Oppo announced a 125W flash charge charger a few weeks ago in the event in China. However, the company claimed that the 4,000 mAh battery could charge up to 41% in five minutes, while it will need a total of 20 minutes to reach 100%. Today, Oppo demonstrated the 125W flash charge in a 4,000 mAh battery, and also brought it up to from 0% to 41% in 5 minutes. Precisely what the company claimed earlier.
As we know, last year, Oppo launched the 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charger, which would have needed 30 minutes to charge the 4000 mah battery. However, 125W isn’t twice as fast despite having twice the top power output because the charging speeds decrease as the battery fills up to prevent heat accumulation and protect the battery.
Oppo has raised the number of temperature sensors from 4 on SV2.0 to 10 for flash charge phones to ensure the battery never exceeds 40°C. To prevent hackers from flashing new firmware, the company used modern 128-bit encryption for the power bricks.
Currently, there are no smartphones in the market that support 125W. Although, the company started the mass production of flash charges according to the latest report. We can expect a new Oppo device that would support a 125W flash charge in the coming days.
