Due to the fact that smartphone battery technology hasn’t really changed that much since smartphones were first launched, we suppose the next best thing would be charging technology to juice up our phones super fast. Oppo has unveiled what could possibly be one of the fastest charging systems in the world with their 150W SuperVOOC tech.
According to Oppo, its 150W SuperVOOC tech will be able to charge a 4,500mAh battery from 0-50% in just 5 minutes, and 0-100% in just 15 minutes, which is pretty insane! It’s less time than a regular TV show to complete, meaning that you could throw on a video on YouTube or Netflix and your phone will be fully charged before it finishes.
However, the problem with fast charging tech is the heat it generates, and so to counter that, Oppo has created a Battery Health Engine meant to help monitor the battery and its temperature. There is also a failsafe that will activate in the event that something goes wrong. This system also ensures that the battery is able to maintain 80% of its capacity after 1,600 charging cycles.
Oppo wouldn’t be the first to experiment with fast charging systems. Last year, Infinix unveiled a concept phone that featured 160W charging, so they are definitely not alone in trying to push the envelope.
