Universal Fast Charging Standard Announced

By the China Communications Standards Association

The China Communications Standards Association has joined together with some of the top smartphone manufacturers in the world to launch a new Universal Fast Charging Specification, or UFCS, for mobile devices. Popular brands like Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi have committed to adopting this new standard for all their mobile devices moving forward.

Universal Fast Charging Specification

Fast charging has become a must-have requirement for all types of smart devices these days, including but not limited to smartphones, tablets, power banks, home and car chargers, and even laptops. To ensure uniform progress of this new standard of energy delivery, the China Communications Standards Association has released 11 fast charging certifications that apply to a whole variety of battery-powered mobile devices.

These certifications will be categorized into different stages depending on the power output required, with the first stage featuring devices with a maximum power output of 40W. In the second stage, this output goes up to the 65W mark. As the power delivery targets keep going up for high-end smartphones, so will the stages of fast charge support.

This new format of designation will soon be adopted by all the top smartphone manufacturers in China, with the above-mentioned brands already planning to change their packaging to reflect the same. The association hopes that this new standard will also be adopted by other brands from across the world who already use Chinese manufacturing for their own smart devices.

Future Industry Standards

In addition to providing a clearly understandable nomenclature for charging devices, this move is also aimed at establishing tangible goals for the future development of industry standards. One of the first is the continued development of new fast charging solutions for a variety of devices and use cases. Any new developments made will be adopted by the industry at large so that all manufacturers can stay on an equal footing. This is meant to create a unified fast charging ecosystem that will become the universal standard for Chinese manufacturing.

By having such a unified front, they hope to be able to compete with the global manufacturing firms on an equal footing while also improving third-party certification and identification. The hope is that this will encourage other global brands also to adopt these standards as well and help keep China on par with international innovation. Since most of the world's electronics are already made in China, chances are this will also become accepted as the new standard for the entire electronics industry.
