Infinix unveiled 260W wired and 110W wireless All-Round FastCharge, a new move in its pursuit of ultra-rapid charging. The novel method can fill a battery from 0% to 25% over a wire in one minute and from 0% to 100% in less than eight minutes. 0 to 100% can be reached wirelessly in 16 minutes.
Only nine months have passed since Infinix debuted the 180W Thunder Charge standard. With a 4-pump circuit design that intelligently determines power needs and distributes the necessary number of charge pumps, the new technology improves upon that by switching from a dual 8C battery to a single 12C battery.
According to the official press release, the 4,400 mAh test battery could retain 90% of its original capacity after 1,000 cycles, and the charging efficiency is 98.5%. The charger combines a high power density, compact design, and secure charging control with AHB circuit architecture. The cable is also crucial, and Infinix created one that can support up to 13A of electricity to guarantee the 260W charging.
There are fewer but wider coils in the same space with the custom-made small-sensitive coils used for 110W wireless charging, which reduces internal resistance and, as a result, lowers phone temperature rise when charging.
A 110W specialized charger with a dual-coil layout for both vertical and lateral charging is also available. The base of the platform has a fan to help with heat dissipation.

The standard allows reverse charging, bypass charging, multi-protocol charging, in addition to the obvious wired and wireless charging. Power Delivery 3.0 and other protocols are interoperable with it.
We should start using the new technology fairly soon because the company verified it will be included in the upcoming Infinix Note smartphone this year.
