OPPO’s Super VOOC charges a 2500mAh battery to 100% in 15 minutes!


OPPO had been teasing some new and interesting tech that they were going to announce at MWC. Well, the day is here and we’ll have to concede that the hype was warranted!

OPPO have announced a couple different technologies. Let’s take a look at Super VOOC first.

If you’ve been following OPPO’s progress in the recent years, you’ll know in an instant that Super VOOC is going to be about fast charging. And it is.

Only this time, it’s super fast charging.

Super VOOC allows you to charge compatible devices super fast. OPPO demoed a 2500mAh phone, which they charged from 0-100% in a mere 15 minutes!

Besides that, this tech also gives 2 hours of talk time after a brief 5 minute charge.

What is good about Super VOOC is that it doesn’t work on 9V or 12V like some other fast charging solutions we’ve seen of late. Instead, it’ll work at the same 5V, which OPPO claim won’t cause harm to the battery/jeopardise its longevity.

The company also claims that the tech uses a “new algorithm to dynamically regulate the current”, and that it doesn’t require a voltage converter which increases efficiency and reduces the operating temperature.

OPPO mention that Super VOOC will work with micro USB as well as USB Type-C devices.

VOOC was one of our favourite features on the Find 7; and we expect to only grow fonder of the tech this time round.

There’s no sign of the Find 9 at MWC however. That said, the phone — whenever it does come out — will, for sure, have Super VOOC fast charging.

    And discharges in 30 minutes? No way battery with this kind of usage will last more than a year max.

    If that works in the real world and can be used safely, then it’s awesome. However I am reserved.

    One of the primary reasons that I find sealed batteries a downgrade is the charging time. I can’t stand how long it takes for them to charge (by comparison it takes 1 minute to swap a battery and get 100%).

    If they significantly improve that situation, sealed batteries would actually become a competitive technology instead of a downgrade.

    Having said that, issues of lithium degradation must be taken in account. If for example the batteries lose max charge using this method faster than regular charging, it may not worth it.

    Regular batteries lose about 20% every two years of regular use (which is quite a lot -already- for some people). If due to this method your battery loses 20% charge -say- every 6 months, then this method doesn’t solve anything, if anything exaggerates the issues of sealed batteries…
