The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer sets a new benchmark for fast charging - 210W

27 October 2022
Save for the faster charging and different battery capacity, the Explorer is identical to the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ (yes, including the 200MP camera).

Everybody talking about is it being safe or not to charge at these speeds, but if it's so great and proved safe to have those blazing fast charging speeds, then why are only Chinese brands have them? Isn't it strange? Why Samsung, Sony, Google or Apple doesn't have it?

Okay nevermind the iPhone because of their Lightning port limitations, but how come Samsung don't have it? The highest they got is 45W which is still about 50% lower then most of the budget models coming from Chinese beands. I mean, they (Samsumg) have a LOT of hardware stuff which they produce and sell to other brands and they aren't afraid to show big numbers for the sake of big numbers (108MP camera moduls), so what would be the reason why only Chinese OEMs are offering those crazy charging speeds? I have my own theory about that but I want to hear some thoughts from you guys. So please, anyone? Thanks in advance!

          These crazy charging speeds are like, dumbest thing on current phones. Who even wants to charge their phone that fast ? Upto 60W is okay but more than that is just a waste of efforts cause on a phone battery it doesn't really make a lot of difference but people are really impatient these days apparently

Its only chinese brands that add unnecessary numbers to their specs without it being practicable or really usefull irl. Nobody really cares if the next xiaomi phone has a 420mp camera with 420w charging. I guess you can call me an isheep or a samsung fanboy

                        Quote from the articles "With that in mind, a complete 0-100% charge with the Explorer takes only 9 minutes. By the 5 minute mark the phone is already at 66%."

                        How the miserable 5w charge after 80% onwards get to full in just 4 minutes???! This basically same for all fast charge tech nowadays, it might slow down after certain time BUT it never really effect the experience. My phone just reached 100% from 80% in just 15 minutes using 65w tech. And the phone only warm and never heat up during charges.

                            Actually, 5000mAh with 120W in Note 12pro+ is anytime better than this 4300mAh with 210W in Note 12 Explorer Edition....
                            (5000mAh+120W) > (4300mAh+210W)

                              Xiaomi really loves seeing people buying their phone every year. No thanks, but I rather take 5,000mAh battery instead of 210W charging. Better put that 210W charging on a Windows laptop.

                                And with 20W charging why would I need more? The superfast only works up to 80% of battery then goes down to miserable 5W anyway. So it has no benefit for me.

                                  apple zombies trolls wait no time to talk garbage whenever they see a Xiaomi phone giving great value at such a price than apple. even Xiaomi gives a very good charging package. If apple had even something close to the charger of Xiaomi, they would priced that icharger over 150$.
                                  every apple mad relatives I have talk too much. apple face id is that, apple dynamic island is this, apple 5 watt charger is the perfect balance for battery health.....
                                  all talks. Some common characteristics of them:
                                  1. none of them use face ID but pin lock. why? because anyone can take their phone, put it to their face and bang, inside their phone. so for privacy they don't use that "not at all gimmick great apple face id INNOVATION".
                                  2. they talk and talk and talk about great apple camera. so I ask them to show me what great photos they have taken by their apple. But their galleries are full with hundreds and hundreds of selfies and photos they take in front of their mirror. I am sure they take the mirror photo just to prove that they have iphone in their hands. And most of selfies taken by my female relatives doesn’t even utilizes the selfie cam. Because they take selfies using some anime like "cute" filters.
                                  3. whenever I go to their house. I see them using their phone while charging at the same time. they too know how poor battery life their great iphones have.
