Chinese phone brand OPPO comes with a series of magnetic wireless chargers under the name MagVOOC. The range consists of a standard 40W, a 20W charging disk and a 20W wireless power bank. OPPO also shows “Air Freight”: short-distance charging without Qi.
MagVOOC chargers wirelessly charge phones via Qi charging technology and are equipped with a magnet attached to the phone. OPPO’s 40W charging standard charges the OPPO Ace 2 with a 4,000mAh battery in 56 minutes, OPPO promises. Old phones charge 30W with the stand. It is not known if they need an additional supplement for this.
In addition to the standard, OPPO comes with a 20W circular charging dial, which is very similar to Apple’s MagSafe charger and Realme’s 15W MagDart charger. This drive charges OPPO phones at 20W and can charge other Qi-enabled devices at 10W while protecting the battery for over/low capacity and overheating.
OPPO’s third MagVOOC accessory is a 4,500mAh power bank that magnetically attaches to the back of the phone. The power bank supports Qi wireless charging up to 20W and also has a USB-C port for 10W wired charging. OPPO says that it takes two hours to fully charge the power bank. OPPO showed the three chargers During Smart China Expo 2021 in Shenzhen.
At the Shenzhen exhibition, OPPO also demonstrated the concept of “true wireless charging”, XDA Developers writes. OPPO calls on the technology OPPO Air and wirelessly charges the batteries over a short distance with a maximum of 7.5W. For this, the device does not have to rest completely on the charger, like a Qi charger, but can also be placed diagonally on it or even next to it. OPPO does not say when this technology should be on the market. Also, it has not yet revealed the price and availability of the MagVOOC chargers.
It is not too surprising that OPPO launches a magnetic wireless charger after Realme at the beginning of this month Announced a series of magnetic accessories To counter Apple’s MagSafe series. Realme and OPPO are both part of the Chinese electronics brand BBK. In addition to OPPO and Realme, Vivo, OnePlus and iQOO are also part of BBK.
