How to Charge The Mobile Faster From the Computer with a USB

In recent years the USB connector has evolved at a dizzying pace. Current computers have USB 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 ports, and new specifications are released almost every year. Just a week ago they have announced the new USB 3.2, which fortunately will allow us to double the speed without changing the cables.


Many of us are accustomed to charging the smartphone by connecting it to a USB port on the computer because it is easier and our mobile will be nearer to us when we are on PC or Laptop. And here comes the question: Does the mobile load faster in a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port? The quick answer is it depends. The answer is clearly explained as follows.

How to charge the mobile faster from the computer

To recharge the mobile phone it is advisable to use a charger and connect it to a wall socket. This ensures the highest speed of recharge if the charger is suitable.  

But sometimes, for convenience, or because we have more at hand, we charge the mobile by connecting it to a USB port on the computer. It is perfectly valid and there is no problem in doing so. But on a modern PC, there are USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, so it is normal to ask: In which USB port does the mobile load faster?

The type of USB port sets the maximum recharge speed. A  USB 2.0 port can supply up to  500 mA, while a USB 3.0 port offers up to  900 mA. But that does not mean that all phones connected to a USB 3.0 will charge faster than a USB 2.0 port. There are other factors involved.

Specifications of USB port

The other specifications are as follows.

The maximum capacity of the battery:

If the battery only accepts up to 500 mA, then there will be no difference between using a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port.

The software

There are mobiles that, by compatibility, limit the load to 500 mA when they detect that you have connected it to a USB port, although that port offers more power of recharge. More modern versions of operating systems disable this limitation when they detect that the port is USB 3.0 or higher.


Not all USB cables are the same. If the mobile accepts the charging at 900 mA and connects it to a USB 3.0 port with a USB 2.0 cable, it will only recharge at 500 mA

In summary, if you want to charge the mobile at maximum speed on the PC you need a USB 3.0 port and also need a USB 3.0 cable. And then check that both the battery and the operating system allow fast charging through a USB port, not just from a charger.

This is how we can charge our mobile faster from our PC or laptop. When you are in a hurry, it is quite helpful to do so. Check out your ports power and see that which ports your laptop or your computer system has and then plug in the necessary USB cables to them.
