The incoming Xiaomi 11T Pro is going to support 120W fast charging. But there have been concern that this type of fast charge will be harmful to the batteries of smartphones. However, according to a new report from The Verge, a representative of Xiaomi has come out to explain this technology and its effects on battery.

According to the report, Daniel Desyarle who is head of the international public relations department of Xiaomi answered questions regarding the 120W fast charge. He said that, the Xiaomi 11T Pro will use a dual-cell battery.

Desyarle compared this solution to the simultaneous filling of two independent gasoline tanks in a car. So, instead of rather slow charging through one channel, energy is supplied through several channels at once, allowing you to quickly fill the battery.

He also added that using such fast charging does not lead to increased battery wear. To confirm the long term effects of 120W fast charging on battery, Xiaomi conducted numerous tests and made sure that when using a 120W adapter, the battery retains 80% of its original capacity after 800 charge cycles.

When asked if the use of slower chargers would improve the situation, Daniel assured that the difference would be very small. But he said that if you’re going to charge the smartphone overnight, then in this case it is still worth using a less powerful adapter. According to him, the only compromise users will have to face is the slightly larger size of the charger.

Aside from 120W fast charge, Xiaomi has already introduced 200W fast HyperCharge which can charge a smartphone from 0 to 100% in about 8 minutes. Xiaomi is not the only company testing fast charging, Infinix Mobile also introduced the 160W fast charging. Huawei also has the 135W fast charging tech.

With the launch of the Xiaomi 11T Pro set for September 15th, Desyarle confirmed that the 120W fast charge has been tested and ready for commercial use. We’ll like to see how this works in real life when the phone debuts.

  1. As good as this sounds, Xiaomi is not providing a safety Data Sheet for this battery as a prequalification for shipment to many states. Perhaps these are only being produced for the local market.
