Smartphones to be fully charged in 5 minutes, Cambridge University researchers bring new cheap charging system
Every smartphone company is experimenting with smartphone batteries and charging technology. We’ve already heard of Xiaomi’s 200W HyperCharge technology, which will fully charge the phone at the moment. But this time a team of researchers from Cambridge University is going to come up with a battery charging system that can fully charge a smartphone battery in 5 minutes. The research team is led by Dr. Asher Rao of Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge. The researchers said they were testing the charging and discharging behavior of lithium-ion batteries and developing a mechanism to control the charging speed, which would allow the battery to charge super-fast.
Researchers at the University of Cambridge claim that their new charging technology will come on a low budget and increase the battery’s charging cycle while avoiding overheating. This charging system will be available for sale in the market in the next few years.
Xiaomi’s 200W HyperCharge technology fully charges the phone in 6 minutes
Xiaomi unveiled the 200-watt hypercharge wired technology last month. The technology enabled the Mi 11 Pro, which comes with a 4,000 mAh battery, to fully charge in 8 minutes. Not only that, the phone was 0-50 percent charged in 3 minutes.
Again, Xiaomi has introduced 120 watt hyper charge wireless (wireless) technology. Xiaomi claims that the technology will fully charge a 4,000 mAh battery in 15 minutes.
