One of the common features of the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Mate 10 Porsche Design is that they all feature 4,000mAh batteries. These batteries can last for two days and the SuperCharge fast charging technology can make these phones last for a day by charging it only 20 minutes.
The SuperCharge technology features 4.5V low-voltage input along with 5A charging current. The technology has received certification from TUV Rheinland for meeting its safety standards for fast charging. TUV Rheinland is a popular company from Germany that inspects and certifies products. The SuperCharge technology for Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro was certified by the agency by successfully carrying out numerous charging cycles for the battery and phone.

The company has also verified the safety of the Mate 10 duo under extreme conditions by subjecting it to hot and cold temperatures. It has also the verified the safety of the phone’s battery through multiple drop tests. The USB-C charging ports are also checked by inserting and retracting charging cables over 10,000 times. Also, both the phones have been tested by the German firm with chargers from third-party companies.
According to TUV Rheinland, the SuperCharge technology driven Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro are the world’s first safe fast charging system.

Since then smartphone OEMs have become all the more careful when it comes to meeting safety standards for battery.
The rapid charging feature on the Mate 10 series allows these smartphones to reach zero to 58 percent by charging them only for 30 minutes.
