Xiaomi launches Mi 30W Wireless Charger in India: price, features

Xiaomi returned to the Indian flagship segment with the launch of its Mi 10 smartphone in the country today. The Xiaomi Mi 10 is the only smartphone in India after the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra to come flaunting a powerful 108-megapixel camera on the back. Notably, the latest flagship is also the second smartphone in the country after the OnePlus 8 Pro to offer 30W fast wireless charging.

To let users get the best out of the flagship, the smartphone brand has also launched the Xiaomi Mi 30W wireless charger in the country. The Xiaomi offering is quite similar to OnePlus’s Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger, both in terms of looks as well as features.

The Xiaomi Mi 30W Wireless Charger comes in a stand form factor just like the OnePlus offering. Xiaomi claims that the wireless charger can charge the Mi 10 from 0 to 100 percent in just 76 minutes. To put things into perspective, the OnePlus Warp Charge 30W wireless charger takes 30 minutes to charge the OnePlus 8 Pro from 0 to 50 percent. However, users are required to use the 33W wall adapter with the wireless charger for fast charging.

Just like OnePlus charger, the Mi 30W wireless charger also features a built-in fan for heat dissipation throughout the charging cycle. The Xiaomi wireless charger also features foreign object detection to protect the charger from shorting when there’s a metal object on its surface. On the topic of protection, the Mi 30W wireless charger features 5-layer protection including over-voltage, over-current, over-temperature, under-voltage and static.

Design-wise, the charger comes with silicon non-slip footpad and silicon phone holder so both the charger and phone are securely placed. The Mi 30W wireless charger can also charge through 3mm thickness, which means you can charge your smartphone through a case. Speaking of which, the charger is Qi-compatible, which means it can charge other Qi-enabled devices. However, the speed is capped at 10W.

Mi 30W Wireless Charger price in India

The Mi 30W wireless charger has been priced at Rs 2,299 but will be available for Rs 1,999 for those pre-booking it. Notably, this is half the price of OnePlus Warp Charge 30W wireless charger, which retails for Rs 3,990.
