Smart Charging Mode: A new EMUI feature that can delay battery aging, more devices will be updated



President of Huawei Consumer Business Software, Wang Chenglu introduced a new Smart Charging Mode feature for Huawei and Honor smartphones.

According to the official, smartphones powered by lithium batteries ages differently, which results vary in terms of charging or simply called slow charging as well as short battery life.

For example, if a user leaves the charging overnight or for a long time. The charger keeps supplying the power to the battery, a state called overcharging. Repeating this process causes battery aging.

But with accurate management, the battery aging can be slow down and extend the battery life.

This is where Smart Charging Mode comes in place and uses the phone’s built-in AI capabilities to learn usage patterns. To slow down the battery to charge 100% when required.

For example, if the smart charging mode is enabled and the battery reaches 80%. The charging automatically slowdowns (charging rate) before it reaches 100%. This whole process prevents the phone to keep charging at 100 percent without harming the battery.

While working, the smart charging mode disables the charging icon automatically. But if users want to charge the phone to 100 percent, disabling the feature is necessary.

To check for this feature go to Settings > Battery > More battery settings > Smart charging mode. Here you can tap the slider to activate/deactivate the smart charging mode.

Currently, this feature is available for Huawei Mate 30 and Honor V30 series devices and will be pushed for older devices with an EMUI update later on.

We’ll keep you updated once the announcement is being made regarding more devices.
