OPPO phone charger will not come in the box for some models from next year

VOOC is OPPO’s proprietary charging solution and they introduce new fast charging solutions every now and then and it requires new charging adapters to take advantage of the speeds. So it remains to be seen whether the elimination of chargers will be limited to entry-level and mid-range phones or even extend to flagships.

OPPO charger in the box

OPPO mentioned that it will remove the charger in the box of several products starting next year. The company’s executives haven’t mentioned which segment of phones will not have the charging adapters in the box.

In a statement, the company said “We will take the charger out of the box in the next year for several products. We have a plan. It’s not that easy for consumers to get access to [SuperVOOC chargers], so we have to keep it in the box. However, as we are expanding our business operations, we are looking to take chargers out of the box and put them in the store so that our users are able to buy the chargers and continue using them even when they upgrade their devices.”

This is big news coming from OPPO considering the brand has always talked big about its fast charging solution and how it is always faster than Samsung Apple, which traditionally offered a maximum speed of 45W or 20W speeds.

The recently launched Reno 8 and Reno 8 Pro support 80W SuperVOOC and this should be enough to power the phones in the near future. OPPO phones do support USB Power Delivery, although at a lower power level than the VOOC implementation, so users can use many third-party charging adapters that are available on the market.
