fast charger app for android phones

We’ve all been there. You’re ready to leave to meet up with friends or go out on a date, but your phone doesn’t have quite enough juice to see you through.

So instead of going about your day, you’re held hostage as you wait for your device to slowly charge from red to green. If this is a scenario that sounds all too familiar to you, then you might want to consider a fast charging app for your Android.

These days, there are plenty of fast charging apps to download from the Google Play store. We’ll be running through the seven best options for speeding up your charging.

So what are fast charging apps, and how do they work? Essentially, they boost your phone’s charging by optimising its RAM.

They’re different from the range of physical fast chargers that companies such as Samsung and Huawei are putting out there, which work by upping the electrical current sent to your phone.

You don’t need any fancy cables to get started with a fast charging app, as they’re all about reducing background processes so your phone can focus on charging. Simply download the app and you’re good to go.

1. Fast Charging - Fast Charge

You’ll find a lot of unimaginative names when it comes to fast charger apps, but what’s important is how they function.

This app, named Fast Charging – Fast Charge, is a popular choice from developer Vinhash with over five million downloads and a rating of 4.4 stars on Google Play.

Fast Charging

One of the things we like most about Fast Charging – Fast Charge is its minimal UI.

Its simple interface shows your current battery level and gives you essential information about your battery, such as its health, temperature and voltage.

You can check your battery usage to see what’s draining it the most and even set a ringtone to alert you when your battery is at full charge.

As with most free apps, there are ads; but they never get in the way and are less obnoxious than other options we’ve tried.

There are a few downsides to Fast Charge’s stripped-back design.

A lot of fast charger apps give you control over which individual features you’d like to turn on and off in order to boost your charging, such as wifi and screen brightness, but that isn’t the case here. Instead, you’ll only find one button: start.

We would like to see a premium version that gives you greater control and gets rid of the adverts.


2. Fast Charger - Fast Charging App 2020

Don’t let the dated name fool you, Fast Charger – Fast Charging App 2020 is actually the app we prefer over the similarly named (if slightly snappier) Fast Charging 2021.

With over ten million downloads and another 4.4 star rating, it’s clear that a lot of users agree.

Fast Charger2020

Our favourite feature of this app is that it lets you choose the way you want to optimise your charging.

Doing this is simple: go into the settings menu and check or uncheck options like clearing your RAM, turning off wifi and Bluetooth, or turning down your brightness.

It should be said that this app clearly hasn’t been translated into English very well, and you’re likely to find misspellings and confusing phrases such as ‘show ask dialog when plug charger’. If you can look past that, then this is a good choice.

Like the above, this app from Eco Mobile VN also contains ads.

Unlike Fast Charging – Fast Charge however, you have a choice between the free version and the ad-free version, which is a cheap one-time payment of $0.99 rather than a subscription.

If you’re going to use this app, we recommend paying to remove the ads as they can get quite annoying.


3. Fast Charging Pro (Speed Up)

This fast charger from Nuotec Studio is one of the better apps we’ve seen due to its combination of detailed information and customisable optimisation settings. Its straightforward and well-designed user interface tells you the input current in milliamps next to the standby current, and gives you a rating for how well your phone is currently charging.

Each option also has a brief explanation for those who aren’t super tech-minded, letting you know useful tips like turning off your location services will increase charging speed.

Fast Charger 2020

Fast Charging Pro (Speed Up) has a range of ‘VIP’ premium features, but you’ll get by just fine without them.

We personally don’t see much benefit of knowing your charging history, but the fact that it removes ads and lets you set an alarm for when you reach 100% might sway your decision to shell out $3.95 per month or $33.26 yearly for the full version.


4. One Booster - Antivirus, Booster, Phone Cleaner

One Booster is a little different from the other apps on this list in that it’s not advertised specifically as a fast charger, but rather as a way to boost your phone’s overall performance.

With that being said, it still performs many of the same tasks you’d expect, plus a few extra ones too. It’s one of the highest rated apps in Google Play’s ‘tools’ category and has a whopping 50 million downloads, with an average rating of 4.7 stars.

one booster

The app from One Dot Mobile Limited has three main features. The first is its smart battery saver, which like a fast charger app, kills redundant apps that drain your battery and prevent your phone from charging as quickly as it should.

The second feature is designed to boost your phone’s speed and free up some space for things like new photos and downloads by clearing away your app caches and junk files in a single tap.

And thirdly, One Booster has a CPU cooler to help your phone run smoothly. It’s not related to fast charging, but it’s worth mentioning that the app also comes with a free antivirus.

The free version contains pop-up ads, which can be removed by paying for one of its reasonable monthly or yearly premium subscriptions, priced at $1.97 per month, $2.68 for three months, and $7.77 for the entire year.

The premium version also grants you access to additional features such as automatic cleaning, automatic virus scanning and a photo cleaner.


5. Super Fast Charging - Charge Master 2020

This is another example of a fast charger app whose usefulness has outlived its name. As the thumbnail implies, Super Fast Charging – Charge Master 2020 is still very much in the running for best fast charger app in 2021.

This free app from Power Doctor Team claims to be able to help you charge your phone up to 50% faster, though we think that’s a bit of an overestimate in most users cases.

charge master 2

One cool feature of Charge Master is that it automatically launches when you plug in your Android charger. All you need to do is tap the start button and let it work its magic.

The app finds and kills other apps that are draining your battery and turns off (or adjusts) things like wifi and 4G, Bluetooth, brightness, screen timeout and auto-sync.

These are all configurable in the settings menu, so if you don’t want to have to peer closely to see your screen or if you need your wifi on to message friends while charging, it’s not a problem.

This one is pretty useful for Android owners around the globe as it supports over 20 different languages.

The UI is simple and intuitive, mirroring the design and layout of the Android quick panel and displaying useful information such as temperature, voltage and capacity.

You can also access your charge history to keep track of how well your battery is charging over time.

The app displays some pretty obnoxious ads that take up the full screen but you can remove these with a cheap one-time purchase of $1.97.

There’s no premium version to be found here, as all of the features are automatically included for free. Charge Master doesn’t have quite as many users are the other apps we’ve looked at, but it’s still been downloaded over one million times.

The average review rating of 4.6 puts it higher than some of the other popular choices.


6. Fast Charger - Fast Charging, Battery Optimizer

Fast Charger – Fast Charging, Battery Optimizer by Toolbox Mobile is another top rated choice, with an average review of 4.5 stars and over one million downloads.

Like other apps on this list, it combats slow charging with a single tap by turning off your wifi connection, mobile data, GPS, Bluetooth, and anything else that’s likely to slow your device down while charging.

Fast Charge

When you open the app, you’re greeted by a futuristic looking display that shows your current battery percentage and how fast it’s draining or charging, along with your estimated battery life.

It also displays key information about your battery, including the temperature, voltage and mAh capacity.

This fast charger app follows a similar formula to Charge Master and other apps, with options to cool down your CPU, clean up junk from your system memory, and track your charge history.

The UI is slightly less impressive, but ads are relegated to a slim bar and we like the way it clearly displays how much memory you have left on your Android phone.

What we don’t like is how expensive the ‘VIP’ premium version is, costing around four times as much as One Booster at $5.93 monthly or $29.72 per year (at its current 50% discount) and providing very little other than removing the adverts and giving you priority customer support.


7. Super Fast Charger

The app with the snappiest name we’ve seen is Super Fast Charger, and the uncluttered user  interface certainly reflects AmtTeam’s decision not to over complicate things.

The app is less popular than others on this list with 500k downloads, but it makes up for it with a 4.7 star rating.

It’s still in development mode, but from what we’ve seen, it’s just as good as some of the top fast charger apps.

Super Fast Charger

This very green-themed app displays your current battery level alongside an estimated battery life and detected ‘power issues’ that might be causing your battery to drop faster.

Press the ‘fix now’ button and Super Fast Charger will get to work closing background apps and services to optimise your device. Just like Charge Master, it displays buttons to turn on and off in a quick panel style menu, along with options for different charging speeds, battery information and other tools like a trash cleaner and a phone cooler.

There’s also a built-in app manager that lets you directly uninstall unwanted apps you may have forgotten about.

The app does have a pro version to remove adverts priced at $10.32, but we doubt you’ll find it necessary as the ads are way less intrusive than other faster charger apps we’ve seen.


Our Pick

So, which of these is the best fast charger app? Well, if you’re looking for an app that goes above and beyond the competition, we recommend One Booster for its built-in antivirus and junk cleaning features.

When it comes to phone and battery health, it makes sense to include these features in the same tool instead of bogging your phone down with multiple apps. With over 50 million downloads, it’s clear that a lot of Android users agree.

If what you’re looking for is a simple fast charger app that isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel, then our favourite of the bunch is Charge Master 2020.

We think the minimal user interface is far better-looking and easier to use than the more flashier apps and will come naturally to any Android user.

The adverts may be a bit of a nuisance, but they can be removed at a small cost without shelling out for a monthly subscription, and features that come at a premium price with other apps are completely free.
