Fast Charging has become the main battleground in the smartphone war recently and Xiaomi is always ahead of everyone. Last year the they announced that they are working on a 100W wired charger that could fully fill a 4,000mAh battery in only 17 minutes. Now they are planning to go one step ahead if it with the 80W Mi Wireless Charging that will take less time to do the same job without wires.
Most of the smartphones with the wireless charging support lies somewhere between 10 to 15W. OnePlus 8 Pro came up with it’s 30W wireless charging and on the other hand Huawei’s P40 Pro+ and Oppo’s Reno Ace can do 40W. The Mi 10 Ultra of Xiaomi can charge wirelessly at 50W which is already very fast but 80W will blow your mind away.
According to Xiaomi, its next generation tech can charge the battery from 0-100% in just 19 minutes. It reaches 10% mark in just a minute and 50% mark in 8 minutes. The 30W wireless charging of company takes 25 minutes to go to 50% and almost 70 minutes to reach 100% so we can say that it is a staggering enhancement. Wireless power has always been considered as more convenient that the plugged I, but it is always slower as well as less efficient. With such speeds we can expect portless phones becomes popular and normal sooner or later.
