Vivo teases tech that can charge your phone to 100% in 13 minutes
A Vivo product manager, known on the Chinese social media platform Weibo as Golan V, has published a video last Thursday, June 20, teasing a new technology developed by the company that can charge a 4,000-milliamp-hour smartphone in 13 minutes.
No further details were revealed about the Super FlashCharge 120W technology, but if it makes it into a commercial product soon, such a solution would be the fastest on the market, tripling the charging speed of the fastest Vivo tech currently available.
In the same amount of time that Oppo’s Super VOOC Flash Charge — the fastest tech presently available — can fill a 3,400-milliamp-hour battery, Vivo’s Super FlashCharge 120W tech could have charged three 4,000-milliamp-hour handsets. Huawei’s Super Charge 2.0 system can charge a phone to 70% in 30 minutes, and Samsung’s Fast Charging equipment can only recharge designated devices to 50% in the same amount of time.
Within his responses to comments made about the video, Golan V stated that more details about the technology will be revealed during Mobile World Congress Shanghai which will kick off next week on June 26. RGA/JB
