Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 is the answer to busy smartphone users' prayers. The unbelievably rapid charging technology can take a phone from 0 to 80% battery in just 35 minutes.

Most Android phones already come equipped with the magic of Qualcomm Quick Charge but the next generation of charging technology -- Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 -- will be able to charge at never-before-seen speed. The technology will be integrated into Qualcomm's 2016 processors which will most likely make their way into next year's range of smartphones.

The chip-making giant says that Qualcomm Quick Charge will also be gentler on batteries in the long run, meaning that the eventual wear-down from a full day of battery life to needing to charge every two hours will be a much slower decline.
