At the 56th Battery Symposium in Japan, Huawei showed off their new quick charging lithium-ion batteries that the company claims can be charged to half the capacity in just a few minutes. "Using next generation technology, these new batteries have achieved a charging speed 10 times faster than that of normal batteries," the Chinese company said in a press release.
Huawei demoed the technology by showing off a 600 mAh battery that charged to 68% capacity in just two minutes, as well as a 3000 mAh battery that charged to 48% capacity in five minutes.
The company also explained the behind-the-scenes working of the technology. "According to Huawei, the company bonded heteroatoms to the molecule of graphite in anode, which could be a catalyst for the capture and transmission of lithium through carbon bonds. Huawei stated that the heteroatoms increase the charging speed of batteries without decreasing energy density or battery life."
This is pretty cool. Good job, Hauwei.
O trully would like to see it!!! and keep the big batteries in
"...increase the charging speed of batteries without decreasing energy density or battery life." HOLY MOLY, now that's called Tech.
