What is fast charging and how does it work? - The fast charging options of Xtorm

Let's be honest, charging technology can sometimes be quite confusing. With all those terms like Power Delivery, wattages, QuickCharge, it's easy to lose track. While many of you may already be using fast charging, it often raises questions: how does it work, and is it safe for my devices? In this blog post, we dive into the world of fast charging to answer these questions and clear up the confusion.

What is fast charging and how does it work?

Fast charging is a technology that allows you to charge your phone or other device much faster than with a regular charger. This works by sending a higher amount of energy, measured in watts, from the power bank or charger to the battery. To use fast charging, your phone must support this technology. The amount of watts that a charger or power bank can deliver determines how quickly it charges. For example, an 18-watt charger charges faster than a 5-watt charger. Larger devices like laptops often require more power. Under the heading "fast charging simplified," we help you make the right choice.

Why fast charging?

One major advantage of fast charging is that it quickly gives your device a lot of battery power, ideal when you're in a hurry. Charging is especially fast at the beginning, but as the battery fills up, the speed decreases to prevent overheating and damage, ensuring efficient and safe charging of the battery.

Is fast charging bad for your phone's battery?

Fast charging is not harmful to your battery because a good charger or power bank never delivers more power than your device can handle. Even if you use a fast charger that can deliver more power than your device can handle, this is not a problem. Contrary to what people often think, fast charging can even extend the life of your phone's battery. It's best to charge a device with an internal battery as quickly and briefly as possible.

At Xtorm, we go even further in ensuring safety and quality. Our products are tested according to the 6-layer safety check. Thanks to this quality control, overheating is prevented, and you can safely charge your devices.

What fast charging options does Xtorm offer?

Xtorm offers fast charging for every type of device, regardless of the brand of your device. But how many watts do you need? We make fast charging easy for you. Below is a handy overview of the fast charging options offered by Xtorm.

- 15W FastCharge: Standard fast charging for phones

- 20W SuperCharge: Fast charging for modern phones

- 35W SuperCharge +: Fast charging for tablets

- 67W - 100W UltraCharge: Fast charging for average laptops

- 140W Xtorm UltraCharge +: Fast charging for large laptops.

Good to know: This classification is designed to help you choose the optimal wattage for your devices. A higher wattage category can also charge devices that require lower wattage. For example, the 35W SuperCharge+ category can charge both tablets and phones.

Is my phone suitable for fast charging?

Most new smartphone models nowadays support fast charging. If you have a model newer than the iPhone 8 or Samsung Galaxy S6, you can assume that your phone supports fast charging. Not sure? You can always check the specifications of your phone to see if it supports fast charging. This information is usually available on the manufacturer's official website or in the product manual. Does your phone not support fast charging? Don't worry, you can still use Xtorm chargers and power banks without any problems. Thanks to our 6-layer safety check, you can always charge safely, although it will take a bit longer to fully charge your devices.
