A few month in the past, we shared a narrative about Redmi’s showcase of 300W charging. No typo there, that insane triple-digit quantity is just about factual on this case. And that phrasing isn’t any joke both, as the corporate launched a video, which just about exhibits the tech in motion. In it, a Redmi Note 12 Discovery, outfitted with a customized 4,100W battery, will get stuffed up in below 5 minutes!
When the video was initially uploaded, most customers who noticed it thought that it was only a proof of idea. In any case, us techies have just about grown accustomed to seeing superior concepts that — sadly — don’t all the time get translated into precise merchandise.
A snapshot from the demo video, showcasing the 300W tech in motion.
This, nonetheless, may not be the case with Redmi’s 300W charging knowhow. Digital Chat Station — a prolific Chinese language tipster with a stable observe report — implied by way of Weibo (translated supply) that Redmi just about plans to mass produce… it?
Why “it”? Effectively, as a result of we don’t know the place this 300W charging tech will land. In any case, the phone within the demo vid was customized construct that’s not obtainable en masse. Past that, we’ve obtained no imminent announcement to go off of.
In all actuality, the precise charging velocity showcased by no means peaked at 300W, so that’s nonetheless a theoretical restrict. From the video that Redmi launched, we will see charging speeds that float across the 260W mark. That being stated, the tech remains to be quick sufficient to drecrown than the present holder of the “World’s Quickest Charging Phone” title, the Realme GT3.
The controversy associated to quick charging speeds total remains to be underway: do we actually want such excessive charging capabilities? Effectively, we will’t touch upon the necessity (for velocity!). However we will certainly say that it’s overkill within the finest attainable approach.
