OPPO announced a new technology that will first be seen in the OPPO Find X5 Pro. This new technology is called Battery Health Engine, and it's designed to increase the overall lifespan and health of your phone's battery. The BHE is a self-developed chip that is designed to work in combination with the new 150W SUPERVOOC flash charger.

So what does the BHE actually do? Traditional charging of your phone causes your battery to degrade over time. This results in shorter battery life as your usage continues. The goal of BHE is to slow that process down as much as possible. Using OPPO's self-developed BHE chip, the OPPO Find X5 Pro can maintain 80% of its original capacity after as many as 1,600 charge cycles. To put this into perspective, this is double the current industry norm.


The Technology Behind the Battery Health Engine​

The BHE chip takes advantage of two specific technologies which include Smart Battery Health Algorithm and Battery Healing Technology. The combination of these features helps improve battery health, safety, and performance by optimizing the hardware and software.

Smart Battery Health Algorithm has the ability to track real-time electric potential across the negative electrodes within the battery. Using this information, it will dynamically adjust the charging currency within a reasonable range, resulting in the minimization of the occurrence of dead lithium. It can do this while maintaining the maximum charging current. This helps ensure a prolonged battery lifespan and faster-charging speeds.


Battery Healing Technology extends the battery life from the inner system of the battery. With the ability to improve the electrolyte formula, the electrodes are constantly being repaired while the battery goes through its normal charge and discharge cycles. This forms a more stable and durable solid electrolyte interface (SEI) that always stays in a perfect state in real-time. This ultimately causes a reduction of the wear and tear of the positive and negative electrodes of the battery. you'll end up with a healthier and
longer-lasting battery.

So are you looking forward to BHE in new phones? Would a longer battery life allow you to keep your device for longer?
