Yesterday I had more about how sudden temperature changes can affect our tablets and smartphones. In the article, we mentioned how fast charging technologies can be one of the reasons for overheating of these components within the terminals which can lead to serious failures and accidents from consideration as for example, explosions. However, this novelty is has installed with force between them devices of crowd of manufacturers in a try by solve, of way partial, an of them large deficiencies that can find currently in the majority of terminals: it autonomy. This, along with the creation of batteries of higher capacity, is have developed in them two large bazas used by some actors of the sector.
Already is from them own companies, or by others signatures that is responsible of provide to them future models of them technological of some of their components, the load fast is is consolidating each time more while also have some disadvantages as for example, the creation of a universal. Then you will have more on the news that already could see in this field to end of 2016 and that could end by implement is of way definitive in 2017. Is try of an element that to short term end extending is not only between phablets and smartphones in sense strict, but also to others formats of greater size?
1. Dash Charge
Chinese companies are still going strong not only creating terminals trying to approach in terms of quality of their rivals from other areas such as Japan or South Korea, but also in the incorporation of other focused elements, in this case, in the battery. OnePlus presented in late summer of last year Dash Charge, that among its strengths not only allowed, in appearance, to charge the device by 60% in just half an hour, but the fact that it is capable of solving one of the biggest problems derived from more intense current flow: overheating. How is this phenomenon prevented? Not increasing the voltage supported by the battery and Chargers but the the current.
Developed by Huawei, is one of the most striking one of the Crown jewels of the company also aroused great interest in the last weeks of 2016: Mate 9. Among the highlights of this technology are an autonomy of approximately 2 days after use, its accompaniment to a battery whose capacity round the 4,000 mAh and finally, SuperSafe, a function for monitoring parameters as the temperature of the device, or the intensity of the current.
3. fast-charging of Qualcomm
The signing of processors also launched the creation of rapid charging for phablets and conventional smartphones technologies. The new version, the 4.0 and that is what has given that talk in the last few months of last year, would be available only at terminals that have a Snapdragon 830processor. Is currently undergoing tests in some Asian markets such as India. However, he has also called attention to arouse suspicions of Google.
Fourthly, we have the Samsung bet in this field. Used in models as the Galaxy S7 and already present for a few years, stands out by filling half of the battery in 30 minutes, and especially, by having a Wireless charging. One of the most characteristic elements of the technology developed by the South Korean firm is the fact that it can be enabled or disabled at will through their own settings of the device.
We continue with the stake of Motorola. Criticized by some in the sense that it is not capable of putting aside the overheating, its creators claim that TurboPower produces precisely the opposite effect, refrigerate it. As is the case with Huawei, it is equipped with large-sized batteries that often exceed the 3500 mAh. Its biggest limitation comes from the side of processors, since it is only compatible with terminals that have one of the last members of the Snapdragon family, in particular, the 810.
We conclude with the tool launched by OPPO. The Chinese firm, which managed to be among the 10 with further implementation of the world already it was focus of information during MWC held in Barcelona last year. SuperVOOC is defined, according to its creators, by charging batteries 2500 mAh in a quarter of an hour. However, its greatest limitations come with compatibility, since it is only possible to use it in those phablets created by the company that have ports USB C and some with Micro USB.
As you have seen, and as I have mentioned at the beginning, during 2017 we will find how technologies of fast charging that we saw last year will have to compete against new ones. Do you think that there are still some aspects that improve on them so that they are more competitive and extend? Do you think that advances should occur more broadly as for example, with the incorporation of new functions in operating systems? You have available more information as for example, some tests to more powerful batteries 2016 in phablets, tablets and smartphones so you can say to yourselves.
