MediaTek brings quick battery charging tech for smartphones

|May 30, 2016 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: As some battery demanding applications starts draining your smartphone battery quickly, the users now feel the need to re-charge the smartphone battery more often than they used to do earlier.

“The engineering challenge in the smartphone world today is satisfying consumer demand for powerful, rich multimedia features without needing to plug in their phones all day long,” said Jeffrey Ju, Executive Vice President and co-Chief Operating Officer.

To solve this problem, MediaTek today launched Pump Express 3.0, its fastest battery charging technology to date, which will charge a smartphone battery from zero to 70 percent in as little as 20 minutes.

That’s almost twice as fast as competing solutions currently on the market and five times faster than conventional charging.

The technology will be available in the MediaTek Helio series P20 with devices expected to be in the market by end of 2016.

MediaTek’s earlier fast charging technology, Pump Express 2.0, is used by major brands including Sony, Lenovo, Gionee and Meizu.

With Pump Express 3.0 users can charge for five minutes and talk for four hours, claims the company.

Pump Express 3.0 is an ultra safe charging solution with bi-directional communication and 20-plus safety and device protection systems built-in, including preventing device or charger overheating issues.

MediaTek uses its own SoC technology in combination with technology advancements from Richtek, a company MediaTek recently acquired, to control heat issues and quick charge devices.

It is also the world’s first solution to enable direct charge through Type-C USB power delivery. Direct charging bypasses charging circuitry inside the phone and prevents the device from overheating while also routing electrical current from the adaptor directly to the battery. With direct charging, MediaTek cut power dissipation by more than 50 percent from Pump Express 2.0.
