Oppo teases 125 W fast charging breakthrough for July 15 reveal
If there is one area where Oppo really stands out from the pack is with its SuperVOOC fast charging technology. While several top makers are still stuck with 15 W to 25 W fast charging tech, devices like the Oppo Find X2 Pro are already shipping with 65 W SuperVOOC 2.0 technology. This is good for charging the 4,260 mAh battery in the Find X2 Pro from nil to a full charge in just over 30 minutes.
Not content with this, Oppo is set to ramp things up further with its latest announcement. In what will probably be dubbed SuperVOOC 3.0, Oppo’s 125 W fast charging solution is expected to be able to charge a 4,000 mAh battery from empty to full in just 10 minutes flat. While others are twiddling their thumbs with much slower solutions, Oppo is closing in on the dream of an instant charge.
The only problem with fast charging technology like SuperVOOC is that as the speeds increase, the trade off is reduced battery longevity. In a test with the Reno Ace 2 using 65 W SuperVOOC 2 tech, battery health degraded to 91 percent, although this was after 800 full charge cycles. If Oppo is able to keep its new 125 W fast charging tech in this ball park, it could be on a winner.
