iQOO shows off its 120W fast charger that can fill a 4,000 mAh battery in 15 minutes

31 July 2020
That's 5 minute faster than Oppo's 125W system, by the way. The first phone to support it will be unveiled in August.

Power negotiation is governed by standard specification, which itself has evolved over time. Which is why it's unclear which standard applies in this case, certainly IQOO cannot claim it's USB PD compliant, because it is not. Unless you have the manual with you that spells it out exactly, you're just making an assumption. Actually that's pretty good, considering you didn't even have a clue what I was talking about before

Did you not read the part where I implied that the charge controller will negotiate the power delivered by the charger? Do I have to spell out every painful detail for you? Is your ineptitude really that boundless? Anyway, I'm not arguing with a troll anymore.

TheWanderer, 15 Aug 2020Lol I still win. If you use a smartphone charger that can d... moreYou went from scoffing at voltage to regarding it for consideration, of course you win. Congratulations!

Now the "usually", under what standard? USB Power Delivery is currently the international standard, meant to be the universal scheme for charging over USB from low to high power, but only up to 100W. This new charger is no longer compliant with the USB PD standard.

Murphy's law says if something could go wrong, it will. If considering voltage means saving lives, someone has to do it.

cheapsk8, 15 Aug 2020I don't usually bother, unless the person doesn't... moreLol I still win. If you use a smartphone charger that can deilver 20 V it usually means that it can use other voltages too, so the battery that can only handle 5 V will use 5 V from the charger.

It very very cool, i support for that

Its just not about the product or money, its also about safety. They spend MILLIONS of DOLLARS just for R&D.

so like it or not, this is gonna be a succesful.
and other companies will follow.

125W is a very high power for a Smartphone battery.
Its overkill.

I've seen Vivo phones charging above 100% in many forums.
Also seen A vivo phone with 103% battery personally.
It maybe a sowtware glitch or really overcharged phone.Im not but clearly its not good thing.

So considering Safety of such high power on tiny Li+ batteries,it maybe dangerous.
Li+ batteries have come a long way in their evolution but its still a Li+ battery.So need to be extra careful.

But such focus on safety is not expected from Vivo because of their history.They are more concerned with bragging about their insanely fast charger.
Everyone is blindly following the trend of making bigger & bulkier charging bricks,This trend needs to be stopped.

Better to invest in Graphene batteries.
They will be cheaper,more efficient,faster charge,longer lasting.An ideal solution it seems.
