Bluboo show the difference between their huge quick charger for the Bluboo X550 and a regular phone charger.
There has been a lot of talk about battery size this year, and while we see a lot of phones get a bump in battery power, they aren’t all getting the added benefit of quick charging. Quick charging of couse isn’t strictly necessary, but when you have a massive 5300mAh battery like the Bluboo X550 does, it can be a real bonus.
Bluboo have opted to use Mediatek’s own battery charging solution to charge the American Amprius battery in the phone. Mediatek’s quick-charge solution is called Pump Express Plus, a funny name no doubt, but a powerful feature to have.
Using the special (5V/2A 7V/2A 9V/1.5A 12V/1.1A) charger with an output of 14w, the large quick charger which Bluboo ships with the X550, Bluboo claim a %50 charge can be achieved in just 40min, while %75 takes just 1 hour. In comparison we have seen some phones with smaller 3000mAh batteries take as long as 2 hours to get to %75.
In addition to Pump Express Plus the Bluboo X550 comes with a Mediatek MT6735 processor, 2GB RAM and a 5.5-inch HD display. Pricing of the phone is currently around $159.99.
