MediaTek Pump Express 3.0 charge a smartphone battery from zero to 70 percent within 20 minutes
MediaTek today launched its fastest smartphone battery charging technology to date – Pump Express 3.0. Pump Express 3.0 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. With Pump Express 3.0 users can charge for five minutes and talk for four hours. MediaTek Pump Express 3.0 technology will be available in the MediaTek Helio series P20 with devices expected to be in the market by end of 2016.
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. Pump Express 3.0 is 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.
MediaTek’s earlier fast charging technology, Pump Express 2.0, is used by major brands including Sony, Lenovo, Gionee and Meizu. Key improvements included in Pump Express 3.0 include higher charging speeds, higher charging efficiency and lower phone temperatures when charging. With direct charging, MediaTek cut power dissipation by more than 50 percent from Pump Express 2.0.
