How do I charge my Samsung Galaxy S6 fast?
Adaptive Fast Charging recharges your Galaxy S6 up to 50% in about 30 minutes.* *Based on laboratory testing. Results may vary. Battery power consumption depends on factors such as network configuration, wireless service provider, signal strength, operating temperature, features selected, vibrate mode, backlight settings, browser use, frequency of calls, and voice, data, and other applications' usage patterns.
• Adaptive Fast Charging is designed to specifically work with the charger that came with your device or the Adaptive Fast Charging Vehicle Charger, which can be purchased from Samsung.com.
• The Samsung Wireless Charging Pad and Samsung Wireless Charging Pad mini do not support Adaptive Fast Charging.
Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Use Adaptive Fast Charging
Adaptive Fast Charging works only with the charger that came with your Galaxy S6 or the Adaptive Fast Charging Vehicle Charger.
Plug the supplied USB connector into the power/accessory interface connector on the bottom of your device.
Plug the wall charger into an electrical outlet. It may be necessary to connect the USB cable to the charging head before you can plug it into an electrical outlet. Fully charging the battery can take just 100 minutes with Adaptive Fast Charging.*

To ensure your device is fast charging, open the Notification Panel by swiping from the top of the screen to the bottom.
Look for the Fast charging notification. A Fast charging message will also display when your device is turned off during fast charging.
• If the notification shows Cable charging, instead of Fast charging, the device is not using an Adaptive Fast Charging wall charger.
• Use the charging head that was included in the box with your device.
