Xiaomi jumped on the gallium nitride (GaN) bandwagon with its Mi 65W Fast Charger in late 2020. This new super-fast power brick is pitched at users with fast-charging phones - or even some laptops: for example, the first-gen ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 would be capable of using this brick with nothing more than a type C to C cable. Now, it seems this product has a refreshed version that should do more or less the same, just with a little bit more of a boost.
According to a new TUV certification spotted and posted by Mukul Sharma (on that leaker's @stufflistings Twitter channel), it differs from the Mi 65W in terms of model number (MDY-12-EU or MDY-12-ET) and charging profile. Its highest rate is 11V/6.1A, or 67.1W in total, a non-standard rate that might be either intended for inclusion in an upcoming Xiaomi premium phone, or simply to differentiate from the first Mi Fast Charger.
Then again, both accessories are also capable of the same 20V/3.25A rate. This has led to speculation that it might come in the box with the imminent global SKUs of the new Xiaomi Mi 11. Then again, this phone has a top rate of 55W in the Chinese market, something that caused the OEM to offer the appropriate power brick as a free optional add-on with early orders of this phone.
In any case, this new "Mi 67W Fast Charger" is now a TUV-confirmed IP20 device with the Class II degree of protection. Given its probable predecessor's reasonable €30 (~US$36) price, it might indeed be a decent option to consider when buying a powerful new wall adapter that saves on time when connected to an increasing number of newer personal electronics.
