Fast charging on the Redmi just got even better. As previously reported by Android Authority, the phone manufacturer, Xiaomi, showcases its new 300-watt fast-charging technology in this post on Weibo. This technology can fully charge a phone in just five minutes.
A heavily modified Redmi Note 12 Pro was not used for this demonstration. Although Xiaomi appears to have replaced the phone’s standard 5,000 mAh battery with a smaller 4,100 mAh option, the faster charging speed is undoubtedly due to the same hardware that is currently shipping.
Nevertheless, 4,100 mAh is still a very usable capacity for a smartphone and is only marginally smaller than the 4,323 mAh battery Apple includes with the iPhone 14 Pro Max and significantly larger than the 3,200 mAh battery in the iPhone 14 Pro.

Despite the fact that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Android smartphone is aimed at international markets and made its official debut in November, Xiaomi is using the Mobile World Congress trade show, which is currently taking place in Barcelona, Spain, to highlight the capabilities of the firm’s fast-charging technology.
In a previous demonstration, Redmi claimed that its charger could deliver up to 300W of power, but it actually only reached 290W when charging a device. In any case, that surpasses the business’s prior record of nine minutes at 240W for charging the Note 12 Discovery Edition.
The primary concern with these ultra-fast charging phones is the impact on battery cycle life. The number of times the phone can be fully recharged has previously been restricted by fast charging’s increased heat, which in turn reduces the phone’s lifespan. Manufacturers will succeed if they can combine durability and quick charging.
Meanwhile, when 300-watt charging will be available from Xiaomi is still unknown.
