Meizu’s Super mCharge Charges 3000 mAh Battery In 20 Minutes, Introduced At MWC 2017
Meizu has unveiled its Super mCharge technology which claims to fully charge a smartphone in 20 minutes, at MWC 2017. Giving a tough fight to its competitors, the smartphone claims to be 11 times faster than the iPhone 7 Plus charging, and 3.6 times faster than the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge's fast charging feature. It features a high-voltage direct charge method, that powers up the device by up to 30 percent in just five minutes.
Its 11V/5A charging connector can provide a whopping 55W maximum power for a charge timing of just 20 minutes, significantly enhancing the user experience. Super mCharge technology uses the Charge Pump Principle. The two groups of circuits, export half of the voltage after transformation and improve the efficiency by 9%. According to Meizu, the maximum temperature reached while using Super mCharge is 39 degrees Celsius. Thus there is no heating up of the device during charging.
The cable used can carry up to 160W of power, more than 3 times the safety margin. If the company claims are to be believed, only half of the electric current is needed to reach the same power, and its innovative and energy efficient structure reduces the heat generated problems. The data cable and USB port have been redesigned to leave enough area for the cache. The company acknowledged this feat to be an important milestone, as they expect their future smartphones to come embedded with Super mCharge.
