MWC 2016 | Oppo Super VOOC Flash Charge promises a full charge in 15 minutes

This technology that is still under development promises to deliver a full smartphone battery charge in no more than 15 minutes.

When talking about handsets, tablets, or even laptops, battery technology did not manage to keep up with the other hardware parts of these devices. While large capacity batteries are lighter than a few years ago and the memory effect is history for most modern power packs, charging a regular smartphone battery still takes more than an hour in most cases, sometimes much more. Fortunately, Oppo promises to solve this problem with the help of the technology they named Super VOOC Flash Charge.

Oppo Super VOOC Flash Charge has been in the works for a while now since its predecessor has hit the market with the Find 7 back in March 2014. Oppo Find 7's 3000 mAh battery, thanks to the VOOC Flash Charge technology, charges up to 75 percent in 30 minutes, enough for an entire day of mixed usage. Its successor, Super VOOC Flash Charge, can bring a 2500 mAh battery from 0 to 45 percent charge in just 5 minutes, reaching the 100 percent mark in just 15 minutes.

According to Oppo, they sold no less than 17 million devices with VOOC Flash Charge so far. In two years since its debut on the market, this technology managed to win 8 international science and technology awards. The first Oppo device featuring Super VOOC Flash Charge is expected to launch later this year and, if the company decides to license this technology to other handset makers, really fast charging might become regular with most smartphones by the end of 2017.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
