Xiaomi has officially introduced its 80W Mi Wireless Charging technology after making headway with the development of 40W and 50W fast charging standards from earlier this year. As per Xiaomi, the new 80W fast wireless charging technology can charge a 4,000mAh battery from 0-100% in just 19 minutes.
Much like other smartphone brands, Xiaomi too has been at the forefront of developing its proprietary fast-charging solutions and this next generation of wireless fast charger is a result of the increasing competition in this particular aspect of smartphones. The company currently sells a 30W wireless charger in India that it launched alongside the Mi 10, earlier this year. Popular leakster Digital Chat Station has posted an image of the 80W Mi Wireless Charger online that gives us another look at the charging dock.
In comparison to the latest 80W wireless charging technology, the 30W charger was capable of recharging a phone from 0-100% in 69 minutes. Fast-forward to August 2020, Xiaomi announced its 50W fast wireless charging technology that could recharge the 4,500mah battery of the Mi 10 Ultra fully in 40 minutes.
“The introduction of 80W Mi Wireless Charging Technology is expected to set a new benchmark not only in the area of wireless charging but in charging as a whole. Xiaomi has been spearheading this trend by recognizing the importance of battery life and faster charging for the future development of smartphones,” Xiaomi wrote on a blog post.

Back in July, Oppo announced a 65W AirVOOC fast wireless charging pad that was capable of topping-up a 4,000mAh phone fully in 30 minutes. However, with this latest breakthrough by Xiaomi, we have a new fast wireless charging standard on the block.
The company is yet to announce a phone that natively supports 80W fast wireless charging technology but knowing Xiaomi, we can expect it to land upon its next flagship smartphone, whenever that is.
