Huawei demos ultra-fast battery charging technology
Huawei has showcased its new battery charging technology that allows replenishing teh power up to ten times faster than the technologies currently used in mobile devices.
At the 56th Battery Symposium in Japan , the Chinese giant demoed a 600 mAh and a 3,000 mAh lithium-ion batteries using the new technology. The results were pretty impressive, as the 600 mAh unit charged to 68% in barely two minutes, compared to only 2% in the same amount of time for a "regular" battery.
The 3,000 mAh battery was being charged for 5 minutes, during which time it regained 48% of power, which is much faster than the current Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 and OPPO VOCC Flash Charge technologies.
To achieve this, the company's engineers bonded heteroatoms to the molecule of graphite in anode, which could be a catalyst for the capture and transmission of lithium through carbon bonds. Huawei stated that the heteroatoms increase the charging speed of batteries without decreasing energy density or battery life.
