OPPO’s Battery Health Engine
The Battery Health Engine, an exceptional battery health solution developed by OPPO over a meticulous three-year period, emerges as a remarkable breakthrough. It effectively addresses battery-related issues associated with depleted lithium, significantly mitigating the decline in battery capacity over time. It also prolongs battery life and combats the mounting issue of electronic waste resulting from the frequent discarding of smartphone batteries.
Powered by OPPO’s specialized battery management chip, the ingenious Smart Battery Health Algorithm, and Battery Healing Technology, the Battery Health Engine ensures that OPPO smartphones can maintain up to 80% of their original battery capacity even after an impressive 1,600 charge-discharge cycles, far surpassing the industry standard. Since its initial introduction in 2022, the Battery Health Engine has made its mark on over ten OPPO smartphone models, including the highly acclaimed OPPO Find X5 series. The Engine not only enhances user experiences but also fosters significant societal impact through its steadfast commitment to sustainability.
The illustrious Fast Company, a renowned business media outlet, also recognized OPPO’s commitment to innovation underlying the Battery Health Engine and its pivotal role in spearheading sustainability in the smartphone industry. Consequently, OPPO earned the distinction of being named one of the 10 Most Innovative Asia-Pacific Companies in 2023, solidifying its position as a pioneering force in the realm of sustainability-driven advancements.
OPPO’s unyielding dedication to sustainability extends deeply into the very core of its product design and business operations.
