Huawei Teases Su­per Quick-Charge Bat­tery Tech

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

Since the ad­vent of smart­phones nearly a decade ago, one prob­lem con­tin­ued to plague such devices from day one: short bat­tery life. Un­like fea­ture phones, most smart­phones did not have the ad­van­tage of long-stay­ing bat­tery life like their pre­de­ces­sors did. Tech­nol­ogy has come a long way since then, with com­pa­nies de­sign­ing new phones that ei­ther have bat­ter­ies that give them more than just a sin­gle day's worth of use, or a bat­tery that can be rapidly charged.

In the case of Huawei, the com­pany ac­tu­ally went with the lat­ter op­tion, and it's done




DE­CEM­BER 2015 so with a fair amount of gusto. The Chi­nese com­pany re­cently demon­strated one of its new su­per fast-charg­ing, 3,000mAh Lithi­u­mion bat­ter­ies, which can be charged from zero to 48 per­cent in just five min­utes.

“Huawei is con­fi­dent that this break­through in quick-charg­ing bat­ter­ies will lead to a new rev­o­lu­tion in elec­tronic devices, es­pe­cially with re­gard to mo­bile phones, elec­tric ve­hi­cles, wear­able devices, and mo­bile power sup­plies. Soon, we will all be able to charge our bat­ter­ies to full power in the time it takes to grab a coffee!” said a Huawei rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

First un­veiled dur­ing the 56th Bat­tery Sym­po­sium in Ja­pan, the pro­to­type bat­tery isn't the stan­dard Lithium-ion bat­tery one would find in­side a cur­rent smart­phone. Mind you, th­ese par­tic­u­lar bat­ter­ies are still plagued with their own set of prob­lems, and are far from be­ing com­mer­cially ready for the con­sumer mar­ket. Huawei said that while the pro­to­type is able to charge up ex­tremely quick, it still suf­fers from some rather com­mon prob­lems, such as de­creased bat­tery life­span and en­ergy den­sity.
