    Hey guys!

    I thought about if it is possible to charge the OnePlus 5 without using a cable.
    Somebody knows if that works? Couldn't find anything certain about that topic till now...

    if u have a case, might exist some usb-C to wireless charging pads that fit between the phone and the case.

    The device does not have NFC, so that's a no. But Dash Charge is fast enough to replace the need.

    The Oneplus 5 does have NFC (see specs list...), Wireless charging in my knowledge has nothing to do with NFC. (NFC = Near field communication, not near field charging :') )

    buy a simple type c QI cable for wireless charging if you need it so bad... personally i think its a useless feature and could/should be optional at checkout.... but because oneplus does not have the resources to create a third version of their phone with QI included, they wont do it, and it would be a huge waste for them too.... QI charging is useless imho when you have type c connection!

    yea, but i think its useless too cuz the wireless charging tech is currently at 500mA-1A charging (last i checked) which is pretty slow compared to the 4A dash charge

    Essentially if the phone has a metal back, it can not have integrated wireless charging. This is why Samsung has a glass back panel. Wireless charging is convenient, but I've been impressed with quick charging technologies, such as on the Nexus 6P and the DASH charge on my recently acquired 3T.

    That was one of the reasons why I did buy a OnePlus 5: because it does not have wireless charging, it does not explode and it will not microwave your body. Wireless charging is very bad for your health.

    That
    That was never mentioned or advertised, so assuming nothing of that sort is available, Would be great to have a feature like this though.

    Docking stations from 3rd party companies are good enough, but wireless charging is on a completely different level!

    I would bash Oneplus for this IF Dash was not so awesome, i mean i charge my phone for 20min and i'm good for a long time. Its really amazing.
