Xiaomi’s 200 W Charger Charges A Phone In 8 Minutes

Share post:

Xiaomi demonstrated a 200 W Xiaomi HyperCharge in a Twitter video over the weekend, showing that the new technology can fully charge an exhausted phone in just eight minutes.

The phone recharges to 10% in 44 seconds, while it quickly ramps up to 200 W. In three minutes, the phone’s battery is already 50% full.

Power increases to 150 W when the phone reaches 75% charge in just five and a half minutes.

Eventually, the system slows down to 40 W on its way to a full charge after eight minutes.

Such behaviour is designed to protect the battery’s longevity and is one reason why there is no evidence that fast charging degrades the battery faster than normal charging.

Xiaomi is not the only company pushing for higher charging speeds.

Qualcomm announced 100 W charging technology last year and Oppo currently boasts 125 W while Xiaomi’s best commercial phones reach 120 W.

It is not yet known when the 200-watt charge will be available in stores.
