10x Faster Huawei Charging Tech

There is always a trade off in having flagship caliber hardware when it comes to the biggest problem in the smartphone battery longevity. Most of the time smartphone companies resulted in a larger and heftier device, although most of the phones today have better software integration to manage battery life or bigger battery capacity. But even though the introduction of the bigger battery capacity in smartphones makes the device last longer, the charging time of this device still takes its due. Fortunately, the Chinese giant tech company Huawei has been developing a technology to minimize charging time up to 10 times of the normal.

The problem with the fast charging battery today is that the battery life is reduced in the process of breaking the charging time. Huawei has just announced a remarkable way in charging a smartphone battery with reduced risks. The company has just shown a kind of lithium-ion battery with a graphite coated anode that allows fast charging without compromising the longevity of the battery life.

Hence, a solution is found that can be both good for the battery and make charging time faster than before. To put it in a more human perspective, a 3000 mAh battery that most of the phones offer now can charge up to 50 percent in just 5 minutes. The company even announced that its 600 mAh prototype has charged up to 68 percent in just 2 minutes. This technology could be the answer to the problem of hungry-power apps and hardware in smartphones.

Huawei had even opened its tech with some facts in their development process. The tech company stated that it has bonded heteroatoms to the graphite anode, which in the process can maximize the charging speed of the battery without the danger of damaging the battery components that can affect its longevity.

However, the battery charging tech is not yet available to the public since its design is still impractical and bulky in nature. But Huawei is positive that it's just a matter of months and it can finally roll out the product for public usage. The application of this technology is not only limited to smart phones but it can also contribute in the industrial and medical fields and that's a fact strongly stated by Huawei on its announcement.
