Gone are the days when we used to plug in the mobile charger and keep the switch on overnight, or we used to remove the battery from the mobile and charge it separately. Today, the scenario is different. The introduction of fast charging technology has changed the dynamics of today’s smartphones in many ways. We no longer need to worry about slow, tedious charging as more smartphones are offering fast charging technology these days.
Why Fast Charging?
The primary aim behind the fast charging technology is to provide more power to the mobile battery. Generally, a USB-A port without fast charging capabilities provides up to 2.5W power, which barely caters to the battery requirements of today’s high-end smartphones. The newly introduced USB-C port can be faster, up to 15W. However, it is not promising either.
With the fast charging technology, today’s smartphone batteries can be powered from 18W to 65W. The time required to fully charge the battery has also been reduced, ranging from 30 minutes to an hour. With more advances in technology, we have even witnessed 120 W hyper charging mobile phones—like the recently launched Xiomi 11i Hypercharge—emerging in the market. Moreover, fast charging today is not limited to wires, thanks to the introduction of wireless fast charging.
