Before Apple, Xiaomi and Samsung took the lead, why do many people oppose Huawei's cancellation of the complimentary charger?
Recently, a lot of media have been reporting that Huawei mate 40 series mobile phones no longer come with original chargers. We don't know whether the news is true or false. After all, the official announcement has not yet been made. However, many people have defined Huawei's "no longer come with original chargers" as "following suit". After all, Apple has set an example in the front, followed by Xiaomi, Samsung and other manufacturers, They think Huawei just joined the camp of "no additional original charger" later.
But combined with the actual situation, the direct reason for Huawei to make this decision is related to the "lack of core" environment, not for the so-called "environmental protection" purpose of some manufacturers, but the current large-scale shortage of charging IC chips, which leads to insufficient supply of chargers and even price increase. Due to well-known reasons, many related chip manufacturers have terminated their cooperation with Huawei, making many core parts of Huawei unable to be supplied in time. Therefore, Huawei's cancellation of charging head can be seen as the result of external double factors, which belongs to Huawei's reasonable operation and naturally has been understood by many people. In addition, Huawei should make corresponding price adjustment after canceling the charging head, which may reduce about 200-300 yuan.
But why do many people object to Huawei's failure to provide the original charger? The main reason is not that the price of the original charger is not cheap, but the fast charging agreement of the original charger. This time, Huawei cancels the attached 66W fast charging head. It adopts Huawei's own charging protocol, which can reach 11V ~ 6A. It needs a dedicated 6A orange core data cable. The 65W fast charging head on the market adopts PD protocol, and the maximum current is usually 3.25a. In addition, due to the incompatibility of fast charging protocol, the charging performance of 65W fast charging head is inferior to that of Huawei's original charger, which is also the reason why many users strongly require Huawei to equip the original charger as standard. From the user's point of view, it is necessary for Huawei to consider providing users with two different options: without the original charging head and with the standard original charging head. However, the price must be different. It can't be the same as Xiaomi's with or without the original charging head.
In short, Huawei's practice of canceling the charging head this time is more helpless due to the problem of "lack of core", which is essentially different from Apple's cancellation of the ancestral useless "Wufu Yian" charging head. It is not a simple follow-up. Considering that the original charging head adopts Huawei's own charging protocol and has advantages in charging performance, I believe Huawei will continue to provide the original charging head as standard for every user after solving the problem of core missing.
