Apple iPhones can charge at 20W when you ask nicely, but Oppo completely screwed that up with a new 240W charger. To put that into perspective, Oppo says this technology is capable of charging a phone with a 4500W battery. mAh from 1%. 100% in just nine minutes.

And yes, it uses USB-C as the connector type.

We are accelerating fast charging. ⚡️

One of the main concerns about charging at such high speeds is whether it could affect the battery and weaken its ability to hold a charge. Oppo thinks he has a solution for this and our friends at TechRadar have the details.

Oppo has also minimized potential risks by taking a holistic approach to adapter, charging cable, and phone security.

The SUPERVOOC 240W has a specially customized intelligent control chip that must control the voltage, current and temperature to provide a safe charging solution. “A custom battery safety monitoring chip monitors whether the cell phone’s battery is damaged by external forces during use,” Oppo said.

13 different temperature sensors will be used in phones that support 240W SUPERVOOC technology to ensure things don’t get too toasty.

Any iPhone that could come close to these charging speeds would instantly become the best iPhone for road warriors and heavy photo and video users. Don’t expect Apple’s iPhone 14 to come close to what Oppo does.

All eyes will now be on Oppo to see when it can pack this technology into a device that people can actually buy. For now, the less exciting but equally crazy SUPERVOOC 150W solution will apparently debut in an upcoming OnePlus phone, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
