200 W and 10 minutes to fully charge: the ingredients of Vivo’s new fast charge

Fast charging is one step away from being instant, at least when it comes to Vivo’s new trailer: with its new 200W system the manufacturer can fully charge the battery of its latest mobile, the iQOO 10 Pro, in just ten minutes. For now, this hyper-fast cargo will stay in China.

With the speeds reached by today’s most powerful mobiles, not only does power circulate so quickly: battery discharge also occurs at high rate. And it happens in the same way on the contrary: manufacturers are putting all their efforts into making fast charging really fast. If the half hour to fill a battery was already impressive, imagine if that time was reduced to ten minutes.

Record speed, capital power

The iQOO 10 Pro charging

As reported by Vivo, the manufacturer is the first to offer fast charging at 200 W in a commercial mobile. The phone in question is part of the iQOO brand, specializing in phones gaming and that is only found in Asia. The iQOO 10 Pro, as the device is called, starts with heart-stopping numbers throughout its table of features.

Leaving aside the phone, which will not leave China, what is most striking is the aforementioned 200 W fast charge. Xiaomi already presented something similar in 2021, but it has not yet been included in commercial sludge. Vivo has stolen the limelight with its iQOO 10 Pro.

As detailed by Vivo, the fast charge included in the latest phone can revive your battery from 0 to 100% in ten minutes. Its included charger offers 200 W of power, maintains the security and stability of both the phone and the charger, and includes a charging chip that manages the transfer of energy to optimize times depending on capacity.

The iQOO 10 Pro that debuts the technology includes a double 4,700 mAh battery (each of the batteries offers 2,350 mAh). 200W charger has 10V 10A output; which allows the charging pump to manage the flow to recharge the two batteries simultaneously and in record time. Vivo references the inclusion of a Gallium Nitride (GaN) mini charging adapter.

Charge 200W

The mobile will remain far from our borders, since it will not leave China. Even so, Vivo will surely transfer its 200W super-fast charging technology to its international mobiles: It would not be surprising if the next generation X showed off such speeds. We will see if they really get the figures that the brand promises.
