Xiaomi is working on mass production for 100W Super Turbo fast charging, according to a new revelation from the company’s President Lin Bin. Xiaomi had shared a video back in March this year, showing how the 100W fast charging would work on a 4000 mAh battery, which reaches full charge in just 17 minutes. The video had compared Xiaomi’s technology to Oppo’s 50W fast charging for a 3700 mAh battery.
According to China’s MyDrivers, Lin Bin confirmed this in a reply to a question on Weibo. A message to Lin Bin asked if the company’s “100W fast charge” was under mass production to which Lin Bin replied working hard, based on Google translation. Right now, Xiaomi’s Mi 9, which is the company’s latest flagship comes with 27W wired fast charging and 20W wireless flash charging. The company claims that the 27W wired fast charge is 37 per cent faster than 18W chargers.
Currently Oppo’s 50W SuperVOOC flash charging is the fastest level of wired charging technology available in the market. Oppo’s Find X Super Flash Edition, Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition, the R17 Pro are using this technology .
