Fast charging

Fast charging refers to charging a battery at a higher current or voltage than standard charging rates, reducing the time required to reach a full charge. While fast charging can be convenient, it may generate more heat and stress the battery, potentially affecting its lifespan. There is no defined threshold for classification of fast charging. Some applications are deemed fast charging if full charging is performed within 30 mins, while others only call it fast charging if a full charge is done within 10 to 12 mins.
