Will fast charging kill my phone’s battery life? That’s a question that pops up every single time a smartphone manufacturer claims to deliver some form of fast charging. Would it heat up the phone too much? What kind of measures are in place to prevent battery degradation?

Still, there’s an undeniable benefit to the ludicrously fast charging pioneered by the likes of Xiaomi and OnePlus. If you’re in a rush to step out or running on a low battery ahead of a work call, a five-minute top-off gets you ready to roll. It’s something I think about every time I pick up my Google Pixel 7 Pro.
