In Mainland China — MyDrivers, a blogger based in China, reports that Xiaomi’s 200W HyperCharge will start in June next year. If this is true, we may expect the Mi 12 Ultra to use the feature since the flagship lineup is being released in Q2 or Q3.
This technology was introduced in May of this year, but Xiaomi kept its secrets hidden as to when it will be mass-produced. As it was introduced, some people raised their eyebrows about the safety of the technology. Since Xiaomi kept its mouth shut during those times, speculations around the tech community are circulating as to how fast this feature can degrade its battery.
And now, an official said that the new fast charging technology involves up to 40 safe and active protective measures from the charger facility to the motherboard facility and the battery. These safeguards features are primarily taken from charging temperature, charging voltage, and charging current, and the full charging protocol to assure safety.
Also, Xiaomi also uses multiple heat dissipation technology to support, under the 200W+120W fast charging power. It can still do good heat dissipation control.
In addition, Xiaomi has also developed a 10C super-rapid charging chemical method for 200W that safeguards the battery components to the fullest extent possible. After 800 cycles, the battery energy remains at more than 80%, greatly exceeding the national battery life standard of 400 cycles. 60% should be kept.
Although for now, the top charging technology of Xiaomi is 120W, which is available on Mi 11 Ultra.
