Realme UltraDart 125W fast charging technology announced

On: July 16, 2020

Realme has announced its own 125W fast charging solution called the UltraDart today. The new announcement comes a day after OPPO announced its own 125W Flash Charge technology and 65W AirVOOC wireless fast charging. It appears that the UltraDart is the rebadged version of the 125W Flash Charge technology, which is expected that Realme is an OPPO offshoot.

Realme has announced that the 125W UltraDart fast charging technology can charge a 4,000mAh battery up to 33 percent in just 3 minutes. Just like OPPO’s 125W Flash Charge, Realme’s UltraDart tech can also completely charge a 4,000mAh battery in just 20 minutes.

To answer the concerns over thermal management, Realme has announced that the UltraDart fast charger will have multi-layer protection. The charger will ensure that the smartphone temperature is maintained under 40-degrees Celsius to enable safe charging speeds. OPPO made the same claim and announced that it has added 10 additional sensors apart from the existing three on phones and one on the charger. Realme seems to be using the same technology.

Realme claims that without the temperature control in place, the UltraDart fast charge technology can completely charge the 4,000mAh battery in just 13 minutes. As of now, the company has not announced which smartphone will be the first with UltraDart technology. But given the emphasis on 5G devices, we can expect it to debut on an upcoming 5G smartphone from the brand.
