Keep in mind that this is all theoretical at the moment because no smartphone has been built yet with support for HyperCharge. To show what this might look like though, Xiaomi created a custom built Mi 11 with a 4000mAh battery that was recorded charging on a wired basis for all of eight minutes. Take a look at the future of battery charging by tapping the play button on the video above.
HyperCharge does have some caveats; at 200W it is prone to overheating. Still, being able to fully charge your phone in only eight minutes could be worth it the extra heat. Another thing to consider is battery degradation.
HyperCharge supposedly drops the battery to 80% capacity after 800 charges which is better than the typical battery’s drop to 80% capacity after 500 cycles. Nonetheless, to get the most out of your handset, when or if HyperCharge becomes a real feature, you might want to use it sparingly instead of using it every time you charge.
