Yesterday, OPPO launched the Find X3 series as its latest flagship smartphone series. The two devices in the lineup, namely Find X3 and Find X3 Pro support the company’s 30W AirVOOC wireless charging protocol. However, the firm had quietly listed an even powerful 45W AirVOOC Wireless Charger on Jingdong (JD).
The OPPO ACE2 is the first smartphone to support the company’s AirVOOC wireless charging protocol. Unlike the OPPO Find X3 and the OPPO Find X3 Pro, the ACE2 can charge at a maximum rate of 40W. This handset was announced in April 2020 and it is sold exclusively in China.
In other words, OPPO did not launch any other phone with support for AirVOOC for almost a year. But the firm’s sister brand OnePlus did in the form of the OnePlus 8 Pro. OnePlus calls this protocol ‘Warp Charge Wireless’ and it maxes out at 30W.
Up until now, there were only two chargers to make use of this proprietary charging protocol. The first model is OPPO 40W AirVOOC Wireless Charger, which was announced alongside the OPPO ACE2. Whereas, the second product is the OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger.
This makes the new 45W AirVOOC Wireless Charger the third product to support this charging protocol. But the problem is OPPO does not have a single smartphone compatible with a 45W wireless charging rate. This hints that the company may release a new handset with support for this standard in the near future.
Whatever it may be, we can expect faster wireless charging smartphones from the three Oujia brands (OPPO, OnePlus, realme).
OPPO 45W AirVOOC Wireless Charger Specifications, Features, and Price
As the name suggests, the new OPPO AirVOOC wireless charger can support up to 45W output. However, the maximum speeds are only compatible with devices with AirVOOC tech. Whereas, devices with support for Qi charging protocol are limited to 15W only.
As far as inputs are concerned, this charger can be used with 18W, 20W, and 65W adapters. The maximum wireless charging speed will depend on the adapter used. Also, it is worth noting that the product does not ship with an adapter but it does come with a USB Type-A to Type-C cable.
The charging stand is vertical in design but phones can be placed both vertically and horizontally. Further, the charger will able to charge the phones at the maximum speed with a case that has a thickness of less than 2mm.
It has six protections for over-voltage, under-voltage, over-temperature, over-current, electrostatic, and foreign body detection. Lately, the charger also features a fan to keep the thermals down.
The OPPO 45W AirVOOC Wireless Charger with model number OAWV02 comes only in white color and it is priced at ¥329 ($50) in China. The product should be available for purchase in the coming days.
