Qualcomm has provided details of its latest charging technology, designed to act more efficiently than previous generations. The new standard, Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+, includes three central areas of improvement.
There is a revised ‘dual charge’ system, which by using two separate integrated circuits for power management is able to reduce thermal dissipation, in turn leading to short ercharge times.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ also ensures that the charge current takes the most efficient path, resulting in better thermal balancing.
Safety also has been improved, with temperatures now monitored for both the case and the connector. It is an additional safeguard that will help to reduce the chance of overheating.
