    The 1520 should have Quick Charge 2.0 after the 8.1 Update 1, since it has the Snapdragon 800 processor.

    So, what charger can we use that will provide the 9V/2A needed for Quick Charge 2.0?

    Hopefully this isn't a "feature" with no eligable devices to use it!

    Your chargers have 9V or 5V? Normal chargers are 5V. 9V is not normal for USB-style chargers.

    Didn't know you needed a special charger. I thought the feature finally enabled and worked with the OEM charger. My 1520 definitely charges faster after update 1.

    I am glad I came across this post because since the update my phone will charge so quickly I thought it was broken. I charged it today from 50% to 100% in just over an hour. It is remarkable..... however, hopefully I can get the battery life back to pre update and the discharge rates back down to 1% from where it is now at 3%.

    I heard somewhere that feature isn't HW dependable? Meaning it works with every phone with update 1.

    no its hardware based

    "Quick Charge 2.0 is available in many devices powered by the latest Snapdragon 800 series, 600 series and 400 series processors."

    There are many devices that use this feature but just because you have a Snapdragon 800 doesn't mean it's guaranteed that you will get quick charge.

    It also depends on what chips Nokia used for battery management and charging.

    My Nexus 5 sports a newer Snapdragon 800 than the 1520 but has no quick charge because LG used a battery management chip that doesn't support quick charge.

    If Nokia/Microsoft have not confirmed Quick Charge, there is probably no chance the 1520/930/Icon will get it.

    So I read that Quick Charge 2.0 uses 9V to accelerate the charging process. The OEM charger is only 5V @ 1.5A?

    I think whatever anyone is seeing with regards to faster charge times is not related to Quick Charge 2.0.

    Here is a good site, with product links to chargers that are Quick Charge 2.0 capable.

    Microsoft reveals Update 1 for Windows Phone 8.1, due next week for Preview users | Windows Phone Central

    I've been using it on my 1520 with 9V/2 amp charger. It's for Qualcomm 400, 600 and 800 series, so that would be the 3 phone models I listed, namely: 1520,930 and Icon. Not sure if any other Lumias have the other CPUs listed. I suspect they would also need the supporting chipsets.
