No matter if we care to admit it or not, our smartphones play a huge role in our lives nowadays. We can’t go anywhere without them, even if we don’t plan on using them. However, in the majority of cases, we end up with our eyes on the screen anyway. This is the reason why we just can’t stand it when our beloved smartphones run out of energy and we have to wait for hours for them to fully charge again. Thankfully, many devices already support fast charging, which seriously decreases the amount of time we need to spend charging their batteries. Huawei offers its SuperCharge technology, which would make charging an even faster process.
The Chinese company recently teamed up with TÜV Rheinland, in order for the latter to certify the new technology. After all, there is no use in having a technology that is extremely fast but it’s not safe. The SuperCharge technology relies on two extra pins added to the USB Type- C port. Thanks to this addition, devices that support this technology should support 5A charging at 4.5V. Naturally, the higher amperage causes the battery to charge a lot faster. Thanks to the low voltage, the smartphones using this technology do not heat up. We’ve all seen what damages an overheated battery can cause. Playing it safe is really important when delivering a smartphone battery, and Huawei seems to know it.
According to the Chinese company, the new technology doesn’t only ensure a lot faster charging, it is also extremely safe. With such a high amperage, charging a smartphone only takes a few minutes. The Huawei Mate 9 and the Huawei P10 already come with this technology, making them two of the fastest charging handsets. It’s safe to assume that other Huawei handsets will follow carrying this technology. Now that it will also be certified by TÜV Rheinland, users can rest assured that it won’t cause their handsets to explode due to overheating.
