Xiaomi's new 100W charging tech will fully charge your phone in just 17 minutes

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro supports 40W SuperCharge. The Oppo Find X is compatible with 50W SuperVOOC. And soon, certain Xiaomi smartphones will support an incredible 100W fast charging technology.
Set to be announced tomorrow in China, the new charging tech will be marketed as “Super Charge Turbo” and will subsequently become the world’s fastest flash charging technology. Specific details are yet to be announced, but Xiaomi’s co-founder and President Lin Bin has shared a video of its new technology in action.
As shown in the 40-second clip, the new technology can charge a 4000mAh smartphone battery from 0% to 50% in as little as 7 minutes. Then, leaving the phone on charge for an extra 10 minutes will bring the charge up to 100%, meaning owners could fully charge their devices in just 17 minutes.
To further demonstrate the capabilities of Super Charge Turbo, Xiaomi directly compared it to Oppo’s 50W SuperVOOC in the short video. The latter was charging a smaller 3700mAh battery but was only capable of producing a 65% charge in the 17 minutes it took Xiaomi to fully charge a 4000mAh cell.
When we’ll see Xiaomi’s new Super Charge Turbo tech inside its smartphones remains a bit of a mystery, but further details will probably be announced tomorrow. A potential candidate for support could be the Mi Mix 4 when it launches later this year. Alternatively, the company could wait for the Xiaomi Mi 10 next year before releasing the tech publicly.

I doubt a lithium battery survives 3 months this way

wrong, given the controller inside modern smartphones analysing battery load, temp, current etc, most modern batteries can be perfectly charged at speed and it will NOT damage the battery beyond its normal wear and tear, which is usually between 18 months to 3 years, naturally during that time there will be degredation of the battery, which is usually around the 500 cycle mark for many batteries when the battery starts to lose its ability to hold charge, usually 10% degredation per x amount of cycles after 500

I see no problem with that, as long as Voltage is kept to the minimum (5-10V). Oppo's 50W charging technology (5V, 10A) keeps battery's temperature nice, cool and stable and that's all that matters. Anyhow, I'm expecting to see either 5V, 20A or 10V, 10A with this new charging technology but only time will tell.

4000 mAh is a 2 day regular usage battery in Xiaomi phones (in Apple even 3000 mAh is a 2 day usage); charging the phone in 15 minutes - the time it takes you to take a shower /eat a soup /recharge the car battery - is a great feature to have when you are outside a lot.

They should really take their time to thoroughly test the safety of this new tech. I doubt many people need to charge their phone this fast, maybe unless Xiaomi starts producing phones with batteries of over 10000 mAh.
