    We need a "super hyper mega fast charger"......:D

    I'm sure as technology evolves charging devices will get faster and faster in the future too, I just remember reading about cell phone chargers who can charge a battery in around 30 seconds. This would be a very nice charger indeed.

    There is an instant 'charger' aka spare battery :)
    One of the reason why I like Samsung phones.
    Nokia used to do swappable battery phones but the smart phones are now geared towards build in batteries.
    But that's just me :D

    Okay, so lots of of marketing hyperbole and... nothing else. The thing is as fast as Mophie (and numerous other chargers out there), leaving just the form factor as the actual selling point.

    Beyond a certain point (~2A-2.4A for most phones, Oppo's latest offering being an outlier), this "super-duper-mega-chargie-thingie" does nothing. The phone, or tablet, will limit themselves to a pre-determined current and that's that. You can plug the phone into a nuclear reactor and it won't take any more current.
