Smart phone these days are getting bigger in size and so is their appetite for power. If you glance at today’s flagship models, most of them are having batteries with an average of 3,000mAh capacities. Just two years ago, these are considered huge like the Motorola RAZR Maxx and the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Obviously with a larger battery, it takes longer to charge your smart phone up to 100%.
To address your waiting time problems, the new Oppo Find 7 comes with a unique charging feature called VOOC. This is their proprietary rapid charging technology which charges up 4X faster than conventional chargers. According to Oppo, it is capable of getting you from 0% to 75% battery life in just 30 minutes, while a quick 5 minutes charge is sufficient enough to supply 2 hours of talk time. To enable VOOC charging, you’ll need to charge the Find 7 with a special VOOC charger that comes with an integrated 7-pin microUSB cable.
On most smart phones, you’ll normally get a “fast charger” that pushes an output of 2.0 Amps. For VOOC, its charger pushes an epic max output of 4.5 Amps. That’s more than double and Oppo reckons that they have implemented its necessary fail safe protection layers to avoid overheating, overloading and long term battery degradation. When plugged in, the charger won’t charge 4.5 Amps throughout as it takes a multi-step approach as the battery level increases. This means it will charges up fairly quickly from 0% and then gradually slows down to 3.5A, followed by 2.0A and eventually to 1.0A as the battery is near to a full charge. To find out if VOOC is any better than other smart phone chargers, we’ve compared it against the Samsung Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2 and the Redmi Note.
