Daniel Desjarlais, head of communications at Xiaomi, told edge After charging 800 times at this speed (equivalent to about two years), you can expect 80% of the battery capacity.
Now, this 20% may sound like “Oh, wow, I lost 20%”, but this is basically the standard for all charging technologies. 800 cycles, for most people, it is about two years. So this is very solid.
Desjarlais also told the media that there is a “relatively small difference” in battery degradation when using slower chargers and 120W adapters. But he pointed out that the ideal situation is for consumers to use slower chargers overnight.
But how does this compare?
This is not the first time we have seen Xiaomi promote these data, because it revealed 200W wired charging earlier this year and promised to retain 80% of the capacity after 800 charging cycles. Nevertheless, the 20% battery degradation seems to be equivalent to the speed of 100W+, as Oppo said before, its 125W solution will also cause the same drop after 800 cycles.
