Yay, finally an example of tech companies actually giving out tech upgrades that have meaning, instead of setting gates to open whenever they feel like wooing a crowd. Ofcourse, thats assuming the numbers to be true, and the planning wasn’t already delayed to make more money.

Why would they say 0-50% in 5 minutes and not 0-100% in 10 minutes?

I wonder what that does to battery lifetime, though. Fast charging doesn't impress me if it rips apart the battery twice as fast. Batteries are only good for recharging a finite number of times...
