Huawei Experimenting With Fast Recharging Batteries

In Five Minutes Batteries Reach 50 Percent Mark

The bane of existence for many Smartphone users is the limited battery life the devices offer.

But one company appears to be addressing the problem head on. In videos recently posted by Huawei batteries are shown to recharge to about half their capacity in about five minutes.

The videos show the batteries being charged in a time-lapse sequence with comparisons made between a typical smartphone battery and the new technology being worked on by the company.

As Computer World reported, the batteries have been created by Huawei’s research team and development subsidiary Watt Lab.

The batteries, reportedly, have been the subject of ongoing tests and the timely recharge ability is not a one-time offering but can be recharged quickly over an extended period of time.

During an industry conference last week, Huawei officials explained the battery has the same lithium ion chemistry found in batteries now but benefits from atoms of graphite bonded to the anode.
