Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 Fast Charging Support

Does Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 support Fast Charging is a question running around. Well, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a bang-for-bucks device with Snapdragon 660, Stock Android and 5000mAh battery. But can the massive battery be charged quickly is the question.

While the phone’s description says that the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is backup by a fast charger, it is worth noticing that the output listed is 5V/2A which technically is not fast charging. 5V/2A which is 10W is said to be the normal charging speeds provided in most phones. A phone supporting Quick Charge must be able to charge at a rate of 9V/2A which equals 18W.

Although different Quick Chargers were used to test fast charging on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, it was found that the phone does not support fast charging. However with the stock charger, the phone charges around 60% in an hour, while it takes 2 more hours to reach 100%. This is done intentionally to improve battery life and also the lifespan of the battery.

Although fast charging was a much expected feature on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, it misses out but that is surely not a deal breaker when taken price into consideration. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a feature packed phone and definitely worth the price. However, the Snapdragon 636 powered Redmi Note 6 Pro supports Fast Charging but a better performance can be expected on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2.
