In a post on Weibo, Xiaomi revealed a new battery technology that it is working on. The technology is expected to be available next year and the first mass production of the battery will start in the second half of 2022.
Based on the translation of the information in Chinese, GSM ARENA wrote that Xiaomi was able to increase the silicon content in a battery by about three times. The end is the storage capacity that becomes more efficient.
In the same measure, Xiaomi’s new battery can load capacity in milliampere hours which is 10 percent larger. That correlates with an additional 100 minutes of usage time after a single charge.
The packaging technology has also been made more efficient. The circuit guard module is made perpendicular, no longer flat, which makes it more space efficient.
In addition, Xiaomi has equipped the new battery with a fuel gauge chip. Working on a more advanced algorithm, the chip is able to improve the level of safety and lifespan of its cells as it monitors the charging process that goes on throughout the night. This mitigates overcharge situations when the device is plugged into the mains for too long.
A number of temperature control functions using sensors were also added. Although it is not known how exactly Xiaomi is able to control the temperature of its cell phone battery.
