OPPO’s new ad shares the frustration of a slow charging battery, the Find 7 has no such problems
Smartphones have always been slave to their designers, and thus how efficiently they can use the juice provided by the battery on board. On the flip side of that, arrangement, the same holds true for what it takes to recharge that battery.

Some phones take longer to charge than others. It may be due to the size of the battery, or the capacity of the charging plug, or how the hardware of the device is built. Regardless, when you want your phone recharged, waiting for it is akin to the old adage, “a watched pot never boils.”

OPPO knows this, and so chose to share the easily relatable experience of “waiting.” Now, some of you might be thinking, “just bring the charger with you” or “you can use the phone while charging,” we get it, just go with it.

For purposes of this ad, the point is to make it known how fast OPPO’s new flagship, the Find 7, can recharge from zero-to-75% in just 30 minutes. In fact, a five minute charge will give you two hours of talk time. A full charge can be had in just 70 minutes. OPPO claims overall charging times are 4 times faster than other conventional chargers.

All that is thanks to the VOOC fast charging system that is incorporated with the new Find 7. As you might imagine, such a transfer of energy generates heat. The Find 7 has several layers of thermal protective coating to prevent overheating while charging.

That is just one feature of the many attractive attributes of the new Find 7, which we are still anxiously awaiting an announcement as to when it will be released to the masses.

My S5 goes from 1-80% in about an hour but this is impressive. Kudos to OPPO for this kind of tech.

Very impressive that not only is the Find 7's battery slightly larger capacity, but it charges nearly twice as fast as your device. Hope this makes it to all smartphones soon enough.

Same with my Note 3 with the Samsung charger. Charges to 100% in about 2 hours. That's fine by me compared to my old HTC DNA which took about 5-6 hours to charge to full.

This kind of advertising will help companies like Oppo with better specs but lower prices become popular.
Kudos Oppo!

Wow very impressive, wish my phone would charge that fast. The lockscreen at the end of the ad looked just like WP, the date and time in the same place.

I'm mad I did not continue to wait for this and instead took the plunge for a Note 3...

bad charger coupled with a bad battery. If he is using a charger that is like .5a or .75a it will charge very slow. A big culprit of the $2 chargers.

If you charge it with 1.5a or 2.5a chargers it will take 1.5-2hrs. Mine on a 2.25a tablet charger takes just one hour.

You know that in the end its not the actual speed of charging, right ?
Yeah it really recharges fast 20-100% in 1h -> check in YouTube, but I think this ad is little bit exaggerated.

Got my find 7 last week. The display is so addictive. Damn good it is. The only problem im facing is the horrible battery drain issue. Other than that it is one heck of a device.
