Chinese manufacturers have embarked on a battle for fast charging, an area that neither Apple nor Samsung wants to enter. The demonstrations are on the rise. to Compete with Realme’s 240W and 300W Xiaomi fast charging technology, Infinix announces its technology FastCharge 260W. Besides, the smartphone maker has also introduced 110W fast wireless charging technology.

technology FastCharge 260W Infinix can charge up to 25% in about 1 minute and go from 0% to 100% in less than 10 minutes. Which is quite comparable to what Realme and Xiaomi announced.

A combination of technologies and sensors

With a proprietary protocol called All-Round FastCharge along with a gallium nitride (GaN)-based charger and charging cable capable of supporting 13A current, Infinix breaks the 240W limit imposed on USB cables with PowerDelivery 3.1.

a summary:

The protection mechanisms allow batteries, in theory, to maintain their energy storage efficiency for a long time. Infinix claims that the batteries can therefore retain 90% of their original energy storage capacity even after 1,000 charge cycles.

No less than 140 protection mechanisms and 20 temperature sensors are integrated into the charger. By the way, the charging station has a fan to keep the back of the charger cool. This technology will be available in the all-new Infinix Note phone, which was announced later in 2023.

In February 2023, Xiaomi showed off a modified version of the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition, which initially shipped with 210W technology introduced in December 2022. The modified phone included a smaller 4100mAh battery which charged in less than 5 minutes and at maximum power It is 290 W.

As a reminder, the Samsung Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra are compatible with wired charging at a maximum of 45W. As for the iPhone 14 Pro Max, it handles 25 to 27 watts with chargers of 30 watts and above.

Despite the impressive displays, the issue of safety stands out: Charging too quickly can cause the battery to overheat, as well as premature aging of the batteries. No studies have yet looked at the long-term impact of these ultra-fast charging technologies. However, Chinese manufacturers continue to work on this technology. And if this innovation is still risky, it could revolutionize the way we use our smartphones.
