    I just noticed my phone DOES say Turbocharging using OEM plug and 3rd party cable. How long have I had this thing? LOL[​IMG]

    I got a Belkin combo USB c (15w) USB a(17w) dual port wall charger with usb-c to usb-c cable in the box. This seems to work fine so far as a second wall charger for work
    I am using my old turbo 2 wall outlet box with a usb-c to usb-a cable to keep in car if I have to charge in someone's house while out. It just doesn't turbo charge.(ironic).

    I tried to charge my phone with a portable fast charger from Samsung that worked on turbo 2 .
    When I tried when it was at 20 percent the phone said turbo charging then stopped and the charger flashed 4 LEDs which the manual said incompatible phone. When I charged the phone to 70% the portable charger worked and charged to 100% which I think is because phones pull more from battery when at a lower percent and the portable charger couldn't handle it.

    I then tried a generic no name charger that works on iPhones. Phone didn't charge at all

    Then I tried an old Samsung 10000 mAh Mophie usb-a to usb-c plug and it charged fine(this is my new current portable I will have to use till I find a compatible fast Charger which is my next search...

    I checked with Moto support and it seems their portable chargers output 2.4 amps, not sure of voltage and watts
    I'm going to look for portables that are similar in stores and compare

    Buy Motorola Battery Packs - MotorolaStore.com

    Why not just buy a Moto Mod battery pack that snaps right on the back of the phone. It IS a Moto Mod phone after all.

    I don't want Moto mod as I don't want the thinkness or risk them breaking apart when I drop or else that would be a good idea:)

    The new one is not thick at all. So you would rather have a heavy battery dangling from your USB C port than a thin battery magnetically snapped to the back of your phone?

    Trust me.... You'll love the battery pack. Drove to Dallas from Houston. 4 and a half hours. Had maps (hence the screen never shut off) while streaming Amazon music through the Bluetooth. All while driving through some weak signal areas.
    Mophie battery was at 30 percent and my phone stayed charged up to 80 percent when I got to the airport.
    Not bad at all. Went the rest of the day without charging. Placed some calls... some more navigating through town...Did my bedtime reading... Lots of screen on time. Woke up this morning to a 9 percent on the battery pack and my phone battery at 80 percent. (The battery pack is not a "battery", it's a phone battery charger, got it set up to keep my phone at 80 percent)
    All without dangly cables! Suck it iPhone!!

    Yea, amazing for traveling. Forget carrying another box dangling from it. Traveled to Florida, videos on the plane, game. Landed. Went to Universal Studios. Had 60% when we got back to the hotel. Real nice never having to worry about the battery. I do the 80 thing too.
    /Edit Oh, and it doesn't need its own charger.
