Hello, Mi Fans!
Although not acquainted officially in the changelog, MIUI 8 Global Developer ROM 7.5.25 introduced one more feature called “Charging Lock Screen” and with it gone are the days to keep an app specifically just to display the detailed charging info like current and temperature. With charging lock screen all the significant details are just a tap away on the lock screen. If you still haven't updated then get the links from here or fire up your updater app for OTA update.

Charging Lock Screen

While the device is locked, connect the phone to charger or USB and charging lock screen will pop up at the bottom of the display with real-time charge percentage encircled, and with a text reading in how much time the battery is expected to be fully charged. This is just the outline and hence tapping the circle will pop up various cards stacked together presenting information related to charging.

The first card displays the following information,
  • Current: Real-time current information in mA
  • Voltage: Voltage level of the battery at present
  • Temperature: Real-time battery temperature

While the second card displays,
  • Last charge: When the phone was last fully charged at
  • On battery: How much time phone was on battery since the last charge
  • Drained: Total drained battery percentage while it was on battery

The third card shows various tips related to battery charging and battery health.

Note: Currently this feature is only available in Global Beta ROM, it will be available in stable soon.

That's it for now folks! What are your thoughts on this inclusion, do you like this change or have any suggestion regarding this feature? Let us know in the comments below. As always your suggestions, feedback and questions are welcomed in the respective sections of MIUI feedback & MIUI Q&A.

Does this feature interfere with the music lock screen?

How do I turnoff this charging lockscreen?
No, you can’t.

I'm on beta ROM, but still not able to get this feature working what do I do?
