Xiaomi presents next Wednesday (15) the Xiaomi 11T Pro smartphone, a global model with HyperCharge technology at its peak. From there, the charger that comes with the model has 120W, more than double that of the Mi 11 accessory (55W).
The good thing is that charging from zero to 100% can take just over 20 minutes. The technology was adopted in China in 2020 and has already been used in exclusive models in the country or purchased by import. However, many consumers are still wary of this technology as it can quickly reduce battery life due to its intensity.
In an interview with The Verge’s website, Daniel Desjarlais, the company’s international head of communications, assured that many tests have been carried out by the manufacturer to ensure safety and performance, without bringing negative points that are unprecedented for consumers. .
The director also said there is an internal temperature control system and several other mechanisms that operate during the process. Thanks to these advances, he said, it will become more common over time to see chargers of 120W or more in affordable models.
“Usually at this charge level with the batteries we tested, you still have 80% battery life after 800 charge cycles. That 20% might seem like “oh, I’m losing 20%,” but that’s the pattern average for pretty much all charging technologies. And 800 cycles is about two years of use for most people. So it’s pretty solid,” he explains.
It is worth remembering that this controversy has already appeared before: after presenting the 200W HyperCharge and asking about the health of the batteries, the company confirmed that there was a degradation. However, the company also mentioned about 20% after 800 charge cycles.
