Battery with 65W SuperDart Charge
The realme 7 Pro is equipped with a 4,500mAh battery featuring a 65W SuperDart Charge. Despite the slightly lower battery capacity compared to some midrange devices adopting the 5,000mAh standard, the realme 7 Pro compensates with its rapid charging capabilities.

  • Flash charge condition identification protection
  • Interface overload protection
  • Overcurrent protection and voltage overload protection
  • Battery fuse protection
