One of the drawbacks that hinder the development of better batteries is because the density thereof. We’re running out of room for improvement. Batteries are measured in milliampere hours (mAh) indicating the amount of electric charge that are capable of storing the cells in a battery. In mobile, we have moved from old burdens of 200 mAh ten years to 3400-3800 mAh batteries. Similarly, processors although more efficient and increasingly demanding resources have more power and more cores move.
Faced with this obstacle, ASUS has developed its rapid charging system Boostmaster in smartphones, in addition to the connection USB Charger Plus portable, for connecting peripherals, bringing a handful of possibilities and an important solution not stay lying when most needed us battery.
Quick charge: A few truths and lies
The evolutionary constraint battery seems to have no easy short – term solution. There is talk of sugar, of evolved chips but, in practice, the smartphone and we are still putting out every few hours. Every time we use more time our gadgets and increasing resources consumed.
Most manufacturers are dealing with this obstacle by using powerbanks: chargers that provide a lot of energy in less time, allowing, quite simply, the battery charge before.
However, this practice is a concern for users. If we put more power to the equipment, there is no possibility that degrades, it loses capacity? It’s not completely true. While a study of a user showed that the use of a turbocharger gradually damages the atoms of lithium manganese battery, it is known that all batteries have a limited lifespan, and the impact of these new methods is not a additional damage. In other words: all batteries deteriorate with use.
First we must be clear that each turbocharger is made to the corresponding gadget. You have to use specific tools. Using poor quality boots instead of those supplied by the manufacturer can increase this problem. And also keep in mind that the usual wear of the batteries is estimated charging cycles: the more you use the more degradation. In addition, although not estimated for sure, it is not recommended to allow the batteries to empty to 0%.
A common question that arises is, if our system is not ready for fast charging, can load one of these turbochargers. Good: these special chargers are able to supply more current, but is the processor itself which graduates the current the device without damaging it. It is not, as you might think, how to connect a higher voltage transformer to a plate that does not support certain power level.
Some advantages of fast charging
Fast loading is key for gadgets that require mobility: tablets, smartphones, wearables, and so on. The more effectively reduced dependence on cables and power outlets. In addition, when the batteries reach their minimum performance suffers, therefore the quick charge function is ideal to always have our team’s ready and maximum effectiveness.

As mentioned earlier, ASUS has developed great advances in fast charging. They are also the only manufacturer that incorporates Intel technology in its processors. Battery Zenfone 2, for example, is between standards: 3,000 mAh. But thanks to its BoostMaster technology allows you to charge 32% of the battery in 15 minutes, 60% in just 39 minutes, which represents a reduction of 50-60% over the loading time of other terminals.
The 18 watt adapter BoostMaster apparently a simple 9V charger is not responsible for all the work, but the processor smartphone. The ‘Intel Atom Z3580’ Zenforce 2 processor, also present in the ZenFone Zoom- has a controller chip that detects the type of charger, if you can provide more power, free BoostMaster function, allowing the phone to accept the power of these 18W.

The phablet ASUS remains on the podium with one of the best battery durations market. And this is mainly due to a function: the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology. It is a dynamic acceleration of the CPU, increasing performance of tasks by 15% when required and reducing their use when they are at rest.
This reminds the fuel consumption of vehicles in urban areas, where they must be constantly stops and accelerations. The ability of the Super Hybrid Engine II resides in minimizing consumption during acceleration; regulate that extra energy needed in the most demanding applications. In addition, the system automatically goes into hibernation, with up to 14 days standby and automatically save data when the battery charge drops to 5%.
And finally, as we said at the beginning, it makes use of the USB Charger Plus technology. This convertible notebook -you can tilt the screen keyboard to about 100 degrees – detects and intelligently increases the load current to detect a smartphone into the USB port. So not only we have 11, even 15 hours depending on usage, but we can give energy to give to others of our devices.
