As exciting as the latest innovations in smartphone design over the past several months have been, many of the key technologies that power those phones aren't advancing at quite the same speed. For example, it still takes more than two hours to fully charge the iPhone XS from 0% to 100% with the charger that comes in the package. Even modern "fast charging" technology, while useful, isn't likely to blow anyone away.
But the dream of fully charging your phone in minutes might not be as distant as it seems. On Tuesday, XDA shared a video originally posted on Weibo by Lu Weibing, head of Xiaomi's Redmi brand, showing the company's 100W Super Charge Turbo, which is seemingly capable of fully charging a 4,000 mAh battery in 17 minutes.
