If you have used Huawei’s mobile, you may know or heard about Huawei’s SuperCharge Technology. Huawei partners with TÜV Rheinland to get SuperCharge certified, thus making it the first time that an end-to-end fast-charging technology has successfully completed the rigorous tests set by TÜV Rheinland.
The SuperCharge charges the phone at low voltage (4.5v) and a high current (5A). This combination ensures that the phone battery will not heat up.
To ensure safety, the SuperCharge uses SCP (Smart Charge Protocol) to monitor the charging and adjust it accordingly. It allows direct communication between the phone and the charger.
Here is how SuperCharge works. I am expecting Huawei Mate 10 to use this technology.

Huawei Partners with TÜV Rheinland for Certification of SuperCharge Technology
Certification marks the first time an end-to-end fast-charging technology has successfully completed rigorous tests set by renowned safety expert, TÜV Rheinland
BERLIN — September 5, 2017 – Huawei Consumer Business Group today announced its cooperation with TÜV Rheinland, the global leader in independent inspection services, to certify Huawei’s SuperCharge technology. The certification marks the first time an end-to-end fast-charging technology has successfully completed the rigorous tests set by TÜV Rheinland. The test looks at every component, requiring adapters, IC circuits and charging cable materials to pass safety, low temperature and thermal shock tests. In line with Huawei’s continued mission to deliver the most innovative features on the market, the certification by TÜV Rheinland demonstrates and underscores Huawei’s commitment to delivering not only faster charging but more importantly safer charging.
“Over the past 145 years, TÜV Rheinland has committed itself to ensuring that complex devices and products meet rigorous safety standards that meet consumer expectations,” said Kalyan Varma, VP of Business Field Electrical, Products, Global of TÜV Rheinland. “With the growing demand for fast charging solutions, we’re glad to work with Huawei to certify its SuperCharge technology using our proven testing methods and battery expertise. In the drive for continued innovation, we must always keep consumer safety at the forefront.”
“With each of our products, we strive not only to deliver the features and performance that consumers are looking for – but to go beyond where our competitors are in terms of experience,” said Bruce Lee, Vice President of Handset Business at Huawei Consumer Business Group. “By working with the storied experts at TÜV Rheinland, we’re able to deliver a device that not only offers incredibly fast charging but does so with a safety assurance that our competitors cannot match.”
HUAWEI’s SuperCharge technology enables continuous “communication” between the device and the charger. By monitoring every single point of the charging cycle, it is able to intelligently auto-adjust voltage and current output to maximise charging speed based on the capacity of the phone, adapter and cable. To keep Huawei’s fast-charging phones cool, Huawei SuperCharge uses a 4.5V/5A low-voltage charging solution.
In addition, the connectors and charging jack on Huawei’s devices are programmed to automatically suspend the supply of electricity if they come into contact with water. This intelligent safeguard is in place to prevent short circuits and device fires.
