There's nothing more frustrating than running out of phone battery – except, perhaps, having to wait hours for it to charge up again. But Chinese phone manufacturer Oppo has just announced an exciting new charging technology that could seriously reduce how long you'll have to spend waiting by a plug socket. 

The company has just announced its new 125w Flash Charge system, which it claims can charge a large smartphone battery in just 20 minutes – in comparison, the iPhone 11 takes over 3 hours to reach 100%. While better battery life would obviously improve any smartphone (even our best camera phones), wildly reduced charging times could be just as useful for creatives on the go.
