Lately, we have seen smartphone companies introduce some of the fastest charging technologies. This year we saw the companies even surpass the 100W charging technology. And now the companies are focusing on speeding up the wireless technology. Earlier, Oppo announced 65W AirVOOC and now Xiaomi has topped it with 80W Mi Wireless Charging Technology. Let’s learn more about the new technology in more depth.
Xiaomi 80W Mi Wireless Charging Technology Overview
Three breakthroughs in a year
Xiaomi first introduced its 30W wireless charging solution dubbed the Mi Charge Turbo just last year during the launch of Mi 9 Pro 5G. In March of this year, the company announced its 40W wireless charging technology which charged a custom Mi 10 Pro with a 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 100% in 40 minutes. Again in August, Xiaomi introduced Mi 10 Ultra with a 50W wireless charging solution. However, it was mostly overshadowed by the fact that the device also brought 120W wired charging to the commercial market. And now the company has demonstrated its latest 80W wireless charging technology.
80W Mi Wireless Charging’s Performance
As per the company’s official press release, the new 80W Mi Wireless Charging Technology can fill a 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 100% in just 19 minutes. Even in the first minute of charging, the new tech can fill the battery up to 10%. Similarly, the battery is half-filled in just 8 minutes. The company also released a video to back up its claim. The video shows the 80W Mi Wireless Charging Technology in action on a modified Mi 10 Pro.
Wireless Charging: Xiaomi vs Oppo
With this announcement, Xiaomi has now taken a lead in the wireless charging technology. Prior to this, Oppo had announced its fastest wireless charging – 65W AirVOOC. The company claimed that it was capable of charging a 4,000mAh battery wirelessly in around 30 minutes. However, we are yet to any of the two technologies on a commercial phone. Still, Mi 10 Ultra’s 50W wireless charging solution beats Oppo’s 40W Super AirVOOC in the Ace 2.
