Germany/Munich: Portable Computing Devices are now everywhere. People have started to rely more on their smartphones, and thus rapid charging technologies have become a basic function in smartphones. People have started to ask for convenience brought by rapid charge technologies and have also become more concerned on the safety of rapid charging. As a leading international testing, inspection and certification company, TÜV SÜD extends worldwide testing solutions for various kinds of Portable Computing Devices.
TÜV SÜD has developed and released a Safety Quick Charge Certification Mark on the charging system for Portable Computing Devices with rapid charging capability. This is implemented by using higher voltage and current than basic USB specification, supplied by a dedicated external power adaptor to charge on battery by various power transfer protocols, including Smartphones, Tablet Computer, Laptop Computer, Portable Multimedia Player and some specified-purpose PDA devices.
The products intended to be certified have to be tested in different scenarios of quick charging system assembled with specific portable computing devices, cable and USB power supply source, and evaluating on proper functioning of quick charging. This would help achieve sufficient electrical & mechanical durability, and robust electrical and thermal protections for battery charging. In addition, according to the customer requirements, we are also delighted to offer some other bespoke services tailor made for additional quality assurance on battery charging system. From providing battery lifecycle tests and battery abuse tests, to performance testing under various climatic conditions, we strive to help our customers improve processes as well as products.
