When we talk about wireless charging technology, Xiaomi is on top of its game. Back in August, the company released the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra which comes with a 50W wireless charging capacity. This is the highest wireless charging capacity from Xiaomi. However, not anymore. This morning, the company officially announced its 80W wireless charger which comes with some major improvements. The 80W wireless charger is the first-ever wireless charger with 80W capacity.
According to Xiaomi, this charger delivers 50% in just 8 minutes and 100% in 19 minutes. This charging capacity is for a 4000 mAh battery. This is quite fast and interesting considering that 4000 mAh capacity is the new industry average for the Android camp. Many flagship Android smartphones make use of batteries around the 4000 mAh vicinity.
Zeng Xuezhong, vice president of Xiaomi Group and president of the mobile phone department, introduced the Xiaomi 80W wireless charger.
According to Zeng Xuezhong, Xiaomi has specially customized a more efficient wireless charging architecture and chip. This charger comes with an independent composite coil system design. It also uses an MTW multi-pole fast-charging batteries, dual 6C series batteries, with multi-stage variable current control. Furthermore, this device supports MiFC fast charging. According to the Xiaomi executive, the charger achieves the full charge in 19 minutes (for a 4000 mAh battery) with “many acceleration technologies”.
In addition, the wireless charging base uses a high-speed silent fan. This means that we can actually charge efficiently without hearing any sound. At least, this is what the charger promises. This charger is a high-power charging device that supports fast charging and low heat generation throughout the process. At the same time, it can still maintain more than 90% of the effective capacity after 800 complete charging and discharging without sacrificing battery health.
Xiaomi 80W wireless charger – the journey so far

In March 2020, the 40W wireless fast charging technology arrived while the 50W technology hit the shelf in August 2020. Now, we are talking about the 80W Xiaomi wireless fast charging technology.
