It looks like Huawei is working on a 100W charger that could deliver super-fast charging speeds for compatible handsets.

As spotted by GSM arena, Huawei’s new charger has appeared on China’s 3C certification site, suggesting a release is imminent. According to the listing, the accessory will charge at speeds of 100W to 20V / 5A.

While a 100W charger should work with any phone that has the right charging port, the speed benefits of buying one are non-existent if your handset doesn’t support that power. Notably, this excludes all current Huawei handsets, with the newer Huawei P50 and P50 Pro supporting up to 66W charging via Wired Huawei SuperCharge (with optional 50W wireless charging for the Pro model) .

This suggests that the company’s next flagship handsets will support faster charging speeds to take advantage of the new accessory. Whether this will be a special edition of the Huawei P50 or something entirely different remains to be seen.

Very few handsets support 100W charging except Huawei’s Honor 50 Pro. former sister company Honor, which promises a full charge in 25 minutes.

It could be faster, according to another Chinese brand: Xiaomi. Two years ago, the company unveiled a 100W Super Charge Turbo charger with the promise that it could charge a 4000mAh battery from zero to 100% in just 17 minutes.

While charging speeds certainly suffer from diminishing returns – less than an hour should be fine for most people – that would certainly be impressive. The Warp 65W charger that comes with the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro is still the best we’ve seen, and it can charge the device from flat to 100% in just over half an hour. For the OnePlus 9, we found that the phone hit 80% in about 15 minutes.
