Qualcomm today introduced Quick Charge 5 as its latest quick charging technology, promising to charge phones in just five minutes from 0 to 50%. As a successor to Quick Charge 4 +, launched back in June 2017, it is reported that the latest quick commercial charging system promises up to 10 per cent cooler and up to four times faster and up to 70% more practical experience.
This also facilitates RTS 2S battery packs and is designed both for USB Type-C technologies and USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) and. Quick Charge 5 is currently in its development phase, but the latest technology-based charging technology is expected to launch beginning this year’s third quarter.
The Quick Charge 5 technology supports more than 100W charging capabilities while the 45W capacity supported its predecessor Quick Charge 4 +. Using an existing Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, the new platform also has backward compatibility with Fast Charge 2.0 and later versions as well as handsets.
The Quick Charge 5 tech is said to deliver up to a 10-degree Celsius more cooling performance on a 4,000mAh battery as a comparison with the Quick Charge 4 and Quick Charge 4 +. The new Technology is also ranked as ten times more efficient than the Quick Charge tech of the first generation.
The technology Fast Charge 5 is claimed to charge a battery in 15 minutes from zero to 100%. It is even quicker than the Quick Charge 4 +, which is claimed to charge a battery in 15 minutes from 0 to 15%. The presence of 2S battery pack support also allows smartphones manufacturers to offer faster-charging experiences even when double batteries are used.
The new system is using Qualcomm’s Battery Saver and Smart Detection of Adapter Capabilities to help prolong the battery life cycles. This also supports dual and triple charge technology and works to protect the battery with an adjustable input voltage while providing faster charging.
Initially, the Quick Charge 5 system is provided on mobile phone platforms from Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 865 +, and the Advanced and High-Tier Snapdragon next generation. Qualcomm will also, however, in the long term, allow its existence on devices that rely on the Snapdragon 700 series and earlier generations.

Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 5 may perform against 125W Flash Charge technology launched by Oppo earlier this month — which promises to charge in just twenty minutes a 4,000mAh battery. Realme has recently introduced its 125W fast charging technology UltraDART which seems to be a great look of the Oppo version.
