    Does anyone know if the 1520 supports this? I know the snapdragon 800 does ......

    I believe so. I know the phone charges in about 2 hours or less, even with a large battery.

    I agree with Morpheus, I would like your thoughts on battery life for the 1520, as I'm currently discharging at approx 4.7% per hour... Would this seem correct with you guys?

    If you're using the phone fairly often during the day, yes. Heavy usage can jump up to 9-10%. Idle should drop down to about 1% or lower.

    At least that's what I have recorded for my battery data. :)

    same here.

    Anyway the reason I asked this is because I was reading about the new HTC one and it talked about supporting the new quick charge 2.0 from Qualcomm but you have to buy a compatible charger as the one that comes boxed with the phone is only quick charge 1.0

    Upon further searching I was reading that these 2.0 chargers are not suppose to be in market till 2014.

    Seeing as our beloved 1520s were out in 2013 it made me wonder about our 1.5A chargers that came with our phones.

    This link

    http://www.nokia.com/global/products/accessory/ac-60/

    Talks about the performance of 1.5A vs 1.3A (like what came with the 920) bit has no mention of Qualcomm's quick charge 2.0

    Curious to purchase one of these HTC chargers when they come out if it will infact charge faster than our current charger will as it is stated you have to have a compatible charger to take advantage of the feature.


    Sorry if I rambled , in a hurry to type this so I can leave for home lol

    My Lumia 1520 discharges at around 1.5% per hour on average. And charging time is fairly quick as well (around 3 hours)

    I got my 1520 last Thursday and I have only charged it once so far but I only have 4 things updating in the background.

    I average 3.1% with normal usage. My wife uses hers less, and she gets more like 2.5% per hour.

    Quick Charge isn't supported by Windows Phone yet, but it's coming with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 next week (dev preview).

    Nope. As far as I know you need 8.1 Update.

    So with the bevy of new quick charge 2.0 equipment, if I'm running 8.1 DP on my 1520, is it worth buying a 2.0 certified car charger? Will it work as quick charging is supposed to?

    I use my Note4 charger with my 1520 all the time and it charges so fast... like my note4.
    I prefer it over the OG charger.

    I've not noticed a huge difference between the certified charger and regular chargers on my 1520 with the 8.1 DP. I'm guessing Denim will include the necessary driver tweaks for it to work. My Moto G (first Gen) does charge faster. For a certified charger, I recommend one released by pure.gear. They released one for the home and the car. The difference, also, is not in the amps pushed through the charger, but rather the voltage. Standard chargers push 5V whereas Quick Charge 2.0 chargers push 9V.

    Ha anyone got a quick charger and have tested this out?

    I have a Tenergy charger with LED color differentiation if a Quick Charge 2.0-compatible device ramps up to a higher voltage. With my Icon (pre-denim obviously), I see no difference in charge time to a regular 2A charger, and the LED doesn't change color.

    Damn I would like to test a quick charger. Seems a risky buy though, might not be supported. I have 1520 with Denim.

    I can honestly say I do not believe it is risky. The only way a Quick Charge 2.0 enabled charger will actually ramp up to higher voltage and adjust the amperage is if the device "communicates" with the charger that is it QC2.0 compatible, otherwise the charger will stay in 5V mode w/ a max of 2amps. Make sense? The nice thing about the Tenergy charger I bought is that there is a visual indication of what mode it is in so I know for sure if QC2.0 is active in the phone or not.

    No, but risky to PAY for a charger that isnt anything more than what ve already got.

    I use my Note 4's turbo charger all the time and the difference between using the OG charger which was supplied with my 1520 and my Note4 charger is night and day

    I have a nexus 6 and I use the turbo charger on my 1520 and it does charge quicker then the Nokia OEM charger, but I think quick charge 1.0 was activated on w8.1,doesn't charge as quick as my nexus 6.
