It's been a while since we last heard about 120-watt chargers. If memory serves right, the last implementation came from Xioami. Now we see a very similar one from iQOO which can reportedly charge a 4,000 mAh battery from 0 to 100% in just 15 minutes!

So, without any further ado, let us take a closer look at it, shall we?

120-Watt Chargers May Be the Future

As time went on, our smartphones kept on becoming more and more powerful. But, unfortunately, our batteries haven't been advancing at the same pace.

A temporary solution for this seems to be fast charging. While we started by barely surpassing 10 watts, our chargers now can easily surpass 40! There is no doubt that 120-watt chargers are the next big step!

As we mentioned above, this 120-watt charger from iQOO which was revealed just a couple of days ago can charge a 4,000 mAh battery from 0 to 100% in just a bit less than 15 minutes!

And it's not the only one. We've also seen similar chargers in production from Xiaomi, Realme, and Oppo as well. So, the future looks bright indeed.

That said, making a 120-watt charger is one thing. Developing a smartphone that can withstand all that wattage for long periods of time, is another.

Rumor has it that such smartphones are going to be using a sort of liquid cooling technology which is going to be keeping temperatures under check. And that kind of makes sense as heat is a battery's worst enemy.

The only question is if that's going to make our smartphones any more susceptible to shock damage than they already are. Guess only time will tell. And when it comes, we'll make sure to let you know about it.

Wrapping Up

According to various leaks online, the IQOO phone that's going to support this kind of charging technology is expected to come out in August. But, as per usual with such news, take all of it with a grain of salt. Again, when the time comes, we'll make sure to let you know about it.
