The Closest thing to a replaceable battery in my opinion.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2019Because Warranties does not existBecause warranties do not cover normal wear and tear from use. Pretty sure battery degradation due to repeated use of Super Charging is not gonna be covered by warranty if its defined as normal wear and tear from use.
The 100W charging power would be just its theoretical maximum on perfect conditions. In real world scenario, the charging will throttle due to heat production. Throttling is not a bad scenario, because heat management is important when charging Lithium based batteries. All in all, it's a remarkable tech.
I'm still hoping that smartphone manufacturers would implement a full-charge limit just so users can decide what percentage of the battery charge the charger should stop.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2019Haha Xiaomi hope people like you exist. You have to understand the limitations and comp... moreWell I would say that people with the same mentality as you would never improve the charging industry overall. The 100W light bulb comparison is even wrong, your mindset were stuck in incandescent past while technology were now having 100W LED bulbs, they were pretty cool when fitted properly.
Jack, 26 Mar 2019It's crazy to me that a company like Xiaomi, which is embroiled in so many data theft scandals... moreIt's also crazy that people only think that when China sends data to their servers, it's a breach of security but when NSA does it, its just normal. Lols.
whitec0llar, 26 Mar 2019Isn't it risky ?Not at all, as I won't buy it.

If heat is managed properly then it will be as good as any other quick charge solution we currently have.
Would love my next super Xiaomi phone getting charged in 17 minutes.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2019shouting " i trust them and you should too" is so smart............Well man i tried to be fair and clear thats it.
It's crazy to me that a company like Xiaomi, which is embroiled in so many data theft scandals and is blatantly owned and operated by the Chinese military, is not getting in any trouble. Stop covering this brand please. Same goes for Huawei.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2019Charge fast, wear out fast. Nope. Charging fast versus slow has nothing to do with battery degradation.
wisdom, 26 Mar 2019Hopefully this tech comes in a mid ranger soon. Waiting for a long time for this techThis isnt a tech . Just some number race that reduce safety concern .
While it is impressive to see a smartphone packing a 4000mAh battery being fully charged in just 17 minutes, I'm kind of concerned about the heat management of the charger to be honest. It's fine if they lower the voltage and increase the amperage, but the fact that it's 20V/5A makes it look worrying
Hopefully this tech comes in a mid ranger soon. Waiting for a long time for this tech
