Moto Z Force - Quick Charge 3.0?

Does the Moto Z Force support QC 3.0? If not, when will it get support?

It doesn't.  I doubt that it can be added later since QC 3 requires specific circuitry.  However, QC technology is backwards compatible.

 

Please note that both QC 3 and QC 2 both support a max power of 18W, and QualComm isn't saying that QC 3 is faster, just that it's more efficient in its delivery.

Re: Moto Z Force - Quick Charge 3.0?

Is that the definitive answer? 

The problem I'm seeing is that the Moto turbo charger is basically the same thing as QC3.0. 

 

QC3.0 supports the processor and that's the biggest prerequisite. There is no reason why the Z shouldn't support QC. 

 

I bought a ton of QC chargers for the Nexus 6, so I'm really rooting for the Z to support that tech.

Moto Z uses TurboPower a Motorola technology which supports the standard for Type C USB. USB-C does not support QC charging, but TurboPower delivers high charging rates via USB-C. Using the provided charger, Moto Z Droid can receive eight hours of charge in 15 minutes; Moto Z Droid Force can receive five hours charge in just five minutes.

 

You can use QC chargers with the Moto Z Droids but for optimal charging speed the Motorola supplied inbox charger will provide the fastest charging times.

Will more turbo power accessories be released soon? Does the Moto Z force work well with the older turbo power accessories?

Do you mean chargers when you say accessories? Not sure I undestand.

Yes. Car and wall chargers.

 

Will new ones be coming out?

I don't have any QC 3.0 chargers but I have several QC 2.0 I used with the Droid Turbo.

 

I tested QC 2.0 with this phone and it doesn't work any better than a regular USB charger.  The current/voltage delivery is the same.

 

That being said, the charger that comes with the Moto Z is amazing.  It charges significantly faster than my Droid Turbo did with QC 2.0.

 

I'm eagerly awating 3rd party chargers from Anker or Aukey that work as well as the OEM one.

Verizon has this one and it's branded Motorola, but it appears to be backordered.
