Xiaomi’s 80W wireless charging fills a 4000mAh battery in 19 minutes
Xiaomi celebrated its tenth anniversary earlier this year in August with the launch of the Mi 10 Ultra and the Redmi K30 Ultra. While both the devices featured top-tier hardware, the Mi 10 Ultra took things to another level by offering users with features like a 120Hz OLED display, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, a 48MP periscope camera with 120x digital zoom, and support for 120W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging. Although the 50W wireless fast charging solution on the device is faster than most wired fast charging solutions in the market today, Xiaomi has now demoed an even faster wireless charging solution.
Xiaomi’s new 80W Mi Wireless Charging technology is a major step up from the 50W solution on the Mi 10 Ultra. While the 50W solution is capable of charging a 4,500mAh battery from 0-100% in 40 minutes flat, Xiaomi claims that its new 80W wireless charging tech can fill a 4,000mAh battery to 10% in 1 minute, 50% in 8 minutes, and 100% in just 19 minutes. You can check out the new wireless charging solution in action on a modified Mi 10 Pro in the video attached below:
The new 80W wireless charging solution is Xiaomi’s third technological breakthrough in this space in 2020 alone. After debuting 30W wireless fast charging last year, Xiaomi first showcased a 40W wireless fast charging solution earlier this year in March. The company then one-upped that with the Mi 10 Ultra’s 50W solution. And the company’s latest 80W wireless fast charging solution takes things to a whole new level. At this rate, we may get to see an even faster wireless charging solution in the near future.
As of now, Xiaomi hasn’t revealed whether the new 80W wireless fast charging solution is ready for mass production or not. However, considering the fact that the company already ships a smartphone with 50W wireless fast charging support, it may not be long before we see a smartphone featuring the new 80W wireless fast charging tech.
