Have you ever noticed your Huawei charges slowly when it’s plugged into anything but the original charger? FCP charging is unique to Huawei and means most regular quick chargers won’t work. There are many QC3 chargers, but only a few FCP chargers available. The Blizwolf S6 is an FCP charger and will fast charge the Huawei P10, P9, and most earlier models. With the S6 it’s ok if your juggling around a few different branded devices, it’s loaded with not only FCP but also Apple, Samsung and QC compatibility.
Why won’t QC 3.0 fast charge Huawei phones?
They might all use the same cables, but fast charging is not as simple as just having a more powerful charger, there are multiple fast charging methods. One of the most common is QC. The downside with QC is it requires a Qualcomm chip device, and phone makers also need to pay for licensing. Some companies like Huawei developed their own in-house protocol, so you can only get the best charge with their particular charging method.
Some quick charging protocols
- MediaTek PUMP Express
- Huawei FCP
- Samsung AFC
- Apple BC1.2
- QC 2.0/3.0
PD will standardize fast charging… hopefully.
Right now, its all a bit like the memory card dilemma in the 2000’s, we had SD, XD, and Sony memory sticks. SD became the standard we use today. On the charging front, PD charging is set to become the one standard for the future. This Type-C only charging method requires no licensing costs and is built to be universal. For now, fast charging your Huawei needs FCP. The S6 is capable of charging almost every fast charge device on the market.
