Oppo's new 125W VOOC fully charges your phone in 20 minutes

This 50W mini SuperVOOC charger can fully charge a 4,000 mAh smartphone battery in 42 minutes. The company has since introduced 65W wired and 40W wireless charging solutions. This was obviously headlined by the super-quick 125W wired charging spec.

While Oppo has yet to reveal pricing or availability for its new range of charging gear, we can probably at least a couple of them to become available later this year alongside a new line of Oppo phones. While super-fast charging speeds are great, if it means the battery in your phone only lasts for one or two years before it has to be replaced, it might not be worth it.

How fast is it?

This is quite interesting because a five minutes stop for a charge can give you a significant power boost.

The three-way charge simultaneously pumps step-down voltage to maximize the charging power and effectively reduce heat dissipation.

For existing SuperVOOC devices, Oppo brought the new 50W mini SuperVOOC charger that is about 60 grams in weight and measures 82.2x39x10.5mm.

There are also ten additional temperature sensors to monitor charging status and "ensure maximum safety during charging". While many may assume that it's a proprietary technology and won't be compatible with other devices. This technology supports PPS, PD, and QC...as long as it conforms to the Type-C interface, it can "flash charge". The 110W mini flash charger is about the size of a normal 18W charger, yet we're talking about unheard of speeds that are really only topped by the big boy 125W charger we mentioned above.

To help get to those super-fast charging speeds, Oppo supports 20-volt charging at 6.25 amps, while also using three charging pumps to deliver an impressive 98% charging efficiency.

Not only it can provide blazing fast charging for future Oppo smartphones, but it also supports other fast charging protocols.

Here is Oppo's new range of super-fast charging tech. And because AirVooc is Qi-compatible, it should work with nearly every modern phone with wireless charging, though it's unclear if phones with standard Qi charging will get the same peak 65-watt charging speeds. Flash Charge is on a completely different level compared with most smartphone charging systems. Placing the phone horizontally will result in slower 25W charging speed, which is not bad either.

Furthermore, the charger is also compatible with USB Power Delivery (PD) at 65W and USB Power Delivery Programmable Power Supply (PPS) at 125W. OPPO promises a charging speed of just 30 minutes to fully top-up a 4,000mAh battery.

The 65W AirVOOC fast wireless charger will be packed with a glass surface coupled with a semiconductor cooler and a fan to keep the temperatures of both the phone and charging pad under control.

The 125W flash charge technology may be official, but there's no telling what phones will support it. Oppo says the charger needs just five minutes to charge a 4,000 mAh up to 41%, and 20 minutes for a full refill "at the fastest rate".
