Battery & Charger
Out of the box, the Pocophone F1 is equipped with a 4,000mAh battery. To be honest, I didn’t expect it to be this high capacity. For its price, I’d be happy with whatever capacity it has – but Xiaomi didn’t cheap out on this. The 4,000mAh battery is one of the main feature highlight of the Pocophone F1 – because gaming drains a lot of juice.
In our PCMark Work 2.0 battery life test, the Pocophone F1 can last for 13 hours and 52 minutes – that really impressive. Even better than the Galaxy Note9 that has a 4,000mAh battery with a Super AMOLED screen and scaled down to 1080p resolution.
Gaming is a different story – about 30 minutes of PUBG Mobile drained around 12% of battery. Not too bad.
The charger itself is white in color – and so is the USB-C cable. Inspecting the charger itself, it has the Xiaomi logo with a Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 logo as well. Yes – the Pocophone F1 supports QC 3.0. This charge can output 9V 2A and also 12V at 1.5A.
Albeit with a 4,000mAh battery, at 18W of power, the Pocophone F1 can charge to 50% at just 32 minutes, and then reaching 75% battery at 54 minutes. To reach 100% battery, it takes 108 minutes. Remember – you have a 4,000mAh battery here, so having 50% charge can last you a long time.
We also tested with a 5V 2A charger, and yes, obviously it’s a lot slower.
