This is not a software setting: Android is just telling you that the power source you connected the device to is not giving enough electrical power to charge as fast as it could. It seems that: "Charging slowly" means below 1A (at 5V), "Charging" means between 1A and 1.5A, "Charging rapidly" means more than 1.5A. The solution is to make more electrical ...

Moto X Play supports fast charging, though this review says a fast charger is not supplied with it, maybe they supplied it subsequently Fast charging needs to be supported by the USB cable as well. The D+ and D- pins of the cable negotiate the charging voltage and current with the device, in tune with the charging circuitry in the charger (see Overview of ...

User manual of your device does not offer any clue, but Acer community forums highlight the feature of original charger to do fast charging by delivering more current, which probably the other chargers don't have From Acer Iconia won't charge, see reply of Acebillsey The charger that came with should have been a 5.35V 2A charger with internal settings ...

It won't make any difference , if you are charging from a wall adapter (assuming both cables are fine as mentioned) But, if you are using your laptop, things change.
