Xiaomi’s new battery tech offers 10% more capacity at the same volume

Although rapid charging technology has advanced significantly in recent years, smartphone batteries have stayed mostly constant.

Xiaomi, on the other hand, appears to have come up with a superior answer.

The business introduced its future High-Silicon Lithium battery technology in a recent Weibo post, promising higher capacity at the same volume.

Xiaomi says that their new High-Silicon battery technology has three times the silicon content on the negative electrodes of previous lithium-ion batteries, as well as a revolutionary packaging method that reduces control circuit size.

As a consequence, the organisation can cram 10% more capacity into the same volume of space. Even though they have the same capacity,

Xiaomi’s new battery pack is a little smaller than a traditional lithium-ion battery, as you can see in the attached image.

While a ten percent gain may not appear to be much, it may make a major impact.

OEMs will be able to use the extra space left by utilising a smaller battery to pack more/better hardware on their devices, or they will be able to provide a bigger capacity battery on their devices without having to make more place for the battery pack.

Xiaomi says that its new high-silicon lithium batteries may extend battery life by 100 minutes in addition to their higher capacity.

Xiaomi claims that mass production of the new batteries will begin in the second half of next year, so we won’t see them on phones for a long time.

The new batteries will most likely not be included in the Xiaomi 12 series, but we can expect to see them in the Xiaomi flagship lineup next year.
