Posted by at 3:35 pm on May 31, 2016

MediaTekMediaTek recently announced Pump Express 3.0, advanced rapid charging technology for smartphone batteries.

MediaTek claims Pump Express 3.0 can charge a battery from 0% to 70% in 20 minutes, or provide four hours of talk time after charging for five minutes. Pump Express 3.0 makes use of direct charge through USB Type-C, which bypasses the phone’s charging circuitry by routing current directly to the battery. This prevents phones from overheating during the charging process.

MediaTek says Pump Express 3.0 supports bi-directional charging and has safety systems in place to manage thermals. Pump Express 3.0 will be paired with the Helio P20 processor and MediaTek expects it to reach market in at least one phone by the end of the year.

Pump Express goes head-to-head with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge rapid charging technology.
