Today Xiaomi announced the new Mi Charge Turbo, a wireless fast charger which promises up to 30W of fast charging. Calling this as part of the 5G era, Xiaomi claims that users can wirelessly charge a 4,000mAh battery phone from 0% to 50% in 25 minutes, and up to 100% in 70 minutes, which Xiaomi suggests is even higher than some of the wired charging solutions.

Wired versus wireless charging can sometimes be confusing and that's no thanks to companies and their marketing departments who happen to name all of this tech.

The company has also introduced Xiaomi Mi 30W wireless charging stand. Another thing that Xiaomi announced was that the company is now working on 40 W wireless charging tech too. This is 30W wireless fast charging, and the company's announcement comes from China.

The new fast charging technology uses an efficient 4:1 direct charging architecture to provide up to 30W wireless charging. This will enable you to charge your accessories, like AirPods or fitness band, using the smartphone itself.

It is estimated that there will be 1 billion wireless charging receivers and 400 million transmitters by 2020, and the numbers might nearly double in 2025, the WPC estimated. The high power reverse charging, on the other hand, could charge 20% of an iPhone XS in just 30 minutes. So, in terms of the charging speed, the Xiaomi 9 Pro 5G is going to be an incredible device. The Mi 9 got 20W. There however was no mention of the phone coming with the charger or a separate purchase will be required.

Moreover, it will feature 40W Fast Wired Charging as well. It includes reverse-charging and is actually the highest so far. This should also help to keep the temperature under control. This one reduces heat and improves efficiency during the process.
