The San Diego giant has presented Qualcomm Quick Charge 5, the latest update of its well-known technology fast charge, and it has given us a huge surprise, not only for the recharging speed it promises, but also for its high degree of backwards compatibility, its efficiency and its working temperatures.
No walking around the branches, let’s get to the point. Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 promises charge a smartphone at 50% in just five minutes. Yes, you read correctly, and wait, this is not all, you would only have to wait ten more minutes to have it fully charged.
It is amazing to think that we could have our smartphone fully charged and ready to use in just fifteen minutes, but I know that this generates important doubts in terms of reliability and safety, so let’s solve them.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 does not reduce battery life
That’s how clear the San Diego company has been. Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 technology reaches 100 watts and is supported by a set of security and protection measures specifically designed to face all the keys that come together when we use a fast recharge, including, how could it be otherwise, high voltages and high temperatures.
Along with these protection systems, Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 technology incorporates a new circuitry and more efficient solutions that allow, in short, a fast charging peak with temperatures ten degrees lower, total stability and full reliability. And no, it does not compromise, as we have said, the life of the battery.
To further enhance its potential Qualcomm has confirmed that with this new standard manufacturers can use dual battery configurations, each with its own charge controller, and that these can be recharged simultaneously without any problem. A very interesting approach to improve autonomy and reduce the time it takes to complete a recharge.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 technology will be compatible with all chargers that support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2 or higher, and it will work smoothly on devices equipped with Snapdragon 865 SoC and higher, and also in those terminals that have a Snapdragon 700 series SoC. Good news for users who have opted for the mid-range. It will be available during the third quarter of this year.
