Fast-charging tech on smartphones has been on the rise for a couple of years now. Realme recently unveiled GT 3 (GT Neo 5 in China) with 240W charging while Redmi entered the fray with a 300W solution of its own. And now, Infinix has debuted its 260W wired and 110W wireless fast charging technology as well, called “All-Round FastCharge”.
Infinix 260W Wired Charging:
According to Infinix, its 260W fast charger can fill up a 4400mAh battery from 0 to 100% in just 8 minutes. The company claims an impressive 98.5% charging efficiency here, while it also says the test battery could retain 90% of its initial capacity after 1,000 charge cycles.
Infinix’s new charging technology combines GaN (Galium Nitride) material and converts the dual 8C battery to a single 12C unit. And it includes a four-way 100W charge pump circuit design that intelligently identifies power requirements and assigns the appropriate number of charge pumps. There is also an integrated AHB (Advanced High-Performance Bus) circuit design with safe charging control.
Moving on, since a compatible cable is also required to achieve such speeds, Infinix has developed its own solution that can carry up to 13A current.

Infinix 110W Wireless Charging
As for the 110W wireless charging solution, Infinix says it can charge a 4400mAh battery in 16 minutes. It features a custom-coil design with fewer but wider coils in the same space, which reduces internal resistance. As a result, this also lowers the phone’s temperature when charging.
Additionally, this wireless charger has improved charging efficiency and increased peak power charging time. And with this charger, users can mount their phones either horizontally or vertically. In addition, it has a fan on the base for better heat control too.
Besides all this, Infinix’s “All-Round FastCharge” standard supports reverse charging, bypass charging, multi-protocol charging, and Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 as well.
