The war of numbers is going on on several fronts, so far Realme has dominated the field of charging performance with the GT Neo5 240W (aka. GT3 240W) model working with a 240-watt GaN adapter, which charges from zero to 100% in 10 minutes, while the one just presented by Infinix All-Round FastCharge It finishes in 7.5 minutes via cable, although the test battery was only 4400 mAh, while Relame’s device was equipped with a battery with a capacity of 4600 mAh. Regardless, expressed in watts, Infinix’s solution is currently the most powerful, and they have also included a discreet 110-watt wireless option.
Without a cable, this means a charging time of 16 minutes with a capacity of 4400 milliampere hours. Two coils work in the charging pad, suitable for both horizontal and vertical orientation, and the temperature is regulated by a fan, and the device uses uniquely designed, small-sensitive coils with different architectures. They are wider than average, so less has to be crammed into a given place, which reduces resistance, along with heat generation. Infinix’s 110-watt wireless technology handles several protocols, including the extremely common Power Delivery 3.0, and charging sharing and flow-through charging are also an option; the latter two, of course, also work via cable.
The 260-watt All-Round FastCharge technology is based on the 180-watt solution presented three quarters of a year ago, but the double 8C batteries have been replaced by a single 12-amp unit with a higher discharge rate, and the voltage and current are handled dynamically by four special circuits in accordance with the energy needs of different areas.
Infinix’s gallium nitride-based system shows an efficiency of 98.5%, which keeps the original capacity of the battery at 90% after 1000 charging cycles. The charging technology uses ABH bus protocols to ensure the stability of control and communication, which is quite a creative use of technology, and the unique charging cable can handle a current of 13 amps. The technology will be available this year with the next generation of the Infinix Note series.
