OPPO is a Chinese phone manufacturer responsible for taking a few of their phones to the next level when it comes to adding some type of new feature to a phone — take rotating cameras for example. This time around, OPPO is looking into getting the battery on your phone charged in a mere 15 minutes for their future devices. Using a battery size of 2,500mAh though and that phone is able to reach 45% battery life in just 5 minutes of charging, with a full charge achieved after 15 minutes.
When I say new, I mean updated Super VOOC charging here. OPPO hasn’t released much detail about the new Super VOOC, but it can work with micro USB and USB type C charging ports and will need to be used with the new VOOC charging block, a whole new cable, and a connector that’s been made from military grade materials. If you’re thinking about using a different type of quick charger instead of what OPPO offers, it can be used but it will charge the device slowly “due to the temperature spikes caused by quick charging and screen brightening simultaneously.”
Here’s a the little bit of information OPPO has provided about the new Super VOOC tech.
VOOC Flash Charge added an intelligent MCU chip (flash core) in the adapter in order to achieve revolutionary voltage open-loop and multi-stage, constant-current charging.
VOOC Flash Charge creatively changes circuit topologies, meanwhile creates an all-side, five-level protection technique from the adapter to the interface as well as the device, securing the safety as well as the speed.
Because of the difference in charging mechanism and efficiency, the temperature of a smartphone using VOOC Flash Charge remains significantly lower during the charging process than a phone using a high-voltage solution. VOOC Flash Charge-enabled devices will heat up by a maximum of only 3.3 degrees Celsius.
Because temperatures can be regulated so effectively during charging with VOOC Flash Charge, the smartphone can safely be used during the charging process. For instance, you can Flash Charge your smartphone while surfing the Internet, watching videos, or playing games.
This is still in an experimental state, but OPPO has high hopes of getting Super VOOC in a lot of their newer devices. What are your thoughts about OPPO’s new battery tech? Think 15 minutes of charging up a phone’s battery will be beneficial and not harm the battery over time?
