Xiaomi is a leading smartphone brand with the largest consumer base in Asian countries.
The company is known for providing impressive hardware specifications at an affordable price.
The craze for fast charging has been on the rise in recent years. People are always looking for ways to charge their devices faster.
Many Android smartphone manufacturers, like Xiaomi, Realme, Samsung, Vivo, etc., provide super fast-charging technology to their devices.
Xiaomi has shocked the Android community by announcing massive 120W fast charging support in Xiaomi 11i and 11T Pro.
Xiaomi named it HyperCharge.
The massive 120W power adapter changes a 5000mAh smartphone battery in just 17 minutes.
Xiaomi 11T Pro and 11i models support the 120W HyperCharge feature. But other Xiaomi phones also support up to 45W to 60W fast charging.
However, there have been some reports of Xiaomi’s fast charging not working properly.
If you recently bought a Xiaomi Android phone that takes too long to charge, you probably haven’t enabled the fast charging option from power settings.
I also faced a slow charging problem with my Xiaomi 11i. When I contacted Xiaomi customer service, they provided some easy solutions over the phone call, and my issue was resolved.
In this guide, I will share those solutions with you so that you can also fix the problem and charge your phone faster.
Why Was My Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge Not Working?
I’ll first share why my Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge was not working. After that, I’ll share the solutions that Xiaomi’s customer care executive provided me.
I didn’t know that the Xiaomi Boost Charge feature was disabled. When I plugged in the charger, it took me over 1 hour, while Xiaomi claims that HyperCharge takes only 17 minutes from 0 to 100%.
It was a panic moment for me. I contacted the Xiaomi customer care executive, who told me to enable Boost Charge from the Battery settings.
I followed the steps, and the slow charging issue was fixed. Here is how to enable HyperCharge, aka Boost Charge function, on Xiaomi smartphones.
How To Enabled Boost Charging in MIUI 13?

How To Fix Slow Charging On Other Xiaomi Smartphones?
Only Xiaomi 11T Pro Hyperphone and 11i Hypercharge support 120W fast charging. But other smartphones like Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G support 67W fast charging.
If fast charging is not working in any of your Xiaomi smartphones, then the Xiaomi customer care executive suggested the following solutions-
1- Check your Adapter
Although it’s very basic, we often forget to charge our smartphones with the correct adapter. It’s because many adapters are plugged into various wall outlets at home.
So, if you’re facing a slow charging problem on your smartphone, ensure that you use the correct power adapter and cable to charge it.
A 25W adapter can not deliver power out of 67W. So, if you’re using a lower-wattage adapter to charge a 5000mAh battery, it will take more time.

2- Use the Original Cable
We all have multiple USB cables at home or office. So, we often use any cable available to charge our smartphones.
But you should know that not all USB cables support fast charging. So, if you’re using a third-party USB cable, it will charge your phone slowly.
Ensure you use the original USB cable in the box to charge your Xiaomi smartphone.
3- Restart your phone
MIUI is known for being a power hub of bugs and glitches. Although Xiaomi has improved significantly in the software segment, but it is still not bug-free.
If you’re using the original power adapter and cable to charge your phone, but it’s not charging faster, restart it once.
In most cases, minor bugs are often resolved by restarting the phone.
4- Check for System Updates
As I mentioned earlier, Xiaomi’s MIUI often gets buggy with time. So, it is essential to keep your smartphone up-to-date to avoid such bugs and software glitches.
Xiaomi developers collect user data and frequently release OTA updates to fix reported bugs. So, make sure you’ve installed the latest system update on your phone.
To check for updates, go to Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates. If an update is available, install it and restart your phone.
5- Try a different charger
Almost all power adapter comes with voltage surge protection, but sometimes, our adapter gets defective, and we keep fixing the phone.
If you’ve another smartphone adapter that supports fast charging, use it to charge your Xiaomi phone. If the issue persists, then there is a problem with your phone.

7- Factory Reset your phone
