Huawei’s quick charging Lithium-ion battery juices-up 10 times faster
The need for higher capacity, quick charging batteries has become a major quest for electronics manufacturers. In particular smartphone manufacturers who want to develop smartphones with quick charging, higher capacity batteries that’ll give them an edge over the competition. In this context, Huawei has been developing a lithium-ion battery that charges in just a few minutes. They showed-off this new kind of battery at the 56th Battery Symposium in Japan and it promises a lot for the coming future of mobile devices.
In a demonstration Huawei showed this advanced 3000mAh Li-ion battery which can be charged to 48% capacity in mere five minutes. Now that is a major improvement to the current breed of Li-ion batteries. The technology behind this quick charging battery is bonding of heteroatoms to molecule of graphite in anode which acts as a catalyst to speed-up charging time without decreasing the density of battery life.
Charging a 3000mAh Lithium-ion battery in just 10 minutes is what all smartphone users will relish
Huawei claims that they have performed extensive tests on this battery and the prototype can be charged over and over again without any problem. Effectively, you can charge a smartphone/tablet/smartwatch to full power in no time.
This development has been taking place at Huawei Watt Lab that is working on creating a commercially available unit of this kind of Li-ion battery. The quick charging battery will not only come handy for smartphones but also act as an important component for wearables and other electronic devices and gadgets.
