Vivo demonstrates its new supercharger of 120W; Watch video

Chinese manufacturer Vivo gave a small demonstration of its new technology for fast loading. In a video posted today (20), the company showed off its 120W supercharger, which claims to be able to fully charge a 4,000 mAh battery - that is, from 0% to 100% - in just 13 minutes.

A teaser for Vivo's Super FlashCharge was posted on the Chinese social network Weibo and replicated by various channels around the world. In it, you can see a phone being stocked from 10% to 14% in impressive 16 seconds. Earlier this year, Xiaomi, in turn, revealed its monstrous 100W recharge technology supposedly capable of completing a 4,000 mAh battery in 17 minutes. The Oppo, a OnePlus and the Huawei are also other players who are continuously working on solutions for superfast charging.

One of the biggest challenges with this fast charging level is not to overcharge the battery. Although the USB-C already supports 100W of power consumption, pumping that amount of power into a small battery at one time can be dangerous. That's why some phones are splitting their batteries into separate cells, which can be charged faster and without generating as much heat.

Vivo, however, does not confirm the commercial launch of this equipment for its smartphones in the near future.
