Charging Up the Samsung Note Edge

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge was one of the first phones with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset offering a ton of improvements and massive speed.  One of the nicer features for the rest of us is Quick Charge 2.0.  Quick Charge 2.0 offers communication between the phone, battery and charger brick to increase the voltage that the charger brick delivers to the phone.  Higher voltage means a faster charging rate.  Take a look at this graphic from Qualcomm illustrating a 30 minute charge:

With Quick Charge 2.0 you can get nearly a full charge in less than an hour - even 15 minutes of charging will get you several hours of usable battery out of the Note 4!
