Charging Time (USB Cables and AC)

    So the stock charger with the oneplus (uk) supports 2.1amps (21000mA) so when i charge my phone i should be getting a near 2amp charging current but the charging speed is only 960mA but it should be getting near that 2000mA range for a fast charge because both the charger and oneplus support thoes amps.

    So I was wondering why is this happening (such a low charging speed) and what can I do to fix it like a better charging cable to support the higher amps. I have also tried this test at all battery percentages and I am using stock charger + cable and AC charging.

    It would be interesting to know why that is happening, I have had this question for a while too, I tend to charge my OPO with the stock charger at home and it charges quickly but also drains quick, but when I charge it at my work using a BlackBerry charger, it charges slow but doesn't drain as fast. I could be absolutely wrong about this. So, would be great if someone who has a bit more knowledge about this could shed some light..

    It would help if you provided the info for the question you are asking, you keep mentioning charge time, yet you have not stated how long it is taking to charge your phone !!! 960mA IS NOT a charging speed it is an amount of current

    Because the cable supplied can't handle the voltage...
    Im using Hippo Teleport 45 cm cable and got 1,6 A output
    When im using Delcell Zaxti gen 4 cable, i got 1,3 A output
    When using supplied cable by OPO, only 900 mA delivered to my OPO
    :)

    What app do you actually use to see how high the mA rate is?

    The mA shows how much current is going through so a higher current means a faster charge but the opo charger cable is charging at half that current. I was a nice looking (possibly braided) cable to sport the full 2amps of charge the wall charger can output.

    Nice but is there a 2amp option to support the full mA and braided.


    I use ampere

    what kind of mA? And its a gigantic thing I only need 1 charger.

    I'm guessing you're seeing those numbers while your screen is on?

    When the screen is on charging current drops by half. Download battery monitor widget and leave your phone in charge, it will show you a full history of how much your phone is drawing in while screen is off.
