Xiaomi has announced its latest fast charging solution. The new HyperCharge technology solidifies the company’s position as the leader in the world of fast charging. It supports 200W wired and 120W wireless charging. Here, we will be learning more about Xiaomi HyperCharge Technology in detail.
Xiaomi HyperCharge Technology
The company shared a video demonstrating the breakthrough charging technology via its social media handles. The video shows the HyperCharge technology in action on a modified Mi 11 Pro with a 4,000mAh battery.
Using the wired charging method, the phone went from 0 to 10% in just 44 seconds. It only took 3 minutes for the phone to get to 50%. It took additional 5 minutes to get to 100%. Thus, Xiaomi’s new 200W wired HyperCharge Technology can fill a 4,000mAh smartphone battery in just 8 minutes.
This is more than twice as fast as Oppo’s 125W Flash Charge that fills up a similar-sized battery in 20 minutes.
Similarly, 120W wireless HyperCharge technology is an improvement over last year’s 80W Mi Wireless Charging. The latter could charge a 4,000mAh cell to its maximum capacity in 40 minutes. The latest charging tech gets the job done in just 15 minutes instead.
In the demo video, the HyperCharge wireless charging got the modified Mi 11 Pro to 10% in just one minute while hitting the 50% mark in 7 minutes. It took the charger additional 8 minutes to wrap up the charging process—so 15 minutes in total.
Is it market-ready though?
The answer is no, so don’t expect to see a commercial device with 200W wired charging and 120W wireless charging capability anytime soon. These types of demos are more of a way to secure bragging rights among smartphone brands. In addition, it is also a great way to keep customers and investors happy and invested in the company.
Currently, iQOO 7 is the only device that even ships with a 120W charger, and that too in the company’s home country of China only. Xiaomi did launch the Mi 10 Ultra with a 120W charger last year but retracted back to 67W with the new Mi 11 Ultra.
Mi 11 Ultra also charges wirelessly at 67W. It is an upgrade from 50W wireless charging on its predecessor. Huawei Mate 40 Pro is another device that has 50W wireless charging.
