The vkworld T1 Plus Kratos is the upcoming Android powered Smartphone from the Chinese Smartphone manufacturer, vkworld. The device features a 6-inch huge JDI display with many edge technologies. To balance the power consumption of the huge screen used in vkworld T1 Plus Kratos, vkworld puts a Sony 4300mAh Li-Polymer battery under that 7.9mm aluminium alloy thin body.
Nowadays, batteries used in the mobile phones can be classified into two types: Li-ion and Li-Polymer. Li-ion technology has been used for a very long time and Li-polymer is being used now on many smartphones. Li-ion batteries are very mature and advanced, that’s why some factories collect lots of used Li-ion batteries and refurnish them under some simple procedures. These refurnished batteries would cause many problems which includes liquid leakage and explosion. On the other hand Li-polymer battery, although it is not a new technology, it is more advantageous than Li-ion battery.
|Li-ion battery||Li-polymer battery|
|Chances of liquid leakage||Likely||never|
|Chances of explosion||Likely to explode when overcharged||Safe from explosion|
|Aging||Loses its actual charging capacity over time||Does not lose its charging capacity as much as Li-ion|
|Charging duration||Longer charge||Shorter charge|
|Weight||Little heavier||Light weight|
|Ability to bend||No||Almost 90 degree|
|Capacity and voltage||Lower||Higher|
With Sony 4300mAh Li-polymer battery, people think of its charging and vkworld T1 Plus Kratos supports MediaTek Pump Express fast charging.
