Oppo launches Wireless Air Charging and an initiative to drive VOOC charging to more devices

This year as part of Mobile World Congress Shanghai (MWCS), Oppo is showcasing their new Wireless Air Charging technology that promises up to 7.5W of charging power. This technology uses magnetic resonance to remove some of the inconvenience of other wireless charging technologies, working as soon as devices are within 10cm of the charging mat.

They have also brought charging solutions announced in July last year like their 125W fast-charging technology (125W SuperVOOC) that can charge a 4,000mAh phone fully in just 20 minutes, a 65W wireless charging (65W AirVOOC) that can fully charge 4,000mAh devices in 30 minutes, and 50W and 110W mini chargers' that support multiple charging protocols to charge laptops, tablets, and other portable devices.

 

Driving VOOC growth through partners

At MWCS Oppo also announced “The Flash Initiative” to expand its proprietary VOOC flash charging technology to multiple areas.

This will be driven by partnerships with other companies, with the first few being Anker, FAW-Volkswagen, and NXP Semiconductors. Each partner will work with proprietary technical designs developed by Oppo to develop charging solutions for the home, car, and public spaces.

Adler Feng, Senior Director of Intellectual Property at Oppo said:

Thanks to our new partners, our proprietary technologies can reach more people than ever before. This is a vital step in freeing consumers to use their devices however they want, no matter what they need to do or where in the world they are.

Anker will be bringing flash charging to products from power banks to chargers and vacuum cleaners to headphones. FAW-Volkswagen will use Oppo’s charging IP to incorporate rapid charging into Audi and Volkswagen cars made in China. NXP Semiconductors will implement VOOC flash charging across its printed circuit board assemblies so flash charging could be integrated into more automotive applications, public spaces, and industrial settings.
