    Hi everyone,

    I'm Evan, I'm part of the Global Product Team and, today, I'm thrilled to share with you some additional details about our upcoming launch.

    Over the years, OnePlus has become a leader in adopting and implementing new technologies. Sharing the best technology with the world is one of our guiding principles and we’re always excited about new opportunities with the potential to improve our products. However, it’s often necessary to further develop a new technological concept to ensure we deliver the very best version of it.

    Improving wireless charging technology

    When wireless charging first appeared, it was clear that the technology would elevate the OnePlus user experience. But after numerous tests we found that it didn’t meet the same standards as Warp Charge. We decided to continue the development of our wireless charging technology before releasing a OnePlus wireless charging unit. This decision was not taken lightly. We were on the clock and knew that you, our community, expected us to deliver an exceptional product.

    So now, with the release of the OnePlus 8 Series, we are excited to announce the first Warp Charge 30 Wireless.

    Meet the new Warp Charge 30 Wireless

    Today, we can say with confidence that the Warp Charge 30 Wireless is a product we’re proud of. With a peak output of up to 30W, this powerful new wireless charger ensures your device goes from 1% to 50% in only half an hour.

    Innovative engineering

    To achieve these drastically improved charging speeds, we needed to combine the industry’s first isolated charge pump with Warp wireless direct charging architecture.

    The highly effective charge pump ensures a charge efficiency of 97% and minimizes the amount of energy converted into heat. Designed with similar functionalities to that of a kill switch, the isolated charge pump deactivates charging when abnormal currents and voltages are detected. This function helps to maintain a stable charge and keeps your phone safe while powering up.

    To improve charging efficiency and maintain a high-power charge for longer, we utilized Warp wireless direct charging architecture. This innovative technology enables real time communication between the wireless charger and the phone through a customized chip. The chip assists in controlling the charger’s current and voltage to maximize overall efficiency. By combining these two pioneering technologies, we were able to ensure a powerful 30W wireless charge that’s both fast and stable.

    Then there’s also the matter of Qi wireless charging. Considering most wireless chargers are Qi-compatible, it should come as no surprise that we made sure our wireless charging technology is also compatible with all Qi wireless chargers at 5W. In essence, this means that you can use almost any third-party wireless charger for a OnePlus device. On top of that, if you are using a Qi wireless charger that supports a 10W EPP standard, you’ll be able to get 10W charging speeds for your OnePlus phone.

    Convenient and hassle-free
    Without the hassle of plugging your phone in to charge, it’s easy to top up your battery at any time. Warp Charge 30 Wireless gives you the freedom to simply place your phone on the charging pad, take a shower, make coffee, brush your teeth and go.

    Make default warp charger backward compatible with quick charge too. I know they both are different technology but on the go charging is very slow with quick charging enabled powerbanks

    Welcome to the forums @Evan Z.! This is awesome, the world can finally say that OnePlus devices will have wireless charging now! Hope there'll be a variant of the charging pad that can lay flat :) Looking forward to seeing what color options it comes in!

    (I'll answer this question before someone even dares to ask :p NO, it is NOT possible to get wireless charging through a software update XD)
