- Xiaomi has launched the Mi Car Charger Pro.
- You can get up to 18W fast charging with the new charger.
Xiaomi has been launching a couple of accessories lately under the Mi sub-brand. Earlier this week, Xiaomi launched the Mi Wireless Power Bank for devices that support wireless charging and now, it has launched a car charger. Xiaomi already sells a car charger but the new one is called the Mi Car Charger Pro and if you must have guessed it already, the charger supports up to 18W fast charging for supported devices.
The major highlight of the Mi Car Charger Pro is that it can support up to 18W fast wired charging. The charger comes with two USB-A ports and one of these can deliver 18W fast charging at a time to a smartphone that supports 18W fast charging. Do note that the charger can only deliver 18W fast charging at a time. If both the ports are being used together, the charger will distribute the power evenly to both the phone and fast charging may not be available in that situation.
Similar to the previous Mi Car Charger, the Pro model boasts of a premium metallic build. In order to help the user locate the charger in the car at night, there’s a white LED ring on the charger that keeps glowing as soon as power is available to the port. Xiaomi has also included protection for short circuit and overcharging as well as overheating. The charger comes in only a single colour and there are no other variants.
Xiaomi is reinforcing its accessories lineup recently under the Mi and Redmi sub-brands. Prior to this, Xiaomi launched the Mi Wireless Power Bank that offers 18W fast wired charging as well as 10W fast wireless charging to supported devices. Redmi also stepped into the accessories segment with the Redmi 1000mAh and 20000mAh power bank a few weeks ago. Xiaomi also launched its Mi Electric ToothBrush T300 last month under its crowdfunding programme.
