FYI: a comprehensive list of all ROMs available for MM2 (AOSP, MIUI based)

Remember to backup all partitions & QCN before flashing

Best SOT battery ROM is lineageOS 14.1 build 1005 oxygen by xuefer, google for links

Xiaomi Mi Store Suntec recently started selling, but note, is sold as export item, cos is 2-pin china plug, so you need to use an adaptor to use locally

Xiaomi 45W USB-C Wall charger (PD2.0 & QC3)
USB Power Delivery v2.0 standard: 5V (3A), 9V (3A), 12V (3A), 15V (3A), 20V (2.25A)

Can this wall charger be used with MM2? Review here

Yes can. I'm tried using a similar one(45W Mi notebook Air charger) and it has QC.

grade 1 A-C

Notes:
MM2 is USB 2.0 only, type C
some grade 1 or 2 cables are almost as expensive as grade 3 (best)
No need to get 5A rated cables, as QC3 peak current is only 2A. So, get cables rated 3A is good enough for MM2.

Personally, I found out via testing of my A-C cables, the shortest cable will give the best charging times, but phone battery is slightly hotter. Also, putting 1 or 2 ferrite chokes at one/both ends of cable stabilizes the charging current (less fluctuations across different battery percentages). I use AccuBattery app to test. This app also reminds users using the phone alarm, once charging reaches 80%. That is the threshold to preserve battery longevity 2x, as opposed to charging to 100%.

No matter which cable is in use, charging current will always taper off once charging is 90%-100%.

How high is the amperage of quick charging 3.0? (from Quora)
Dave Haynie, Electrical engineer and part-time mad scientist
The peak current on Quick Charge 3.0 is the same as for Quick Charge 2.0 and most USB Battery Charging adapters: 2.0A. That's because it's designed to work over existing USB 2.0 connectors and cables, which are rated no higher… in fact, most USB jacks are rated at 1.8A.


clip-on ferrite chokes, measured using inner diameter
