Xiaomi will slow down the charging of smartphones – there is a good reason for this
The Chinese manufacturer plans to slow down the charging of some devices if the software detects non-original batteries in them. This information was found in the code of the Mi Security application. In the recently introduced Mi Security application, an entry was found that clearly informs that some devices of the Chinese manufacturer will display a special warning for users who have installed an unoriginal battery in them.
The displayed message is intended to convince the owner to replace the battery only in an authorized store. Using a replacement will lead to the possibility of damage to the equipment, as well as to the loss of any warranty services. Moreover, the detection of an unauthorized battery can also intentionally reduce its charging speed. The argument here is the fear of its overheating and possible explosion. According to Western websites, this warning applies only to devices available in China. Among them were, among others, smartphones in the Mi 9, Mi 10 or Mi 10 Pro. At the moment, it is unknown whether the solution will be implemented in other regions of the world.
