ATL (Amperex Technology Limited) doesn’t ring a bell amongst most people but mention that they are the company that made the battery in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7……wait for it….the battery in Note 7 models sold in China that did not explode.
The Chinese company has unveiled a new battery that supports 40W quick charge and can be charged from 0 to 100% in just 34 minutes. The new battery will be available in 3 sizes. The 3000mAh capacity can be charged up to 80% in 17 minutes and fully charged in 34 minutes according to lab tests but due to safety concerns, it has been modified to take 25 minutes to get to 80% and about 40 to 50 minutes to fully charge when it becomes commercially available.

ATL also says the fast charge won’t shorten the battery’s life span as it will still have a 500-charge life cycle like most batteries available now. And even after 700 charge cycles, the capacity will still remain at 80%.
The batteries are expected to start shipping with phones starting next year.
