A few days ago, Xiaomi released a new generation of flagship models, the Xiaomi 12S series. This new flagship series from Xiaomi comes with a maximum of 120W fast charging technology. This is basically the first echelon of fast charging at present. However, Xiaomi is still developing higher-power fast charging. Less than a week after the release of the Xiaomi 12S series, the new Xiaomi 200W fast charger which far exceeds the 120W charger gets a new certification. According to @WHYLAB news, Xiaomi’s new generation of super flash charging adapter has passed 3C certification.
Xiaomi 200W charger – expect a full charge in less than 10 minutes
At present, the charging speed of the 120W fast charger has been compressed to just above ten minutes. The Xiaomi 200W fast charger may be able to further compress the charging time to less than ten minutes. Of course, Xiaomi 200W fast charging has higher requirements for the whole link such as battery capacity and chip. The company needs to specially optimize the charger for effective charging. Maybe some trade-offs on the body, such as a thicker body, smaller battery and so on.
It is also worth noting that Xiaomi already has a chip that can support 200W fast charging. When the Surge P1 was released, Xiaomi claims that it supports 200W wired charging technology and can fully charge a 4000 mAh battery in 8 minutes. At the earliest, this charger will come with the Xiaomi 13 or the Xiaomi MIX 5 series.
Of course, there are worries that the 200W fast charger may cause batteries to weaken quickly. However, this will likely not be the case because the company significantly optimize the charger. These optimizations will make the charger more effective. Furthermore, the charger will come with some protections which will likely protect the batteries of the smartphone from overcharging. As of now, there is no official launch date for this charger
