The BlackBerry Priv is a decidedly premium affair, with top-end specs, a beautiful sliding keyboard design and the latest version of Android on board. However, the charger you get with the phone is suprisingly low-grade. By upgrading to a third-party Quick Charge 2.0 charger, you can charge the giant 3410mAh battery much faster. We show you how to do it in the video guide embedded below!
With our daily lives becoming more and more reliant on our smartphones for near enough every task, the drain on its battery increases greatly. So it’s important to be able to recharge your phone as quickly as possible. The Blackberry Priv comes boxed with a 1.3A charger. That’s perfectly fine for charging overnight but when the phone comes complete with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 capabilities, why wouldn’t you want to charge as quickly as possible?
The basic idea is that the charger that comes with the Priv only charges at 1.3A and 5V. If you swap it for a charger capable of 12V / 3A charging with Quick Charge 2.0 tech on board, you’ll get dramatically faster charging that can give you more than 50% battery in just 30 minutes of charging – and that makes a big difference if you only have a brief period to recharge between meetings or other engagements. You can find out more about the Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 standard right here.
