Charge a phone in less than you prepare a coffee or take a bath? Asian firms are achieving it, without this implying that mobile battery cycles are severely impacted. The fast charging of cell phone manufacturers is another competition that occurs in the world of mobile telephony, a competition in which we are the privileged ones.
At the moment, this selection considers brands such as Realme, Xiaomi, Redmi and Infinix, some of which have adopted charges of up to 240 W. Of course, that is not their limit for their future smartphones.
The Realme GT3 surprised everyone with its 240W SuperVOOC fast charging.
