0 to 100% in 9 minutes with this new smartphone charger

Oppo has unveiled two breakthroughs in fast flash charging: 150W SUPERVOOC with Battery Health Engine (BHE) and 240W SUPERVOOC flash charging technology.

The announcement was made at Mobile World Congress 2022 on Wednesday.

Oppo said it has integrated its proprietary BHE into the ultra-fast 150W SUPERVOOC flash charge, allowing the battery to retain 80% of its original capacity after a whopping 1,600 charge cycles.

More impressively though, 150W SUPERVOOC with BHE can charge a 4500mAh battery from 1% to 50% in 5 minutes and all the way to 100% in 15 minutes.

To enhance the overall charging experience, the 150W SUPERVOOC flash charge features the Battery Health Engine that can monitor the electrical potential across the negative electrodes in the battery in real time.

Due to the growing demand for high-efficiency charging solutions in the era of 5G intelligent connectivity, OPPO has further pushed the boundaries of high-power flash charging and launched 240W SUPERVOOC. This new technology can charge a 4500 mAh battery to 100% in about 9 minutes.

240W SUPERVOOC is designed with 24V/10A technology on the Type-C interface. It features three charge pumps and the power supply to the handsets can be converted to 10V/24A. It conforms to existing device specifications and has been tested for heat dissipation, ensuring optimum efficiency and increased safety.

A custom battery monitoring chip checks whether the cell phone battery is damaged by external forces during use.

Temperature protection has been enhanced through 13 temperature sensors installed in the phone, reducing the chance of overheating and preventing anomalies.

Jeff Zhang, Chief Charging Technology Scientist at OPPO, said that as charging science continues to develop at an ever-increasing pace, users’ expectations are responding accordingly.

“We will continue to push the boundaries of powerful flash charging technologies, actively address emerging issues such as battery health degradation, and provide users with safe, efficient, smart and fast charging solutions beyond speed.”

BHE will be integrated into most mid-to-high-end OPPO and OnePlus phones in the future, bringing more users security, efficiency and durability.

150W SUPERVOOC flash charge with BHE will debut in the second quarter of this year on a OnePlus smartphone.
