Xiaomi has just launched a whopping 120W supercharger. Barely last year Xiaomi detailed a 100W Super Charge Turbocharger and gave more insight about it this February. Now the company instead seems to be preparing an even faster charger. It will not take long before it launches in the African Market, particularly in Cameroon, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.
The charger codenamed MDY-12-ED has a maximum output of 120W, which is achieved at 20V (the maximum standards set by USB Power Delivery). The difference with the previous charger is that the current can now go up to 6A (the official spec, however, tops out at 5A).
Also, other charging speeds are supported as well, starting from a respectable 15W and going up to 120W. Here is a photo so you can have a better look at the supported modes:
Back when Xiaomi was teasing the 100W charger (which has never been released to consumers), it claimed that it could fully charge a 4,000 mAh battery in just under 17 minutes. We expect this charger to likely be faster.
Price of the Xiaomi 120W SuperchargerXiaomi hasn't released pricing details. Once, they do so, we will let you guys know.
This surely goes beyond phones – 120W should be powerful enough for powerful laptops as well (a new Mi Notebook, perhaps?).
