Quick Charge 5 – the answer to Android battery life issues

Own an Android phone? Having issues with how long your batter life lasts or how quickly your smartphone charges? Have no fear, Qualcomm have introduced new technology which can see your Android battery refill from flat to 50% in just five minutes.

The US chip manufacturer has the solution to your Android battery woes and can see your smartphone rejuvenate itself with just five minutes of charge.

Smartphone manufacturers like OnePlus and Huawei have already tried to reduce the charge time on their flagship Android devices, but nothing seemingly compares to the new technology introduced by Qualcomm.

Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 5 technology is the world’s first commercially viable fast charging platform to support more than 100W charging power in a smartphone. Most premium Android phones ship with 20-25W chargers so this new system could be up to five times faster at giving your device a hefty battery boost from just a few minutes plugged into the wall.

“Quick Charge 5, our fastest and most versatile charging solution, will enable consumers to enjoy their devices for longer periods of time, without worrying about the time required to recharge,” said Ev Roach, VP Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We are proud to expand our technology portfolio and make accessible 100W+ charging a commercial reality.

“We work closely with manufacturers to create industry-leading devices that meet consumers’ demand for more immersive and accessible mobile experiences,” says Qualcomm.

Along with being faster, Quick Charge 5 is also 70 percent more efficient than Qualcomm’s previous Quick Charge 4 system. And don’t worry about your phone melting when it’s being boosted as Qualcomm is boasting that despite the blazingly fast charging speeds, it also keeps extreme safety measures in mind.

In fact, Quick Charge 5 incorporates 12 separate voltage, current and temperature protections, including USB-input overvoltage protection at 25V and external power controls beyond 30V. It also runs 10 degrees Celsius cooler than Quick Charge 4.

So when will you see this technology in your smartphone?

Well, actually pretty soon as Qualcomm says that Quick Charge 5 is currently sampling with customers and is expected to appear in commercial devices in Q3 2020.

Quick Charge 5 is supported on the latest Snapdragon 865 and 865 Plus processors which are already powering many of the latest premium Android flagships.
