Fast charging is certainly the need of the hour when it comes to smartphones. Xiaomi in an attempt to stay ahead in the game introduced a new wireless charger on the 8th of November. The 20W wireless charger will be available for purchase from the 11th of November on Xiaomi’s crowdfunding website. While this wireless charger isn’t at the top of the company’s lineup, it’s certainly a welcome addition.
In terms of its appearance, the 20W wireless charger closely resembles that of a Xiaomi power bank. The design is simple and minimalistic with a classy and elegant matte finish. The charger sits on a circular base and is placed upright at an angle. This is perhaps what makes it so unique as the wireless charger is capable of charging devices in both landscape and vertical positions. Thanks to its brilliant design, this charging device also serves a dock, allowing users to view incoming notifications. This device can charge several devices compatible with Qi wireless charging technology. This includes a list of Apple’s iPhones, Samsung’s Galaxy Note and even the S-Series of smartphones.
While it does support wireless charging of up to 20W, the real charging speed will depend upon the capability of the device in question. For instance, iPhones only support up to 7.5W charging. The price of the device is set at Yuan 99 ($14). However, it will be offered at Yuan 79 ($11) as an introductory price.
