If you're bothered by your cell phone battery running out of power too fast, and taking too long to recharge, there's hope on the horizon.
At the recent Mobile World Congress, Chinese smartphone maker Meizu demonstrated its new Super mCharge quick-charge technology that fully-charged a 3,000mAh battery in only 20 minutes. (For comparison purposes, this is a touch larger than the iPhone 6s battery, although most Android batteries hold a capacity of 1,800mAh.) It delivered a 60 percent charge in just 10 minutes. This compares favorably to Qualcomm's newly-announced Quick Charge 4.0 technology in their Snapdragon 835 processor, that can provide a five-hour charge in five minutes.
The downside is when that horizon nears, since the Super mCharge won't be available for the market for another one to two years.
