Technology is advancing rapidly, especially in the realm of charging. 

High-wattage fast charging systems are now achieving speeds that were previously unimaginable.

Smartphone companies are increasing battery capacities, with models like the Realme GT Neo 5, launched last February, supporting up to 240W fast charging. 

This technology claims to fully charge the battery from zero to 100 percent in less than 10 minutes.

Realme has confirmed that they are working on 300W charging for upcoming models, while iQoo 11S will support up to 200W, Infinix Zero Ultra 5G up to 180W, and Realme GT Neo 3 up to 150W. These are among the fastest-charging phones available in the market.

Many smartphone users are concerned about the implications of such fast charging. Let's explore the advantages and disadvantages of these high-capacity charging technologies:


  1. Speed: High-wattage support enables incredibly fast charging, potentially going from 0% to 100% in minutes. This is convenient when you're in a rush or have limited time.
  2. Less Downtime: Faster charging means less waiting time for your device to charge, enhancing your overall user experience, especially for heavy smartphone users.


  • Battery Health Concerns: Fast charging can generate more heat, which may accelerate battery degradation over time. However, advancements in battery and charging technology aim to address this issue.
  • Compatibility: High-wattage charging requires compatible hardware, including chargers, cables, and devices. Using incompatible accessories can pose safety risks like overheating or damage to the device.
  • Cost: Advanced fast-charging technologies often come with a higher price tag, not only for the devices themselves but also for compatible accessories like chargers and cables.

Meanwhile, fast-charging technologies like 200W or 300W offer significant benefits in terms of speed and convenience. 

However, users should also be mindful of potential drawbacks such as battery degradation and compatibility issues.
