    Considering we need to use the surviving dash cables for greater charging, could you at least make some longer versions?

    I can barely reach when it's plugged in next to my bed!

    I also found the cable to be a little short.. not sure if its required for dash speed charging performance but i think that the longer the cable the less power/more issues it could have based on personal experience.

    Have you tried using another cable, say one from the OP2?

    Is there absolutely no benefit from dash charge with any other cable?

    I second this, a 2m dash cable would be perfect. that's one of the only things still bothering me. Had a nexus 6 and a 3m monoprice standard micro usb for that, and it was, a little too long maybe ( :p ), but it was better, and able to use phone when charging.

    I tried to use a USB extension of 0.2m and that was enough to prevent dash charging, also these USB power meters prohibit the dash charger.... So for now a AC cable seems to be the only solution to get a longer total length from the socket...

    it wasnt the usb extension distance that prevented dash charging, but the usb cable itself.

    USB 3.0 extension cable should do the trick. Haven' t tested personally, but don't use usb 2.0 extension cable, OP DASH cable requires more pinouts.

    Thought the dash cable was slightly thicker to allow more current through?

    Cable is short. Normally cable does not come in so short length. Needs to increase the length in new version

    I am worried about the length too since I need a couple in various areas.

    On the other hand, could we use the Dash Cable to connect to PC as storage?
    If I need to purchase another cable just for computer connection, can I just choose the normal USB Type-C cable?

    If you're plugging in for quick Dash charging, a short cable seems adequate. For overnight charging, I just use a regular old (and longer) micro USB cable with a type C adapter plugged into an old Qualcomm quick charger I had laying around at my bedside.

    You can use the Dash cable to connect to PC, I ran some ADB commands using it last night with no issue.

    On the subject of Dash cables, noone seems to have commented that the cable bindings with the phone is a round cross section cable but the separate accessory cable is the traditional OnePlus flat design. Go figure.

    SwiftKey seems to have autocorrected 'bundled' to 'bindings'

    I agree 100%. At least with the OP2 I could by a third party compatible 6ft cable, but right now there are none for the OP3 supporting Dash charge.

    It charges fast like fast/quick charging? I've used Google official usb-c chargers from my 6p and it charges slow. Normally 2-3 hours to fully charge whereas the dash charger only takes less than a hr for full charge.
