In this case, it's the Galaxy Note8, and it took developers about a month.

<p><a href="http://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/nexus2cee_IMG_0277.jpg" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone wp-image-444761 size-hero-size" src="http://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/nexus2cee_IMG_0277-e1507573719125-728x511.jpg" width="668" height="469" /></a>Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending a few days with DJI's latest, and smallest, drone, the Spark. The Spark is a remarkable piece of engineering. Weighing in at just 300 grams it's diminutive and dare I say, rather adorable.  Everywhere I took it during our long weekend together people stopped to gawk at it, most with stupid grins on their faces. No one was intimidated by its small form or its bee swarm-like sounds, and everyone was astonished that such a small drone could fly so fast and...

There are a lot of different charging standards right now, so one battery might fast charge a phone with Qualcomm Quick Charge, but it won't fast charge a Pixel or work to power a Type-C laptop.
