Xiaomi had a couple of huge announcements today. Nope, no new devices. Even better, the company revealed some firsts in wireless charging technology.
Xiaomi unveiled the 30W fast wireless charging technology, which easily beats the current 20W standard.
This new charging tech utilizes a 4:1 direct-charge architecture and other latest tech that allows for better efficiency, faster charging times, while also keeping the temperatures at a minimum.
The company claims that a 30W fan-cooled wireless charger can fill half of a 4,000mmAh battery in only 25 minutes, and a full 100% charge in just 69 minutes. This feature is expected to arrive on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G.
If you’ve used devices like the Huawei P30 Pro or the Galaxy S10, you might have used its reverse wireless charging to help top up a friend’s battery. However, I bet you’re also aware of how slow it can recharge a device.
Xiaomi will also use dual-band transmission technology. Which will separate the power and data transmission while wireless charging. This means there will be less chance of Bluetooth communication loss while wireless charging.
That’s what Xiaomi is trying to fix that by upping the reverse charging speeds to 10W. The company also added different protection features (over-current and over-voltage) to ensure that it’s not only reliable but also safe.
These latest innovations will be found on the recently announced Xiaomi 30W Fan-Cooled Wireless Charging Stand and 20W Smart Tracking Wireless Charging Pad. Also, as I stated earlier, they will be present on the upcoming Mi 9 Pro 5G.
While 30W is already impressive, Xiaomi claims that they are already working on a 40W wireless charging technology. All these innovations shall compliment the emergence of ultra-fast 5G connectivity.
