    So my question is - Is it the cable or the plug that makes the phone dash charge?

    Meaning i can see Dash Charging is the fastest but depending which charger your using will it then go to rapid charging or just charging or slowly charging?

    Is it down to a decent usb type c cable ?

    Im curious to know can any other high wattage usb plug socket and decent cable achieve this?

    Dash charge will only work using the official adapter AND the official cable.

    You can use other cables/chargers but it will only charge at regular speeds.

    I spoke to the support and they told me that if you use the dash charge wall plug then it will dash charge but the higher current could damage non-Dash cables so recommend using the proper cables. Depending on your country you could buy the OPPO fast charge cables (OnePlus's parent company) as VOOC is the same technology.
