Vivo has recently introduced the new 120W fast charging technology at the MWC in Shanghai, China. The new fast-charging technology has a title: “Vivo Super FlashCharge 120W”. As per Vivo, it is the fastest charging technology in the world. In March 2019, Xiaomi announced the 100W fast charging technology but, for the moment, has not announced any phone that supports this technology.
For its part, Vivo the 44W fast charging technology with the Vivo iQOO smartphone, which is the company’s fastest charging technology to date. Now, the new Super FlashCharge technology uses a new charge pump technology with a maximum charging power of 120W (20V/6A). This is by far the highest charging technology.
Vivo’s Super Fast claims
According to the company, the Super FlashCharge technology is insanely fast. It can charge a smartphone with a 4000mAh battery from 0% to 50% in just 5 minutes. Moreover, it takes a total of only 13 minutes to reach 100% charge.
Vivo Super FlashCharge 120W only works when the device is charged with the original adapter and the type-C USB cable.
Competitor for OPPO’s VOOC and OnePlus’s Warp Charge
Like the OPPO VOOC Charge and the OnePlus Warp Charge, Vivo also replaces the voltage reduction circuit with the MCU (Micro Controller Unit). The MCU sits inside the charging adapter and protects the device from overloading. This also solves the problem of temperature rise that commonly occurs while charging any device.
Battery Management System
In terms of security, the Battery Management System (BMS) will ensure that the battery’s charging capabilities maintain balance to offer a long battery life.
