What are the Best Types of Chargers and Fast Charging Tech to use for Xiaomi Phones
For a few years now, many phones have been fast charging compatible. This means that they can charge faster using a specific charging technology. Many Android phones on the market are compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge, and for good reasons, as Qualcomm is responsible for creating the Snapdragon Processor that goes into nearly all Android phones. Another very popular fast charging technology that is not just limited to phones is known as Power Delivery.
You’ve also phones like OnePlus that have their very own proprietary fast charging that is known as Dash Charge, which is super fast but is only used by the OnePlus lineup.
Xiaomi Has has the Best of Both Worlds
So let’s go back to Power Delivery, and Quick Charge, both of these fast charging technologies are used quite a lot, and one of the best smartphones on the market that makes use of them are Xiaomi phones. At least, newer Xiaomi phones are making use of PD and Quick Charge, so if you’re using either a Qualcomm Quick Charge charger or a Power Delivery charger, you’re able to fast charge your Xiaomi phone. The more recent Samsung Galaxy phones are able to do the same, too.
Even the Pocophone F1, a budget phone that was still checking all the boxes for its specifications still managed to fit in fast charging. Then there are higher tier phones like the Mi 9T Pro that can charge faster at 27W with a Power Delivery charger, or you can opt to use a Quick Charge charger to fast charge it. Since you have the option to fast charge from two useful technologies, we’re going to go over a few chargers that can be used to fast charge your Xiaomi phone with either Power Delivery or Quick Charge.
We’re going to mostly be steering towards Power Delivery chargers in this case, because most phones can fast charge using PD because of it following the USB-C standard.

A desktop charging station can also prove to be a useful charging electronic.
