Imagine you wants to charge your phone overnight and you forgot to flip the switch after you plugged in and next morning you need to leave your home in 1hr, that 5W charging in that hour is really going to be a problem getting you through the day.

More useless tech to ruin your battery 4 times as fast. They are doing this on purpose knowing full well most don't have the means or knowledge to go to a repair center to change batteries when it dies. That means new phone purchases and mo e-waste.

Governments need to step it up and make it a criminal offense if a company doesn't make it user replaceable for batteries.

Anonymous, 04 Jul 2021Don't worry you'll get that in year 2050 on your ... moremy iPhone!!! where is it? in your pocket maybe!!! I'm fine with my Meizu note 8 with a 24W charger and if Allah grants, my next phone will be a Huawei Mate 40 Pro 4G with HMS/Harmony OS. fugk that tall and narrow screen (20:9) phones. 40W dash chargers are good enough. I will never be a slave of Apple.

That 200W charger will deliver 20-50 volts and to handle this voltage you will need an expensive safety ckt and yet, you will lose 25% capacity every year if it's still a LiPo battery.

Couldn't care less.

Just give me a battery that gets me through the day and I'll just charge my phone over night with a 5W charger, thank you very much.

Besides you have been educated on this matter by plenty of users in other comment sections, Yet you come out to spit out lies again

Anonymous, 04 Jul 2021Then keep being afraid and use your ultra slow 5W charger I don't actually have an "ultra slow 5W charger". Plus I only charge my phone once a day, and that too at night. So I'm not desperately in need of this is what I meant.

Replicant , 04 Jul 2021Did you even read the results?? It's 20% degradation ... moreAll sub 25W phones degrade to around 90% after 400 charge cycles and around 75% after 800 charge cycles.

Bhavick Singh, 04 Jul 2021Lmao, and lose 25% capacity every year. No thanks, Ill stic... moreMan like it matters when 9/10 people change their phone every 2 years cuz they had it from their network carrier on a monthly plan lasting 2 years.

YUKI93, 04 Jul 2021Sounds impressive, but I wonder how it will affect the batt... moreMan its not that bad .Charging technologies evolving batteries too.
If a microwawe oven doesnt crisps your meal along with house we can say its safe to use and microwawe oven takes a lot of electricity lot more than its healthy.

Even i would like to see irridium cells which have the power to recharge on its own without using or doing anything but irridium in nature is so scarce and is so expensive its not possible to use in current technologies maybe for army forfew devices but thats it.

But to my honest opinion. Most people have their phones for like 2 years on a mothly plan from their cell phone operators and after 2 years they switch to a new one so if the 800 charging cycles means 800 days of usage of your phone for example its still great to use and have. And if battery degrades by 20% after 800 cycles or days its still in good condition if the phone can last whole day or more on a charge.
I kn ow your feeling but its not that bad.
Imagine an EV car for example tesla who chan chargeits batteries from zero to full in 10-15 minutes. Gas and diesel cars will get out and finaly oil companies too because to be honest they making too much polution and damages nature. Soion or later this planet becomes uninhabitable and technologies which reduces this or makes planet more habitable and safer to live would and could be greatly welcomed.
Thus to my honest opinion.

Not sure how far that actually got and which phones are using it. Could be just Mi11 Ultra...

Lmao, and lose 25% capacity every year. No thanks, Ill stick to Samsung for now.
