For both manufacturers and consumers, fast battery charging has become a key and attractive feature when choosing a mobile phone. Nowadays, there’s a general expectation that a desirable smartphone should have a charging capacity of at least 33W, with higher capacities increasingly preferred. Many manufacturers have pushed the boundaries of fast charging to impressive levels.

Among the leaders in this trend are Xiaomi, Realme, iQOO, and OnePlus. These companies have integrated fast charging capabilities into many of their devices, especially their flagship models. There is already speculation about 300W fast charging, which is claimed to be capable of charging a mobile phone battery from 0 to 100% in just 5 minutes. However, no commercial model with this charging capability has appeared yet.

However, several models exceed the 100W mark, with some even doubling it. Let’s explore the smartphones that feature the fastest charging capabilities on the market amidst this ongoing fast-charging race that has taken over the megapixel competition from a few years ago.

According to the company, this technology allows charging from 1% to 20% in just 80 seconds. Additionally, a full 100% charge takes less than 10 minutes.

300W Coming Soon

Realme has revealed its 300W fast charging technology, promising to charge your phone from 1% to 100% in just 5 minutes, a feat that seemed astonishing just two years ago. Although this technology is not yet available in any of the brand’s models, it is expected to debut this year in a smartphone likely to be crowned the fastest-charging mobile phone in the world.

Fast Charging Tips and Tricks:

  • Plug into the wall: Wall outlets provide more power (amperage) compared to computer USB ports, resulting in faster charging.
  • Airplane mode advantage: Put your phone in airplane mode to stop battery-draining functions like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi while charging.
  • Turn off completely (if possible): Turning off your phone completely allows for faster charging as no background processes are using power.
  • Reduce phone usage while charging: The screen and processing power drain the battery, so minimize phone use while it’s plugged in.
  • Consider cable quality: A thicker gauge cable (usually 24 gauge) can handle more amperage compared to standard cables, allowing for faster charging.
  • Keep it cool: Heat slows down the charging process. Avoid using your phone while charging, and remove any cases that might trap heat.
  • Fast charger compatibility: Ensure your charger and cable are compatible with your phone’s quick charging technology (e.g., USB-C Power Delivery).
  • Balance battery life and heat: While fast charging is convenient, it can generate more heat, potentially reducing battery lifespan slightly over time. Use it strategically when needed.
