I tested this with a Samsung galaxy note 2, note 4, and S5. In each case, this charger charged just as quickly as the stock charger. I measured the charge rate for the Note 5 at 7.5V, 1.66Amps, which is the exact charge rate achieved by the stock Adaptive Fast Charger that shipped with the phone. The charger lets you know when it's in fast charging mode by turning the light green.
I cannot overemphasize the importance of using a GOOD USB cable with a good (not worn) connector. Even with a standard '2.1A' charger this is critical -- too-thin wire and/or worn connects add electrical resistance to the connection, and the charging circuit in the phone will reduce the charging current to compensate. I wish that Anker included a USB cable with the charger because of this, because I'm afraid that a lot of people will use the old crappy cables that they have laying around, and then be disappointed when they get slower charging speeds; I have taken off one star because a USB cable is basically an expectation when purchasing a charger. Other than the lack of an included USB cable, this charger is wonderful.
Also note that many devices reduce their charging rate while the screen is on to help with thermal management. For instance, both the Note 4 and S5 dramatically reduce their charging rate (down to ~1.1-1.2A) while the screen is on.Read more ›
I'm not a total tech guy, so take this for what it's worth. I tried out a few chargers using the Ampere app, starting with about a 20% charge on the phone, with the following results:
Anker PowerPort+ 1, about 1570mA @ 3.97V
Samsung Travel Adapter (#EP-TA50JWE), about 1440mA @ 3.96v
Anker PowerPort 5 (40W 5-Port USB Charging Hub), about 1370mA @ 3.96V
HTC AC Adapter (#TCU250), about 880mA @ 3.86V
So the Anker PowerPort +1 did it's thing, no problems to report. However, I didn't see a huge jump in the charger output. I realize that the phone will regulate the maximum charge rate it can handle, but there wasn't a marked change in the charge rate with the between the first three chargers. The downside to the PowerPort + 1 is that it's a bit larger than some of the other chargers and it only has a single charging port.
Perhaps I'll pick another Qualcomm 2.0 compatible phone to try out at a later time and update if needed. For the meantime, I'm thinking that a similar dual-port Anker charger with IQ will work just as good for my needs.
Photos compare the PowerPort+ 1 to the Samsung chargers.

In my first try with my HTC one M8, I used a micro usb cable from a car charger. The light on the charger turned green but my phone only charged as fast as the "Power IQ" charge method. But there was no indication if it was in quickcharge or not. Frankly I thought quick charge might have be over hyped. The phone did not even get warm. Warmth is a sign of the device being quick charged
I decided to try charging again with the usb cable that came with my phone. The result was far better. The phone went from 5 % to 60% within 30 mins and the phone got fairly warm.
Moral of the story: Use the right cable to get the maximum benefit
Unfortunately, I did find that this charger is not bedroom friendly, in that the LED indicator is way too bright, and it lights up the room too much. (I am the type of person who needs a pitch black bedroom to sleep.) I wish Anker either had a way of turning down the brightness, or turning the LED off completely. Given that is not the case now, I have resorted to using some black electrical tape to cover all but the tiniest corner of the LED (the size of a pin hole) so I could see the color of the LED, but not have it lighting up the room too much.
Note: I would have taken only 1/2 star off if Amazon gave us the ability to have 1/2 star increments, but unfortunately, I had to take a full star off.
I would recommend this charger to anyone, with the one caveat I have mentioned. Anker has again put out a good product; but this time, there can be improvements made.
