Huawei's next fast charger could reduce charging times significantly

Huawei's next fast charger could reduce charging times significantly
In recent years, smartphone manufacturers have begun focusing more and more on fast charging technologies, with even Apple making use of the tech last year. After all, not only does aid companies when it comes to marketing, but it can also help make up for batteries that are on the smaller side when it comes to capacity.

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.

No. It can't overtake Oppo's Super VOOC. Had you looked upto some stats, you would have known Super VOOC is 10 Volts at 5 Amperes (50 Watts). That is 25% faster than Huawei's newer solution (40 Watts). Furthermore, it's not even doubled from 22 watts to 40 watts, still a bit lesser. Even if one cuts down charging time by half on Huawei phones, they will still take at least 40-45 minute to completely charge for a 3400 mAh battery. Honor 10 with 3400 mAh battery and Huawei Supercharge takes approximately 80 minutes to charge completely. Now do the math. Infact the charging wattage isn't even being doubled. It's approx 1.8 times of the original.

So, all of that just to only say it's .2 away from double the original.

Naah. Looks like your comprehension skills aren't that strong. Not exactly double is just one of the many points made. Super VOOC being superior with 50 watts and faster charging times of 35 minutes while Huawei solution falling in range of 40-45 minutes are other points that i made.
