    Xiaomi has launched the 11T Pro with fast charging speeds that fill the battery in 17 minutes

    Not saying it's the best idea from a battery longevity point of view to charge at that rate, but they have 2 cells, so effectively, its charging two batteries at half the rate each

    HIV is making coronavirus variants more likely in South Africa

    Fight brewing over vaccine passports in South Africa
