Bypass is a popular term. The charging technology also includes bypass charging. But it was more applicable to laptops till now. In each case the term refers to an alternative method or path. Bypass charging technology means that the laptop will work without the help of a battery, just by being connected to the charger.
So now this technology is also used in smartphones to get safe and best performance. However, not all smartphones have this technology. But it’s slowly starting to add up.
Bypass charging was initially more common in flagship phones such as Samsung and Asus. Recently, Infinix is also adding bypass charging technology to mid-budget phones in the market. This technology bypasses the battery and directly collects the charge from the charger.
The phone can now be charged with a wall charger even if it has no battery There is no way to save phone charge like this. The direct charge will be connected to the phone’s motherboard and will keep the mobile on. When bypass mode is off, the phone will stay in normal mode and continue to charge.
The question may be, what are the benefits of bypass charging? Nowadays, we spend all day on smartphones for general work, entertainment or gaming. There are times when we need to keep our smartphone charged and work. Usually, the phone generates a lot of heat while charging which is called heating issue. This heat rises and doubles when doing things like video editing or gaming, which is very dangerous for the phone.
Sometimes mobile explosions can also happen. Excessive heat is harmful to the battery and other parts of the smartphone. Holding a hot phone is also not a very pleasant feeling. So, the smartphone sends a certain amount of charge to the battery when bypass charging mode is on when the charger is plugged in. It then sends the rest of the power to the phone’s motherboard. That is, bypassing the power supply to the motherboard. This facility is very safe. Its performance in the flagship though remains to be seen as to how it will fare in the midrange.
