The Chinese manufacturer manages to bend the laws of physics with a fast charge with a peak power of 80 watts - without the need for direct connection of the smart device to the charger
We continue to gladly accept any development of smart battery charging capabilities in smart devices, as long as none of the dozens of lab technologies that claim to make us abandon lithium-ion and lithium-polymer do not really come close to maturity for commercial and mass use in the field - and now we have good reason to praise To be accurate (Xiaomi) which reveals capability wireless charging Maximum power that would have been considered fictitious even for wired charging until recently: 80 watts.
The successful company from the East surpasses its personal record by introducing an exciting 50-watt wireless charger for its Mi 10 Ultra models based on its dedicated high-speed wireless charger that supports up to 55 watts of power - and introduces another new charger that supports 45 percent increased maximum power. Which is capable of giving a device with battery Drains 50 percent capacity in just 8 minutes, on the way to a full charge in about 19 minutes.
This is an exciting shortcut compared to the capabilities of the Mi 10 Ultra, which featured wireless charging capability for more than 60 percent capacity in half an hour and a full and complete charge in less than 55 minutes - but it is worth noting that this comparison does not necessarily do justice to the model already sold in stores , Since it includes battery Internal with a capacity of 4,500mAh while proving the current capability of Shiomi was based on a prototype version of the Mi 10 Pro with battery With a smaller capacity of 4,000mAh. The relationship between capacity battery The agility with which it can be charged is not always direct and clear, but it is quite reasonable to estimate that with 80 watts of wireless charging as well סוללות Of 4,500mAh and 5,000mAh (which are becoming more common and popular to our delight) will be able to enjoy full capacity within peak times of about thirty minutes and maybe even less.
The announcement of the innovative technological demonstration on Shiomi's official blog in English does not provide too much technical detail, but a machine translation of the Chinese publications indicates that this is a flash similar to the one that allows us to enjoy wired charging at up to 120 watts (and the arm is still tilted) סוללות Internal charges that charge simultaneously and separately for a significant reduction in the duration of operation compared to a single battery that is limited in the currents in which it is able to operate.
Such internal structures offer less capacity for a given space compared to a single compartment, but hey - with a few minutes of charging on a nice-looking (and surprisingly compact, seemingly compact) desk stand for almost a full day of use, there will probably be quite a few consumers Let them accept the compromise with understanding and sympathy.
The new wireless charger and the smartphone that knows how to use its full capabilities are both early demo versions at this stage, and there is currently no official announcement of a target for commercial availability of the technology - we are pointing fingers that by 2021 we will launch leading smart devices that support 80 watts wireless charging. And also hope and convinced that To be accurate Not going to be left alone on this front for long with other actresses (Chinese, based on the experience of recent years) who are vigorously developing similar solutions of their own at these very moments.
The next big thing or just another unnecessary gimmick? Let's share in the comments.
