Technology fast charging or fast charging is increasingly mushrooming in various smartphone brands. However, as technology develops, it turns out that HP fast charging is getting faster with an average of up to 34W.
According to a report from Counterpoint Research, the global average for technology fast charging HP has grown from 18W in Q1 2018, to 30W in Q1 2022, and currently sits at 34W in Q1 2023.
This increase in charging speeds is largely due to increased consumer demand for longer battery life, which has soared with the widespread adoption of 5G networks and improvements in camera, display and processor technology.
Chinese smartphone manufacturers are leading the fast charging race, with an average fast charging power of just over 50W. These brands are leveraging fast charging as a unique selling proposition to attract customers.
For example, Realme and Xiaomi both offer devices that have a charging power of above 200W. In addition, both Xiaomi and Oppo recently demonstrated HP with 300W fast charging capabilities that promise full charging in just a few minutes.
In contrast, companies like Apple and Samsung have adopted a more cautious approach to fast charging, prioritizing battery safety and overall performance.
For example, Apple’s iOS 13 update introduced an optimized battery charging feature that slows down the rate of battery aging by reducing the time iPhone spends fully charged.
Google’s Adaptive Battery feature on Android also learns a user’s daily charging routine to slow down battery drain. Samsung is reportedly working on a new battery technology inspired by electric vehicle technology.
Quoted from Telset from Gizmochina on Monday (24/07/2023), the new battery technology is expected to increase the battery life of the upcoming Galaxy S24 series.
Report from Counterpoint it also highlights changes in user behavior, stating that approximately half of all smartphone users spend at least 5 hours daily on mobile devices.
They spend their time on a variety of activities including social interaction, web browsing, content streaming and gaming. These findings signal the potential for further innovation in battery technology and the impact this can have on the overall user experience.
