I want to know charging mobiles from electric outlet or via USB (connected with laptop/PC) is same or they are charged faster when using electric outlet?
I use both methods, sometime I notice the mobile is charged faster when connected with PC/laptop but sometime electric outlet does the fast job.
What is the actual science?
USB 2.0 port is rated at 500ma..as people said above. this was standard charging for phones a few years back when batteries were not that advanced.. now with large batteries and tablets with upto 4000mah capacity, usb charging will take forever to charge them.
the science is that usb 2.0 is a decade old technology only recently replaced by 3.0. with 3.0 you can charge at around 2 amps which is the standard charging amp for iphones 4s and above. androids have larger batteries and can take much more amps as well.. therefore mobo manufactures eg Gigabyte MSI and Asus now offer boost charging modes on their 3.0 ports which allow for temporary increase in amps for faster charging.,.. this all can happen upto the limits of the USB 3 port technology .. which will soon be superceded by another 3.1 with even more features and power
the electric wall charging is totally depednant on the charger.. every company makes its own charger according the phone they bundle it with.. most phones come with a 1 amp 5v charger.. some come with 2 amps charger. the reason is that each charger is matched to the charging rate of the battery of that specific phone. if you connect a 1 amp charger for a phone requiring 2 amps for optimal charging, it will still charge, but at half the rate of the 2 amp charger.. if you charge a 1 amp capable battery with a 3 amp charger it will decrease battery life, heat up the phone ,. battery will swell and soon lead to damage to phone.
the charging for phone is best matched with the supplied ORIGINAL charger.. rapid chargers slightly increase the voltage or have bigger transformers to allow for faster flow of current. a 2 amps charger is easily compatible with almost all modern phones..
some companies make propriety chargers.. sony xperia has some models with charger which will rapid charge THAT phone in one less hour from 0-100%.. but will charge at normal rate with every other phone, even another xperia,.

Insted of electricaly charging ... USB charging is more secur and consume less energy ...
