    Hello everyone,

    Until devices have infinite battery life, or we discover something that gives unlimited energy (Sadly the “buttered bread taped to the back of a cat” machine doesn’t actually work :rolleyes:) charging is a necessary evil. But we want to help make it a bit easier, so if you remember that a few weeks ago I had you fill out a questionnaire about charging, good! If not, here’s your chance to jump on the feedback train. This week, the product team is back again with some more questions on charging, and the accessories you use to do so.

    Congrats to the winner of last week @21tahak. As always, I’ll be in contact with you shortly to get your info for some OnePlus swag.

    Nice :)

    Filled. Would love to see QC 3.0 and USB Type-C on the next flagship as well as USB 3.1 if possible. Definitely don't have a problem with USB Type-C not being fully adopted, and at this stage in the game it will be and has largely been embraced by every major vendor anyways.

    So you are saying that this isn't true?!? :screamcat::eek: Damn you all marketing teams and your evil tricks. :mad::p:D

    Form filled. ;)


    Until now I've always charged my tech with is own charger, but recently I bought a Huawei watch that came with a faulty charger (made a weird buzz sound) so after I got a refund and since I was buying a charger, I ordered one from Aukey with 3 usb ports for charging the op2, ipad and the watch. So far its working great, and for traveling it will be simpler to use. :)

    Would love to see one from Oneplus with some cool new tech on it... :p ;)

    Filled up the forum. I like to charge my multiple devices with respective adapters and cables to avoid any mismatch is input output frequency. It would be interesting to see a hub which can control the input output flow depending on/ for multiple devices

    Wireless charging is great but I typically only charge at night so USB-C is perfect for me.

    I charge my phone with wool socks and a trampoline usually. Go static or go home!

    I only use the official OP2 charger. I'm scared that using a cheaper one may burn my phone... I'll wait for Type-C chargers to be more used everywhere.

    I don't really see the need for charging hub. I charge my phone and laptop in so many different places and most of the time not at once so I would have to be carrying the hub all around me. I kind of see the point if you have plethora of different devices and you use them on your desk on daily basis or something.

    You mean Type-C Cables? Adapter is just standard 5V/2A (No Quick Charge 2.0). That has nothing to do with Type-C.
