Huawei unveils new quick charging technology; can charge 3,000 mAh battery in 10 minutes

HuaweiBattery technology on the go has come a long way in the last few years; we’re spoiled with most devices now sporting some form of quick charging, whether it just be high-wattage chargers, Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology, Motorola’s Turbo Charging, or Nexus’ Rapid Chargers. The innovation isn’t complete, though, with Huawei announcing new quick-charging lithium ion batteries at a recent conference in Japan.

The two batteries used in the demo were a 600 mAh battery, which could be charged to just under 70% in two minutes, and a 3,000 mAh battery which could be charged to just under 50% in five minutes. This latter battery translates to around 10 hours of battery use from a five minute charge, which is rather impressive compared to the current Nexus 6P which can add about 7 hours use from 10 minutes charging.


At this stage, the batteries are charged via a fairly large charging device rather than an on-board charging capability powered through a phone’s charging port, though it’s entirely possible that we’ll see this technology incorporated into mobile phones in the future. I for one can’t wait.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
