OPPO Announces 125W Wired and 65W AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charge

OPPO's new 125W flash charge technology can charge a 4,000mAh battery up to 41% in only five minutes.

OPPO has doubled down on its charging offerings today as it has finally announced its 125W flash charge technology. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer previously teased, via a short clip, that it was unveiling the said tech on July 15. And in typical OPPO style, the company also has another surprise for those who prefer fast wireless charging. But more on that later.

OPPO's 125W flash charge feature can juice up a 4,000mAh battery up to 41% in just five minutes, and for the phone to be charged fully, one must only wait for 20 minutes.

So, how does the new charging tech protect both the power cell and smartphone from being charred? Accordingly, the tech features a design that packs three parallel charge pumps that split the power. OPPO has also employed ten additional temperature sensors to go extra on safety.

AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charge

OPPO has also unveiled the AirVOOC wireless charge. The new wireless charging breakthrough adopts a circular design that is aimed at improving its cooling system. There is also a glass panel in it that should dissipate heat.

OPPO also added a "self-developed isolated charge pump technology" with parallel dual-coil design, which should ultimately beef up wireless charging efficiency. The latest innovation is said to be operating on the same level as the company's wired 65W SuperVOOC 2.0. As it is, there are two coils that are charged simultaneously. On paper, this should charge a 4,000mAh battery fully in only 30 minutes.

The accompanying charger which boasts the new technology is in its conceptual stage. But for the curious, the bottom of the charger features a cooling fan, which lowers the temperature by two degrees Celsius. The charger also comes with a design that is complementary to its air-cooling system.

50W mini SuperVOOC and 110W mini flash chargers

Alongside its newest inventions, OPPO has also announced a series of mini chargers.

The first is the 50W mini SuperVOOC charger. The cookie-sized charger is compatible with VOOC protocols and supports mainstream ones such as the 27W PD and 50W PPS. It can also charge several devices, which include laptops, apart from smartphones, of course.

The second one is the 110W mini flash charger. It is built around a combination of laminate and compact elements that culminate in its minuscule size. The charger, which uses dual-level architecture, also boasts a non-electrolytic capacitor design and a high-frequency Planar transformer.

Currently, OPPO's series of VOOC charging technologies is servicing 157 million users worldwide. Once this new charging technology comes out, one can only expect to see these numbers rise.
