Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has today announced that it has signed a license agreement with eight companies, including product and chipset manufacturers, to develop, manufacture and sell devices with support for VOOC Flash Charging technology.
Prior to this, in November last year, the company had entered into a similar license agreement with around six companies. The addition of eight more companies will help the company to further expand the footprints of VOOC technology.
The eight companies which entered into a license agreement with Oppo for the VOOC tech includes Anke Innovation Technology Co., Ltd., Angbao Electronics (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., Hangzhou Shilan Microelectronics Co., Ltd., Lilinda Technology Group Co., Ltd., Ningbo Bull Digital Technology Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Renqing Excellence Investment Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Shishang Exhibition Technology Co., Ltd. and Core Sea Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd.
Commenting on this development, Feng Ying, Director of IP at Oppo, said: “VOOC flash charging technology fully demonstrates OPPO’s technological leadership in the field of fast charging, greatly enhancing the user’s charging experience. We are very pleased to be able to promote the sustainable development of VOOC’s flash-filled ecology through our external licensing. Today, OPPO VOOC flash has 14 excellent industry chain partners. In the future, we will also open the license to more enterprises, vOOC flash-charge technology plus accessories, chips and other areas of development.”
There are three versions of this flash charging technology — VOOC, VOOC Mini, and Super VOOC. The company has also developed a new 15W Wireless Flash Charging technology. Last year, Oppo had revealed that more than 100 million devices worldwide are using the company’s VOOC flash charging technology.
VOOC Flash Charge uses a low-voltage and high-current charging solution and claims to provide 2 hours of talk time when the phone is charged for only 5 minutes. VOOC Mini, on the other hand, has been optimized to have smaller adaptors. SuperVOOC, which is used in the company’s flagship devices, has a maximum charging power of around 50W, charging the phone in just 35 minutes.
