Xiaomi's new 'HyperCharge' tech can charge a phone in just 8 minutes

Xiaomi has also announced the world's fastest wireless charging tech.

What you need to know

  • Xiaomi has announced a new 200W "HyperCharge" fast charging solution for smartphones.
  • The new fast charging tech can fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in under eight minutes.
  • Along with 200W wired charging, Xiaomi has also introduced a new 120W wireless charging tech.

Xiaomi today showcased a new 200W "HyperCharge" fast charging tech, which it says can fully charge a phone in eight minutes. It used a modified Mi 11 Pro with a 4,000mAh battery to demonstrate the tech. Xiaomi was also the first smartphone maker to introduce a 100W fast charging solution. The company demonstrated the 100W "Super Charge Turbo" tech in March 2019, although the tech was commercialized only in August last year.

As can be seen in the video above, Xiaomi's new HyperCharge tech takes just three minutes to charge the modified Mi 11 Pro from empty to 50%. In addition to 200W HyperCharge wired fast charging system, Xiaomi has introduced a new 120W wireless charging solution as well. Xiaomi claims its latest wireless charging tech can fully charge a phone in just fifteen minutes.

Unsurprisingly, Xiaomi hasn't yet provided a timeframe as to when the first phone with the new 200W HyperCharge tech will hit the market. Currently, the fastest charging Xiaomi phone is last year's Mi 10 Ultra, which supports 120W wired charging speeds.

Seeing how the Mi 11 Ultra is a downgrade over the Mi 10 Ultra in the fast charging department, it may take a while before we see a Xiaomi flagship with 200W charging. It is also worth noting that such high charging speeds could have a significant impact on long-term battery health and also lead to overheating issues.

While Xiaomi hasn't launched a new phone with its 120W fast charging tech this year, its Black Shark brand released two new devices with 120W charging in March to challenge the best gaming phones. Vivo's iQOO sub-brand also launched a Snapdragon 888-powered flagship phone earlier this year with support for 120W fast charging.

Xiaomi has just shown off its latest fastest charging technology, which the company claims sets a world record for both wired and wireless charging speeds. Xiaomi says its new HyperCharging solution can charge a 4,000mAh battery with a wired charger in just 8 minutes or in 15 minutes with a wireless charger.

The company demonstrated a modified Mi 11 Ultra charging over a 200W wired charger. The video showed the phone reaching 10% from 0% in just 44 sec, 50% in 3 minutes, with the full charge coming in at just under 8 minutes. Meanwhile, the wireless charging demo shows the phone reaching 10% in 1 minute, 50% in 7 minutes, and 100% in 15 minutes.

England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score.
