Huawei's latest fast charging tech might be the fastest yet

11 July 2018
The charger just got certified on 3C. It could be twice as fast as the current charger on the P20 series.

Sort by:

35 min to 100%? Cheat yes?

Sir huawei is very very good company

I think this will be fire hazard, especially with that massive battery.

Removable batteries and battery charger asides from phone charger would be ideal option. If there was a company to make water resistant phone, with removable battery and 1 extra battery and charger - I'd switch back to Android for that!

TheArtist, 14 Jul 2018Fast charging will definitely degrade the battery in long run re... moreMyth.. Fast charge DO not harm battery at all.

Degrades only happens if it gets too hot, or the battery is lousy and not able to accept that charge. (I do not believe Huawei will put lousy battery that does not accept that charge rate, else they gonna get angry customers)

However, of course, assuming you charge quick, you use quick also.. so you run thru the cycles faster, and thus you degrade the full capacity faster. :) But don't worry, the most it degrades to about 80%.. and it gonna flatline..

ProJames, 13 Jul 2018Well that's simply impossible. Think about it for a second. A so... moreYes, that's what mean.

They think most people are never cared about it affects battery life and how it works, so it's kinda safe that they advertised (read : lied) it with "lower power consumption"....

Fast charging will definitely degrade the battery in long run resulting in faster battery drain, faster degradation of battery, swelling up etc. Use it only when you need it. A better innovation would be to provide user removable battery in phones like 3 years ago.

I'm having Huwei Mate 10 phone. Since im using it from last year, the super fast charging from Huawei was so amazing lightining fast charger!!!

Ojex, 12 Jul 2018What is 1C ?Good question!

C is a ratio of how fast you charge a battery to its capacity. Charging a 3,750 mAh battery at 3,750 milliamps is 1C. Charging it twice as fast (7,500 mAh) or charging a battery half the size will be 2C.

Attention please, don't charging your phone on your bed! Especially with super fastest charging method.

Isn't that gonna kill the battery faster, and seeing huawei we can assure to get around 4000 mah cell, which mean faster cell degradation due to high density rapid charge

Dude. GPU boost is bogus. Never said anything about the 40W charger. Man what's wrong with people not reading comments and getting salty in a pinch recently?

Also, that tech isn't technically real now. You can't just say it's the best without trying it or seeing a review of it. That's just a listing not a review.
And as you "commend" Chinese OEMs because they are innovative, you'll have no problem to enumerate their innovations they did this year. You can rule out tri-cameras and full-screen sliding phones. So I'll wait.



Jamesschwarz987, 13 Jul 2018That's their claims. We need some wait until someone experiencing it.Well that's simply impossible. Think about it for a second. A software update making the GPU 60% timed more powerful? Without increasing energy consumption? Actually reducing it?

Look at all these fanboys hating on the Chinese because they are becoming better (technology wise) than their favorite fashion brands. All they talk about is design and looks.
>Huawei phones are known to have faster charging tech (safer than Qualcomm fast charg), bigger batteries with longer battery lifespan.
>Huawei does not have phones with exploding batteries

Imagine super fast charging tech combined with graphene batteries which already is said to charge 5x faster. So instead of about 20 minutes maybe 10 minutes. Or 20 for a large one
