With all the apps and multimedia dominating people's phones, the batteries run out of juice rather quickly. Oppo has a quick charger to quickly solve the problem.

At this year's Mobile World Congress, Oppo - one of the larger Chinese smartphone manufacturers - unveiled its latest SuperVOOC quick-charging technology. By quick we mean extra quick - manufacturer claims the SuperVOOC will be able to charge a completely drained 2.500mAh battery to 100 percent in mere fifteen minutes. We know what you're thinking, but fear not, the new technology will work with standard micro-USB and USB Type-C cables. 

Reportedly, such incredible performance was achieved by setting up a proprietary system, where Oppo was in charge of developing and supervising everything from the the battery to charging hardware and control software.

In 2015, there were other technologies offering to quickly recharge your phone, but none of them was as quick as Oppo's. For example, Qualcomm's Quick Charge system claimed to recharge a dead phone to up to 80 percent in 35 minutes.

SuperVOOC was only tested by the manufacturer, so its promised performance remains questionable until technology is tested 'for real' by actual users. Until then, one doesn't have to be a prophet to forsee mobile phone charging times will only get shorter and shorter every year.
