Oppo has been pushing the envelope in terms of fast-charging lately, and today the company has unveiled an insanely powerful 125W charger for smartphones. The event, held in China, also saw Oppo launching three new ultra-fast charging products — the 65W AirVOOC wireless charger, 50W mini SuperVOOC charger, and 110W mini flash charger.
The 125W flash charge technology, as said, will charge 41% of 4,000mAh battery in just five minutes, while it will fully charge the battery in about 20 minutes. The superior charging speed has its own drawbacks — hampering the life of the battery and smartphones. For this, Oppo has come up with three parallel charge pumps that divide the power, plus it has also added 10 temperature sensors for extra protection of the battery.
The AirVOOC wireless flash charge, on the other hand, brings a circular design and a glass panel to dissipate the heat. Also, it has a “self-developed isolated charge pump technology” with parallel dual-coil design to increase the efficiency of wireless charging. It’s pretty much similar to the wired 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 — two coils are charged at the same time and it should take around 30 minutes to fully charge a 4,000mAh battery.
For now, the charger is in its early stage as there is no Oppo smartphone that supports this level of charging. Regardless, the charger has a cooling fan to decrease the temperature by two degrees-celsius, and a design that is said to be made in such a way that it provides a flow of fresh air.
The 50W mini SuperVOOC is as big as a portable 4G modem which makes it easy to put inside a pocket or a purse and perform your daily task, which is quite handy in comparison to a standard heavy charging brick. It supports VOOC standards (up to 4.0 at 30W) and works with 27W and 50W PPS.
The mini charger has so-called “pulse charging” to provide a proper current — this is all thanks to the removal of electrolytic capacitor which allows the charger to pump a huge amount of power at the same time slots of 40 ms instead of a traditional increase of power.
About the 110W mini flash charger, it’s pretty much similar to 50W charger barring the capacity, but it works in the same way. The charger is compatible with Oppo’s all charging standards — SuperVOOC up to 65W, VOOC up to 40W, and continuos out of PD at 65W and Quick Charge at 36W.
Oppo says that the charger could charge other devices as well, though at certain power levels — the Huawei P40 Pro at 18W, as opposed to 40W, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro at 30W, instead of 65W, and even a MacBook Pro at 65W.
Oppo’s VOOC technologies have a user base of over 157 million people all over the world, and the company is assuring to keep evolving the fast-charging solutions with more than 2,800 global patents on flash charging.
