More advanced technology is added to the electrical appliances, which extends the battery life and reduces the heating conditions during charging, thus improving the safety of charging.
The maximum power will be adjusted to 28W, which will support two solutions of high voltage and high current, which will improve the heating and battery loss, and further improve the charging speed.
The second power management chip is used to provide dual fast charging, combined with intelligent heat balance design, and optimize charging efficiency.
