On September 15, Xiaomi will hold a presentation in the global market, in which it will introduce the Xiaomi 11T and Xiaomi 11T Pro smartphones. It is already known that the older model will support 120W fast charging. Every time we hear such numbers, users have questions about the safety of fast charging.

Is it safe?
So far, the manufacturer has not said how long HyperCharge technology will take to fully charge the Xiaomi 11T Pro. The flagship Mi 11, which has a 55W charging power, charges the battery in 45 minutes, while last year’s Mi 10 Ultra, which also received a 120W charge, but only in China, takes just 23 minutes to fully restore power.
Daniel Desjarlet, head of international communications and global spokesperson for Xiaomi, assures that charging is safe for the battery. First of all, due to the fact that the battery consists of two parts.
«It’s like having two different gas inlets in your car and two separate tanks. Now, instead of filling one side at a certain slow rate, you can fill two at the same time.»
You can also count on battery longevity. In general, the same as smartphones with conventional charging.
«That’s something we’ve really thoroughly tested. Typically, at the battery level we tested it with, after 800 charge cycles, you’ll still have 80 percent of usable capacity. That 20 percent might sound like, ‘Wow, I’m losing 20 percent» but that’s pretty standard across almost all charging technologies. 800 cycles for most people is about two years. So that’s pretty solid.»
By comparison, Apple says its lithium-ion battery will retain «up to 80 percent of its original capacity at 500 full charge cycles.» But he does not even support such a fast charge.
Desjarlais claims that the testing was extremely thorough and conducted with third parties using 34 different battery protection features. «We wanted to make sure we followed all the rules, but also that it was incredibly safe for everyone.»
