Back in March / March last year, Xiaomi revealed to us for the first time that he was working on another major technological innovation in the form of the world's fastest 100 W charge for smartphones. According to the manufacturer, a smartphone with a 4000 mAh battery should be charged in just 17 minutes.
About technology Xiaomi Super Charge Turbo we haven't heard much since then, but it's still evolving.
There are several obstacles in the way
As the main representative of the Redmi brand, Lu Weibing published a statement on the pressure of fans on his Weibo profile, in which he explains the stage reached in the development of charging. Xiaomi Super Charge Turbo and what obstacles they face. It was the Redmi brand that took part in the development of this technology.
In his post, he says that the technology is not ready yet. In the way of development, they have to solve the following 5 complicated technological obstacles:
- Battery capacity loss: Director Redmi talks about an even greater loss of battery capacity, which is caused by such a fast charge. It is estimated that at 100 W charging, the loss of battery capacity is about 20% higher compared to fast charging 30 W PD. A battery with a capacity of 5 mAh will thus realistically offer 000 mAh.
- Technological realization: He didn't reveal much about this aspect, but said it required an ultra-high voltage charging scheme.
- Performance: The manufacturer faces the problem of how to make 100 W charging not only technically available, but also to ensure a long and sustainable charging time.
- security: When designing, of course, they must think about the safety features to protect the motherboard, batteries, they must prevent overcharging, overvoltage, etc.
- Combined charging: The company is also looking for the optimal way for several ways of charging, ie the combination of wired and wireless charging and the mutual compatibility of the charging adapter.
We believe that the development of this hitherto unexplored technology is definitely not easy. However, Lu Weibing also said that they have now reached the stage where 100 W Super Charge Turbo charging could go into series production.
Xiaomi can achieve world championship
Although the technology world is moving really fast, no other manufacturer is currently announcing the development of similarly fast charging for smartphones. The fastest charging with a power of 65 W is currently developed by the Chinese Oppo, which calls it SuperVOOC 2.0.
So far, this technology is included in their first commercially sold Oppo Reno Ace smartphone. The 4000 mAh battery can be charged in just 30 minutes with this technology.
If Xiaomi manages to release 100 W charging into real operation this year, it is almost certain that they will achieve a significant world championship. We definitely keep our fingers crossed for them.
