DUBAIWATER, November 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — According to OPPO data SUPERVOOC™ lab, after a year of use, most smartphone batteries have only 90% of their original capacity; and after two years, it drops to 80%. That’s without considering heavy smartphone use, like running multiple apps at the same time or playing graphics-intensive online games. For these users, it is not uncommon to have to replace the battery often.
OPPO has spent more than three years conducting fundamental research on lithium-ion batteries, resulting in a system-level battery health optimization solution called OPPO Battery Health Engine (BHE). This technology can maintain a battery at over 80% of its original capacity after up to 1,600 charge cycles, double the current industry average of 800 cycles, making batteries equipped with the ‘OPPO BHE, the longest battery life in the world. Not only does this help with daily battery maintenance, but it also helps reduce pollution and long-term environmental damage caused by discarded lithium batteries.
Why do batteries lose their ability to store charge over time?
Inside a lithium-ion battery, lithium ions move from the positive electrode to the negative electrode when the battery is charging, through a process known as electrolytic conduction. When the battery is discharged, the reverse process occurs.
The amount of charge that can move between the electrodes during either of these processes depends on the number of active lithium ions present in the battery. Unfortunately, it is possible for active lithium ions to become inactive if subjected to excessive current or overcharging, causing the battery’s capacity to drop.
However, measuring this poses another daunting challenge. Smartphone batteries are like a black box: while we can measure the potential between the positive and negative electrodes, it is impossible to measure the potential of a single electrode without adding another “third” electrode to the battery.
OPPO’s Smart Battery Health algorithm solves the problem ‘Black Box‘ mystery of lithium-ion batteries
OPPO came across Professor’s search Gregory offer, specializing in lithium battery research at Imperial College London. Following discussions with Professor Offer and after three years of testing and modification, OPPO has developed an accurate battery model capable of real-time tracking of the negative electrode potential without adding another third electrode. Through these measurements, OPPO is able to precisely control parameters such as battery charging speed and temperature to deliver the best balance between performance and longevity.
This innovative battery model, named Smart Battery Health Algorithm, is one of the two technologies that make up the OPPO BHE. Through precise simulation, OPPO has solved one of the industry’s biggest mysteries by measuring the negative electrode potential of lithium-ion batteries, enabling precise control of charging current through real-time monitoring. smartphone battery without sacrificing charging speeds.
Hardware protection for battery life
Besides the Smart Battery Health algorithm, the other breakthrough innovation found in the OPPO BHE is Battery Healing Technology, which helps preserve battery life by altering the phone’s internal battery chemistry from the Reno8 series.
As lithium-ion batteries are charged and discharged, the degradation of electrolyte compounds under electrical potential results in the formation of a thin protective layer called the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) on the electrode, improving performance and preventing the electrode material from being damaged by the electrolyte molecules.
OPPO’s Battery Healing Technology further improves electrode performance and helps to permanently repair SEI during charging and discharging by optimizing the electrolyte formula.
Hassle-free and easy-to-use charging experiences on the Reno8 series phone
Reno8 series owners don’t just benefit from the longer battery life enabled by the new BHE. With 80W SUPERVOOC™ charging technology, Reno8 Pro’s 4500mAh battery can be charged to 50% in just 11 minutes and 100% in just 31 minutes with built-in 5-layer charging protection for safe charging. TÜV Rheinland tests show that even a 5-minute charge is enough for two hours of play.
High efficiency, high power SUPERVOOC™ to the all-new Battery Health Engine, OPPO has always led the way in battery and charging technology. With more innovative charging solutions to come, OPPO will continue to explore new ways to bring safe, efficient, and easy-to-use charging experiences to more users.
DXOMARK Gold Battery Label
OPPO’s Reno8 5G recently obtained the 2022 GOLD BATTERY label from DXOMARK. DXOMARK, the world’s leading quality assessment lab, recognized the battery’s excellent charging performance, outstanding efficiency, and decent battery life overall. Reno8 5G received a total score of 141, placing it on the podium of the global ranking.
