At the European launch event for the Oppo Reno8 series, Billy Zhang, Oppo’s vice president of overseas sales and service, said that next year the company will remove the chargers from the retail packaging. retail of “several products”. However, the VP did not specify which devices will benefit from the lighter packaging. Here is the full quote:

“We will take the charger out of the box next year for several products. We have a plan. It is not so easy for consumers to have access to [SuperVOOC chargers], so we have to keep it in the box. However, as we grow our business, we seek to take the chargers out of the box and into the store so that our users can buy the chargers and continue to use them even when they upgrade their devices.

Many of Oppo’s competitors have already cut the charger out of the box, but they typically use USB Power Delivery, so there’s a wide variety of proprietary and third-party chargers you can use. Also, companies like Apple and Samsung in particular don’t really push the envelope when it comes to charging speeds, so a 45W or even 20W charger can be used with multiple generations of their phones and you won’t miss a big deal. -thing.

However, VOOC is proprietary and Oppo likes to increase the power level quite often, which requires a new charger. But for now, we’ll take them at their word – they have a plan and if that plan involves dropping the charger from entry-level and mid-range phones, that’s probably fine.

For example, the Reno8 and Reno8 Pro support 80W SuperVOOC and that should be enough for the foreseeable future. Additionally, Oppo phones support USB Power Delivery, albeit at a lower power level than the VOOC implementation (eg Reno8 duo only PD at 18W). That could change, of course. For reference, an 80W SuperVOOC charger sells for £40.
