Thanks for the reply!

 

Unfortunately, I am out of shipping zone of amazon. I need to check local retainers in my country.

 

I have got Asus Zenpower powerbank which has 2.4 output, as well as LG charger with 1.5 output. Both should be ok then?

 

I was cruious too see how turbo charging works. I'll keep searching for a suitable charger.

 

Thanks for the help.


Turbocharging on the Moto phones with MicroUSB is Qualcomm Quick Charge - visit the Qualcomm page for more, but the voltage varies as does the amps... the phone and charger talk to each other. 

 

Your Powerbank should be fine and both outputs will work - the 1.5 may be faster then the 2.4 if the 2.4 port is variable and more geared towards apple. It may do less Amps with non-Apple devices.  But either should be fine. 

 

The USB-C Moto TurboChargers (Moto Z) do not use Qualcomm Quickcharge, so don't buy one of those if you find one.

Dear Sir, my new moto g4 plus charges very slow. It takes 6 hours to get fully charged. Do I need to switch off my moto g4 plus and then connect to charger, for turbo charging?

I have just bought a g4 , the charging is very slow, I'd say Motorola deliberately made the charging slow , obviously , to flog a "turbo" charger. 

 

Fraud basically , the amount of current to charge a phone is almost zero, I got a charger with the phone , and it's poor .

 

Like Apple conning customers into buying chargers (a bit of wire and transformer , what £5- £6 worth ) you pay £60 for Apple junk , a bit of wire , with chips in it to stop you buying , honest products. 

 

So it is with Motorola , £130 phone , ? The difference between a  turbo charger plug/bit of wire and a unturbo charger , is the slow charger is deliberately made slow to extort more money . 

 

This kind of scam , really annoys me, like a fool I bought Motorola because , apple , besides being not very good , scam like Motorola too.

 

Turbo boost? I use an electric lawn mower of same plug as phone , now tell me ? Does a lawn mower use more or less current than a phone ? Yes more , considerably more

 

Why don't I need to buy a "turbo"plug for lawn mower ? Lawn mowers aren't a scam

My moto g4 used to have Turbo Charging, then something happened.  I don't know what.  Now the same charger(s) are now a SLOW chargers for some reason. Is there a setting in my options I need to select or unselect?  This just came on recently, no more Turbo Charging.

There is no setting to change. Try the standard troubleshooting options if you are sure the charger is working properly:

 

Here are some great troubleshooting videos that cover safe mode, cache clear, and factory reset. Try these suggestions and let us know

If you did a factory data reset and tested BEFORE installing or restoring ANY apps, and problem persists, then service/repair/replace is next step.
