Oppo not only launched the 125W insanely fast wired charging tech but also three more chargers to give you the power of fast-charging in your hands. The other products announced are 65W AirVOOC wireless pad concept, a 110W mini flash charger, and a 50W wall charger based on its SuperVOOC standard.
As briefed and demoed earlier, the 125W flash charge technology is able to charger a 4,000mAh phone up to 50% in around 8 minutes and fully charge it in 20 minutes. It is compatible with SuperVOOC and VOOC flash charger protocols and it also supports mainstream protocols including 65W PD and 125W PPS. It has 20V/6.25 output and it features Type-C interface on both ends.
Oppo claims it has taken care of safety and protection features in the 125W charger. Oppo touts it has added 10 additional temperature sensors as strict temperature control regulators that monitor the charging status and ensure safety during charging.
Coming to the 65W AirVOOC, it is a wireless fast-charging tech that also comes with a new “conceptual” 65W AirVOOC wireless charging dock that will be able to fully charge a 4,000mAh device in just 30 minutes.
The company says it will achieve this fast charging rate by reducing the interference to the magnetic induction coil. The conceptualized wireless charger showcased by Oppo features a sculpted glass that looks beautiful. There is a semiconductor cooler at the bottom of the charger that adjusts the heat entering and exiting the charger.
Apart from launching the two charging technologies, Oppo also unveiled two new compact chargers – 110W mini flash charger and a 50W mini SuperVOOC charger. The mini charger is just 60gms in weight and can charge up to 27W on the main USB Power Delivery standard. It can charge a variety of devices including mobile phones and laptops. Oppo touts that with only 1.05cm thickness, it can be slid into the shirt and coat pockets.
Both the chargers use Gallium Nitride and allow for more efficient current transmission and space utilization. The 110W charger is only 1.2cm thick, similar to the size of a normal 18W charger.
Oppo has not disclosed the availability of the new 125W wired and 65W wireless charging technologies, nor has it mentioned the names of devices that will be first to receive the support. But looking at the company’s willingness to continuously improve the flash charge platforms, the day is not too far when we will see at least 125W coming to a smartphone.
