Huawei's new fast charging lithium-ion juicer charges quickly without having to pay the piper

The 3000mAh cell being tested has a technology that allows it to be charged rapidly without shortening the life of the battery. That is one of the drawbacks with today's rapid charging systems. And it also doesn't suffer from capacity-shrinkage. That is another issue that results from today's quick charging technology.
This is apparently not ready for prime time, as a special charger is required to power up the cells. And the technology does not yet lend itself for use in a system that fits in your pocket. The quick charging works by using graphite atoms that are bound to the anode. In the video that is embedded below, Huawei removes a battery from one of its phones, and places it in a prototype charging unit, which is then plugged into the wall.
There have been some advances in battery charging, with Qualcomm and MediaTek offering Quick Charge and Pump Express, respectively. The so-called 25W "Turbo Charger" that comes with the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, allows the phone to be powered up with 13 hours worth of juice after just 15 minutes of charging.

Inb4 "wow, this is the first innovative thing a Chinese company has done than stealing designs!"

pro's and cons!. Charge it super quick for maybe less life over time might be worth it has long as you can swap it out after 6-1yr+? however having to worry about needing a box to do it is little defeating the purpose for a average phone user however could be useful in other other things. I want to hear more from Samsung soon about being able double batteries capacity without increasing their sizes. Because a phone that is slim as their note/galaxy while being packed with a 8000-10000MAH would be amazing! Also they have those new battery flexible styles

From the text: "The 3000mAh cell being tested has a technology that allows it to be charged rapidly without shortening the life of the battery.

Not shortening the life of the battery + not suffering from capacity shrinkage.

As usual, when a Chinese company like Huawei tries to make new innovations, no one will give credit to them. But when it's Samsung and Apple, people will go crazy over it. This tech community is bollocks.

bcos ppl are naive.. it needs time for huawei when ppl get to know it and everybody suddenly turn and will be praising huawei .. it is like with anything in the world .. ppl are so naive .. for instance , many ppl love footballer Ronaldo bcos he is good but nobody likes other non know/famous bcos they don't know it.. And once more and more ppl get to know Huawei they will love it and those haters will quietly change mind and will be playing that they loved it and cowardly will join the crowd like nothing happened..
