Hypercharge 120W wirelessly and 200W via cable
The Chinese technology manufacturer Xiaomi this week showed its new fast-charging solutions for smartphones that it currently works on, which go up to 120W wirelessly and 200W via cable, which could fully charge a phone battery in just eight minutes.
HyperCharge, as Xiaomi’s new generation fast charging technology was called, has been put to the test with a custom version of the brand’s Mi 11 Pro, with which it has achieved the world record for both wired and wireless charging, as stated by the company itself on its Twitter account.
Through the use of 200W wired charging, a phone’s 4,000 mAh battery is fully charged in just eight minutes, while charging 10% of the battery would take just 44 seconds.
For its part, the 120W HyperCharge wireless charging technology is capable of fully recharging the 4,000 mAh battery of a phone in just 15 minutes, which according to the company also represents a world record in terms of traditional charging systems.
Additionally, Xiaomi’s 120W wireless charging allows obtaining 10% of the total capacity in just one minute, while half the battery is recharged after seven minutes.
These developments are known just a week after the Chinese firm confirmed that it has been formally removed from the “blacklist” of companies with which US citizens and companies cannot do business.
This was confirmed after the Court of the District of Columbia (United States) annulled the designation of the Chinese firm as a “Chinese communist military company”, an accusation that gained relevance while former President Donald Trump served as his mandate.
The final order, issued on Tuesday, “annuls Xiaomi’s US Department of Defense designation as a Chinese Communist Military Company (CCMC),” the company reported.
The Chinese manufacturer decided to file a lawsuit against the decision that included it among the companies on the ‘black list’ and that last March the US Justice suspended in a precautionary way the inclusion of Xiaomi in said list.
