Xiaomi has launched a Mi 30W Wireless Charger in India alongside the anticipated Mi 10 5G phone. The new wireless charger by the Chinese company offers up to 30W wireless charging, and is based on Qi standard. It also has a built-in cooling fan to reduce heat. The Mi 30W Wireless Charger competes against the OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger that Xiaomi arch-rival launched last month. Xiaomi also has the 10,000mAh Mi Wireless Power Bank as its another wireless charging accessory for the Mi 10 5G users in the country.
The Mi 30W Wireless Charger price in India is set at Rs. 2,299. However, the charger is available at a special pre-order price of Rs. 1,999. It will go on sale through the Mi.com site from May 18. The charger was initially showcased in China back in September last year.
Xiaomi is taking on OnePlus by bringing the Mi 30W Wireless Charger to India. To recall, the OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger was launched at Rs. 3,990 last month. It is, however, yet to be available for purchase in the country.
The Mi 30W Wireless Charger comes with the cooling fan that helps reduce heat while inductively charging a supported device. There is a vertical air duct design that blows the air directly to the connected phone and improves heat dissipation. The Mi 30W Wireless Charger is also based on universally-accepted Qi standard. This means that apart from the Mi 10 5G, it can charge wireless charging-supported phones from companies such as Apple and Samsung. The charger also provides up to 30W wireless charging. However, there is standard 10W wireless charging for non-Xiaomi devices.
To let users view and operate their phones while charging wirelessly, the Mi 30W Wireless Charger has an ergonomic design. This is unlike flat-bed design that is common among the wireless chargers manufactured by companies like Belkin and Samsung.
