OPPO in June this year unveiled its innovative 125W wired flash charger alongside a 65W wireless charger at ChinaJoy show. The tech giant left off without revealing when both products would go commercial. Noted tipster Digital Chat Station has disclosed that the 125W super-fast charger will go commercial in the first quarter of next year (2021).
The 125W flash charging technology is currently the industry’s most powerful fast charging technology for mobile phones. It is built on the existing 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 charging protocol. In order to achieve an incredible 125W, the OPPO Flash Charge increases the voltage to 20V while the maximum current drops a little to 6.25A. This is further made possible by significantly improving power density properties. Instead of two 3C cells found on the SuperVOOC 2.0 tech, the new Flash Charge protocol utilizes two 6C cells. The new technology further comes with industry-leading multiple battery tab structures, three parallel charge pumps, and an integrated MCU (Microcontroller Unit) for improving charging efficiency.
The 125W flash charge technology supports mainstream charging technologies like 65W PD (Power Delivery) and 125W PPS (Programmable Power Supply). OPPO says it only takes 5 minutes to charge a 4000mAh battery to 41% while the same battery can be fully charged in 20 minutes.
Given the extremely high wattage being thrust into the smartphone, OPPO has also worked on its safety protection features by adding 10 more temperature sensors to monitor the charging status. Other safety measures include fuse overvoltage protection, Type-C to Type-C wire as well as 128-bit high-strength encryption algorithm
The first OPPO model that will ship with the 125W adapter is still unknown. Considering that OPPO will release the Find X3 series in Q1 next year, the possibility of the flagship having the 125W adapter inside the retail box is not ruled out.
