How fast does your phone charge? And how fast do you want your future smartphone to charge? At the moment, one of the fastest charging technologies has been presented by Xiaomi. Its 100W charging seems to be from another planet. But the smartphone makers are working hard to overcome this technology. Actually, this has its own reasons. We mean, still, there is no technology allowing the manufacturers to bring more power to the same capacity battery. So as the use applications are getting wider, the companies have to solve the power shortage problem. Seems, new technology has been already developed. And if nothing accidental happens, it will appear on future phones quite soon.
According to Chinese media, at the Peking University Global Alumni Forum on December 1, Professor Huang Yunhui of the University of Science and Technology of China introduced their research results. It turns out they have developed a technology that makes the smartphone charge to 80% in 1 minute. At present, this fast charge technology has been used on the Huawei P30 and other smartphones. They prove the 5G smartphones will also widely use a fast charge technology in the future.
According to the investigation, the above-mentioned technology corresponds to the “Construction and Synergy Mechanism of High-Performance Composite Electrode Materials for Energy Storage” project. The latter won the second prize of National Natural Science in 2016. It uses the nitrogen-doped hard carbon anode material and it is the highest known capacity.
After the technology was transferred to Huawei in 2014, the technology was further digested and has been applied to the P30.
What fast charge technologies are offered by other brands?
As you know, the Huawei P30 supports 22.5W super-fast charge, while the P30 Pro supports 40W fast charge. However, OPPO has achieved a 65W fast charge, and Xiaomi has released a 100W fast charge as said above. The latter allows the 4000mAh battery to get full in 17 minutes.
