The battle for ultimate phone fast charging supremacy has always been around, though never really on quite the scale as it is raging right now. Currently, the title is held by Oppo and the Reno Ace, with its 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 Flash Charge tech, capable of getting the 4,000 mAh from zero to full in 30 minutes. However, Xiaomi, among others, might already by on track to best that, potentially with the upcoming Mi 10 flagship line and specifically a 66W (11V, 6A) charger, it certified recently.

The latter Xiaomi 66W retail product, however, is said to actually be a variant of a whopping 100W wired charging tech the company demoed back in March. Apparently, 66W is all Xiaomi is currently ready to push to actual users. But with 100W already proven to theoretically work, the race is definitely on. It’s Oppo’s move now and by the looks of things, the current champion will be fighting for its title. Or at least that’s what we heard from the rumor mill in relation to the newly spotted SUPERDART trademark.
The latter seems to be getting patented by Realme at the moment, so we can’t really say for sure where we will see the tech pop-up first or under what marketing name. According to reliable industry insider Mukul Sharma, however, SUPERDART and the tech behind it are a direct response to Xiaomi’s 100W charging solution. And speaking of quick charging, we’re not entirely sure where vivo’s 120W Super FlashCharge, announced back in June fits into all of this and how far along it is in development.
We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on these developments, but in the meantime, you can share your thoughts on the recent rapid expanse in mobile charging. Do you like and/or appreciate it? Or do you have certain concerns and reservations?
