As the phones around us get bigger, so do the battery capacities. In most smartphones, a 3500+ mAh battery has become the standard for quite some time now. Therefore, manufacturers have started working on faster chargers and other things to aid quick juicing of these batteries. After all, the bigger the battery, the longer it will last and the longer it would take to recharge.
Last time, we saw OPPO’s VOOC charging to take the industry by a storm. Their 65W behemoth of a charger proved to recharge an average phone from zero to a hundred in just 35 minutes or so. Then, we also saw OnePlus’ Warp charging, an evolution over the Dash charge which really introduced the concept of super-fast charging. Recently, OnePlus also introduced its fast wireless charger, offering the same wattage as the wired one.
Now, coming to Realme. The company has made its mark in the budget phone industry. Their phones have proved to be quite a success in the Indian market. Now, they are working on a new charging technology which would definitely revolutionise the game altogether. According to Ishan Agarwal’s Tweet, the company is working on a super-fast charger which pushes 100+ Watts of charging. Naming it the Ultra Dart, or the SuperDart, the charger would definitely be a monster.
A reliable source tells me that #realme’s developing a 100W+ fast charging tech to be revealed in July. It might be called "Ultra Dart" and can charge 1/3rd of a 4000mah+ battery in just 3 mins.

According to the tweet, it is pushing about 11660 mA of juice. This translates to about 120W which is something we usually see on gaming laptops. Now, what can this thing do? Ishan says that the new charger would be able to charge about a third of a 4000mAh battery in about 3 minutes or so. This is something huge, cutting the time down from an average charger by about 5 to 6 times.
Now, we wait and see how they implement the technology. Heat dissipation would be the biggest challenge, that’s for sure. The charger is set to debut sometime in July.
