When it comes to smartphones, the most important thing we found is charging. Especially nowadays everyone wants fast charging in their smartphones. Today we have collected a bunch of best fast charging technologies in various smartphone companies.
OPPO VOOC/SuperVOOC, OnePlus Dash/Warp, and Realme Dart/SuperDart charging
As the heading, you must have known that all these three companies use the same charging technologies, their Research & Developments departments are also working together.
OPPO was the first earliest brand to introduce its exclusive charging technology. announced the first version of the technology in 2014.
As the acronym suggests, chargers designed for the VOOC standard depends on a higher current value while keeping the voltage close to the battery’s voltage. This eliminates the need to step down the voltage purposefully, and that in turn prevents overheating. With VOOC, OPPO smartphones could charge at 20W (5v, 4A).
SuperVooc Charge 65
In 2020, OPPO showcased the SuperVOOC 2.0 charging technology with a 65W (10V, 6.5A) output. The was first introduced with the OPPO Find X2 Pro and later repeated on the OPPO Reno 4 Pro and the OPPO Reno 5 Pro. Despite, before OPPO’s formal declaration, Realme introduced the same technology but with a different name SuperDart on the Realme X50 Pro. Besides, OnePlus which was among the earliest brands to contain superfast charging jumped the game with 65W charging on the OnePlus 8T, choosing a different name Warp Charge 65.
Advancing further from the 65W charging technology, OPPO announced its 125W flash charge protocol along with a 110W GaN charger. With this technology, OPPO claims a 4000mAh battery can be charged fully within 20 minutes. The technology uses a high 20V potential to transfer current at a rate of 6.25A. For higher efficiency at high voltage, OPPO uses chargers with Gallium Nitride (GaN) — a more power-efficient semiconductor than silicon.
Vivo 120W Super Flash Charge
iQOO 7 by Vivo’s sub-brand is officially the fastest charging smartphone. this smartphone is not only a concept device and is available for sale in China. The iQOO 7 uses Vivo’s 120W Super Flash Charge technology that the company first showed back in 2019. We have yet to see a phone with a Vivo branding to support this tech or even an iQOO phone available globally, In India iQOO 7 is expected to launch in April 2021.
iQOO’s 120W FlashCharge fast charging can fully charge a 4000mAh battery within 15 mins
Huawei introduced its SuperCharge technology back in 2017 with the Mate 10. Just like OPPO, Huawei’s fast charging technology also used a higher current than other competitors using technologies like Quick Charge. The first-generation offered a 22.5W power output (5V, 4.5A). Huawei has 40W (10V, 4A) available on the Huawei P30 Pro, Mate 30 Pro, and the P40 Pro
Huawei included another addition with the Mate 40 Pro/Pro Plus launched in late 2020 to support 66W (11V, 6A) charging.
Xiaomi 100W+ charging
Xiaomi smartphones have supported fast charging for a long time. Its flagships, including the Xiaomi Mi 4 through Mi 6, came with 18W fast charging. However, instead of spilling efforts into its proprietary charging technology, Xiaomi depends on Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology. Xiaomi showcased its own superfast 100W charging technology in 2019.
Samsung Adaptive/Super Fast Charging
Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charging relies on a high voltage and moderate current values. The first Adaptive Fast Charging protocol supported 18W (up to 9V, 2A) charging but was limited to only flagships. Starting with the Galaxy Note 5 and up to the Galaxy S20 series.
Samsung moved to 25W (11W, 2.25A) charging in 2019, and this standard is officially named Samsung Super Fast Charging. The 25W charger is claimed to charge the 4500mAh battery on the Galaxy phones to approximately 65% in 60 minutes.
Samsung also launched 45W (10V, 4.5A) charging with the Galaxy Note 10 series and then on the Galaxy S20 series. This technology is called Super Fast Charging 2.0, and it is expected much faster than the first generation.
