Oppo 125 W fast charging official plus 65 W wireless AirVOOC charging too
Oppo continues to blaze a very fast trail for smartphone charging adding ultra-fast wireless charging into the mix for the first time as well. Its new 125 W Super VOOC tech will charge a 4,000 mAh battery completely in just 20 minutes. It will also charge a battery to 41 percent in just 5 minutes. The system utilizes a new double-6C cell arrangement and three parallel charge pumps to improve charging efficiency to an incredible 98 percent.
Oppo’s new wireless fast charging tech is called Air VOOC that bests the rest of the market by some way. It can wirelessly charge a compatible smartphone at 65 W which is good for a fast charging a 4,000 mAh battery in 30 minutes – much faster than the wired charging technology currently used by the likes of Apple and Samsung among others. It relies on the smartphone to be equipped with a parallel dual coil design while it is also compatible with the Qi charging standard.
Additionally, the Chinese company has launched an ultra-compact 50 W mini Super VOOC charger that weighs in a at a mere 50 grams, or about the size of a business card holder. It also supports the 27 W PD and 50 W PPS standards and can charge devices including laptops using the latest GaN technology. This has been joined by a 110 W mini flash charger that is around the size of a typical 18 W charger. It too can charge other smartphones and laptops as well by doubling the layers of the charging tech found in the smaller model.
Oppo hasn’t yet announced any devices compatible with its new 125 W wired Super VOOC tech or that can support its new 65 W Air VOOC wireless charging tech, so watch this space for an impending announcement.
