Xiaomi had revealed last year that it was working on a 100W Super Charge Turbocharger, showing how it can top up a 4,000mAh battery from 0-100% in just 17 minutes. Now, Xiaomi has an even more powerful charger to showcase. This time the charger can top up a phone with 120W power.
The charger can be seen briefly in this video —
The 120W charger comes with the model number MDY-12-ED. It has a maximum output of 120W achieved with 20V power that passes through the charger. That’s the maximum limit defined by USB Power Delivery standards. Only this time, the charger uses 6A current, instead of 5A previously.
The charger also supports other charger speeds, starting from 15W and going up to 120W. There’s no word of a smartphone from Xiaomi that can support such high charging speeds, yet. But the race for the fastest charging is heating up.
Realme, Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi are currently embroiled in the fight to get the most powerful smartphone charger to the masses.
Realme teased a 100W SuperDart charger late last year, while Vivo showcased a 120W charger at MWC Shanghai last year. Vivo claimed its speed is slightly faster at 13 minutes to charge a 4,000mAh battery. While Xiaomi has not disclosed how fast its 120W charger can top up a 4,000mAh battery, it’s likely to take roughly the same time as Vivo’s.
Presently, the fastest charger is offered by Realme with the Realme X50 Pro at 65W. The same charger will be used in the upcoming Oppo Find X2 Pro flagship as well. Coming next is the iQOO 3 5G with a 50W charger. You can check out our charging speed comparison between these two chargers in the video embedded below.
