Xiaomi launches a gadget that Apple canceled


Xiaomi has just released three new phones that are still in the Mi 11 series, in an event broadcast on Xiaomi's YouTube channel.


Along with the launch of the Mi 11 series, Xiaomi also launched a wireless charging pad accessory. Devices such as cell phones only need to be placed on a pad to charge the battery.


This accessory is similar to the wireless charger launched by Apple in 2017, called AirPower. Unfortunately, the AirPower project was discontinued by Apple and never released.


One of the reasons is that AirPower is reportedly unable to meet the high standards set by Apple.


Unlike the fate of Apple's AirPower, the charging pad made by Xiaomi has actually become a product and released, even though it is only limited to the Chinese region.


Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun explained that his company started working on a wireless charging pad just as Apple officially gave up developing AirPower in 2019.


Lei Jun revealed that one of the most difficult problems encountered when developing this wireless charger pad was overheating.


Xiaomi revealed that the company's wireless charging pad can be used to charge up to 60 watts of three devices simultaneously. In other words, each device can charge up to 20 watts.


This Xiaomi wireless charging pad allows users to place their devices anywhere when they want to charge, as long as they are still in the charging area. This is possible because of the 19 wireless charging coils on the base.


For the record, this wireless charging pad can only be used by devices that have Qi wireless charging standard.


Apart from being used to charge Xiaomi-made devices, this charging mat is also said to be used to charge the new iPhones and AirPods, but not the Apple Watch, as compiled from MacRumors.


In China, Xiaomi's wireless charging pad is priced at 599 Yuan or around Rp. 1.3 million.


There is no further information whether this wireless charging pad will also be available for the global market, including Indonesia, or not, as compiled by KompasTekno from TechSpot, Tuesday (30/3/2021).
