The OnePlus 10R carries our fastest ever charging technology − 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition. This is also the fastest ever charging seen on a phone in Kenya and in most other regions around the world. Speed, however, is only part of the equation. Keep on reading to find out more.
With 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition, users can charge the OnePlus 10Rs 4,500 mAh battery from 1-70% in just 10 minutes. That’s a full day of content consumption in half the time it takes to watch one episode of your favorite sitcom. What’s more, you can get from 1-100% in an impressive 17 minutes with the device’s Rapid Charging Mode (enabled in the device’s battery settings) that unleashes the full potential of 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition charging on the OnePlus 10R. One of our goals as a brand has always been to push ourselves with every iteration of our products and enable users to do more with their smartphones – 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition is a testament to that goal.
150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition’s maximum power of 20V/7.5A is enabled by a 160W charging brick and a USB-C to USB-C cable – both are included in the OnePlus 10R’s retail box. Beyond SUPERVOOC charging protocols, the 160W charger also supports PPS and PD charging protocols – meaning it can also rapidly charge laptops, tablets, and mobile gaming consoles.
Now, you’re probably wondering – does charging at such high speeds affect battery health?
Even at high charging speeds, battery health remains a priority. 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition comes equipped with a feature aptly named the Battery Health Engine that powers two key technologies designed to extend the lifespan and preserve the capacity of, the OnePlus 10R’s battery – the Smart Battery Health Algorithm and Battery Healing Technology. Combined, these technologies will ensure the battery of the OnePlus 10R with 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition can retain 80% of its original capacity after 1,600 charge cycles.
The Smart Battery Health Algorithm can track and control the maximum charging current and ensure it stays within a safe range to reduce the probability of dead lithium cells, thereby extending the battery’s lifespan significantly.
Battery Healing Technology on the OnePlus 10R with 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition allows electrodes to be continuously repaired during charging cycles, reducing the damage done to anodes and cathodes in the device’s battery to preserve its capacity.
We didn’t stop there – the OnePlus 10R also supports a series of improved charging management systems that, combined, improve charging efficiency and safety while reducing heat emitted. First up, the OnePlus 10R comes with a Dual Charge Pump, which means there are two pumps with a 75W capacity used to charge the device, rather than having a single pump with a 150W capacity. This is done to allow the OnePlus 10R to charge faster with reduced heat dissipation, greater efficiency, and enhanced safety.
Additionally, the OnePlus 10R is equipped with a VFC trickle charging optimization algorithm which improves the charging efficiency of the last 10% of the OnePlus 10R’s battery. The VFC trickle charging optimization algorithm can adjust the current and voltage of a charge to the accuracy of 100 mA and 10 mV to improve charging efficiency and reduce heat. In simple terms, the OnePlus 10R can anticipate when the user is going to unplug their phone and ensure its battery spends less time at 100% as it can adjust current and voltage faster.
Rounding out the OnePlus 10R and 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition’s intelligent charging management is a Customized Smart Charging Chip that manages charging on the device and guarantees charging safety, by recognizing the input current and voltage, then delivering an adaptable combination to the battery.
Now, let’s dig a little deeper into safety…
All variants of the OnePlus 10R are equipped with a total of 13 temperature sensors − an increase from the 10 temperature sensors present in previous OnePlus devices − that work to detect the device’s charging temperature in real-time. This is to ensure the OnePlus 10R delivers a fast-charging experience that is also safe. These 13 temperature sensors are located within the phone’s battery system. You don’t have to take our word for it when it comes to safety. The OnePlus 10R’s 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition is TÜV Rheinland certified for safe fast charging, meaning it is certified by a globally recognized body to deliver safe fast charging.
Moving deeper, all variants of the OnePlus 10R support a new 128-bit encryption algorithm that recognizes official SUPERVOOC charging cables to ensure charging safety. This is to ensure that super-fast charging speeds are only unlocked with cables that are designed to deliver these charging speeds.
One OnePlus 10R model – in Sierra Black with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage – supports 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition and has a 4,500 mAh battery. All other models of the OnePlus 10R support 80W SUPERVOOC and have a 5,000 mAh battery. 80W SUPERVOOC can charge the OnePlus 10R’s 5,000mAh battery from 1-100% in 32 minutes. It also features the same Customized Smart Charging Chip as the Endurance Edition version. 80W SUPERVOOC is enabled by an 80W SUPERVOOC charging brick and a USB-A to USB-C cable – both of these are included in the OnePlus 10R retail box.
Whether you’re using the OnePlus 10R with a 4,500 mAh battery or a 5,000 mAh battery, we’ve worked to ensure both will last an entire day of normal usage on a single charge. This is made possible by the combination of a large battery with the powerful, energy-efficient MediaTek Dimensity 8100-MAX chipset, and a display that can adjust its refresh rate between 120 Hz, 90 Hz, and 60 Hz depending on the type of content being consumed.
In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re confident the strides forward we’ve made with charging on the OnePlus 10R will change the way you use the device. Our goal is for you to spend less time waiting for your phone to charge, and more time using it for the things you love.
We can’t wait for you to experience the OnePlus 10R.
