Hate waiting around for your phone to recharge? Oppo feels your pain, and they want you to know that they’ve come up with a solution.
Oppo has just unveiled the follow-up to their SuperVOOC fast charging system. As you might expect of the follow-up to something fast, it’s even faster. Crazy fast, even.
A 65-watt SuperVOOC 2.0 charger can take a compatible smartphone from completely dead to fully recharged in just 30 minutes. That’s for the 4000mAh battery in the Oppo Reno Ace, which is due to launch in China on October 10th.
Can’t twiddle your thumbs that long? SuperVOOC 2.0 can replenish 27% of the Reno Ace’s battery in just 5 minutes.
Because lithium ion batteries aren’t necessarily the most unblowupable things around, Oppo devoted a good deal of time and effort into making sure SuperVOOC 2.0 was as safe as it is fast. While they don’t get into too many specifics in their announcement, Oppo says there are “five safety protection measures” in the adapter, cable, and the phone itself.

As impressive as SuperVOOC 2.0 is, it’s not the fastest charging technology that’s been unveiled this year. Liliputing’s Brad Linder points to two alternatives that loudly proclaim “hold my beer.”
One is Xiaomi’s crazy-powerful 100-watt fast charger. In demonstrations it replenishes a 4000mAh battery in a ridiculous 17 minutes.
The other comes from Vivo. If 17 minutes is still too stinkin’ long for you, then you’ll want to invest in a phone that uses their Super FlashCharge tech. The 120W charger can whittle the recharge time on the same battery all the way down to 13 minutes.
While SuperVOOC 2.0 might not be the fastest charging system around, it’s certainly very good. What might be better, though, is the 30-watt Wireless VOOC Flash Charge Oppo announced at the same time.
Place your phone atop the charging pad and it’s back to 100% in 80 minutes. It’s also fully Qi compliant, so it can also power up all your pokey 5- and 10-watt devices.
