Xiaomi is one of the major players in the fast charging development industry. The company currently has a 120W fast charging but it is working on improving its existing charging technologies. According to popular Weibo tech blogger, @DCS, Xiaomi is currently testing a flash charge of over 100W. The report also claims that the charging speed takes into account a larger capacity battery. The battery life and charging speed will be guaranteed at the same time. Unfortunately, the blogger did not disclose the specifications of this new fast-charging technology. From what we know so far, the Xiaomi 12 series highest charging power is 120W. Although the Xiaomi 12 will launch this year, the Ultra model will arrive in March or April with 120W fast charging. This means that Xiaomi’s new ultra-100W flash charger will not arrive until the Xiaomi MIX 5 series.
The earliest that this charging solution can launch is with the Xiaomi MIX 5 series. This flagship series will probably launch in the second half of the year. It is worth mentioning that there have been a lot of news that Xiaomi will support fast charging specifications with higher power than 120W on its high-end flagship products in the second half of next year
As for the specific plan, Xiaomi has previously announced a 200W power fast charge, showing a modified version of the Xiaomi 11 Pro. Its wired charging power reaches 200W, and it only takes 8 minutes to charge 100%. This is the first time that wired charging will deliver a full charge in less than 10 minutes.
In conjunction with Xiaomi’s previously announced self-developed “ring-shaped cold pump cooling system”, it will also greatly control the heat generation of the 200W fast charging. This will improve the safety of this ultra-high-power fast charging thereby improving the overall performance.
Xiaomi also has a 120W wireless fast charging technology
In addition, Xiaomi also has a 120W ultra-fast wireless flash charging. For wireless charging, it can get a full 100% charge in 15 minutes. First off, this is the first time that the wireless charging capacity will exceed 100W. Secondly, charging wirelessly for only 15 minutes to give a full charge is also new.
Nevertheless, the wireless charging capacity seems to be stuck at 50W because of a Chinese law. The Chinese government believes that wireless charging above 50W is not entirely safe. For this reason, Chinese manufacturers are not really improving the wireless charging power anymore.
In addition, Xiaomi has also customized a 10C super-fast charging chemical system for 200W charging technology, which protects the battery materials to the extreme. The battery energy maintains more than 80% after 800 cycles, far exceeding the Chinese battery life standard. For the Chinese standard, after 400 cycles the battery energy should not be less than 60%.
