A few days ago, we reported that Infinix is working on a new 180W Thunder charge system. Well, the first Infinix phone that will use this super fast charge is going to be the nest Infinix Zero which we presume will be called the Infinix Zero 11. A new report has surfaced detailing how the 180W thunder charge system will function in the Infinix Zero 11.

Top of the things addressed is safety and battery degradation. Charging a battery at a whopping 180W has its cons but Infinix has managed to keep things under control and even got TÜV Rheinland Safe Fast-Charge System certification for the Thunder charge system.

The 180W charger can charge a 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 100% in less than ten minutes and can charge a 4,500mAh battery from 0 to 50% in about four minutes.

According to Infinix, the Thunder Charge system will use two 8C batteries connected in series so that each only has to handle 90W of power. And to keep down the amount of heat that will be generated, the company has used different layers of protection and efficiency techniques.

One way Infinix has worked to manage the heat is by working with battery manufacturers to create a multi-electrode lug design. The multi-electrode lug design reduces the battery’s internal resistance by more than 50%.

This way, the dual batteries inside the phone can charge simultaneously with about 99% conversion efficiency. And even though this reduces the heat that is generated when charging, there is still the issue of safety.

So, to make sure that the 108W Thunder charge system is safe to use on the Infinix Zero 11, the company has created 111 software and hardware security mechanisms for the Thunder charge system. These mechanisms check for things like high temperature, increased voltage, electromagnetic interference, and so on and will stop the charging process if things are going South.

In addition, there are 20 temperature sensors that monitor the USB port (we presume to be USB Type-C), charging chips, battery, and other key areas. The mechanism system aims to keep the temperature of the Infinix Zero 11 below 43°C to reduce battery degradation.

As for the charging cable that’ll be included in the box, Thunder Charge will use a special encryption chip to verify the authenticity of the cable. Although the charge can also be used to charge other devices, it’ll be capped at 60W or 100W in those cases.

The 180W Thunder Charge system is expected to be in the next Infinix Zero phone. And if this charging system works well, the next Infinix Zero phone will be the fastest charging phone on the market. Topping the 150W fast charge used in the Realme GT Neo 3 and OnePlus Ace.
