    I was always impressed by Passports ability to quickly recover charge, compared to any other phone I'd used previously.

    While I was reviewing the Qualcomm 801, I immediately spied that it has Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology. But I'd never heard it mentioned before!?

    I've double checked BB's Passport spec page and there's nothing written about it!

    The first I'd ever heard of QC QC was when I bought a used Nexus 6 and was impressed with it's charge up speed.

    The 801 SoC may support QC 2.0, but the Passport doesn't have the hardware to do so.

    It's built into the Qualcomm 801. http://www.androidauthority.com/quic...lained-563838/

    If you have the amp output on your charger adapter it will work.

    And can you plug the micro USB cable into the 801 chip? No. You need the other pieces of hardware from the USB port through a regulator/adapter to the battery. The Passport does not have these.

    My old PlayBook USB charger does the job pretty quickly. I don't know how much Quick Charge 2.0 gives you but I can get about 50% in 25 mins. That's good enough for me for now.

    That answers why whenever I'm using Samsung s7's it charges quicker. 😎 😎

    I believe the At&t version does have wireless charging.

    I'd forgotten about that — I believe you're correct. But it still doesn't have QC 2.0 capability.

    So I'm charging my Passport with the Playbook charger, and my Q10 with the Pre3 charger... sigh. Roots through box of dead-end tech for more accessories. :P

    It looked as if the article was saying hardware as in the correct USB and correct output charger. Do u know of a site that details exactly what the 'hardware' is?

    No, no specific site. It would probably require finding a tear down of a device with the same or similar chip. But your original question has been addressed, which is the main thing.

    I've got a Motorola Turbo Charger (Motorola Turbo Charger ssw-2680cn ssw-2680us Quick Charge 2.0 qc2.0 power supply) which is also good for QCQC, I'm running my Passport OG Black battery down all day and tonight I'll plug it in and record results.

    It doesn't support quick charge. Sorry. A high amperage charger can charge it a bit faster though I think

    Yeah, ur right, but it does charge much faster than phones I've had in the past, even with it's huge battery. 42% increase after 60 minutes not too shabby. Makes u wonder why a feature isn't used, when it's already on the chip? Is acting like QC1.0!

    I'd say it is acting like QC1.0,
    "To put the technology in perspective, Qualcomm quotes a laboratory test that they've carried out where within a 30-minute charging window a smartphone with a 3300mAh battery would charge the following:

    from 0% to 60% with Quick Charge 2.0 (9 volt/1.67 amp)
    from 0 to 30% with Quick Charge 1.0 (5 volt/2 amp)
    from 0% to 12% with a conventional charger (5 volt/1 amp)"

    I can confirm quick charge doesn't work. I have a dual port quick charger and have had my passport and my kid brothers moto g4 plus side by side charging and his charges much faster than mine. However, it does charge faster on that charger then the factory blackberry charger.
