Huawei Mate 60 Pro Charging Test - ChargerLAB Compatibility 100
In the past few years, due to various restrictions, Huawei smartphones couldn't utilize the Kirin chipset. However, Huawei persisted in chip development. After nearly four years of research and development, they achieved a breakthrough, showcased in the latest Huawei Mate 60 Pro. This phone, equipped with a new chipset and robust communication capabilities, marks a powerful return.
The Huawei Mate 60 Pro features the Ark Engine, Xuanwu architecture, and the all-new Kirin 9000s chipset, coupled with a 5000mAh battery. Additionally, it supports 88W Super Fast Charging, 50W Wireless Super Fast Charging, 20W Wireless Reverse Charging, and boasts IP68 dust and water resistance. Now, let's explore the charging compatibility of this device.
Charging Compatibility Test
Next, ChargerLAB will conduct a comprehensive test on the compatibility of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro, evaluating its performance with a selection of more than 100 charging devices. These devices include Huawei chargers, third-party chargers, power banks, and portable power stations, aiming to cover the majority of users' charging scenarios.
This test includes two types of Huawei chargers, both paired with original Huawei charging cables.
Combining the compatibility test data of various Huawei chargers, the results reveal excellent compatibility with the original chargers, perfectly meeting users' fast charging expectations.
The bar graph clearly displays the charging power of each charger, mostly reaching their maximum output, with the phone achieving a peak charging power of around 80W.
For situations where users forget their chargers and have to resort to third-party chargers without Huawei cables, the compatibility performance with third-party chargers and cables is assessed.
Taking the Apple 70W charger as an example, it provides the Mate 60 Pro with a power output of 8.9V 1.27A, equivalent to 11.28W.
The compatibility test data for third-party chargers with third-party cables shows that, apart from a few chargers, the majority operate at 9V.
The bar graph section vividly illustrates the charging power of each charger. In this test, the charging power of the third-party chargers is pretty stable, with the majority consistently maintaining two levels: 11W and 18W. Furthermore, as a former subsidiary, Honor's two chargers are equipped with the SCP protocol. This is the reason they can charge Huawei's phones at high power, demonstrating exceptional performance.
Moving on to power banks, all tested products trigger a 9V voltage value in the table, with currents ranging from 1 to 2A.
The bar graph of charging power shows that, for the Huawei Mate 60 Pro, charging power mostly stays around 11W, with a few reaching around 20W. It works, but the experience is not outstanding to say the least.
Lastly, we have the portable power station. This category of products typically features 60W/100W USB output ports. However, the performance this time is similar to power banks, with overall power not exceeding 9V2A.
The bar graph of charging power illustrates that the ZEEKR 1200W has the highest power, but overall, there is no significant variation compared to chargers, power banks, and other devices.
Summary of ChargerLAB
Regarding the hardware specifications of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro, users can refer to the official store for details. In essence, it incorporates the latest chipset, HarmonyOS, decent camera module, large-capacity battery, and features such as Kunlun glass, Xuanwu architecture, and excellent communication technology. Despite the limitations due to US sanctions, its SoC may not match mainstream products, but it's a promising start.
In terms of charging performance, it supports 88W wired fast charging. In this compatibility test, it exhibited outstanding compatibility with original chargers. For third-party chargers, while complete incompatibility didn't occur, except for Honor, the charging power mostly peaked at around 20W, presenting a moderate performance.
Regardless, the Huawei Mate 60 Pro successfully passed the ChargerLAB Compatibility 100 Test. Below is the compatibility 100 test report issued by us.
