Fast charging, quick charging and super charging. These are some of the buzzwords that we hear when it comes to battery charging in modern smartphones. With so many names and variations of technology being used, it’s hard to know if one is better, more stable or safer than any other one.
In an effort to help standardise fast charging technology, Huawei Consumer Business Group has announced its cooperation with TÜV Rheinland to certify Huawei’s SuperCharge technology. Certification will mark the first time an end-to- end fast-charging technology has successfully completed the rigorous tests set forth by the
world-renowned safety experts.
Testing encompasses every component, requiring adapters, IC circuits
and charging cable materials to pass safety, low temperature and thermal shock tests. Submitting itself
to the stringent oversight of TÜV Rheinland demonstrates Huawei’s continued mission to deliver the
most innovative features on the market, and highlights Huawei’s commitment to delivering not only
faster charging but more importantly safer charging.
“Over the past 145 years, TÜV Rheinland has committed itself to ensuring that complex devices and
products meet rigorous safety standards that meet consumer expectations,” said Kalyan Varma, VP of
Business Field Electrical, Products, Global of TÜV Rheinland. “With the growing demand for fast charging
solutions, we’re glad to work with Huawei to certify its SuperCharge technology using our proven testing
methods and battery expertise. In the drive for continued innovation, we must always keep consumer
safety at the forefront.”
“With each of our products, we strive not only to deliver the features and performance that consumers
are looking for – but to go beyond where our competitors are in terms of experience,” said Bruce Li, Vice
President of Handset Business at Huawei Consumer Business Group. “By working with the storied
experts at TÜV Rheinland, we’re able to deliver a device that not only offers incredibly fast charging but
does so with a safety assurance that our competitors cannot match.”
HUAWEI’s SuperCharge technology enables continuous “communication” between the device and the
charger. By monitoring every single point of the charging cycle, it is able to intelligently auto-adjust
voltage and current output to maximize charging speed based on the capacity of the phone, adapter and
cable. To keep Huawei’s fast-charging phones cool, Huawei SuperCharge uses a 4.5V/5A low-voltage
In addition, the connectors and charging jack on Huawei’s devices are programmed to automatically
suspend the supply of electricity if they come into contact with water. This intelligent safeguard is in
place to prevent short circuits and device fires.
