Oppo has broken all fast charging records by showcasing its 240 W SuperVOOC technology. It can supposedly charge a 4,500 mAh smartphone battery in just 9 minutes. The tech could make its way to future Oppo flagship smartphones.

MWC 2022 was host to quite a few battery-centric announcements. Realme demonstrated its 150 W fast charging tech and announced the GT Neo 3 smartphone that would support the technology. Oppo did the same; however, that is dwarfed by Oppo's next feat, breaching the 200 W barrier.

Oppo showcased a new iteration of SuperVOOC charging technology that can hit wattages of up to 240 W. That, according to Oppo, is enough top up a 4,500 smartphone battery in less than ten minute. While the endeavour is nothing short of impressive, it is in all likelihood a proof of concept, and the tech is unlikely to be featured in a commercially-available smartphone anytime soon.

The ability to charge a smartphone battery 240 W puts Oppo ahead of pretty much everyone else. Xiaomi comes in second with its 200 W demo from last year (2021). Nubia's recently-launched RedMagic 7 ships with a 165 W charger. However, the fast charging race is a tad pointless, given the diminishing returns. This Jurassic Park quote perfectly sums it up.

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could; they didn't stop to think if they should.
