[dropcap]B[/dropcap]attery life has been always a sore spot with smartphones, but as innovations continue to take place, we’re seeing more and more progress towards better battery life. While larger batteries may not be the common answer to the problem, many manufacturers are implementing quick charging technology into their smartphones, thus reducing the amount of time needed to refuel your smartphone.
Huawei has just unveiled its new quick charging technology that knocks the socks off of current quick chargers. From a numbers standpoint, Huawei’s new batteries charge 10 times faster than current batteries. In a demo, Huawei showed a 3000mAh battery charging from 0-50% in just over five minutes. With a 600mAh battery, the technology was able to bring it to a 68% charge in a mere two minutes.
Huawei has a technological explanation for the improvements, but the main gist of the story is that these new batteries charge ridiculously quickly. Huawei has put a lot of effort into testing the batteries, and with any luck, we’ll see them in devices in the near future. Though a battery that lasts for a longer period of time would be nice, charging at speeds like this is a solid alternative. Keep up the good work, Huawei.
