Xiaomi is the first OEM to offer 200 W fast charging for a smartphone

Jun 8, 2021

With industry-leading fast charging technology, you can charge a 4000mAh battery to 100% in just 8 minutes with our very first 200W wired charging! And it only takes 15 minutes using 120W wireless charging!

I don’t understand this obsession with fast charging. I understand that the requirements from the batteries will be higher and higher but I do not understand why they want to charge in a few seconds. It reminds me of the obsession with starting cars on the spot. It is desired that the car reach 100 km per hour in a few seconds. We leave the place quickly and then brake because we have a speed over the legal limit in that area.

Why are we in a hurry? Why do we want things to happen so fast? We recognize that the world is very alert but we continue to feed our desires for the actions around us to occur as soon as possible. In the end we say that technology is to blame for our fast pace of life.
