- Xiaomi has announced its speedy 80W wireless charging
- It charges a 4,000mAh battery in just 19 minutes
- Digital Chat Station on Weibo said 2021 will be the year of 100W charging tech
Xiaomi is upping its game with a newly announced 80W wireless charging. According to Xiaomi, it can charge a 4,000 mAh battery in just 19 minutes which is impressive. Xiaomi has previously recorded 50W wired charging with Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. The folks out Android Authority ran a test to check out how credible the 80W wired solution from Xiaomi performs. Turns out it was able to charge a 4,500mAh battery in just 40 minutes.
A well-known Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo said that OEMs are aiming to push out 100W wireless charging in 2020 and the 80W solution could be our step towards 100W in near future.
We have already seen wired and wireless charging solution is amongst the fastest, however, the Chinese OEM admitted that its 125W solution can degrade battery to 80% after 800 charging cycles. This is twice the degradation its 65W wired charging solution could cause after 800 charging cycles.
As the wired/wireless charging speed is exponentially increasing, concerns about heat generation and battery degradation are mushrooming too. It remains to be seen how OEMs tackle this issue soon.
