Xiaomi charges a smartphone in 8 minutes

The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is breaking records with its new charging system, tested internally.

After Huawei, which had managed to charge a smartphone in 10 minutes with a prototype 200 W charging technology, it is Xiaomi's turn to break speed records with its “HyperCharge” system (also 200 W).

Wired and wireless charging record beaten

The Chinese manufacturer has thus managed to charge a modified Mi 11 Pro smartphone with a 4000 mAh battery in 8 minutes.

It remains to be seen when these technologies will leave the labs to reach consumers. And also what will be the lifespan of such a small battery subjected regularly to this mode…
