Wireless charging speeds are not what they used to be. Back in 2009, Palm Pre gave us the first time with wireless charging on the owner of the Touch Stone charger and a special cover. Soon after the Qi wireless industry standard appeared, although the charge increased from only 5W and then expanded to 10W and finally 15W.
There are faster alternatives than Oppo’s AirVOOC 50W Wireless Flash Charger that we have today for testing. As the name suggests this wireless charger supports up to 50W speed for select Oppo and OnePlus devices. We already tested vivo’s 50W Wireless Flash Charger a while back which managed to charge the vivo X80 Pro from 0-100% in 58 minutes and now we are testing out Oppo’s 50W wireless charger with the Oppo Find X5 Pro which is one of the few devices that can charge wirelessly at 50W speed.
Oppo claims that a 0-50% charge will take just 22 minutes and a full charge should be completed in 47 minutes – 7 more than it did with the 80W SuperVOOC wired charging adapter that comes with the phone. We put this application to the test and these are our findings.
Before you can wirelessly charge at 50W speed, you will need a 65W PD charger (or higher) plugged into the AirVOOC 50W Wireless Flash charger to achieve fast charging. Luckily our Oppo Find X5 Pro comes with an 80W SuperVOOC power adapter (20V / 4A) and the required USB-A to USB-C cable. For use, Find X5 Pro manages the charge 0-40% in 12 minutes and completes 0-100% in 40 minutes exactly with its box 80W charger.
The 50W AirVOOC wireless charger can also adjust the charging rate according to the device it is charging so you can charge the iPhone 13 at 7.5W speed or one of the Galaxy S22 series phones at 15W speed.
So what does the AirVOOC 50W wireless charger come with? Just a USB-A to USB-C cable. You don’t get a 65W SuperVOOC power adapter so you’ll have to supply your own brick.
AirVOOC 50W adopts dual wireless coil design which allows for more sensitivity. The mattress also comes with a 3,600 RPM fan to keep the temperature down and has ducts under the phone that blow air to keep the heat in check. You can place the phone upright and in landscape mode when charging and you can have a case on the phone as long as the case does not exceed 2 mm thick.
The charger also comes with a variety of safety measures including overvoltage and overcurrent protection, a temperature sensor, anti-electrostatic, a low voltage sensor and a foreign object – which can detect objects such as coin and prevent payment.
Oppo has also added a silent charging mode that allows you to turn off the fan at specific times of the day or night. Oppo Find X5 Pro has a special section in the battery menu where you can change the silent charging mode. The charger comes with a set of rubber feet that raise it 3mm above the ground to allow for better airflow.
AirVOOC 50W weighs 180 grams. Oppo’s 80W SuperVOOC charge brick by 120 grams while the cable is another 30 grams making a total of three AirVOOC 50W charger set 330 grams.
And now the results.
In our test with the Oppo Find X5 Pro we measured 53 minutes for 1-100% charge with AirVOOC 50W Wireless Flash Charger. That’s 6 minutes more than Oppo’s claimed 47 minutes although we have to measure in room temperature as a significant change. Find the X5 Pro up to 13% charge after only 5 minutes on the charger and is sitting at 50% after 23 minutes, which is only a minute away from what Oppo claims.
Oppo’s 80W wired SuperVOOC charger 40 minutes for the whole 1-100% charge is about 53 minutes from the AirVOOC charger still happy to think about the additional heat from wireless charging. A quick comparison with the vivo X80 Pro and its 50W Wireless Flash Charger shows that the Oppo X5 Pro completes a full charge 5 minutes faster while boasting a larger 5,000 mAh battery compared to the X80 Pro’s 4,700 mAh cell.
AirVOOC 50W Wireless Flash Charger temperatures during testing and Oppo Find X5 Pro after being charged to 100%
The temperature of both the charger and our Oppo Find X5 Pro test room remained cool and did not go above the 33°C threshold at any point during our tests. When we charge the phone we immediately measure how hot it is and it is just below 32°C.

We also had the opportunity to test out the SuperVOOC 80W car charger that promises the same charging time as the SuperVOOC 80W power adapter that comes with the Oppo Find X5 Pro. That is useful because of the difference between the two chargers.
The 80W car charger is USB PD 3.0 compatible and has a design with USB-C and USB-A ports and an LED charging indicator. Oppo is again using a 6-layer protection like AirVOOC wireless charger. It is important to note that you need to use the original Oppo USB-A to USB-C cable (the one that comes with the Find X5 Pro) to reach the claimed 80W (11V @ 7.3A ) the maximum.
Charging through the USB-C port will give you up to 30W speed (11V @ 3A) on a USB PD-compatible device. You can also charge two independent devices on two ports simultaneously although the maximum will be limited to 33W on the USB-A port and 30W on the USB-C connection. With all the information out of the way let’s see what Oppo’s car charger manages with our Find X5 Pro.
The first 5 minutes of the car charger increased the Find X5 Pro up to 25% and the phone up to 43% charge after 10 minutes. The battery reached 70% charge after 20 minutes and sat at 92% after 30 minutes. Then it takes another 10 minutes to reach 100%.
All 1-100% value taken 40 minutes which is the same thing we get with the SuperVOOC 80W bundled charger on the Find X5 Pro. The car charger has the advantage of being only 40 grams light and this is by far the fastest car charger we have tested to date. We didn’t notice any excessive heat coming from the charger during our testing which is another plus.

For comparison, we have added the three chargers used in this test in the chart below to help back up our findings. We can see both the 80W SuperVOOC wall charger (red) and the 80W SuperVOOC car charger (yellow) are neck and neck in terms of speed although the smaller car charger holds the advantage for most of the tests. On the other end, we can see the 50W AirVOOC Wireless Flash Charger (blue) is a bit slow even though it is still nice to see it hanging with other solutions.
Oppo’s AirVOOC 50W wireless charger and 80W SuperVOOC car charger are two of the fastest chargers in their category and bring blazing-fast top-up times. AirVOOC 50W works 1-100% charger in only 53 minutes while the small 80W SuperVOOC car charger manages the same thing 40 minutes – on par with the larger 80W SuperVOOC charging brick that comes with the Find X5 Pro.
At € 78 for the AirVOOC 50W wireless charger and € 40 for the 80W SuperVOOC car charger, Oppo really pays the price for the additional power of charging at a fast speed. Most users will be better off with a regular Qi wireless charger and a convenient car charger for daily needs.
Oppo and OnePlus owners who constantly need extra fast charging can benefit from the fact that the AirVOOC 50W wireless charger and the SuperVOOC 80W car charger are hands-down the best solutions for their special equipment and can forget about ever charging with a regular charger. at home or going.
