We all know that charging your iPhone, iPad or iPod via a USB port takes a long time to finish. Same goes with Android devices like Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. I tried charging our iPhone 5 and Note 2 on my PC’s USB 3.0 port and it still take some time to get full bars. But there is a solution on how can you quick charge or fast charge your i Devices and even some Android devices. Please continue reading below.
Before I show you the solution on how to quick charge an iPhone and other iDevices, let me tell you why I charge our phone via my PC’s USB ports. Basically we have limited 220v outlet in our room, and all of them are already used by the appliances in our room. But my PC has many USB ports, so why not charge our phone via the USB.
Second, I want to stay as close to my phone as possible while using the computer. And sometimes I tether my phones connection to my PC. So it’s only practical to charge them via the USB ports.
