Reducing the charging time has always been a challenge for many manufacturers. And for several years now, brands have embarked on a frantic race to offer the most powerful and efficient fast charger. In this area, Xiaomi enjoys a considerable lead over its competitors. After popularizing the 67W fast charging on the Mi 11, the Chinese manufacturer has just unveiled the Hypercharge, a 200W fast charging that can recharge a 4000 mAh battery in just 8 minutes!

For the moment, this technology has not yet been marketed, but Xiaomi intends to launch a smartphone equipped with Hypercharge very soon according to the latest rumors. For its part, Huawei only offers fast charging of 66W maximum on its latest Mate 40. The next Huawei P50 should also benefit from 66W fast charging, a technology that will allow it to reach 100% in 50 minutes. dump.

Huawei is working on 90W fast charging after 66W

However, as stated by a famous leaker on Weibo, the main Chinese social network, the Shenzhen firm is currently working on a new 90W fast charging system. With this technology, users will be able to recharge a 4000mAh battery in just 30 minutes. It is clear that this charger is establishing itself as the next step for Huawei and as the successor to 66W fast charging.

Remember, however, that the manufacturer claimed in November 2020 to have developed two fast charging systems of 120W and 200W. Of course, we are not ready to see these technologies integrated into the brand’s smartphones, Huawei preferring for the moment to be satisfied with the fast 66W charge.

It must be said that fast charges 120W and 200W have their drawbacks as Xiaomi had pointed out. Indeed, the manufacturer has recognized that the 200W Hypercharge degrades the battery in the long term. In just two years, a 4000 mAh battery loses 20% of its autonomy. Faced with the observation of its competitor, Huawei probably prefers to refine its technology to avoid this kind of problem.
