Vivo plays with the fastest charging technology, capable of fully charging a 4,000mAh battery in 13 minutes


The fast-loading race is approaching another company causing an even faster solution. Taunting being the key word here, since the technology is not yet available on any device.

Vivo today gave us a glimpse of its new Super FlashCharge of 120W, which claims to be able to fully charge a battery of 4,000mAh – that is, from 0% to 100% – in just 13 minutes. You read it right – 4,000mAh, 0 to 100 in 13 minutes.

A teaser for Vivo's Super FlashCharge was posted earlier today on the Weibo Chinese blog site, showing a phone being charged from 10% to 14% in about 16 seconds. This is very, very impressive indeed, although it is far from being a full charge cycle. It seems like we'll have to wait a little longer until we see this technology on a mass-produced phone, as is the case with super-fast charging solutions from other companies.

Video teaser posted by Vivo, showing its new technology of fast loading of 120W. The phone in the video is being charged from 10% to 14% in the period of about 16 seconds.

Earlier this year, Xiaomi unveiled its monstrous 100W recharging technology supposedly capable of completing a 4,000mAh battery in 17 minutes with OPPO, OnePlus and Huawei being some of the other major players that are continually working on loading super fast solutions.

One of the biggest challenges with this fast charging level is not to overcharge the battery. Although the USB Type-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.

We do not have any official confirmation about Vivo's Super FlashCharge operation, but it probably uses a two-cell configuration to achieve the 13-minute load cycle under laboratory conditions.
