htc-15-watt-travel-charger-slide-01You might recall that Motorola unveiled the Turbo Charger a while back. The charger, for those unfamiliar, basically allows users to charge their devices faster assuming that it has Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology on board. Well it looks like HTC has decided to hop on the bandwagon and has recently announced the HTC Rapid Charger 2.0.

It will work similar to the Motorola Turbo Charger and will take advantage of the Quick Charge 2.0 technology found in the latest Snapdragon handsets. According to HTC, the Rapid Charger 2.0 will be able to boost a smartphone’s battery by another 8 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes.

This is also apparently 40% faster than your regular charger, so if you need to charge your phone and you don’t have a lot of time to do so, then perhaps the Rapid Charger 2.0 might be an accessory worth considering. While the Rapid Charger 2.0 will play nice with devices using micro USB connectivity, as it stands devices such as the HTC One M8, HTC One E8, HTC One Remix, and the HTC Desire Eye will benefit from the rapid charging.

HTC has yet to officially announce the price of the Rapid Charger 2.0, but with Motorola’s Turbo Charger priced at $35, we expect that HTC’s Rapid Charger 2.0 should be priced around the same price point as well, hopefully.
