Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has announced the third generation of its fast charging technology called Super mCharge at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Super mCharge uses a high-voltage direct charge method, which charges smartphone batteries at a quicker rate.
According to Meizu, its 11V/5A charging connector can provide a whopping 55W maximum power for accelerated charge timings of just 20 mins. The battery capacity Meizu is talking about is 3000 mAh. Oppo had shown off its Super VOOC fast charging technology at MWC 2016 which showed a 2500mAh battery sporting phone being fully charged in 15 mins flat.
Super mCharge technology uses Charge Pump Principle. This applies two groups of conversion circuits to directly output half of the voltage. According to Meizu, this increases the charging efficiency to 98 percent and ensures stable charging performance. The top temperature reached while using Super mCharge is 39 degrees C.
The data cable associated with the Super mCharge connector can support up to 160W, so as to ensure safety and durability while charging.
According to Meizu’s testing, a 3000mAh ATL battery is able to retain over 80 percent of the capacity even after 800 charge and discharge cycles, which ensures that the battery runs for over two years.
Speaking at the launch, Li Tao, supervisor of Meizu’s R&D team said, “Innovation isn’t an easy job, but we believe that success comes from passion. We’ve overcome numerous difficulties and obstacles to create the best technology for all.”
