    It actually "only" runs 96W on 100-120V AC. This is the fine print on Xiaomi's site: *Maximum output power will be 120W with 220~240V input; Maximum output power will be 96W with 100~120V input. Maximum output power may not be 120W based on different voltage input in some regions." So charging in 20 min instead of 15 makes sense.

    7:20 In fact, Xiaomi uses a trick in its software, which activates the maximum charging potential when the screen is off. This way you don't create overheating. This is repeated on all their devices with fast charging, starting at 33W.

    By moving most of the regulation and power circutry from the phone to the charger, it is going to move a majority of the heat away from the phone thus prolonging the life of the battery. Couple that with ultra low internal battery resistance with higher current handleing cell technologies and it may provide similar if not reduced cell degradation since the battery is charged faster and has less time to heat up and stay hot during the charging process. The biggest thing that would help prolong the useable life of the battery in almost any phone is to have the phone default to a long life mode out of the box that charges to 80% but reports 100% to the user and goes into low power reserve mode with a user reminder to charge at 20%. Then let the user decide if they want to have longer battery life or more battery capacity available. The other thing that would prolong the phone is to make it easy for an end user to replace the battery when it does finally drop into that 70-75% area of original capacity since below that area is when cell failure rates tend to increase. A good consumer cellphone should have a useable life of 5-6 years minimum and 10 years or more on the high end, professional, commercial and industrial side of things. Their is no good reason for the overwhelming majority of cellphone users to replace a phone more often than this since the cellular technology does not change all that often. 4G hasn't even been fully deployed in many areas and it will likely be a decade or more before 5G is available nearly everywhere in North America. Every cellphone company should be held to a minimum performance spec to even call something a smartphone at the time of sale and they should provide users the most efficient and stripped down versions of whatever OS is running on the phone so that they stay snappy longer preventing the need for useless upgrades. I think back to the not so distant past where feature phones were what most people had and they could go through 10-15 years of updates without really getting any slower. Granted they ran less crap on the whole but that is what current cellphones should be emulating, being as efficient as possible with the hardware that the phone has.

      @Arthur Hilado The issue below 70% is that the chance of catastrophic failure increases at an ever-accelerating rate for the majority of lithium chemistries once they start falling below 70-75% of their original capacity. That is why they are considered end of life by most manufacturers at or below this point. Some will develop partial short in the separator that increases the rate of self-discharge (heaters), some will develop a drastic short that causes them to heat up and expand or puff up breaking the short, some will continue to expand and heat up until the cell vents which may end in fire or just a bunch of gas leaving the cell depending on conditions and cell chemistry, and others will continue to work down to a point where the cell is just not very useful any more but regardless of the failure mode they will all eventually fail so it is best to replace them before they have the increased potential to fail in any of these modes. Fast charging could be pretty scary if you have a cell failure due to a short in the separator material while charging at such a fast rate.

    • Arthur Hilado
      Arthur Hilado

      Thing is, when the battery degrades to 70% capacity, as long as it still charges as fast as this, it still isn't a problem. Charging happens a bit more often, but it's in shorter cycles.

      My xiaomi phones tend last 3.5 years on me. I have went the following... Xiaomi redmi 3s pro, 3.5 years, screen intact, upgraded due to switching cell carrier and needing lte b28, second phone redmi note 5, 3 years bought it used after almost a year from release. Screen still intact use it for Google authentication and crypto wallet backup. Upgraded due to mmc storage performance degredation. Bought a mi 11 lite 5g, have it for 3 months, love the oled. 33w charging seems grate and does not hear up phone. 64mp Camera is insane and pulls good shots and vids even it terrible light and stereo speakers are a game changer

    I saw a video recently where someone proved that fast charging isn't inherently going to damage your battery, regardless of the speed. The issue is heat, which can be mitigated with a phatt charging brick.

    • Garfish
      Garfish

      A charger simply being larger does absolutely nothing for how hot a phone gets, that's not how it works. That only applies to the warpcharge 30T charger with compatible OnePlus phones, which MKBHD says is because they've integrated some of the battery management hardware into the charger so there's less power management happening in the phone itself. So that won't work with any other phone that isn't "T charging certified". It's all dependant on how the manufacturer has designed the phone and it's specific charger to work with it. Still a pretty cool concept though and I'm a fan of anything that improves battery life.

    • HolyDevil
      HolyDevil

      @Rubiconnn The bigger brick does help generate less heat in the phone. Go watch MKBHD's vid. He explains all this.

    • Rubiconnn
      Rubiconnn

      A larger charging brick isn't going to cool your phones battery. I have a big aluminum bracket on my desk that I place my phone on when it is fast charge to pull away some of the heat.

      the best part of it is, that with the same charger, but a different UBS cable, you can make it stop using 120W, bcoz the USB cable has a chip taht tells the charger what power it can take.

      @Piotr Daniel Working on 110v requires the primary side to handle double the current compared to a 220v supply. Unless they specifically overengineered the primary for 110v it may put out less current

    • Overlooked Undead
      Overlooked Undead

      @ajddavid452 because your PSU is a little bit of a different machine than a phone charger, it has an active cooling fan and is like 6 times the size for a reason. Also its not outputing all those 600w on a single rail so its basically just multiple 100-200w powersupplys.

    • neilbradley
      neilbradley

      @srg Not if you increase the amperage/ lower the resistance. Also, in modern switching power supply design, the input voltage/amperage should be a huge "don't care" by how little wattage there is to supply, and switching supplies provide more or less based on the load. Whether it's 240VAC or 120VAC on input should be irrelevant to the output wattage.

    Think I know what my next phone is gonna be. Although saying that I already had a Redmi Note 10 5G, so like it was gonna be on my radar because I was surprised at how not bad it was for like £180 for the phone, and I don't mind the extra £100 for 4GB vs 8GB of RAM and LCD vs AMOLED although the 4500mAh battery is a tiny bit dissapointing vs the 5000mAh battery in the Note 10 5G although due to the processor being built on a newer node the battery life probably isn't that dissimilar. And yeh I'm not all that hot on the 120W charging, damn even 22.5W charging was although for me, 45W would be about where I would say you are "good enough" 65W I can see the utility for some people, 120W, like I'm almost always near a plug so like sometimes I want a 5W charger so I don't charge my phone to 100% by accident when I am busy working or doing something... LIKE I DID JUST NOW!!! and thats just a 22.5W charger.

    as far as I understand it only charges 120w if you request it to but usually it defaults to a lower wattage anyways. also technically there are two cells in the phone which means that they are only charged at 60w each anyways which is not too vad

    • Marian Kis
      Marian Kis

      @kiss peter xiaomi stated that they didn't made waterproof phones till xiaomi mi 11 ultra because based on their warranty / service stats, they've observed that less than 15% of phones returned for repair were water damage, so they said it's pointless to almost double the price to waterproof the phone for only a maximum of 15% of clients. We, consumers, should be more responsible for our actions, currently, over 85% of consumer pay the price for a waterproof design while in the daily life they will never use it. Just like "under water photography" which still needs an underwater protective case, even if the smartphone is already waterproof. But yeah, the comeback of replaceable batteries would be nice.

    Xiaomi phones are great. I have a Poco (Xiaomi subsidiary) F3 5G 256GB with a Snapdragon 870 and I'm super happy with it. Paid 269€ (nice). It does even have a 120Hz AMOLED screen instead of the TN or IPS panels that are common for this price tier. The only thing that could improve is the software, but since the bootloader is unlockable, this is not a biggie for me.

    I have the Redmi Note 10 Pro and I have to say it is great value for money. I feel like battery life is the same as the first day, one year ago. It gets me through the day easily (social media, IRglo, ~1 hour of talking, data on throughout the day, a couple of work related apps, location and Bluetooth always on). Hardware specs are great for the price, but MIUI is a problem. It feels laggy sometimes, especially when in Settings. If Xiaomi manages to improve MIUI without changing the pricing of their models, their Redmi Note line will be the absolute best value for money phones out there.

    2:31 So true and it's still a deal breaker for me even though I begrudgingly bought an Xiaomi Pad 5 even though it didn't have expandable storage. I've started to come around on the headphone jack - sacrificing the audio quality of my Sennheiser IE8 (though USB-C to audio adaptor is a solution) for the convenience and noise cancelling of bluetooth headphones. However, I'm still a dinosaur with 100+GB of weeb music on an SD card which won't all be on Spotify so expandable storage is still a must for me.

      @Jorge Aura it’s great when a phone gets used for awhile, say 5 years. But the average length of ownership for a smartphone is about 2.75 years. Most people usually replace their phone around then so that’s what manufacturers cater too. If a phone works great and you don’t need any new tech put in the phone, just spend a little and replace the battery and it should be off to the races. In your case, that’s money well spent. But I definitely wouldn’t worry about charging my phone to 100 and running it low.

    I wonder if the speed advertised is for an EU home wall socket (230 volts), vs the American standard (120 volts). Thank you diligent people in the comments. The charger is listed as “Maximum output power will be 120W with 220~240V input; Maximum output power will be 96W with 100~120V input. Maximum output power may not be 120W based on different voltage input in some regions." Proprietary software and hardware in the charger and phone with a strict efficiency limiter is perhaps the cause. (speculation from others in the comments)

      @Error989 i done this researc, i dididn't see anything like this plug before, is strage looking, but is only jugoslavian 380v plug, i'm italian and for 380v and very old plug i see only the standard plug 5 or 4 pin in red plastic. For standard civil application in Europe is 1 fase, but if you have some thing that is in 3 fase and you need it you can have it.

      ​@eLNeroDiablo it's not the capacity of wiring, but the wire of the transformer and semiconductor itself. the transformer designed for 220v with thinner wire, so with 120v it will generate more heat as more current through, then the charger will throttle.

    • eLNeroDiablo

      I mean, 120W at 220-240V is at minimum 0.5A (up to 0.55A on 220V), whilst 96W on 110-120V is 0.8-0.87A. If the phone told the brick "Hey, gimme 120W, I dun care it's 110-120V mains! I want 120W!" then the brick would be pulling 1-1.1A (or double the 220-240V line's amperage). [note: The amperage ratings for 110V and 220V are rounded up to a round multiple of 5, despite what calculators would tell you if you actually crunched the numbers yourself.] Most buildings are wired with like 10A or maybe 15A fuses (for high-draw circuits) for each circuit, so that brick pulling 120W on 110-120V mains (yes - I know that houses in the US and Canada are actually 230-240V from the transformer, but most circuits in houses only use 110-120V in the breaker box as a breaker for a 240V circuit takes 2 slots in the box! I have seen that video by Alec on Technology Connections!) is using up-to 10% of the circuit's amperage capacity on a 10A circuit whilst on a 220-240V pains with 10A breaker and fuses that 120W brick is only 5% of the capacity.

      @Piotr Daniel SMPS are not all alike, and a charger optimized for one voltage will be slightly less efficient on another. And that can be the difference between crossing and not crossing your thermal budget limit.

    For anyone looking to buy this, make sure you're getting the one with the 120w hypercharge and the Dimensity 920 and NOT the version with the Snapdragon. Xiaomi had already released a phone under this name in India. This phone was released as the Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge in India (which imo is a much better name than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G). The link in the description does not lead to the correct device.

    I just want to add that you have battery protection in place like @DigitalIP mentioned BUT if you don't care at all, you can set battery to YEET mode, which extends full speed charge time, and will slow down later (not completely off). there is a warning about lowering battery life, but if you want this for at most 2 years, it should not break it, and you will have incredible charging most of the time. IMHO 150W is great feature when you are in rush and your phone is absolutely dead. Connect it to laptop charger and get it back to life within few minutes. its not like we use that ALL the time, but at least few times in 2 years you will need extra 20% battery like RIGHT NOW.... 5/12/20W charger overnight and 100W+ for emergency, when you overslept to work, and your phone was running HBO whole night and now is 5% battery.... I am using 30W older version and comparing to my wife Iphone, that's already superbly useful. I literally don't use power banks anymore, while she have to keep charged one in her bag all the time... I really consider those, just for big battery and fasteeeeeeeeeeeeeer charge combo.

    Been using the 120w charging on my Xiaomi 11T Pro. It’s amazing tech and apparently the effect is fine. But if possible I do try to fast charge it at a slower measly 31w with my Anker charger. I only use the 120w if I really need a super quick top up.

      I've been using my realme with 55w vooc charge for almost 2 years. Lately i soft bricked my phone because i jumped update through recovery mode. Possibly because of OS difference, it actually hard stuck on recovery mode until the battery dies. BUT it doesnt die though it already show 0%. And it still going for like 1 hour+ until it truly blacked out. Man, im proud of my phone battery still way healthier than i expect though been using vooc quick charge for years.

      Also the 11T Pro that we use have a dual cell battery setup, so its basically juicing it up with 60 watts for each cell in parallel, not really that worrisome compared to 67w single cell phone batteries. I use 120W daily and on accubattery my health is still 100% after 2 months of using it, I just dont abuse my phone when gaming (I maintain battery temperature to 40 degrees and below) and 120W doesnt heat up the phone (up to 40-42 tops on a hot day in the Philippines) but it does heat up the power brick since thats where most of the fast charging shenanigans take place

    • Saeren D

      @Dean N have you actually read how some of these technologies work? Rapid charging based on voltage like Qualcomm's QC increases heat in the cell much more than rapid charging based on current like Oppo/OnePlus use. My OnePlus 9 is cooler when charging with 65W than my iPhone is with 12W. The electronics are in the charging brick instead of the phone so the heat is mostly there instead. Oppo has a video that explains how their tech works, it's worth a watch. Also their 65W tech uses two batteries of the same capacity. I hardly ever hear anyone complaining about battery degradation with OnePlus devices that use Warp charging.

    • Dean N
      Dean N

      @N C that’s just straight up false. Yeah, there are some measures to reduce the damage that fast charging causes to the battery, like cutting off at 80% SoC, but if you charge a lithium ion battery at 4C, there is going to be damage no matter what. Every time you fast charge a battery like that, you reduce your battery life by a number of full cycles.

  • Sleepy Dobe
    Sleepy Dobe

    I have a question though: For brand new phones, do we still follow the manual and charge it fully first to 100% before using, or charge it up to only 80% before using, in order to help protect the battery and ensure battery longevity?

    • M.K.
      M.K.

      I usually topped it to a 100% then drain it till 0. After that, continue using it by charging to 80, use it till 15 then off again to 80 and repeat.

  • Smokeyninja

    6:40 The upper limit depends on the designed function of the battery, the higher the max charge for the cell, the lower the percentage you want to stop charging at. A peak 4.25v charged to 90% will have similar wear to a 4.35v battery charged to 70%. The reason manufacturers charge their L-ion cells to higher voltages is that it inflates the total charge to discharge time, but the higher voltage results in instability within the cell reducing usable lifespan. But since reviews focus on charge to discharge time and max capacity, but rarely analyze battery design and the long term ramifications, manufacturers aren't the only ones to blame. Please team add "At 100% charge the battery hits 4.XXv" to the script for all L-ion battery powered devices.

    • Smokeyninja
      Smokeyninja

      @HAWXLEADER No. If the peak voltage is higher then it reaches the same voltage at a lower percentage of its designated total. *Sorry, think I misread your question the first 8 times... Anyway since the chemical reaction process is highly voltage dependent, in both cases (4.25v@90% & 4.35v@70%) the voltage charge of the Li-ion cell should be roughly equal (near 4.2v), you'd get similar wear.

    • HAWXLEADER
      HAWXLEADER

      Wouldn't it be the reverse? 90 out of 4.35 will have same wear as 4.25 at 70?

    • hojnikb
      hojnikb

      @Glen McGillivray This might be the case for the current, that comes before the cell. Actual cell will always charge with constant current (if temparature permitted) and switch to constant votlage after ~80% SOC. You can't otherwise chargea lithium cell fully.

    • Glen McGillivray
      Glen McGillivray

      @hojnikb my understanding is the idea that the phone avoids having to step down voltages while charging the battery. So in the phase when it fills the battery the phone keeps itself as cool as possible while allowing maximum current to feed the batteries safely. As opposed to being fed a higher voltage and having to step it down in the phone and the phone getting hot while the batteries are fed voltage also getting hot. The goal being cooler batteries, cooler phones and better battery life. It clearly behaves differently to the QC devices I have this encountered. But that could simply be because of different charging curves between device brands

    • Smokeyninja
      Smokeyninja

      ​@Snakke Li-ions voltage induced chemical reaction, much in the same way that the degradation process isn't a linear effect, is not linear, it's parabolic (which is why a 0.05v increase causes a ~40-50% reduction in lifespan) If you really want to compare Xv @ 100% to GPUs you're best comparing them to the capacitors, which get rated X,000 hours @ XºC, like Li-ion battery degradation the problem is chemical reactions breaking down. With a capacitor every 10ºC reduction yields an approximate doubling of capacitor life. Any additives to the mixture that would prevent certain chemical reactions at higher charge would likewise inhibit those reactions at lower charge (protective effect may even compound with lower voltage to result in further longevity benefit than either individually). In the end if you have a device that you can charge to 4.2v or 4.3v, charging it to 4.2v will get you less run time per charge, but you'll get more charge/discharge cycles, and it'll degrade via chemical reactions slower (less capacity decay). Or charging it to 4.3v you can get longer run time initially, but degradation will reduce capacity relatively rapidly until no longer functional. Imo higher voltages should only be used for devices that require them

    I've been rocking one of those fone's! It's a mi 10 lite 6gb 128gb fast charger. The best thing about the fone is the charging and the OS after around 5-6 update fone. Still runs fast and not slow like most Samsung and other brand fone encounter after so many updates. Multiple drops with temper glass installed gone thru 11 temper glasses, atm with original gummy case which is provided. I highly recommend these fone just 1 time to consider make sure you check 5g antenna compatibly with your provider. 3yrs and runs good.

Seems like a big ploy for Qualcomm to catch up on chip sales after being late to the 5g game to me.
