Apple launched fast-charging support for iPhones in 2017 but till date, the iPhone maker has only been including chargers capable of a 5W power delivery.

We take a look at some of the best fast-charging technologies available in the market today.

Qualcomm Quick Charge: Once the default standard in the smartphone industry, chipset making giant Qualcomm’s proprietary Quick Charge technology is a key reason why fast charging became so popular.

Qualcomm’s latest 4.0+ revision of Quick Charge is compatible with “Power Delivery”, thus, allowing for faster-charging speeds and a wider range of support.

LG G and ThinQ series flagship phones incorporate this fast-charging technology.

Huawei P30 Pro: The device packs in an enormous 4,200mAh battery inside and it supports 40W fast wired charging. Fast charging on the device is referred to as “SuperCharge” — which has Huawei’s proprietary technology included.

The smartphone also offers reverse wireless charging, which is quite slow at the moment.

OnePlus 7 Pro: The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with the biggest capacity battery and fastest charging technology of any OnePlus phone. Given the 90Hz refresh rate display, the battery depletes quickly but the company’s in-house “Warp Charge” that delivers a 30W charge promises zero to 50 per cent juice in about 25 minutes.

The decision by the Boris Johnson government came despite pressure from the US and a section of Conservative MPs on grounds of national security. While a Trump administration official said the US “is disappointed” with the decision, Republican and former Speaker of the US House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, described it as a “strategic defeat” for his country.

On the other hand, China had warned Britain that there could be “substantial” repercussions to other trade and investment plans had the company been banned outright.

Huawei welcomed the decision.
