Infinix announced flagship phone coming later this year will feature 180W Thunder Charge tech

Earlier this week, Infinix teased their future 180W Thunder Charge system, now the brand has provided further information. Thunder Charge, which will debut on an unnamed flagship phone later this year, will arrive to the market commercially, unlike the 160W Ultra Fast Charge system we saw last year (which was only a concept).

The new 180W charger is developed to charge a 4,500mAh battery to 50% in under 4 minutes. There will be a Furious Mode, which charges at the fastest possible rate, and a Normal mode which is still quick but maintains cooler temperatures, similar to the Infinix Note 12 VIP.

Infinix provided in-depth information on the Thunder Charge mechanism. Two 8C batteries will be installed in a series so that each can carry 90W of power. There are several protections and efficiency upgrades in place to reduce heat generation because that is still a lot.

First, Infinix developed a multi-electrode lug design in collaboration with top battery producers, which lowers the battery’s internal resistance by more than 50%. Three charge pumps with a 99 percent conversion efficiency supply those two batteries (the best that Infinix has used so far). These measures reduce the amount of heat produced, but they are insufficient to guarantee safe operation.

There are 111 hardware and software security mechanisms in the Thunder Charge system. In the event that anything goes wrong, the charging process will halt. They look out for things like excessive temperature, increased voltage, electromagnetic interference, and so on.

The USB port, charging chips, battery, and other important areas are all monitored by 20 temperature sensors. The method seeks to maintain the phone’s temperature below 43°C to minimize battery deterioration.

Thunder Charge will utilize a unique encryption chip to check the legitimacy of the charging cable in order to make sure it is capable of handling the load. Other cables may be used to charge other devices; however, in those instances, the power is limited to 60W or 100W. Similar technology is used by USB Power Delivery to evaluate the capability of the cable.

Thunder Charge has received a TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast-Charge System certification. Infinix’s 180W rapid charging mechanism will be available on its first smartphones in the second half of this year.
