The need for larger capacity batteries in smartphones is the need of the hour in the tech world. However, this increases the size of smartphones which has become almost unacceptable in today’s smartphone market. In an attempt to combine the best of both worlds, smartphone manufacturers have resorted to fast charging technologies. However, Xiaomi is attempting to take this even further with its proposed 100W Super Charge Turbo fast charging technology.
The company claims that this technology is perfectly capable of charging a 4,000mAh battery to full capacity in just 17 minutes. Xiaomi took to the Chinese social networking platform, Weibo, to make the formal announcement of its upcoming technology. Unfortunately, most of the technical and nitty-gritty details about the functioning of this technology has not been disclosed. However, the CEO of Xiaomi, Lin Bin, shared a video, revealing how fast its technology is in charging batteries. The 100W fast charging was pitted against a 3,700mAh battery using OPPO’s Super VOOC Flash Charge. Take a look at it for yourself and see how impressive the result is!
After 17 minutes, the 4,000mAh battery using Xiaomi’s technology was fully charged up while the 3,7000mAh battery with OPPO’s fast charging technology lagged behind with just 65% battery after the same duration of time. The company is still working on its 100W super-fast charging and there’s no exact date provided for its release. Redmi has been working on a flagship device housing the Snapdragon 855 SoC. Do you think the company could be reserving its new fast charging for this device? Let us know what you think about this in the comments section below!
