Oppo introduced 150W Super VOOC charger and battery healing tech and demos 240W charging

It has been just a few days since the launch of the Find X5 series which supports 80W SuperVOOC. Now the brand at its MWC presentation introduced an upgraded system that will deliver nearly double the power.

In a lab test, the upcoming 150W SuperVOOC system charged a prototype phone with a 4,500mAh battery from 1% to 50% in just 5 minutes and hit the 100% mark in mere 15 minutes (this was with the device powered on, but inactive and in airplane mode). From a comparison perspective, the older 65W charger took about 40 minutes to hit the 100% milestone.

The new system introduces a 150W SuperVOOC charger. Thanks to its GaN tech, the adapter measures 58 x 57 x 30mm and weighs 172g. This isn’t much larger than Oppo’s old 65W SuperVOOC adapter. This also means that the adapter has a power density of 1.51W/cm3, much higher than a typical charger.

While VOOC tech is proprietary (with 1,786 patents granted and 1,604 still pending), the new charger supports the USB Power Delivery and PPS protocols that are used by phones, laptops and other gadgets.

The built-in battery health engine, introduced with Find X5 series, helps keep the battery performing at 80% of its original capacity even after 1,600 charge cycles, which Oppo says is doubled compared to the current industry standard.

In terms of availability on commercial devices, Oppo said the 150W fast charger will be available on select OnePlus smartphones in Q2, 2022.

Furthermore, Oppo is also taking a leap in the fast charging race with the awe-inspiring 240W SuperVOOC flash charge, which was also demonstrated at the MWC 2022. The 240W SuperVOOC flash charge is capable of charging the 4,500mAh battery to 100% in about 9 minutes.
