Xiaomi 200W HyperCharge Review: Is It The Best Portable Charger?

Quick charging is becoming more and more popular. We love faster charging! takes a look at a portable charger that is capable of quick charging and has an output of 200 watts. 

Xiaomi is a company that produces a wide range of products. The company is most famous for its cell phones, fitness trackers, and laptops. Recently, the company has ventured outside the box with a portable charger called the Xiaomi 200W HyperCharge. 

This is a large, 200W charger that is capable of charging any electronic device in a reasonable amount of time. But if it’s so great, why isn’t everyone buying it? That’s nearly three times as powerful as the average portable charger! Is it worth the price? Let’s find out in this Xiaomi 200W HyperCharge Review.

Introducing the Mi 200W HyperCharge

Ever since Xiaomi launched the Mi Wireless Charger Duo in India last year, we've been waiting for the company to launch a reliable and powerful charger for its devices that is smaller than a hair brush and could be an alternative to the charging puck. 

The company launched the Mi Wireless Charger 2S with an AMOLED display and a full charge of the 3000mAh battery of a Samsung Galaxy S9+ in 1 hour 49 minutes. 

In October, the company launched the Mi Wireless Charger Nano with an AMOLED display and a full charge of a 3000mAh battery in 1 hour 46 minutes.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro that is scheduled to go on sale next week on November 11 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with up to 10GB RAM and 512GB storage space. 

It is also touted to have a whopping 95 percent screen to body ratio and comes with a 12.2MP AI camera with a Sony IMX586 sensor with up to 4 times higher image processing compared to the previous generation model. 

The camera will have support for 960fps slow motion and it will offer a new depth-of-field effect (bokeh). Other key features of the phone include in-display fingerprint scanner and 18W wired fast charging. 

Now, this was just the rumour-mill talking and not the official word from Xiaomi itself that the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is just a hoax.

The Mi 200W HyperCharge Compared to The Competition

The single USB type C port (2A fast charge compatible) can fully charge the Mi 11 Pro battery from 0 to 100% in 200 hours. This is roughly 3.4 times faster than regular Quick Charge 5.0+. This charging speed is a bit fast for USB Type C users and is actually faster than most smartphones, but is a bit slower than the Huawei P20 Pro. 

The other alternative to the Mi 200W charger that is more popularly known as the 'Asus ROG Legend 4G' is the WSJK Mobile Charger that has also fast-charging capabilities, but only at a 5V/2A speed. This charging speed is still higher than the Xiaomi HyperCharge.

➤ Design

The Mi 11 Pro can be kept on charging for up to 3 hours under normal conditions and 2 hours under 80% We put it to the test under normal conditions, and we found the Mi 11 Pro to be able to stay on for upto 2 hours while charging. 

The smartphone will be on the dock for upto 2 hours on charge, and once that is done, it will go off on its own. You can safely place the phone on the charger and leave it. 

Another thing that impressed us was that the Mi 11 Pro never heated up to high temperatures while charging the 4000mAh battery. The Mi 11 Pro comes with an outer shell made of stainless steel and there is also a front lip to protect the display.

➤ Durability

Power consumption The steel body design of the device makes it suitable to use for long hours. The main components like the CPU and the charger are not connected to each other. So, we can safely say that the whole mechanism is safe and durable. 

Xiaomi's 200W HyperCharge wireless charger is certainly the best wireless charger of the moment. It is currently available on Mi.com and Amazon for Rs. 6,900. The price of the device can be a little expensive if compared with the competition. 

However, the company offers a cashback of Rs. 1500 from the Xiaomi Store to all the buyers. Besides, there are also discounts with respect to buying the device on the two main platforms. Thus, the net price of the device will not be more than Rs. 6,900.

➤ Performance

The power supply unit has a type-C USB connector and an LED indicator on the back side. It supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 4+ and 5V/3A. The unit has two outlets which support the QuickCharge 3.0 standard. It charges up to 6-8 times faster with a normal QC 3.0 adapter. 

The front of the USB PD charger supports only a standard USB port and a button which toggles the QC/QC 3.0 and 5V/2A power. Xiaomi 200W HyperCharge Power Bank has a ring LED which glows when the battery charge is low. 

➤ Specifications: 

The Xiaomi 200W HyperCharge Power Bank has a capacity of 4000mAh and can charge the smartphone to 100% from 0% in just 1.5 hours. It has a a polymer outer which protects the device from getting dented easily. The body has a metal frame and the back is metallic in nature.

➤ Pros and Cons

➤ Pros 

High-end proprietary technology Continuously outputs enough power for full charge with even the longest of cords Multiple power output and fast charging options 

➤ Cons 

Low-end paper grade batteries are used to power the battery. There is no wireless charging support Unusual charging format Overall Verdict If you are looking for a high-end battery pack with more advanced and innovative charging technology. 

Then you will be happy to hear that the Xiaomi 200W HyperCharge Qi wireless power bank is available on pre-order on the Xiaomi website in China and if you are an avid user of mobile devices then the Mi 11 Pro will be a perfect fit for your travel bag. 

The Mi Wireless charging Mi Power Bank has been launched at a price tag of 1399 Yuan (around $204/Rs 13,800).

Conclusion

I have used the Xiaomi 200W HyperCharge capable portable charger with Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro smartphone for quite a few days and I am getting a quite good battery backup. When the battery of my Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro dies after around 5 to 6 hours of use, the 5V,4A (max) charging speed takes only a few hours to get the battery topped up to full charge. 

The 150W power brick (which has the identical connectors) supports only 5V,2A charging for 10W wired charging speed and only 20W Qi charging speed. Since 5V,2A can charge the Mi 11 Pro battery from 0% to full battery in less than 4.5 hours, the 5V,4A with 200W for wired charging will get the battery fully charged in only one hour.
