Tested phones with the fastest charging

For the last couple of years fast charging technology has changed. Manufacturers advertise to the whole world of smartphones with the power supply 30, 40, 50 and even 65 watts. This is not the limit.

The majority of technology fast-charge , protected by patents, so the phones still apply alternative and a slower way of eating that is compatible with non-original cables and chargers. However, large companies put in the box to the smartphone charger that corresponds to its maximum capabilities: acquiring a new device, you in most cases will be able to immediately benefit from wireless high-speed power.

Given the relevance of this characteristic, the staff of the site AndroidAuthority learned most rapidly charging the phones and have tested the batteries to find out which devices have really high rates of amperage and voltage.

Note: to determine the maximum charging speed adaptive power supply has been disconnected.

Smartphone с самой быстрой зарядкой в 2020

If we talk only about phones released in 2020, a leader in the rating AndroidAuthority becomes Realme X50 Pro 5G with the power supply 65 watts. A big role in his high appreciation of the plays and the battery capacity, but here it should be noted that the capacity of the battery X50 Pro is almost the same as in Oppo Find X2 Pro, which is on the second place of the list. Both models are charged with maximum power of 65 watts, but as for Find X2 Pro, it takes 10 minutes to go from a charge level of 99% to 100% (the experts have not found a way to drip off charging Trickle Charging, to improve the time performance).

Mi 10 Pro from Xiaomi is ranked third. The smartphone provides a 50-Watt wired charger for the battery capacity of 4500 mAh. It is important that in this device, implemented a wireless power at a power of 30 watts. Thus, to fully charge Mi 10 Pro in the shortest possible time, it is not necessary to use the cable.

Rating continue Realme X3 SuperZoom, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. They are also characterized by high energy performance using a wired charging at 30 watts.

At the battery capacity is most impressive the flagship of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It uses a non-removable battery with a 5000 mAh. Tests show that when using the supplied charger 25 watts the way from 0 to 100% takes about an hour. This is an incredible figure for such a huge battery, and without the use of additional charging accessory 45 W, which are purchased separately.

If included in the rating of smartphones released in the second half of 2019, the list will be dominated by devices associated with the company BBK Electronics – OnePlus, Vivo and Oppo, including the sub-brand Oppo Realme.

Only 3 of the 10 most rapidly charges the phones are made by brands not associated with BBK, namely Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 9 and Galaxy S20 Ultra. As for Mi 9, he has not the most high-speed charging technology from the point view pure power (only 27 watts), but the little battery at 3300 mAh implies that for filling in a lot of time is still required.

the above Image also illustrates how little progress is made Huawei in the area of charging. At the end of 2018, the company made a splash, releasing Mate Pro 20 with a feed speed of 40 watts. Since then, high-profile success was not, apparently Huawei are satisfied with the current standard, and because of its recent products is the 14-th and 15-th lines. However, the full charge time is just over an hour – in any case, a decent figure even by the standards of 2020.

As will be further development of fast charging?

Сегодня скоростная зарядка – одна из ключевых функций. Вдобавок к ней the flagship of theские смартфоны при наличии 5G предлагают увеличенный объем аккумулятора для продления связи. Логично предположить, что производители будут и дальше работать над увеличением скорости зарядки. Известно, что в этом году нас ждут серьезные обновления: у Oppo, IQOO и Realme есть подтвержденные планы по запуску технологии с показателями тока, повышенными до 120-125 Вт.

We hope that more companies will move to a free USB-PD, since the patenting of technologies prevents the spread of an accelerated charge. The adoption of universal standards not only ensure interoperability of the various devices, but will also contribute to a reduction in production waste. Fortunately, Oppo Realme confirmed that their new products will support USB PD and Qualcomm Quick Charge.

Earlier, the Xiaomi representative said that the implementation of the charging capacity of 100+ watts is technically complex: the root of the problem partly lies in the wear of the battery. In an interview with AndroidAuthority representatives from Oppo has confirmed that using their technology SuperSpeed charging after 800 cycles of charge/discharge of the initial capacity mobile battery is about 80%. These changes take about 2-3 years. Meanwhile, the charger 65 W used in the Oppo Ace 2, as according to the manufacturer, after the same 800 cycles wears out the battery is only 10%. This suggests that it may not hurry to buy one of the first phones with support for power over 100 watts: it makes sense to wait for second generation technologies, which will be less traumatic for batteries.

Еще недавно технологию fast-charge получали только ведущие смартфоны от крупных компаний и лишь немногие мобильники среднего ценового уровня. Постепенно функция дошла и до более дешевых аппаратов, например, Huawei P40 Lite и Poco M2 Pro (40 и 33 Вт соответственно). Можно с уверенностью сказать, что в дальнейшем к ним присоединится еще больше недорогих устройств. В пользу этой идеи говорит и тот факт, что среди бюджетников появляются аппараты с поддержкой 5G, для которой характерен повышенный расход аккумулятора.

В 2020 году произойдет скачок в развитии технологии fast-charge

Another area where there have been significant advances, is adaptive. Oppo announced the transition to a new level of wireless power, where the rate of energy transfer is 65 watts. Huawei, OnePlus and Xiaomi is also actively advertise wireless charging 30 to 40 watts in some of its devices, which is further evidence of progress in this area.

In the future, large batteries only to spur manufacturers to develop fast charging: if you have 6-7 thousand mAh who wants to wait two hours until the indicator light displays the coveted 100%?
