The charging capabilities of our smartphones are constantly improving, and the various manufacturers are investing a lot in the field to create a distinct advantage over the competition. The latest to do so is Shiomi, which demonstrates tremendous wireless charging on one of its new flagship devices.
Faster than wired chargers
The Chinese manufacturer’s vice president, Chang Cheng, first released the video – which features a 40-watt wireless charger in the company’s new flagship device – Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.
The version of the device on which the demo was performed is slightly different from the one that will be launched on the market. The model shown comes with a 4,000mAh battery, in contrast to the 4,500mAh battery that is expected to come with the Mi 10 Pro models – which unfortunately is still unclear when they will arrive in Europe and Israel.
In a video posted by Chang on the Chinese social network Weibo, you can see how the company’s wireless charger charges the device and brings it within 20 minutes from 0 to 57% battery. After another 20 minutes the battery was already at 100 percent, meaning a full wireless charge in just 40 minutes.
This is a significant achievement, as there are still quite a few manufacturers whose wired “fast chargers” do not get charged at such suppliers. In announcing the Mi 10 Pro models, Xiaomi announced that the model will come with a 50 watt wired charger, with the device being able to charge other devices with a 10 watt reverse charge as well. However, the impressive charging capabilities shown in the new video were not mentioned in the online event (following the cancellation of the MWC exhibition) in which the devices were showcased.
One of the concerns with this type of high power charging is of course overheating, which can damage the battery in the long run – not to mention more dangerous cases like a possible flare of the charger or device. According to reports on technology sites abroad,Xiaomi’s high-speed wireless charger includes a fan to prevent cases of overheating.
Xiaomi is not the only Chinese actress to publish such videos on the net, when last June Oppo introduced a wired charging with a power of not less than 100 watts. Yes, this is a nice trick but in practice we have not yet been privileged to see it on devices going to market. Same goes for Xiaomi, it’s beautiful in a video on the net – but give it to us in commercial models as well.
