On Tuesday at MWC 2017, a smartphone manufacturer Meizu has unveiled “Super mCharge” which is its latest fast-charging solution.
The charging connector has a maximum power of 55w for an accelerated full charge time of 20 minutes. It is a major innovation among the existing direct charging solutions that enable batteries to top up at a much faster rate. It will provide a significant enhancement in user experience.
Li Tao, Supervisor of Meizu’s R&D team said in a statement,'”Super mCharge’ is not only the fastest charging technology, but the safest one of all”.
According to Meizu, Super mCharge uses charge pumps, utilizing “two groups of conversion circuits to directly output half of the voltage.” The technique increases the charging efficiency drastically, bringing it up from 9% to 98%. Meizu found that the battery temperature topped out at 102.2 degree Fahrenheit (39 degrees Celsius) while using the fast charging method, which should keep handsets from blowing up.
