Supporting over 100-W charging power in a smartphone, Quick Charge 5 is engineered to allow users to charge devices from 0 to 50 percent battery power in just five minutes. This represents the fastest Android mobile phone charging capabilities available. The Quick Charge 5 charging platform also uses Qualcomm® Battery Saver and the new Qualcomm® Smart Identification of Adapter Capabilities technology to support unparalleled efficiency and help extend the battery life cycle on a users’ device.
“Quick Charge 5 will enable consumers to enjoy their devices for longer periods of time, without worrying about the time required to recharge,” said Ev Roach, VP Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We work closely with manufacturers to create industry-leading devices that meet consumers’ demand for more immersive and accessible mobile experiences.”
Affording exponential improvements from its predecessors, Quick Charge 5 is 70 percent more efficient than Quick Charge 4 and offers 10 times the power delivery of Quick Charge 1.
The Quick Charge 5 charging platform supports 2S batteries and 20 V of power delivery.
While Quick Charge 5 charges devices at blazing fast speeds, it also keeps extreme safety measures in mind. It incorporates 12 separate voltage, current and temperature protections, including USB-input overvoltage protection at 25 V and external power controls beyond 30 V. The platform also runs 10 degrees Celsius cooler than Quick Charge 4. Quick Charge 5 enables Dual/Triple Charge technology, adaptive input voltage, INOV4, Qualcomm Battery Saver and the new Qualcomm Smart Identification of Adapter Capabilities technology, which work together to maximize power transfer efficiency, increase safety and help extend the battery life cycle on a users’ device.
