Oppo Teases a 125W Fast Charging Tech – Coming in Two Days

Imagine having your phone charged from 0 - 100% within 15 minutes or less. Seems impossible doesn't it? Well, probably not. Oppo has been working on a tech that breaks the norm and surpasses the regular level of fast charging support we're currently used to. This is not the first time Oppo would be leaving the world in awe as regards its fast charging tech capabilities, as it has been introducing fast charging technologies for years - tech high enough and durable enough to function without causing harm to your device. At the moment phones come with fast charging tech with ratings ranging from 15W, 25W, 30W, 45W and so on, and with Oppo's 65W which is currently the highest in the tech industry. But as we have it, Oppo via twitter teased the announcement of the next level of its fast charging tech, rating at 125W - and it is to debut on the 15th of July to be precise.Tips point to the fact that the technology can charge a smartphone with a 4,000mAh battery in roughly 10 minutes. However, this high-speed technology could result in reduced battery lifespan. Last year, Oppo unveiled OPPO Reno Ace with the 65W fast charging support feature, but as of now, it is unclear if Oppo will be announcing its 125W tech alongside a smartphone.

6 Reasons Why Your Phone Charges Slow: What to do!

If you found your way here, chances are you're frustrated about your charging issues. We know,¬†we've been there - this is a problem that many smartphone users experience and it occurs on many smartphone brands, even the top guns. But not to worry, this article shares a list of charging issues and what to do about them. Faulty Cable If your Android smartphone is charging slow, the first thing you should check is your USB cable, which is usually the offender in most cases. When you consider all the harsh treatment it undergoes in your hands, you would understand why it decided to retire - USB cables are dropped, bent, coiled, stepped on, run over with chairs and all sorts, on a daily basis, and all these may affect the connector and flow of current to your phone. So how can you tell if your cable is at fault? Well, this is common knowledge, you either test it with another device or you borrow a cable and try it with your device. If your cable gives the same negative energy to another device or another cable charges your phone fine, then there you have it, it's time for a replacement. There's another case whereby your cable doesn't fit in your phone's port anymore, it just falls out dejectedly, you could look into the connector to see if it is broken or damaged, either way, getting a new cable would be the best option. Weak Power Source This is another possible reason why your phone may be charging slow, in fact some people may not realise that the power source of whatever their phone is plugged or connected to affects the rate at which their phone charges. For example if you're charging with a laptop or via wireless connections then your phone will charge very slow. The only way to get a normal charging speed is if you plug your charger directly into an outlet or a wall socket. But if you still get a sluggish charging despite that, then the problem could be with the wiring in your building, and at this time you would need to call an electrician. Incompatible or Faulty Chharger/Adapter If it isn't any of reasons above then face your adapter. Adapters get worn and damaged too, either from general abuse or power surge. Once again, test with other adapters to make sure. Another reason here may be that you're charging with a low rated charger whereas your phone…
