The company will announce a mobile phone that uses the fast charging technology in late December says Dr Yangxing Li, Chief Scientist at Watt Laboratory,

Huawei last year demonstrated one battery with a 600 mAh capacity that can be charged to 68% capacity in two minutes,and another with a 3000 mAh capacity and an energy density above 620 Wh/L, which can be charged to 48% capacity in five minutes. This would allow ten hours of phone call on Huawei mobile phones but requires a new higher current charger architecture.

To avoid the problems Samsung faced with its lithium ion batteries, these quick charging batteries underwent multiple rounds of testing and have been certified by Huawei’s terminal test department.

The technology is ten times faster than traditional techniques and uses a modified graphite anode. The company expects to expand the technology to electric vehicles, wearable devices, and mobile power supplies.
