Chinese smart device company OPPO has launched a programme to expand the use of flash charging. The company has added new partners to expand its use, including FAW-Volkswagen, as well as Anker and NXP Semiconductors.

Each partner will work with proprietary technical designs developed by OPPO, which has applied for more than 2,950 flash charging patents worldwide, with over 1,400 already granted.

“The Flash Initiative reflects OPPO’s belief in human-centric technologies that make a difference in people’s everyday lives. And thanks to our new partners, our proprietary technologies can reach more people than ever before. This is a vital step in freeing consumers to use their devices however they want, no matter what they need to do or where in the world they are,” said Adler Feng, Senior Director of Intellectual Property at OPPO.

Technology certification laboratory CTTL (China Telecommunication Technology Laboratory) will test and certify any partner products made with VOOC flash charging technology. 

CTTL is one of China’s largest tech certification labs and has led the way in setting safety standards for fast charging technology. 

OPPO has also worked with CTTL to develop a technical paper that shares valuable information on flash charging technology, especially around device and consumer safety. This will be published shortly after MWC Shanghai.

OPPO’s VOOC technology launched in 2014, and there are now 30+ smartphone models that feature VOOC used by over 175 million users around the globe.
