OPPO marks a new era in mobile charging technology

OPPO Announces Global Partnership to Bring Flash Charging to Everyone, Everywhere

- The Flash Initiative will bring OPPO’s VOOC flash charging to automobiles, public spaces, and new devices - Anker, FAW-Volkswagen and NXP Semiconductors become newest partners

Shanghai, February 23, 2021 – Today, smart device company OPPO marks a new era in mobile charging technology, as it launches its flash charging project: The Flash Initiative. Based around OPPO’s pioneering VOOC flash charging, it sees visionary organizations license the OPPO technology to help bring faster charging to every area of consumers’ lives.

These new partners include FAW-Volkswagen, Anker and NXP Semiconductors —leaders in
their respective fields of automobiles, portable charging, and chip manufacture. Between them,
their products reach consumers in three settings where they often need to charge their devices:
their homes, their cars and out in public spaces. Each partner will work with proprietary technical
designs developed by OPPO, which has applied for more than 2,950 flash charging patents
worldwide, with over 1,400 already granted.

The Flash Initiative was born from OPPO’s commitment to make consumers’ lives as easy as
possible, as it takes its groundbreaking IP beyond consumer’s phone chargers at home,
expanding to cars, public spaces and chips inside a wide variety of technologies.

VOOC flash charging can be seen in action at Mobile World Congress, Shanghai (MWCS), at
booth number N2-E40.

Speaking at MWCS today, Adler Feng, Senior Director of Intellectual Property at OPPO said:

“The Flash Initiative reflects OPPO’s belief in human-centric technologies that make a difference
in people’s everyday lives. And thanks to our new partners, our proprietary technologies can
reach more people than ever before. This is a vital step in freeing consumers to use their devices
however they want, no matter what they need to do or where in the world they are.”
Cynthia Tan, Brand Director at Anker Innovations China said: “Our users have always been the
top priority at Anker, and this perfectly matches OPPO’s human-centric philosophy. From day
one, we wanted to use our innovations to bring the best charging technology we could to as many
people as possible. By working with OPPO, we’re looking forward to giving our customers new
flash charging experiences.”

Will Wang, Head of Smart Power & IoT Solutions, APAC, at NXP Semiconductors said: “We’re
working to build a smarter world, and faster charging is a crucial part of this. If we’re going to
improve people’s lives through technology, then we need to make their daily experiences easier
and more convenient—and OPPO’s VOOC flash charging technology does exactly that.”

Technology certification laboratory CTTL (China Telecommunication Technology
Laboratory) will test and certify any partner products made with VOOC flash charging
technology. As one of China’s largest tech certification labs, CTTL has led the way in setting
safety standards for fast charging technology, and has already granted OPPO a five-star
rating for its VOOC Flash Charging. OPPO has also worked with CTTL to develop a technical
paper that shares valuable information on flash charging technology, especially around device
and consumer safety. This will be published shortly after MWC Shanghai.

Leading the charge

OPPO’s VOOC technology launched in 2014, and the 30+ smartphone models that feature
VOOC have so far delivered the ultra-fast charging experience to over 175 million users around
the globe.

OPPO’s latest flash charging products are already making fast charging more convenient. The
tiny 50W Mini SuperVOOC charger can charge smartphones, tablets and even laptops—and is
just 10.05mm thick and 82.2mm long, so it easily fits in your pocket. Meanwhile, the 65W
AirVOOC wireless charger can fully power a 4,000mAh phone battery in 30 minutes—and the
125W flash charger can do the same in just 20 minutes. Each product uses low voltage charging,
with a dual-cell structure, and multiple charge pumps and temperature sensors to automatically
regulate voltage and dissipate heat.

Newest flash charging partners

The combined goal of OPPO’s newest partners is to provide access to fast charging in even more
scenarios, and empower consumers with technology that makes their lives easier and richer.

 

 – Anker, one of the world’s leading consumer electronic brands, creates innovative
products from power banks to chargers and vacuum cleaners to headphones. By
working with OPPO, Anker will help to bring flash charging to millions more people.
– FAW-Volkswagen, the joint venture between FAW Group and Volkswagen Group,
will use OPPO’s unique charging IP to incorporate rapid charging into Volkswagen
cars made in China, giving automobile drivers and passengers power on the go.
– Chip manufacturer NXP Semiconductors brings smart, connected solutions to a
range of sectors, from smart cities to industrial, automotive, mobile and the home.
Building on a longstanding relationship, NXP will implement several OPPO patents to
support VOOC flash charging across its printed circuit board assemblies, meaning
that flash charging could be more easily integrated into more automotive
applications, public spaces and industrial settings.
