A couple questions. Did it take 240W from the wall or, did it put 240W into the battery (efficiency losses)? For how long did it charge at 240W, if it did? 5min?
The way charging speed is increasing, looks like in few years that will cross 1 kilowatt charging speed.
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2023No temperature info. Obviously did not remain below 43 celsius. Still better than having 43 celsius for 5 from 10 minutes of full charge time than having a 2-3 hours of 40 celsius full charge any other phone.
Where to buy it.I'm from pakistan.If anyone have idea plzz tell me.
Reading this on my 23W Pixel 7 Pro at 22% battery plugged to a 45W charger, says "Charging Rapidly, full in 1 hour 43 minutes." 😓
rosesarerosie, 16 Sep 2023Meanwhile Samsung needs an hourYou wish it was only an hour.
Why is Xiaomi 11t pro not in the list? My one charges to 90% in 18 minutes flat
The charger time looks like the time that went so fast😞
Really fast charging time for Realme GT5. But, I want 5000 Watt, Speed of Light Chatge. Like, blink of an eye charge.
you have to suffer, 16 Sep 2023giving battery a warranty would take so much effort on them.But then the end users have to live with the stress of the unknown...

Imagine the battery in a car that will exposed to the road heat & sun in the summer.

As much as I like the fast charging, I think full charge in 30 mins is a sweet spot.
In my opinion, this 240w charging is a good Innovation but nothing too extraordinary as these days companies are only focusing on specs sheet. 100w charging,150w charging, 240w charging. Similar for RAM, 12gb, 15gb, 24gb etc..
I think the biggest Innovation would be a proper and great in-display camera which I doubt will happen anytime soon considering how lethargic these phone companies have become.
the tech is impressive, it is awesome to see the improvements. My phone charges at 67W and I'm still impressed at how fast that is. I can top my battery while I take a bath and get ready to get out.
My only concern is heat, in this case I have a metal top where I charge the phone and I hardly reach 36° celsius at the highest point, but without it and in a warm place I could reach beyond 40°C. That is what actually damage the batteries, heat, not the charging speeds per se.

But i think also that charging tech is very mature now.
No need to worry about that imo.
My Edge 40 Pro is cooler while charging then G100 for example.
JoXim, 16 Sep 2023You can do that just by using slower chargers for example.

So it'll be convenient if the option exists right in phone itself
