    Hey Community,

    As things may be getting back on track soon. We're all eager to get back to the things we've experienced the Fear of Missing Out for. Meeting friends and eating out may have begun, but what we were missing most is giving in to the feeling of wanderlust.

    Traveling and visiting places is something most of us enjoy collectively. While in 2020, we have been deprived of our bucket list and places to go, but we will be travelling normally soon. This means lots of taxis and plane rides. While we use our phone for everything, ranging from tickets, checking in, booking cabs, and even the music on the plane, our phones could use some charging.

    Well, to make that easier, we are back with another feature on OxygenOS, tailor made for Indian users. This convenient new service on your phone will notify you of the nearby OnePlus charging stations at the airport. Not just that, you can also track the station and the distance to the closest ones. With the help of beacons integrated into the charging stations, your OnePlus device identifies charging stations nearby. You can mute them anytime if you're stuck in the long halts at the airports.

    How it works:

    Nearby Charging Stations service on your phone will notify you when you are near a OnePlus Charging Station along with tracking how far from it is from you and where is the closest station to you.

    The service runs with the help of beacons integrated in the charging stations that allows OnePlus devices to identify a nearby charging station and generate a notification. You can mute this service for 6 hours if you find yourself in long halts at the airports.

    Currently the charging stations are available at Bangalore airport, and will soon be launched at Delhi airport in India. The best part - we support WARP Charge 30 fast charging built-in through the USB ports. It’s compatible with all OnePlus devices, just remember to keep the Red Cables handy!

    We hope you'll charge your devices before you fly off to your next destination. Stay tuned for updates on more airports as we're adding them to our list.

    Devices Supported:

    The feature is being rolled out in an incremental fashion for OP8, OP7 and Nord series devices. Coming soon to OP6!

    Happy flying!

    Never Settle

    I don't want to discourage the initiative, but why are such charging stations required?? Atleast why at the airport. There are many charging stations at the airport. Why a special OnePlus charging station?

    These charging stations can be useful for marketing as it will surely grasp some attention towards the brand. Otherwise, I can't get the point of having additional costs on these. Instead, provide users some cost incentives.

    I also have the same question...maybe it is for publicity, but there are other methods for publicizing an electronics brand!
    This wasn't required:eek:

    I don't think it is required at all. Because now a days in almost all modern places , these are inbuilt features to have charging stations of different kind of ports.

    Now, having a kiosk, people'll start asking for Dash/30 W WARP/65 W WARP , then issues like I charged my OP3T in the 65 W Charger , My battery died, My phone is not working , give me a new phone ... ,😂

    No people will still carry powerbank bcuz these facilities are only available at airports, not in coffee shops, etc. So it is still convenient to carry am personal Power Bank instead of relaying on such stations... Plus there will b too many ppl with their phone dieing and we may had to wait in queue to get our phones charged... Just thinking 😅😛

    True, In airports they have multiple wall charging slot. And most of us no all of us travel with mobile charger when flights involves. So it does not make any sense to put any charging station at airport.
    Total waste of money.
    Instead they can put charging stations in super market like DMart, Big Bazar, Reliance and Tata Store with tying up with them. IF THEY ARE REALLY PLANNING TO PUT CHARGING STATION.
    Most of the city has these supermarkets or mall. So it will be more reachable to all of us.

    Let me answer this question for you.

    They have put these charging station at airport for our convenient.

    You do not need to carry your whole charger these charging stations supports Warp/Dash Charging so you can simply charge your phone even you are carrying just your Warp/Dash charging Cable.
