According to reports from @DigitalChatStation, Oppo’s 125W charging solution fills a 4500 mAh battery in 20 minutes. However, its upcoming flagship will most likely use its 65W solution. This is because the 125W solution is not quite ready. The heat control is not ideal (it may also be due to the design).


The company claims that this charging solution can deliver up to 41% in just 5 minutes, this is for a 4000 mAh battery. However, it will deliver a full charge within 20 minutes. Also, its temperature remains below 40°C when the screen is off and on standby. OPPO 125W Super Flash Charger supports VOOC, SuperVOOC, compatible with PPS, PD, and QC protocols. It also supports 12.5A current input, multi-pole technology, dual 6C batteries.
