Xiaomi has called the new technology HyperCharge, and it’s got both wired and wireless variants. The wired method has the ability to charge a 4000mAh-battery phone at a rate of 200 Watts, according to the Chinese manufacturer, while the wireless reaches a charging rate of 120 Watts.
As the video shows, it took barely over three minutes to hit 50% capacity with the wired HyperCharge method, and 100% in a meager seven minutes and fifty-six seconds. With wireless “HyperCharging,” it took fifteen minutes on the dot to get the phone juiced up to 100%.
To avoid any misconceptions, it’s worth repeating that Xiaomi’s Hypercharge is not yet available in the smartphone market, as none of the devices out there today are built to support it—yet.
Naturally, such mind-boggling charging rates carry with them concerns of overheating and rapid degradation of battery health. We are looking forward to finding out more details about the technology behind HyperCharge, which we suspect will involve at least two separately charging batteries in order to support such speeds.
