Huawei's next fast charger could reduce charging times significantly
Presently, the crown of fastest charging technology goes to Oppo with its Super VOOC. This tech was most recently used in the Lamborghini Edition of the Find X flagship and can reportedly fully charge the 3400mAh battery that is included inside within just 35 minutes. However, if a new certification listing from China is anything to go by, rival Huawei may be on the brink of releasing its own charger that could potentially surpass Oppo’s one in terms of speed. Back in 2016, the number 3 manufacturer revealed its Honor Magic technology that allowed batteries to be fully charged in 45 minutes by using a 5V/8A configuration, but the newly-certified charger appears to make use of a much more powerful 10V/4A setup. This permits the power output to go as high as 40W – nearly double the 22W that Huawei’s current chargers are capable of reaching – and potentially reducing charge time to under 30 minutes, thus overtaking Oppo’s alternative.
As of now, there is yet to be an indication of when exactly Huawei plans on releasing its new technology. However, with the flagship Mate 20 series currently set to be unveiled in October, the Chinese brand could potentially be aiming to include it in the devices, or perhaps at least in the premium Mate 20 Pro which may include a 6.9-inch flexible OLED display.
