Various mid-range and high-end phones are now available with large-sized batteries. In a bid to reduce charging times, Chinese smartphone manufacturers have been offering proprietary fast charging technologies. For instance, the recently-launched Vivo iQOO gaming phone comes with 44W fast charging for its 4,000mAh battery. OPPO’s SuperVOOC fast charging technology brings 50W rapid charging on the R17 Pro and Find X Lamborghini Edition. The Huawei Mate X is equipped with 55W Super Charge technology which can charge its 4,500mAh battery in just 35 minutes. To raise the competition bar higher, Xiaomi has announced its 100W Super Charge Turbo technology that can charge a smartphone in less than 20 minutes.
Xiaomi President Lin Bin has shared a video on Weibo to demonstrate the company’s 100W Super Charge Turbo technology alongside 50W SuperVOOC charging tech by OPPO. As can be seen below, the SuperVOOC charging that works at 10V/5A charges the 3,700mAh battery to 65 percent in 17 minutes. However, the 100W Super Charge Turbo technology from Xiaomi can charge a smartphone with 4,000mAh battery to full capacity in the same time duration. And it takes only 7 minutes for the smartphone to gain 50 percent battery power.
Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing commented on the same Weibo video post to confirm that Redmi will take lead in mass producing the 100W fast charging technology. This suggests that a future Redmi phone may feature the new tech. However, Xiaomi is yet to reveal the details of the technology, and it remains to be seen which phone from the Chinese manufacturer will be the first to arrive with the new 100W Super Charge Turbo charging tech.
