    I have seen 15w/5 from bekin which makes z2 force actually display turbo charging instead of charging
    I also saw a 27watt Belkin charger. Might be too much watts for z2 but don't know.
    Adaptive quick charge from Samsung
    Also a different Fast charge from Samsung which is lower wattage I think.
    Verizon sells a car charger but not sure the wattage

    The z2 comes with a wall charger that says 1.2 amps out but not the volts so u can tell what the watts out are. When connected it says turbo charging.
    The turbo 2 also says 1.2 amps out but when connected to force it doesn't say turbo which leads me to believe the force needs more watts to turbo charge.

    What's the max watts and amps the z2 force can handle?

    Dude....what are you doing? Use the charger that came with your phone and don't worry about "Turbo Charging". That was a term used in Verizon Droid branded phones only. Use the charger that came with your phone and don't worry about after market chargers. You are going to end up blowing up your battery just trying to see "Turbo Charging" on your screen and that doesn't apply to your current phone. You don't own a Droid anymore.

    give the model of the belkin you are looking at. it should give the phones it works with. I do agree with the previous post, stick with oem. get the wrong charger and you could have a fire.

    The charger that comes with the phone makes it say turbo charging. So turbo charging term must be part if the force line as well.
    I was trying to find correct car charger and second house charger at Walmart, Best buy etc but none of them say made or compatible with force so I am trying to find the correct specs that it needs so I know which brands or models are compatible.

    Amps = Watts/Volts
    Watts = Amps x Volts
    Volts = Watts/Amps
    So the charger that comes with phone lists 1.5 amps | 12 volts so it seems that it outputting 18 watts
    So the Belkin car charger that says 15 watts may be on the low side an the one that says 27 may be too strong. I wonder if there is a car charger that does 18 watts or if Moto has recommended specs somewhere

    Then buy an OEM Moto charger for your phone from Moto as a spare. No guessing about wattage, voltage, current, and no chance of an exploding battery. As far as car chargers the Verizon brand USB C fast charge car charger will work on your phone and will safely fast charge it.

    The Belkin lists 5 volts x 3 amps to get 15 watts vs house charger that says 1.5 amps x 12 volts looking at most of the car charges they seem to use higher amps even though where you plug it in says 12 volts. Hmm...
    Based off that article the house charger that came from the force will charge slower then the car charger because it's lower amps but the car charger will charge faster but heat the phone. The article says amps are drawn by the device so high amps can't harm phone(hope that's accurate). Gonna watch if the force gets hot on car charger. It's stayed ice cold so far no matter how much I use it or charge it so far. Seems power opimization so far pretty good, hopefully it will last..

    Still would like phone makers to post what max values are supported by phones.
    I notice most home chargers that don't don't come with phones are 2.1 amps instead of 1.5 amps , havent seen a 3 amo home charger.

    The Verizon brand USB C fast car charger is compatible with all Z Series phones and you wouldn't have to guess if it works or not.

    I checked mororola web site I only see phones not accessories for sale. Where can oem parts be purchased. I only see third party in Google search
