Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has been quite busy, considering the number of smartphones and accessories it has launched in the Indian market over the past few months. In addition to the standard 5V-2A wall charger that the company has been selling in India, Xiaomi has now brought yet another wall charger and it is Qualcomm Quick Charge certified for rapid charging. The company has launched a new Qualcomm Charge 3.0 charger in India today, and it is priced at Rs. 449. The official website mentions that you can avail a 25 percent discount on this charger.
In a forum post, Xiaomi claims that this new charger can withstand voltage surges up to 380V, and that it is compatible with the Mi MIX 2, Mi Max 2, and the Mi 5. It has an output of 5V-3A or 9V-2A or 12V-1.5, and it has the same voltage surge withstanding power as that of the charger that comes in the box with the Mi A1, Redmi Y1, and the Redmi 5A. To remind you about the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 standard, it was introduced by Qualcomm in late 2015. It allows a smartphone to be charged up to 40 percent faster than the conventional charging. Apart from that, it also depends on the hardware a smartphone uses. With compatible phones, it can charge the device up to 80% in just 35 minutes.
Coming to this newly introduced wall charger by Xiaomi, it can be purchased from Mi.com. It comes in Black colour and is just Rs. 100 costlier than the typical 5V-2A charger which the company sells for Rs. 349. However, you don’t get a USB cable along with this new wall charger. The brand claims that it has an Automatic Temperature Control and its temperature will not go beyond 30 degrees celsius in order to prevent overheating.
