OPPO has announced the release of its latest phone charging technology that includes the 125W flash charge, the 65W AirVOOC wireless flash charge, the ultra-small portable 50W mini SuperVOOC charger as well as the 110W mini flash charger.
Commenting on the latest innovation, Muthoni Wachira, OPPO Kenya’s PR and Communications Manager, said: “The accelerated 5G rollout worldwide as well as the increasing diversification of high-power-consumption applications including gaming and video viewing represent new challenges for the battery life of mobile phones and user charging experience. OPPO has been leading the development of fast charging ever since VOOC flash charge was launched in 2014. Now, we are committed to continuing to build on our expertise and advantages in the field of high power, wireless and ultra-small charging technologies in order to provide users with a safe, efficient and convenient ultra-fast charging experience.”
OPPO’s 125W flash charge technology marks the latest flash charge technological breakthrough for the mobile phone industry. With an advanced encryption algorithm and strict temperature control regulators, it enables the safe and efficient use of the flash charging device. The 125W flash charge technology uses direct charging technology which is able to charge a 4000mAh battery up to 41% in 5 minutes and fully charge it in 20 minutes at the fastest rate. Simultaneously, it is compatible with previous SuperVOOC and VOOC flash charge protocols and it also supports mainstream protocols including 65W PD and 125W PPS. Currently, it is the most advanced flash charging technology in the industry.
The 65W AirVOOC wireless flash charge allows users to charge faster compared to wired charging. It has adopted self-developed isolated charge pump technology and parallel dual-coil design to further increase wireless charging efficiency. With this, the 65W AirVOOC wireless flash charge can fully charge a 4000mAh battery in 30 minutes at the fastest rate.
In addition, OPPO has showcased a conceptual wireless charger for the 65W AirVOOC wireless flash charge. The charger features a beautifully sculpted glass which is made of moldless rapid prototyping technology and is the first application of this type of technology in the consumer electronics market.
The bottom of the charger is equipped with a semiconductor cooler in order to adjust the heat entering and exiting thereby ensuring that the handset is not hot after the appliance has been charged. In this case, the temperature of the back of the phone is kept over 2℃ lower than that of only using the fan to dissipate heat. The unique design makes mobile phone charging more convenient and has the capacity for high-power charging.
These unique features mean that the 65W AirVOOC wireless flash charge provides a unique and unprecedented charging experience and may likely become users’ first charger choice in the 5G era.
In addition, the smartphone firm has also introduced the world’s smallest and thinnest 50W mini SuperVOOC charger, and the 110W mini flash charger that features a unique dual-level architecture. OPPO’s 50W mini SuperVOOC charger was developed through multi-radian curve processing to a size similar to a business card holder; its wall has a thickness of only 1.05cm. As a result of its design, users can easily place it in their shirt pockets and coat pockets, which makes it extremely convenient for commuting and traveling. The 50W mini SuperVOOC charger is compatible with VOOC protocols, supports mainstream protocols like 27W PD and 50W PPS, and can charge a variety of devices including mobile phones and laptops.
Building upon the 50W mini SuperVOOC charger, OPPO’s 110W mini flash charger has defied the limits of size and efficiency for high-power adapters. Besides using the innovative dual-level architecture to achieve high-efficiency power conversion and temperature rise control, the 110W mini flash charger is built upon the combination of laminate and compact structures which minimizes its size to just 35.76 cm³ – similar to the size of a normal 18W charger.
“In the era of intelligent connectivity, OPPO’s ultra-small charger series will provide flash charging anywhere and at any time. Charge-and-go is now a reality, a single charger which powers multiple devices,” added Ms Wachira.
As of June 2020, OPPO has applied for more than 2,800 global patents for flash charging. The firm’s 30-plus smartphone models featuring VOOC flash charge technology have delivered the ultra-fast charging experience to over 157 million users globally. With demand growing for mobile flash charging in the era of intelligent connectivity, OPPO will continue to improve and upgrade the VOOC flash charge platforms and develop advanced technologies to deliver flash-charging experiences suitable to all usage scenarios for its users across the world.
