- Xiaomi has launched the Mi Car Charger Pro in India.
- You can get up to 18W fast charging with the new charger.
- The new charger is selling at a price of Rs 799.
Xiaomi has been launching a couple of accessories lately under the Mi sub-brand. Earlier this week, Xiaomi launched the Mi Wireless Power Bank in India 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 new charger is available on Mi.com for purchase at a price of Rs 799.
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 at Rs 2,499 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, with prices starting at Rs 699. Xiaomi also launched its Mi Electric ToothBrush T300 last month under its crowdfunding programme.
The Mi sub-brand is also expected to launch a couple of premium smartphones in the Indian market this year. The Mi 10 is expected to make it to the Indian market this year as Xiaomi's flagship offering in the country to challenge the upcoming OnePlus 8 series. The Redmi K30 Pro is also expected to make it to the Indian shores as the more affordable flagship from the company.
