The battery today is still one of the hardware components that evolves with less speed compared to the rest of the hardware of smartphones. For years manufacturers have tried to increase the life of batteries, but since it is a very complex task, recently all they are betting on the speed of the load, a section in which, if we have seen great progress, and everything seems to indicate that Xiaomi has managed to take it to another level.

Perhaps as a preview of his great event tomorrow, March 26, and as a stone in the shoe of the presentation tomorrow of the Huawei P30, Bin Lin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi, has posted a surprising video on his official Weibo account, where he introduces us its new fast charging technology called Super Charge Turbo, which as we see is capable of charging a 4,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes.

In the video we see a heads-up between Xiaomi Super Charge Turbo charging a 4,000mAh battery, and OPPO’s Super VOOC charging a 3,700mAh battery that reaches 65% in 17 minutes (an excellent time in any case ) while that of Xiaomi reaches 100%. Although OPPO’s technology is the fastest on the market today, its 50W charging power they can’t compete against 100W of power of this new Xiaomi bet.

To date Xiaomi had relied on Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology in its smartphones with Snapdragon processors, however, everything seems to indicate that Super Charge Turbo is going to be your new standard for fast charging from now on at least for its top of the range.

At the moment we do not have more technical details of how Xiaomi’s new Super Charge Turbo technology operates, beyond being a 100W charger with 20V and 5A output, something surprising for a wall charger. So we will have to wait for tomorrow, so that Xiaomi lets us know in which equipment it plans to implement it, and what hardware requirements will be necessary for it to work.
