160W Ultra-fast Charger Powers OnePlus Flagship 10T Smartphone

Navitas Semiconductor announced that OnePlus has once again chosen GaNFast next-gen power ICs to ultra-fast-charge its new flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 10T.

The new OnePlus 10T features the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon® 8+ Gen 1 (4 nm) chipset, a 120 Hz FHD + AMOLED display screen, and 50 MP main camera, with advanced Cryo-Velocity Vapor cooling, all driven by a powerful 4,800 mAhr battery. The 150W-capable SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition delivers up to a day’s power after just 10 minutes of charging, with a full charge – from 1-100% – taking only 19 minutes. 

New York was the focus for the 10T’s debut, with a special launch event at the famous Gotham Hall, and a Navitas-OnePlus co-operative promotion on the Nasdaq Tower in Times Square.

GaNFast ICs integrate GaN power with drive, control, protection and sensing to enable 3x faster charging with up to 40% energy savings in only half the size and weight of legacy silicon solutions. Using an NV6125 GaN IC for the high-frequency boost PFC, followed by a high-frequency QR flyback converter, the 160 W charger measures just 58 x 57 x 30 mm (99 cc) with power density over 1.6W/cc.

“Both OnePlus and Navitas focus on more speed and more power with cool operation,” said Mr. David Carroll, Navitas’ senior vice-president of world-side sales. “OnePlus is a very innovative company and appreciates the leading-edge efficiency, high quality, and world-leading environmental-benefits of GaNFast power ICs, as each one shipped saves 4 kg of CO2 vs. legacy silicon chips.”
