There's someone saying Xiaomi should focus on getting 5-6 days of heavy usage out of 5000mAh batteries. I don't think this people know anything about energy at all. Unless you get a tiny screen, underclocked processor and mean heavy usage as many hours of light loads usage and not playing all kinds of games, how are you expecting this to happen? Maybe yes, if you put a battery that runs at a nominal 15.2V instead of the normal 3.8V. That's the only way a 5000mAh battery would last 5-6 days... I wouldn't be surprised if this comment was made by a 13 year old indian, they're always the great minds behind this great ideas

And fast charging wasn't responsible for that fiasco, so you are still failing to provide any legit reason to avoid ultra fast charging.

YUKI93, 23 Jul 2021Exactly. Most people, especially mobile gamers, love to use... moreGaming when charging, even on 10W, is less than ideal. Gaming whilst charging for over an hour, even on 10-18W is far from ideal.

With fast charging, the gamer could recharge his/her phone whilst taking a toilet break or eating.

1 cell @ 4000 mAh capacity charging at 50W for a long time is not excatly much better than 4 cells @ 1000 mAh capacity each charging at 50W each for 1/4 the charging time.

Btw, the top speed a phone CAN charge isn't the only speed. Even if the device supports 200W charging, doesn't mean one must charge it at 200W. It's an option for those who prefer fast charging, like me.

You fast charging fear mongering people need to take a hike

Anonymous, 22 Jul 2021Are you suggesting no one wants their phone to be recharged... moremajority of mobile phone users can live without those crazy high W charging speed which degrade batteries faster

Very happy with 33Watt or even 66W chargers. Wish they can spend more research into battery technology.

8-minute fire starter?

That's my main concern here but if they figure that potential problem out it sounds great!

Aierlan, 22 Jul 2021I'll leave it at that. No point in discussing anything... moreYes, if knowledge is agression, then don't discuss.

rizki1, 22 Jul 2021cant wait this tech going to $200 xiaomi phone.yeah me too, but well we need to wait 1-2 years

I am happy with 5w charger

Do we really need chargers to be this fast though. They will degrade the battery quicker. We need to upgrade the battery tech so it can maintain charge for longer and so it doesn't degrade quicker as most phone batteries will last 2 years before degrading.

blue.sun, 22 Jul 2021Great... and useless, considering what I have written befor... moreI'll leave it at that. No point in discussing anything with anyone who is so aggressive

No because the simple minded masses are comfortable with stagnation and are incapable of imagining better most times

The only gimmick is your comment, while your comment will rot and die here fast charging will continue to develop without your support in the real world

And you yourself will likely be forced to use this same technology in your house etc in the future



James Whister, 22 Jul 2021Am I the only one who is satisfied with 18W charging in Htc... more18 watt? Wtf.. You're the only one
