Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 to support 28W
 

Quick charge 4.0 might have the capacity to provide up to 28W of power.

In general, the development regarding batteries has come to a halt. However, one thing that is being worked on is the rate of charging. It has recently been rumoured via fudzilla that Qualcomm is introducing Quick charge 4.0 very soon.

This battery will be able to provide a whooping amount of 28W of energy. When brought in comparison, the Quick Charge 3.0 gives out merely 18W of energy. The Huawei Super charge performs comparatively better and gives 22.5W.

Oppo stands at 20W. It is rumoured that Google is pushing manufacturers to use the Power Delivery standard especially for those phones which are using USB Type C. As a matter of fact Google’s Pixel phones do support it but give only at 18W.

The standard goes up till 100 W so actually using such a battery in a phone may be very risky. Quick Charge will be giving charge at 5V or 9V. We do not see any mention of 12 V or 20V options. That isn’t much of a problem since charging at a high voltage is relatively an easy way to charge.

However when you convert that to a voltage a lithium battery consumes things may go bad. A lot of heat may be produces causing damage. Huawei Super Charge and Oppos’ VOOC give a low voltage of 5V. The high current goes up to 5A.

In fact Super Charge is also capable of halting voltage conversion when a heat flow comes. Quick Charge 4.0 is expected to include the INOV. This will give the best voltage for the battery. It can deliver between 3.6V to 20V in just 0.2V steps. INOV will definitely improve that.
