200W fast charging raises questions regarding charging speeds in the smartphone industry

At MWC22, OPPO brought to the stage a groundbreaking improvement which iQOO has imitated with 200W fast charging on their new device. This charging technology from OPPO (240W SuperVOOC charge) is the fastest that is attainable in the smartphone industry now. For safety reasons, the company uses what it calls a “Battery Health Engine” to help curb degradation as a result of the charging speed.

Some other companies have made series of improvements to their charging technologies. The aim is simply to help users get a full charge in less time. But, OPPO has set the bar above what the industry previously held as the fastest charging speed for a smartphone. It’s been over four months since this charging technology from OPPO came into existence, but it is just reaching the hands of users.

Ultimately, we knew that OPPO or one of its sister companies will launch with this technology. Now, we are seeing iQOO with something close to what OPPO debuted. The new iQOO 10 series uses 200W fast charging, whereas OPPO showcased 240W fast charge at MWC22. Just 40W apart from each other, this means that it won’t be long before we see the actual 240W behemoth on an actual device.

The improvement in charging technology and overall charging speed leads us to wonder what is next. According to OPPO, their 240W fast charger can take a typical, 4500mAh battery to 100% in just 9 minutes. The iQOO 10 Pro offers a 200W fast charge which will fully charge the 4700mAh battery in 10 minutes.

These charging figures are impressive as they ensure a full battery in no time. A feature that is useful in regions without a steady supply of electricity. But, most companies like Apple and Samsung have not made any significant improvements to their charging speeds. Despite the industry’s improvement on charging speeds across different brands.

What is next (regarding charging technology) will remain the question on the minds of most people today. How fast will the next charging speed be? Will the industry pause improving on wired charging speeds and turn their attention to wireless charging speeds? These questions will continue puzzling our minds until we see a new charging innovation come to the industry.
