Xiaomi is all set to announce its own flash charging technology in China tomorrow. The popular Chinese brand has decided to call the technology “Super Charge Turbo”. While more specific details will only be made public tomorrow, the company’s co-founder and President Bin Lin shared a video on Weibo today, demonstrating the new technology.
Xiaomi Super Charge Turbo to Support 100W Fast Charging
The Xiaomi “Super Charge Turbo” technology will be the world’s fastest flash charging technology, offering a whopping 100W wired fast charging support. As demonstrated in the video below, the technology makes it possible for a smartphone with a 4000mAh capacity battery to be fully charged in just 17 minutes. That’s significantly faster than any current wired fast charging solution. Huawei’s 55W SuperCharge technology in the Mate X allows the device’s 4500mAh battery to charge from 0 to 85% in 30 minutes.
In the video above, Xiaomi compared its 100W fast charging solution against rival OPPO’s 50W fast charging solution. It took just 7 minutes for the Xiaomi smartphone to be charged up to the 50% mark. The OPPO smartphone with a smaller 3700mAh battery, in comparison, was charged to 65% in the same time that it took the Xiaomi phone to be fully charged.
Currently, Xiaomi only offers up to 27W wired fast charging on its smartphones. However, even the flagship Mi 9 is only shipped with an 18W charger in the box. Whether or not we will see a new Xiaomi flagship smartphone equipped with 100W Super Charge Turbo technology this year, remains to be seen. In case the company does plan to commercialize the technology soon, consumers will likely have to shell out extra to purchase a Super Charge Turbo compatible charger. As mentioned earlier, we will need to wait until the official introduction of the technology in China tomorrow to find out more about it.
