Qualcomm has detailed its latest fast-charging standard, Quick Charge 4+.
“Quick Charge 4+ includes all the benefits of Quick Charge 4, plus more,” said Qualcomm.
The new enhancements include:
- Dual Charge – includes a second power management IC in the device. Charging a device divides the charge current, allowing for lower thermal dissipation and reduced charge time.
- Intelligent Thermal Balancing – engineered to move current via the coolest path autonomously, eliminating hot spots for optimised power delivery.
- Advanced Safety Features – monitors the case and connector temperature levels simultaneously and helps protect against overheating.
The features allow devices to charge up to 15% faster, or 30% more efficiently, than compared to Quick Charge 4.
The first device to include Quick Charge 4+ support is the ZTE Nubia Z17, a smartphone with a 3,200mAh battery, Snapdragon 835 chip, and 8GB of RAM.
