- Infinix has announced its all-new 260W wired and 110W wireless fast charging tech.
- The 260W fast charging tech is said to fill a battery from 0 to 100 percent in under 8 minutes.
- The company will launch a new Note-series phone with the new charging tech later this year.
Ever since Realme unveiled its 240W fast charging tech, we have constantly been witnessing more and more companies come up with their own sets of fast charging technologies beyond the 200W mark. Infinix has now announced its own ultra-fast charging solution, which has made it the brand with the fastest charging smartphone tech till date, at least on paper. The brand has introduced its 260W wired and 110W wireless fast charging technology and has showcased the capabilities of the new charging tech as well.
Infinix 260W wired, 110W wireless fast charging technology details
Infinix claims that the new fast charging technology is aimed at providing an all-round fast charge solution, hence the brand’s decision to come up with such ultra-fast wired, as well as wireless fast charging speeds. The new fast charging solution is claimed to fill a battery from 0 to 25 percent in just one minute (wired) and 0 to 100% in under 8 minutes. If, however, a user wants to wirelessly charge their device from 0 to 100%, the same can be achieved in 16 minutes.
The new 260W tech builds on the brand’s existing 180W Thunder Charge tech, and has upgraded from a dual 8C battery to a new single 12C battery with a 4-pump circuit design that is said to intelligently identify power requirements and allocate the number of charge pumps needed.
The official press release for the new charging tech suggests that the charging efficiency is 98.5 percent, and a 4,400mAh battery (the one that has been used for the tests) can retain 90 percent of its initial capacity after 1,000 cycles. The charger makes use of a combination of GaN material and AHB circuit infrastructure with high power density. The cable can carry a current of up to 13A to make sure that the device receives the designated 260W charge.
As for the 110W wireless charging, it is developed by using custom-made small-sensitive coils with different architectures. The brand has also announced a custom-made charger with a dual-coil design, which will charge both in vertical and in horizontal orientation. The charging station also has a fan for heat dissipation.
Infinix has confirmed that the new charging tech will arrive with an upcoming Infinix Note series smartphone later this year.
