This week several companies announced more than 100 watts of fast charging solutions for the future of smart phones – iQOO’s, 120W Super FlashCharge, Realme 125 W UltraDART, Xiaomi teased a 100W charger, Yes, you announced that, not only is 125 W for wired charging, but it is also 65 AirVOOC wireless charging. Lenovo Legion in close proximity with 90. How much is too much?
According to the Oppo’s numbers, and a 4000 mAh battery will be fully charged in about 20 minutes. iQOO, it promises to do in 15 minutes. Xiaomi is a 100W charger, it is no slouch either, and from 0 to 100% in 17 minutes. In the case of the Oppo’s wireless option, it’s 100% is reached in about 30 minutes.
Partial charges are just insanely fast up 33% in 3 minutes and said Realme, and 41% in 5 minutes, claim Yes. At this point, you can select a day, while you are looking for in your purse before heading out.
What do you think – is this the most we’ll ever need, or is there room to go faster, right?
Also, keep in mind that this is not simply a case of “the more, the better”. Realme, for example, the switch 14 and the temperature sensors in the battery to make sure it never overheats. Yes, using the 10 sensors. iQOO say that additional cooling is necessary for the protection of the computer system.
All of these systems split the battery into two 2000 mAh cells, and the use of the two load circuits, an effective doubling of the rate of charge of the battery, at the cost of doubling the size of the system and its complexity. The additional costs that must be.
The companies will be advertising, charging speed, using a 4,000 mAh battery, which is good as it helps you to compare the different technologies. It can’t be a coincidence, but if they don’t have to be only the best quality in battery cells, and are likely to be available only at certain capacities. Wouldn’t you rather have a 5000 or even 6000 mAh battery pack, even if it has to – gasp! an extra half an hour to be fully charged?
For faster charging, it brings added complexity and cost
Because there’s something else to consider as a whole did not make a difference unless we are comparing the battery life of the device. A big battery is at 80%, it would be worth more than a small battery is at 100%. Plus, in the last 10 to 20% in the lowest, to take account of, so that the gain is a fixed amount of ma-h in, a bigger battery is better than doing the same thing with a smaller battery.
This can be simplified to the following question, which is related to load fast, but it more or less but rarely? Also, with wireless charging, which is faster than some wired solutions, do the threads still make sense?
Looking at it from a different angle, yet, wouldn’t you prefer to have a slower USB bus Power Supply charger which can be used across brands, and all of the devices (for example, to charge your laptop, or Nintendo, on / off Switch), instead of a bunch of high, but it is not compatible with the solutions? For what it’s worth, Oppo’s solution supports a number of USB-PD for Programmable Power supply by default, the full-125W, so it might be that both are available as an option.
