In recent years Xiaomi has chosen to incorporate fast charging to practically all of its smartphones. The Xiaomi 12T Pro, for example, has a 120W fast charge that allows it to charge its 5,000mAh battery to 100% in just 19 minutes.
In order to take advantage of the fast charging of our Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO, we must have a compatible charger. This, at least, should have an output power equal to the maximum allowed by the device to be charged, in order to take full advantage of it.
Knowing if our mobile phone is taking advantage of all its fast charging is extremely simple. MIUI shows us several indications of this, differentiating when it is charging in a traditional way and when we are doing it through fast charging.
How to know if your Xiaomi is taking advantage of its fast-charging
When we connect our Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO to its charger and it to the electrical outlet, MIUI tells us that charging has started. To do this, it uses two types of icons in the top status bar:
- Simple lightning bolt icon: Indicates that the battery is charging slowly or below the maximum allowed. This usually happens if the charger or cable does not support fast charging.
- Double lightning bolt icon: Indicates that the battery is charging via fast charging. Both the smartphone, the charger, and the cable are compatible with fast charging.
In addition to this indicator, on the lock screen, right at the bottom, a charging-type message will appear: ” charging ” or ” fast charging “. This way we can know if our Xiaomi is charging, taking advantage of all its fast charging.
