Taking to Twitter to share the news, Xiaomi uploaded a clip of what it calls a “custom build” of the new Mi 11 Pro with a 4,000mAh battery on a wired charging dock, which managed to charge up to 10 percent in just 44 seconds, 50 percent in three minutes, and a full 100 percent in just eight minutes. The feat — which Xiaomi says is a new world record — is achieved through a new 200W fast-charging system, and the company has created a wireless version of it as well, pushing 150W and giving a full charge in only 15 minutes.
It’s not the first time the Chinese firm has dived deep into fast-charging technology. Two years ago, it unveiled a 100W system that could fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in 17 minutes, and last year it released the Mi 10 Ultra, which could charge 100 percent of its 4,500mAh battery in 23 minutes through a 120W charger.
