The days of leaving
phones plugged in overnight
will soon be part of cybernetic prehistory.
The new ultra-fast charge manages to leave the battery to the fullest in a few minutes.
In this note, what are the best systems today and the 5 smartphones that incorporate it.
The credit for this ultra-fast running technology goes to the Chinese manufacturers, who are constantly pushing the energy limits to
extend the autonomy
of their terminals.
Until last year, smartphones with 120-watt charging were the most expeditious on the market, but now those capable of supporting
up to 240W
have arrived and the bar continues to rise.
The 5 best phones that come with a
included are: Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer, Realme GT3, Vivo IQOO11 Pro and OnePlus 10T.
Motorola Edge 30 Ultra
Moto Edge 30 Ultra.
The phone fully charges the battery in 27 minutes.
It sells for $299,000.
The charging speed, especially in the base models, does not exceed 5 watts (W).
Instead, the frontier for a high-end starts at 35W.
While the one considered ultra fast begins its rise from
When describing the charge that a mobile phone supports or that a wall charger is capable of delivering, manufacturers commonly use watts.
Which is an international unit of power with which energy consumption is measured.
To know the watts that the mobile supports, you will have to resort to a simple formula: multiply volts by amps.
These values are listed on the original charger.
For example, if 10V/4A
, it means that the supported power is 40W.
The Edge 30 Ultra, due to its technical conditions and competitive price, is considered one of the best exponents of the local high-end.
It takes 27 minutes to fill its 4,610 mAh battery with its 125W charger.
Its price is
"You can get power for the whole day in just 7 minutes thanks to the 125W TurboPower. This model includes wireless charging of up to 50W, included in the equipment box in a special bundle", highlights Pablo Brancone, product manager for Argentina .
From the firm they also maintain that it is important to use the smartphone's own charger, since it was designed and certified in each country to provide the energy that that specific product and model needs.
Regarding the best way to charge the device, they recommend "doing it when the battery percentage is low, in this way, a homogeneous consumption will be made. We are continuously charging the equipment in order to ensure that the charge is always at the top over time it will decrease in efficiency," says Brancone.
Redmi Note 12 Explorer
The recent presentation of the Redmi Note 12 Pro+, a mid-range device that is around $350.
The biggest enemy of lithium ion batteries is heat.
When the temperature rises above normal, they begin to suffer a wear and tear on their performance.
Therefore, manufacturers are looking for a method that delivers more power without raising the needle.
Some even bring sensors that
regulate the temperature
to avoid excess degrees.
“That fast charging devices are more prone to damage is a myth.
These systems are designed to adjust the charge rate as the battery fills up.
This reduces excess heat and protects the battery from any potential damage”, reinforces Fernando Sciaccaluga, Manager of OCP TECH.
The Xiaomi team is the first to introduce super charging in the mid-range.
The Explorer Edition is essentially a Redmi Note 12 Pro+ with a smaller capacity battery, but a 210W charging speed.
In less than 9 minutes it is capable of completing 4,300 mAh, a record figure for a mobile that does not exceed
The device consists of a battery divided into two that charge separately.
There are three processors that manage up to 100W of load on each.
In December it was shown in China and the global version will be presented on March 23.
The technical characteristics of the Realme GT3 that is sold at 650 dollars.
Not all devices support the same power levels.
If you don't have fast charging, using a 15W module won't help, because it won't go beyond the set limit.
On the other hand, if you have a 15W fast charge and connect with a 60W charger, it will continue to 15W.
If the phone box does not include the charging head (as is the case with Apple and Samsung) high power modules are sold, such as those offered by Anker, which come with up to 6 ports.
In general, each one offers a different power.
And although these teams take a few minutes to get from zero to one hundred, the usual thing is that if it is in red, at first, the cell phone accepts a lot of energy but later, that gear will gradually reduce.
The more the light is green, the slower it will charge what is left of it.
Until it finally reaches 100%.
This international version of the Realme GT Neo goes up to 240W and makes the 4,600 mAh battery go from 0 to 100% in
In turn, 10 seconds are enough for 3% and 80 seconds to play 20%.
The GT3 accommodates three charging chipsets that guarantee energy transfer efficiency during 98.5% of the process.
It uses a special cable and a GaN charger.
It also incorporates a liquid cooling system that covers 61.5% of the battery and allows good heat dissipation.
It is equipped with 13 temperature sensors and 60 layers of security protection.
Live IQOO11 Pro
The powerful Vivo IQOO11 Pro have a load of 200W.
They are 680 dollars.
Most off-the-shelf adapters - made from silicon - sent current to the battery continuously, raising the risk of overcharging.
The natural successor is GaN or gallium nitride, a material that is beginning to be used regularly in integrated semiconductors and that has clear advantages over silicon.
Gallium nitride stands out for being a material similar to glass and has the ability to conduct much higher voltages without this entailing an increase in the heat generated in said process.
This means that this material allows the components of the charger to be joined together in order to reduce its size without this entailing a decrease in its load capacity or a breach of established safety standards.
In 2020 Vivo launched the ultra-fast 120W charge, a pioneer in the market.
Last year, with the iQOO 10 Pro, it outdid itself with
The new version, released in China, retains these values.
Like its predecessor, it comes with a 4,700 mAh battery with 200 W fast charging and completes it in less than 10 minutes.
Wireless charging is 50W and reverse wireless 10W.
Among the novelties of this model stands out a new assembly system that includes a thermal conductive gel, a protection circuit and a battery health algorithm.
OnePlus 10T takes 18 minutes to complete the 5,000mAh.
It is 720 dollars.
Currently, there are different types of fast charging.
Its greater or lesser power is usually associated with the range of the device, since it will not only depend on the adapter but also on the compatibility of the terminal.
In addition, each manufacturer has its own fast charging technology patented and, although they are very similar to each other, they differ in terms of power and safety.
The most commons are:
Motorola: TurboPower (15 and 30W)
Xiaomi: Turbo Charge (55W, 120W and up to 200W)
Vivid: Flash Charge (33W) and Super Flash Charge (up to 120W)
OnePlus: Dash Charge (20W) and Warp Charge (30W, 50W, 65W)
Realme: SuperDart Flash Charge (50W, 65W, 120W, 150W)
OPPO: VOOC Charge (25W) and SuperVOOC Charge (50W, 65W, 120W, 150W and up to 240W)
The 10T, using SuperVOOC technology, fully charges in 18 minutes, a somewhat high number for a terminal that has almost 5,000mAh.
The advantage of SuperVOOC charging is that it does not compromise the useful life of the battery, on the contrary, it maintains the journey after 1,600 cycles.
The charger included in the box supports up to
If you use the plug, in about seven minutes you get 60% and in ten more minutes, you leave it full.
In contrast, it does not have fast wireless charging.
