Xiaomi has just announced its latest smartphone innovation, the Mi Charge Turbo tech. This is a wireless charging technology that supports 30W charging speed.
According to Xiaomi, this standard should be enough to charge a flat 4,000mAh battery up to 50% within 25 minutes. It will charge the battery fully in 69 minutes.
The technology uses a 5-layer nanocrystal receiver coil with a conversion efficiency of 98%. This should also help to keep the temperature under control.
This is quite the leap from what we saw in the Xiaomi Mi 9. The Mi 9 got 20W. In a test carried out, this only charged the device’s 3,300mAh battery up to 30% in 30 minutes.
The Chinese company confirmed that the 30W Mi Charge Turbo will debut on the upcoming Mi 9 Pro 5G flagship. The device is coming later this month. However, Xiaomi did not clarify if the speedy charger will be included in the retail package or not. If it does not, then you may have to purchase it separately to enjoy this speed.
Asides from announcing the 30W Mi Charge Turbo, Xiaomi also talked about developing a 40W wireless charging standard. In fact, the company said that this was already in the testing stages. Right now though, we are looking forward to seeing the 30W Mi Charge Turbo in the Mi 9 Pro 5G.
