Oppo Find X – the Lamborghini Edition
Here comes the ultra-premium version of the Oppo Find X – the Lamborghini Edition. It’s essentially a Find X Super Flash Edition. But, it has a carbon fiber and Lamborghini-branded back, wireless headphones in the box, a few Lamborghini themes, and 512GB internal memory. More importantly, both special editions boast the mobile world’s fastest charging technology called SuperVOOC – a successor to the popular VOOC charging by Oppo. The SuperVOOC standard will also be present on the Oppo R17 pro handset once it’s released.
But is the new SuperVOOC standard really so great? Interestingly, the Oppo Find X – the Lamborghini Edition has a 3,400 mAh battery and can go from 0 to 100% in just 35 minutes, thanks to a charger going as high as 50W. While it may sound crazy, it has been tested and confirmed that the charger really does fill up a flat battery in just 35 minutes. Let’s have a glimpse of the graph for greater clarity of Oppo Find X – the Lamborghini Edition.
Of course, so as to keep your battery healthy, the last few percentages are slower to fill up. Otherwise, it would degrade the cells faster over time. So in a real world scenario, if you need to charge the phone quickly on the go, the phone would have to spend just a few minutes on the brick to go between 20 and 80%. To top it off, the trickle charge kicks in by lowering the voltage and consequently reducing the heat generation for the last mile.
We will soon get back to you with detailed stats about how the charger handles the wattage during the whole 35-minute charging period . As of now, it’s enough to let you know that the 10V/5A charger is every bit as fast as Oppo promises.
But how can Oppo charge the phone at such a high voltage without producing too much heat in the battery? Even some laptop chargers cap at 40W . This is a small battery, crammed inside the phone. Isn’t this an incredible feature ?
Just like the standard VOOC charging technology, the electric conversion happens inside the charging brick, which is the main source of heat. Also, it works at 5V rather than the higher voltages of Quick Charge or Power Delivery so it generates lesser heat.
As another stunning feature of this Super VOOC approach is that it doesn’t take more time for the phone to charge while you are using it for watching videos, web browsing and even gaming – it keeps the same pace as if the screen were turned off.
So how about comparing it to the other competing charging technologies available? Well, just for giggles let’s put it against the iPhone XS Max . After all the 512GB Lamborghini Edition and Apple’s latest flagship with the same storage cost nearabout same. Also, we’ve thrown the OnePlus 6 into the race, since it adopts the so-called Dash charging technology. Therefore,it’s practically identical to Oppo’s VOOC charge. It would be amazing to see how SuperVOOC stacks up against the previous generation. Of course, we can’t miss adding the other competing fast charging technologies like Huawei’s SuperCharge, Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3 (since Quick Charge 4+ chargers aren’t available yet) and the Power Delivery over USB-C, that’s currently used by Google Pixel phones.

5. Xiaomi Mi 8 (3,400 mAh)44
6. Google Pixel 2 XL (3,520 mAh)35
7. Apple iPhone XS Max (3,174 mAh)18
As you can see from the graph, the new SuperVOOC technology wins the competition. Consequently, it appears out on top of the pack. The iPhone XS Max puts in an embarrassing performance, but then we knew what to expect from a 5W charger. If one charges the iPhone wirelessly using a fast wireless charger, you will get around 7.5W of output. Henceforth,it would be faster than the wired charger included in the box.
