Meizu today at MWC 2017 unveiled the Meizu mCharge technology. As per the company their mCharge technology provides the fastest charging solution as of now – it can charge a 3000 mAh smartphone in just about 20 minutes.
Usually on an average a smartphones takes 2 to 3 hours to charge and even with fast charging it takes somewhere around 1 hour. With Meizu’s mCharge technology a smartphone with a 3000 mAh battery can be fully charged – i.e. 0% to 100% in just 20 minutes.
The company also revealed that a 5 minute charge will bring battery level to 30%, 10 minutes charge to 60% and a 15 minutes charge will bring battery level to 85%. Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology makes use of 18W power where as the Meizu mCharge will use 11V/5A charger – using 55W power.
Meizu spent over a year developing this technology – they claim it is more efficient than Quick Charge 3.0. Their technology is safe, while charging the max battery temperature tops at 39 degrees (in room temperature 22 degrees), the same case scenario with Quick Charge 3.0 the battery temp reaches to 44 degrees.
The Meizu mCharge will use a new data cable to carry up to 160W power. Though the mCharge technology is ready, the company has not yet disclosed when they will start using the same on their smartphones.
