Will Fast Charging Damage the Battery?
This question has been bothering users for a long time. So, does the Armor 17 Pro’s fast charging damage its battery ? Not really, no. According to Ulefone, the phone, the fast charger and even the cable are all designed with a power management chip inside. Therefore, the charging management system will look after the battery to prevent any damage from overheating or overcharging.
The fast charging process actually consists of two phases of charging. When the battery capacity is low or empty, it takes in as much power as possible. This is the first phase. However, once the battery capacity reaches a certain level, the charging speed will be reduced to prevent stress and heat, that can shorten the battery’s longevity. This is the second phase.
