“Following last year's Infinix 160W fast charging Concept Phone release,
Infinix 180W Thunder Charge is another industry breakthrough that
delivers ultra-fast charging technology to the public. Infinix aims to
keep improving daily efficiency through iteration and innovation of fast
charging technology so that users around the world can be the first to
experience efficient and convenient digital life,” said Manfred Hong,
Senior Product Director of Infinix.
Industry-leading 180W Charging Technology
Ultra-fast charging has never been as prevalent as it is today and with
the production of safer methods of charging at a higher voltage rate,
the technology is becoming more and more popular in mid-range devices.
Regular smartphones with fast charging features generally use batteries
with a charging rate of 1 to 3C, while 180W Thunder Charge uses
batteries with a rate of 8C, which effectively reduces the chances of
the battery overheating due to the fast charging technology. Infinix
cooperated with the world's leading battery manufacturers to develop a
new 8C battery cell, which is the maximum charging rate rechargeable
lithium battery in the industry at present. The 8C cell has lower
internal resistance when compared with the conventional single electrode
lug structure, the 8C cell has a multi-electrode lug, which reduces more
than 50%  of the internal resistance and produces less heat.
Furthermore, the 180W Thunder Charge uses two 8C-rated batteries in
series, so the charging power of each battery is only 90W while being
charged, reducing heat and increasing longevity.
180W Thunder Charge also adopts automatic bidirectional-power supply
technology to lengthen phone’s battery life by 2%  compared to
traditionally double cell battery designed phones. The automatic
bidirectional-power supply technology reduces the area of the power
supply circuit by 60%, increases the precision of the circuit layout and
saves space. The charging technology works using dynamic distribution.
Three parallel charge pumps support the highest-powered conversion yet
on an Infinix device, achieving 99%  charging conversion efficiency,
which avoids overloads and overheating. This is the pinnacle of Infinix
charging technology to date.
A Safer way to Charge
Keeping safety, a key priority, 180W Thunder Charge has 111 software and
hardware security protection mechanisms to protect smartphones,
chargers, and charging cables. The security protection is triggered
during abnormal scenarios – such as high temperature, increased voltage,
electromagnetic interference and more – to ensure the safety of the
Furthermore, 180W Thunder charge has 20 temperature sensors, which are
distributed in USB inputs, charging chips, on the battery and other
locations inside the device. The charge is monitored in real-time
through an intelligent temperature control algorithm which keeps track
of everything. While the device is charging, the smartphone’s
temperature is kept below 43 ℃ , which ensures a safe and fast
charging experience without excess heat or battery degradation.
The 180W Thunder Charge cable has a built-in Infinix special encryption
chip, which outputs 180W power transmission for an ultra-fast charge.
180W Thunder Charge can intelligently identify the cable’s power
transmission capacity and adjust accordingly. If a different cable
without Infinix’s special encryption chip is plugged into the device, it
identifies the cable and limit power to 60W/100W to ensure a safe
Powerful, Compatible & Portable
Infinix’s 180W Thunder Charge technology is one of the most advanced
solutions yet from Infinix and represents a step forward in
technological breakthroughs for smartphones in the mid-range price
bracket. Offering next-level charging speed, lower temperatures and
safer protocols, 180W Thunder Charge gives users blazing fast and
intelligent ways to power the Infinix devices.
Present in the technology is the new semiconductor material GaN, which
enables the 180W Thunder Charge to be resistant to a variety of
environments with high temperatures above 40°C. Furthermore, the charger
adapter is compatible with multiple fast charging protocols, and can
perform a maximum of 100W fast charging for most electronic devices on
the market, which include mobile phones, tablets, and laptops giving
users maximum flexibility with a one cable fits all solution. Users can
also use cables from other manufactures to charge Infinix devices up to
180W Thunder Charge has two separate charging modes, Furious Mode and
Standard Mode. Furious mode can be activated at the click of a button
giving users 180W super-fast charging.
With the world leading application of 180W fast charging technology made
available to mass produced smartphones by Infinix, it demonstrates
Infinix’s strong technical competency and innovative spirit. Presenting
this technology to the wider public at an affordable price is one of
Infinix’s core values and represents Infinix’s desire to democratize
high-end technology and make it available to everyone who wants it. Stay
tuned for our upcoming new products with 180W Thunder Charge available
in the second half of this year.
