Many manufacturers no longer provide chargers with their smartphones in the box. Following Apple, similar policies were implemented by Samsung and Google, for instance. Oppo should soon follow them, by removing its chargers from its smartphone boxes.
The company conducted a question-and-answer session with Billy Zhang, its vice president in charge of international sales and services, on the sidelines of the conference for the European debut of the Oppo Reno 8, as well as the Reno 8 Pro and Reno 8 Lite or the Oppo Pad Air, which was held in Paris. One of the many issues covered during their conversation of almost an hour was the include of a charger in the packaging of Oppo smartphones.
Billy Zhang started out by showcasing his team’s expertise in quick charging with its SuperVooc solution. Consider the fact that the manufacturer is getting ready to release a 240 W charger. It has 24 volts and 10 amps and will launch in 2023. With this, a 4500 mAh battery may fully charge in nine minutes. And this happens without impacting the battery’s lifespan.
Oppo intends to remove the chargers from the boxes of its smartphones
Billy Zhang notes that Oppo wants to keep making this technology accessible to users. Because the company is aware that it might be difficult to get a SuperVooc charger on the market at the moment. The 80 W charger for the Find X5 Pro (and Reno 8) is not available in the company’s catalog. As we can see by visiting the manufacturer’s online shop. However, a 65 W block and accompanying cable are available.
The spokesman says, “For now, we have to keep putting it in the box to provide it to our users”. On the other hand, he makes it clear that Oppo was considering removing the charger from the packaging of “certain products” starting in 2019. Billy Zhang emphasizes that the company is really thinking about this issue. And providing SuperVooc chargers to certain shops raises this prospect.
As a result, we do not know whether Oppo will really remove the charger from the packaging of any of its next smartphones. But the likelihood is extremely strong and the company does not conceal it.
