In the two contradictory points of mobile phone performance and mobile phone life, our demand for the latter seems to be more and more urgent. On the one hand, because the mobile phone performance itself is no longer the bottleneck in daily use. On the contrary, batteries that have little progress at the technical level are increasingly affecting our experience.
Under current technology limitations, increasing battery capacity is almost the only solution, but it also spawns another very urgent need, namely charging speed. Therefore, various mobile phone manufacturers have also quickly charged, as an important highlight in their products to promote.
In the face of ever-increasing power consumption, polymer lithium-ion batteries are still a bit of a power failure. In the case of delays in inventing better alternatives, fast charging became a temporary solution. Fast charging, as the name suggests, is to increase the charging speed. The current fast charging speed is already very fast, and some mobile phones can even charge from 0% to 100% in one hour.
The implementation of fast charging technology is simply to increase the speed of charging the phone. The two charging technologies are a little different in terms of superiority.
Qualcomm Quick Charge technology relies on a special charging head to regulate electric power. The data line has little effect on fast charging technology. Therefore, the charging cable can be used with any data cable, and finally it can achieve the purpose of fast charging. Some mobile phones in the market have already supported Qualcomm QC3.0 technology.
The oppo flash charging technology relies not only on the special charging head but also on the specific data line. Therefore, OPPO’s flash charging technology only uses this mobile phone, and the scope of application is limited. When the oppo’s special charging head is used with other data lines, it will only perform normal charging and will not perform flash charging.
Qualcomm’s fast charge technology obviously has a broader application space.
All fast-charge standards on the market use charging power to shorten the charging time. When the phone’s battery, charging port, charging cable, charging adapter and charging controller meet the high-power charging requirements, the phone can be quickly charged. Some people say that fast charging will accelerate the aging of the battery, but this sentence is not completely correct. Because no matter whether it is fast charging or not, it will not have a significant impact on the aging speed of lithium ion batteries.
High temperature is the biggest killer of lithium-ion battery aging. The high power of fast charging will cause the battery to heat up in a short time. Although the non-fast charge has low power and low heat per unit time, it requires a longer power-on time. As a result, the battery heat will accumulate over time. Therefore, fast charging and non-fast charging are the difference between big fire and small fire. The difference in heat generated during charging is not enough to cause the difference in battery aging speed.
The most important thing is that the voltage and current of the fast charging of mobile phones are far from the limits that lithium-ion batteries can withstand. Therefore, the fast charging standard currently on the market will not have a significant impact on the battery life of mobile phones. However, it is worth mentioning that, under the same power, the combination of high voltage and low current is larger than the combination of low voltage and high current. Finally, from the actual use, the health of the battery has little to do with fast charging. There are many factors that affect the health of the battery. As long as the inferior charger is not used, charging and heating is one of the factors that have the least impact on the health of the battery.
Do not get extra heat from your phone’s battery. We all know that charging will heat up the battery, and high temperature is a nightmare of the battery, so don’t do anything about “fueling the fire.” It is best to keep your phone away from the heat, the stove, the hot water and the sun. In particular, be careful not to put your phone in the car in the summer, not only the temperature is extremely high, but also the risk of being stolen. In addition, it is best to keep the phone in the open position when charging, and do not block it by other items, so as not to affect the normal heat dissipation of the battery.
Like people, “eat less meals” can also make batteries healthier. Don’t wait until the battery is still a few percent or recharge after auto power off. This extremely high charging process is extremely harmful to the lithium ion battery. It is best to have a chance to charge when you have 30% to 80% of the remaining power, and try to maintain a reasonable charging depth.
Under the current mobile phone fast charging standard, users do not need to worry about the loss of the battery for fast charging, and can enjoy the convenience of fast charging with confidence. But the premise is to use quality qualified charging equipment.
To extend the life of a mobile phone battery, users must learn to charge scientifically. When the battery is too fast, don’t always pick the fault of the mobile phone hardware itself. It is the key to develop good habits.
