Oppo went all out today with charging technologies as the company launched a whole lineup of Flash Charge that includes the 125W Flash Charge, 65W AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charge, 50W mini SuperVOOC Charger and 110W mini Flash Charger. This launch once again showed the supremacy of Oppo when it comes to fast charging technology for smartphones.
The 125W Flash Charge technology by Oppo can charge a 4,000mAh battery up to 41% in just 5 minutes and fully in merely 20 minutes. Now that’s crazy fast, right? This technology supports up to 20V/6.25A charging. Obviously, when a phone is being charged by such a fast charging technology, extra safety measures are required.
As we know, one downside of extremely fast charging technology is that it affects the battery health in the long run. According to Oppo, even after 800 charging cycles, the battery health of a device supporting the 125W Flash Charge will be 80%.
The phones supporting this charging technology are going to have ten additional temperature sensors to monitor the device temperature. Just like SuperVOOC 2.0, the phone supporting the 125W Flash Charge will have a dual-cell battery.
Oppo unveiled its AirVOOC technology with its Ace 2 smartphone that could charge the device wirelessly at 40W. But today, Oppo went one step ahead and launched 65W AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charge which is now the fastest Wireless Charging technology for smartphones. This charging technology can charge a 4,000mAh battery in just 30 minutes & it is also compatible with the Qi standard.
Well, a few years ago, one big complaint with Wireless Charging used to be the charing speed, but in recent years, we have seen the Wireless Charging technologies getting faster.
Oppo also unveiled two “Mini” chargers & the first one is named 50W mini SuperVOOC Charger. This is a Gallium Nitride (GaN) charger & the thickness is just 1.05cm! Moreover, the charger weighs just 60g, is 82.2mm in length and 39mm in width. The 50W mini SuperVOOC also supports popular charging protocols, for example, PD (at 27W) and PPS (50W).
Oppo says that to minimize the size of the charger, its engineering team did away with the electrolytic capacitor & added pulse charging (the first in the Industry).
Finally, Oppo unveiled the 110W mini Flash Charger which, again, is a Gallium Nitride (GaN) charger and is extremely portable. The size of the charger is similar to that of a normal 18W charger, so this will give you a very good idea of the size.
Oppo says that it has applied for over 2,800 patents for Flash Charging, which means the company will keep working on even more advanced and better Charging technologies. Oppo didn’t announce any upcoming phone coming with 125W Flash Charge or 65W AirVOOC, but we can expect a device by the end of this year.
