Infinix, a smartphone brand owned by Transsion Holdings, has announced that it will unveil two new battery technologies at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024 in Las Vegas. 

The technologies are called AirCharge and Extreme-Temp Battery, and they aim to improve the charging speed and performance of Infinix devices.

Infinix AirCharge: Wireless charging

AirCharge is a wireless charging technology that does not require any cables or pads to charge the device. Instead, it uses a transmitter that emits radio waves to a receiver in the phone, which converts them into electrical energy. Infinix claims that AirCharge can charge a phone from 0 to 100% in 90 minutes, and it can work within a range of five meters.

AirCharge also supports multiple devices charging at the same time, and it can automatically adjust the power output according to the distance and orientation of the phone. Infinix says that AirCharge is safe and efficient, and it does not interfere with other wireless signals or devices.

Infinix Extreme-Temp Battery

Extreme-Temp Battery is a technology that can withstand extreme temperatures and still deliver fast and stable charging. Infinix says that Extreme-Temp Battery can charge a phone from 0 to 100% in 30 minutes, even in temperatures as low as -20°C or as high as 60°C.

Extreme-Temp Battery also has a longer lifespan and lower degradation rate than conventional batteries, according to Infinix. The company says that Extreme-Temp Battery can retain 80% of its original capacity after 1,000 cycles of charging and discharging, compared to 60% for conventional batteries.

Future of smartphone battery

The new battery technologies are part of Infinix's vision to provide users with a better smartphone experience and solve the pain points of battery life and charging. 

The company said that it will showcase its AirCharge and Extreme-Temp Battery technologies at CES 2024, along with its latest smartphone models and other innovations. Infinix is not the first smartphone brand to explore wireless charging without cables or pads. 

Xiaomi and Motorola have also demonstrated similar technologies in the past, but they have not yet launched them commercially. Infinix’s AirCharge and Extreme-Temp Battery technologies could give it an edge over its competitors, especially in emerging markets where Infinix has a strong presence.
