The Complete Guide to Turning On Fast Charging on the New Samsung Note 5
Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy Note 5, is one of the best smartphones available on the market. It’s a powerful phone that has an equally potent battery life. One great feature of this smartphone is Fast Charging: it allows the phone to charge up to 50% in just 10 minutes, which is not only great because it means you can spend less time waiting around for your phone, but it’s also really useful if you’re in a hurry or have low battery life.
If you own a Samsung smartphone and want to know how fast your phone can charge up, skip this post, because I will show you how to turn on Fast Charging. (Note: this works for the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge and S7/S7 Edge.)
To turn on Fast Charging, you have to go into your phone’s settings. To do that, open up your phone dialer and input # *#0*# . (The * means the Search Key. You will have to restart your phone after entering this code.) You will see something that looks like this:
That should pop up the Samsung’d Settings app. It has several different settings in it, so navigate around until you find Fast Charging. The first time you turn on Fast Charging, it will take some time for your phone to finish charging. After that, every time you turn on Fast Charging, it won’t take as long for your phone to finish charging.
If you want to turn off Fast Charging, simply go back into the same settings and turn it off.

Part 1: What is Fast Charging and why is it better than normal charging?
Fast Charging is when you charge your phone faster than normal. It makes your battery charge faster than normal and it also makes your phone last longer. It’s much easier to understand through pictures so here’s an example of the differences:
Introduction: What is Fast Charging and Why Should You Turn It On?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a solid mid-range smartphone with some great features and specs. While the Note 5 is more than capable of handling a day’s worth of use, you may find yourself with little to no battery life when you’re out and about. Luckily, there’s a feature that can help: Fast Charging. A recent video from Samsung highlighted this feature, showing how the phone was charged to 50% in just 10 minutes! If you’ve always wanted to know how that’s possible, then read on.
Fast Charging is actually a feature that comes standard on all Galaxy devices, including the Note 5. While it does take a little bit of extra time for your phone to charge up, it’s well worth the wait when you’re running low on battery. Here’s how to turn it on and how to save some battery life:
**HOW TO TURN ON FAST CHARGING**
To enable fast charging, plug in your Note 5 while its off. The lightning bolt will appear in the notification bar. Touch and hold the icon until it expands, then touch the menu button. Tap on “Fast Charging,” then confirm you want to enable it.
**HOW TO SAVE BATTERY LIFE**
To save battery life, keep your phone plugged in while you’re using it. The built-in battery will always have a large amount of juice, but don’t forget that the charger you use is also quite capable of charging your phone faster than the outlet can. (This can be especially helpful for people who travel a lot. You can always pack along a portable charger and use that as opposed to your home charger.)
How Do I Enable Fast Charging for My New Samsung Note 5?
STEP 1: If your phone is not already on Fast Charging, you need to make sure that the setting is enabled. To do this, go to ‘Settings’, scroll down and select ‘About Device’ in the menu.
STEP 2: Locate the ‘Build Number’ and tap it 7 times. It will say ‘You are now a developer’.
STEP 3: Go back to the ‘Settings’ menu and locate the ‘Developer Options’. In there, enable ‘USB Debugging’ and make sure that ‘Show Notification’ is On.
STEP 4: Connect your phone to your PC using a USB cable. Your PC will now detect that there is a new device connected and will install the necessary drivers.
STEP 5: Open Command Prompt on your PC by pressing ‘Windows + R’ on your keyboard and typing in ‘cmd’. Press ‘OK’ to open Command Prompt.
STEP 6: In the Command Prompt, type in the following command and press enter: adb shell
What Happens if You Don’t Turn ON Fast Charging?
If you don’t enable Fast Charging, then your battery will drain more quickly. This is because the phone isn’t able to fully charge your battery; it has to use different charging speeds. This means that the battery only drains at a rate of 1% every minute, whereas Fast Charging can charge your phone up to 50% in just 10 minutes. So if you use your phone often and have a low battery life, it’s important to enable this feature. . . . . .
Are you aware of all this data? Is anyone helping you, or are you in control of it? I must be over 400 articles and among the best in my field, yet this article is just a tiny fragment of what I know and how I use these technologies. (It’s also barely readable and all CAPS with every sentence. It even starts with “This is an infomercial” and suddenly switches to “TRUE STORY”.) Because I’m happy to gratify the nonsensical use of “UPS” for charging, this article is a good example of the difference between my knowledge and what others are sold.
