LG has definitely stepped up their game when it comes to their smartphones and it really began with last year’s release of the LG G6 and the LG V30 really set things off. What made the LG V30 so valuable, it, of course, made use of the latest specs at the same time, but it improved on its wide-angle camera lens and it also made use of an AMOLED screen.
To put it basically, it brought LG’s phones a step closer to becoming larger and more successful phones that can compete with Samsung. Then earlier this year, the LG G7 and the LG V35 ThinQ were released and they improved on the phones even more.
Now, we have the LG V40 ThinQ, and it’s starting to get to the point where the anticipation for LG smartphones is actually becoming something important. As they’re starting to provide more value and now with the V40 ThinQ, it makes use of three cameras, with them being a standard, telephone zoom lens, and also a wide-angle lens.
The phone definitely is stepping up its game with its use of a Snapdragon 845 processor, just as the competitors are using. However, the real highlight is that it’s also making use of 6GB of RAM.
The one problem with the V40 ThinQ? Well, it makes use of a 3,300mAh battery capacity. You might think that’s a lot but this phone is really something of a Samsung Note 9 type of a phone and because of that, a 3,300mAh battery burns away rather quickly.
That’s why we’ve chosen the fast chargers that you should be using with your LG V40 ThinQ. As this powerhouse of a smartphone does have a slight weakness with its battery power.
Anker PowerPort 3-Port Wall Charger
When it comes to the wall charger that comes with a smartphone, it’s only going to feature a single port. The good thing is that the single port on the wall charger features Quick Charge, the downside is that you’ll only be able to charge your LG V40 ThinQ with it. Another plus is that at least most Android smartphones come with a fast charger, unlike Apple iPhones, that cost $1,000 and yet only come with a 5W wall charger.
So if you want to charge more than a single device at a time and still charge your V40 at its max charging speed, it’s wise to get something like this Aukey 3-port wall charger.
The charger has one Quick Charge 3.0 port that can fast charge any Quick Charge compatible smartphone on the market. The other two ports are standard ones that each have a 5V/2.4A (18W) charging rate.
Along with having powerful individual ports, this charger also has a high max output of 43.5W. So you can use all the ports at their max power at the same time.

Quick Charge Port: 3.6 – 6.5V/3.0A | 6.5 – 9V/2.0A | 9-12V/1.5A
Standard USB Port: 5V/2.4A
Max Output: 43.5W or 8.7A
Anker PowerPort Speed 4 USB Wall Charger
Going up another port, this is Anker’s PowerPort Speed 4 wall charger. Anker is a brand that is one of the best when it comes to charging electronics, pertaining to their wall chargers, portable chargers, and car chargers, too.
With the usage of a single Quick Charge port and another three standard ports that each have a 5V/2.4A charging speed, this is one of the best wall chargers to own if you want to have the ability to charge many other devices while you charge your QC smartphone. Also, because it still has a wall charger form factor, meaning that it makes use of a retractable AC adapter that makes portability with it easier.
The max output of the PowerPort Speed 4 is 43.5W. You can still use the full power of the Quick Charge port and still charge another three devices, but power will be split among the standard ports only if the charging power goes over the max output.

RAVPower 6-port Desktop Charger with Quick Charge
Desktop chargers are a charging electronic that you should also consider getting, as they’re basically wall chargers, but they feature more ports and have a power cord. The use of a power cord can definitely be more useful if you want to have the ability to place the charger where you want.
This RAVPower desktop charger features 6 six ports, so you can charge six devices at once. Only one port features Quick Charge, and the other five ports have a charging rate of 5V/2.4A. The max output of the charger is 60W, so there’s plenty of power to go around for charging six devices at once.

Aukey 6-Port Desktop Charger with Two Quick Charge Ports
However, if a 6-port desktop charger with just a single Quick Charge port isn’t enough, Aukey has their six port charger with two Quick Charge ports. It’s not something that’s the norm and that’s a shame because, with the usage of two Quick Charge ports, you can fast charge an LG V40 ThinQ and a Samsung smartphone at it’s their max charging speed, at the same time.
The other four ports on this charger have a standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A. You can still charge Non-Quick Charge compatible smartphones with the Quick Charge ports though, and they will simply default to a 5V/2.4A charging speed.
