2019 has been a fruitful year for Xiaomi so far and with this recent update, it has dropped a bomb in the smartphone industry. Xiaomi’s president, Lin Bin recently announced that the company’s engineers have been able to achieve a breakthrough in the form 100W fast charging technology for smartphones.
Currently, the highest fast charging wattage available is 50W that was introduced by OPPO as SuperVOOC. Lin Bin uploaded a video on Weibo, that showed it only takes 17 minutes to charge a 4000 mAh battery with Xiaomi’s new 100W fast charging.
The video also showed a comparison with OPPO’s SuperVOOC. It was seen that while SuperVOOC charges the battery to 65 percent, Xiaomi’s Super Charge Turbo takes it to 100 percent in just 17 minutes.
Xiaomi’s president has also declared that for safety, the charging brick will be bulkier but for this kind of fast charging. However, a mere compromise like this can be made if a phone can actually offering such unbelievably fast charging tech.
This breakthrough in charging technology is really what the future holds. However, the above-mentioned information is what we know till now. Unfortunately, Lin Bin has not revealed much about the technology.

The Super Charge Turbo will be mass produced by Redmi for its new flagship and will be used in combination with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855.
