Shortly after the launch of the Oppo A7 smartphone with waterdrop notch display, Oppo has announced that it’ll be bringing its patented flash charging technology – SuperVOOC charging to India. Oppo says this will be the first time such a technology will be made available in the country as it’s expected to get close to the 50-watt charging milestone.
Oppo claims that SuperVOOC, just like VOOC Flash Charge has been designed with in-depth understanding and analysis of consumer demand and behaviour. The technology utilizes a bi-cell design which distributes the output voltage of 10V and reduces the voltage of each cell by half. This ensures safety which is of the same extent as that of VOOC charging on current Oppo smartphones.
With SuperVOOC technology, smartphones will be able to charge to up to 40 percent in just 10 minutes. This is possible because of the high output power of 50-watt (10v/5A) all the way from VOOC’s 20-watt (5a/4A) power supply. SuperVOOC Flash Charge also provides five-core protection, which checks the safety level when the phone is charging. All nodes including the charging plug, USB cable, mobile phone, and battery are separately protected by specialised chips.
Additionally, Oppo is also closely working with TUV Rheinland lab from Germany for added safety assurance. Oppo says its Flash Charge technology is currently live on over 90 million devices in just four years and will be succeeded by SuperVOOC Flash Charging technology in the near future.
Oppo is expected to launch a smartphone powered by this SuperVOOC Flash Charging technology in December and it remains to be seen if it’s anything to do with an upcoming R-series smartphone launch next month.
