Dubbed Supercharge all we really know about the tech is that Huawei has filed a trademark application for it. But it would make sense that the outfit would come up with something about now. Huawei’s P9 smartphone, which was otherwise great was ranked down because of its battery charging tests – taking two hours to fully charge up. Most phones with fast charging do it in 90 minutes or less.
The most common tech out there is Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology, although there are a few propriatary systems. Oppo has also got a new fast charging system in development which it calls Super VOOC. It can VOOC a 2,500mAh battery from zero to 100 percent charge in 15 minutes, and it’s expected to be in a phone before the end of 2016.
We know Huawei has been working on a quick charge method and its battery division revealed a prototype system that promised to add 50 percent power to a 3,000mAh cell in only five minutes. It even showed a video of the beastie in action. That particular tech was based on changes have been made to the battery and the charger.
The trademark application, which was filed in Europe, contains a list of what it calls “goods and services.” These include smartphones and smartwatches, along wth batteries and battery chargers – so more than just your average phone. .
