I mean, why shouldn’t you care? Who doesn’t want his phone to charge within the shortest possible time?
But does it matter? Let’s find out…
If you bought an Infinix phone this year, it must have included a quick/fast charger. Though all Infinix latest products supports this fast charge feature, the question is “What is fast charge and fast charger and how does it work?”
Fast chargers allows your phone to charge over 2 times faster than the normal time. Now, that means for you to enjoy this fast charging feature, you must have a device that supports fast chargers in order to take advantage of the boost.
Side note: All latest Infinix devices (Infinix Hot 3, Infinix Hot 4, Infinix Hot S, Infinix Zero 3 and Infinix Note 3) support this feature.
If you plug a quick charger into a device that does not support it, the regulator will still prevent it from overloading your battery. You won’t harm your device, but it won’t charge any faster.
Fast chargers are real thing and not just an upsell. The fast charge feature in Infinix devices allows your phone to charge within minutes irrespective of the epileptic nature of power supply. The type of technology used varies by manufacturer.
Before I explain how quick chargers work, let’s talk a little about how chargers in general work.
When you plug your phone to a power supply, a certain amount of power flows in from the outlet, through the charger, to your phone. Your phone includes a built-in regulator to prevent pumping too much power into the battery and burning it. So, how fast your phone can charge is limited by what its internal regulators allow.
When you’re using a Quick Charge 2.0 device, all you’re really doing is opening the door a little wider to let more power in. As I established earlier, the regulator inside your phone only allows so much power in at a time. Quick Charge devices allow more than your typical chargers, without damaging the battery. While an older device might only support a 5 volt, 1 amp charger, Quick Charge devices can use a 9 volt, 2 amp charger.
Here’s what all these boils down to, using quick chargers on supported devices are better than your existing phone chargers. In fact, they’re such an obvious incremental step forward, they’ll probably be standard in a couple of years. So getting an Infinix phone allows you to enjoy the fast charge feature.
