Huawei’s New Fast Charging Technology May Be Officially Unveiled At MWC 2018
Huawei’s Watt Lab back in November 2015 demoed a new fast-charging technology, which could charge a lithium-ion battery up to 50% in just 5 minutes. Yesterday Huawei uploaded a demo video of the upcoming fast charging technology which showed a device’s 3,000mAh battery is removed and put inside a huge charger box after 5 minutes the battery was inserted back into the device and it was already at 48%.
Many recent reports suggest that Huawei might unveil the new fast-charging technology at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) after a long wait of 2 years.
Huawei explained that the new technology wouldn’t affect battery life at all. Also, there’s a twist in all of this which is that the new technology might not work with batteries that are currently present in our devices. The company also explained how the molecular structure of anode materials is changed with both physical and chemical lithium-ion storage capability resulting in high charging capacity without affecting the device’s battery life.
In the video, Huawei took the battery out of the phone and put it in a separate device which means that instead of using standardized wall brick charger for charging we might have to use a separate device, the question remains whether we would see a comeback of removable batteries or not.
Huawei recently launched a bunch of new devices, and none of them are having removable batteries so it would be interesting to see how Huawei would come up with this new technology in the coming months.
