Qualcomm has announced it latest fast charging technology known as quick Charge 5. From what Qualcomm has shared, quick Charge 5 is a serious improvement from quick Charge 4.
Qualcomm has revealed that quick Charge 5 supports 100W charging. With this, users will have the option to charge their phones from 0 to 50% in only 5 minutes and 0 to 100% in less than 15 minutes. This is done while keeping the battery 10°C cooler.
The tests led by Qualcomm depend on a 4,500 mAh battery so that is the limit that can be charged to 50% in 5 minutes and to 100% in under 15 minutes.
The innovation utilizes Qualcomm Battery saver and Qualcomm smart identification proof of Adapter abilities innovation to guarantee effectiveness is accomplished and simultaneously help expand the battery life pattern of the telephone.
“Quick Charge 5, our fastest and most versatile charging solution, will enable consumers to enjoy their devices for longer periods of time, without worrying about the time required to recharge. We are proud to expand our technology portfolio and make accessible 100W+ charging a commercial reality,” said Ev Roach, VP Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
The Quick Charge 5 power bricks needs support output voltages of between 3.3 and 20 volts with 3.3 or 5 Amps of current.
“Quick Charge 5 is optimized to take advantage of both USB-PD and Type-C technologies, addressing future Android requirements. Compatibility with industry standards like USB Type-C protocols also help users benefit from Quick Charge 5’s inherent scalability and expansion into additional devices,” the company said in a statement.
Qualcomm expects Quick Charge 5 smart phones to be available as from the third quarter of 2020. The Snapdragon 865 and 865+ as of now supports this technology however this doesn’t imply that the current phones will have the option to utilize it, for that we should hold up till later in the year
