network signal is weak, forget about it.
I'll never really find out - I'm always on the move, often underground.
And when able to sit still I tether / cast other stuff to it... often can't access a power outlet.
Then when home sleep & everyone distracts / calls...
So by force charging speed doesn't really matter - being anal about plugging in spurts during the day / completely overnight.
To the point that the backup power block hardly ever is needed - maybe once a week.
