Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has unveiled wireless charging technology that can top-up a 4,000mAh battery in just 19 minutes, as handset manufacturers scramble to roll out such chargers to win over the hearts of time-conscious consumers.

The 80W technology can also juice a standard 4,000mAh battery — one of the most common types — to 10% and 50% in just one minute and eight minutes respectively, Xiaomi said in a WeChat post on Monday.

The announcement comes two months after the launch of Xiaomi’s new flagship smartphone, the Mi 10 Ultra, which comes with a 50W wireless charger that can fully charge its 4,500mAh battery from empty in 40 minutes.

However, Xiaomi did not disclose when a phone compatible with the new 80W wireless charging technology will come out.

Xiaomi’s push into wireless charging dates back to March 2018, when the company launched the Mi Mix 2S phone that came with 7.5W wireless charging technology.

Xiaomi’s domestic rivals including Oppo and Huawei have also been delving into fast wireless charging for a while. In July this year, Oppo announced 65W wireless charging technology which it claimed is able to fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in 30 minutes.
