One of the year’s best mobile innovations has got to be Oppo’s VOOC charger. Capable of charging the Find 7‘s 3000mAh battery from 0 to 75% in just 30 minutes, the VOOC charger fixes one of the modern smartphone’s major annoyances. But given that the charger is more than two times larger and heavier than a standard microUSB charger, some may prefer a more portable option – such as an in-car charger, which Oppo has just teased via its Twitter page.
The fast-charging VOOC charger is capable of delivering an exceptionally high output of 4.5A, over twice the output that normal microUSB chargers. In addition, the VOOC charger – a product of Oppo’s internal research team – offers five layers of protection to increase the safety and efficiency of the charger. On top of that, Oppo also designed the VOOC charger to be capable of charging non-VOOC supported devices – the connector fits into a standard microUSB port, but will charge on the highest possible output that is supported on the device.
Here’s a demonstration of just how much faster the VOOC charger is compared to a conventional microUSB charger:
For now, not much information has been revealed, but it looks like this is an actual product that Oppo is planning to release. The company claims that more information will be revealed via its social media channels, where its availability and price would be revealed in the future.
