Very recently, Oppo revealed its brand new magnetic flash charging technology. The Chinese tech giant is calling the new technology MagVOOC; moreover, the company has also applied for a trademark for the technology.
At the China International Smart Industry Expo 2021 on August 23rd August, Oppo unveiled the MagVOOC magnetic flash charging technology. The company also released three new concept products at the Expo – the MagVOOC magnetic wireless power bank, the MagVOOC ultra-thin portable magnetic charger, and the MagVOOC vertical magnetic charger Wireless charging base.
The MagVOOC ultra-thin portable magnetic charger has a split design of the transmitter coil and the mainboard. The split design not only makes the transmitter base lighter but also prevents the heat from being transferred to the phone. The dissipation of the produced heat this way would reduce the impact on the charging rate.
Oppo claims that the MagVOOC magnetic wireless power bank is similar to the external battery of a mobile phone. Oppo has also included a magnet that would solve the problem of alignment when it comes to the wireless power banks. The new MagVOOC supports 20W wireless charging and 10W wired charging for mobile phones. Moreover, the magnetic wireless charger can be charged using a 4500 mAh battery in just 2 hours. The charger is also compact in size, which makes it easier for the user to carry it. But a Chinese digital blogger has mentioned that Oppo has no plan to mass-produce the MagVOOC yet and that a 125W wired flash charging technology will be commercialized next year.
It is interesting to note that Apple is also working on a new magnetic wireless charging solution called the MagSafe which will be used in its iPhone 12 series. Oppo’s sub-brand, Realme has also announced a similar wireless charging technology called the MagDart. As per Realme, the MagDart can offer up to a 50W charge; however, this technology requires a fan to dissipate the heat.
