The Oppo brand opens the ball of fast charging systems exceeding 100W with a new charger capable of reaching 125W. It also unveils an AirVOOC device for 65W wireless charging.
The rapid charging of smartphones has become for some manufacturers a marketing issue pushing them to offer ever higher powers. If the end of 2019 has seen rapid charges of 65W, the transition to 100W and more is planned this year among the earliest players.
The manufacturer Oppo opens the ball of these announcements with the formalization of a wired fast charger offering a power of 125W, according to a combination 20V / 6,5A. It is clad in security to prevent overheating and has a 128-bit encryption algorithm to prevent hacking and malicious operation that could do damage.
With such power, a 4000 mAh battery is charged at 41% in 5 minutes while a full charge requires only 20 minutes. It is also capable of charging USB-PD (Power Delivery) of 65W.
Oppo also unveils a 110W wired mini-charger and a 50W SuperVOOC charger using the advantages of GaN (gallium nitride) to guarantee a compact format.
The manufacturer also presents an AirVOOC wireless charging system with a record capacity of 65W. It is not yet planned to market it, but Oppo already ensures that the charge curve is similar to that of a SuperVOOC 65W wired charge.
A 4000 mAh battery is fully charged in 30 minutes with this system which is also compatible with the Qi standard. Oppo already sees it as a solution of choice for future 5G smartphones.
