    Maybe use warp charge instead of wrap charge?

    Seriously though, how many times have you charged and are the time consistent?

    Can you provide the source for that claim? :confused:

    Because all I saw from Oneplus was the reference to ~50% in 20min. So you can't expect it to do the rest in other 20min, since the last part of the charging is slower, thats how fast charging works nowadays. ;)

    i just dont get the size of the brick lol. Huawei brick isnt that big and thats a supercharge of 40w so i dont get how the 30W warp charge is like 50% bigger

    They are two different charging standards we cannot actually compare sizes you see

    Are you telling me wrapping the cable around the phone doesn't make it charge faster ? o_O

    Like youbi pointed out, Oneplus never claimed 0% (or 10%) to 100% in 40min. They only said, 0% to 50% in 20min.
    Have you tested that?

    Also btw: it's not good for the batttery to charge it up to 100% all the time. It's much better to stay between 20% and 80 / 85%. Means, just charge more often, but then really fast.

    no thats fair enough, not really a gripe as such as i charge it in open spaces so it doesnt have to tuck away behind a sofa or anything.

    This is more like a myth now and not necessarily true

    Since the tech behind warp charge is different probably the explanation is there. Oneplus approach for the charging is that the charger does most of the work and its the one that gets hot (and not the phone like in some other charging techs). So that should be the reason for the extra size. But this is just me speculating.

    BTW, I edited the title so we won't have more wrappings on this thread. :sweatsmile:

    That's not a myth, that's physics and it's true. Smaller charges, more often are better for longevity of the battery than full charges. See:

    I heard this a lot too and I'm wondering if more charges would use up the limited number of charge cycles sooner than using the full battery capacity and charging less often.

    Also, since most people change phones every 2 years anyway, it kind of doesn't matter. Might as well walk out of the house with a full charge and not worry about topping off before you get home.

    1 cycle is = 0% to 100%
    So if you charge from 50% to 100%, you completed just 0.5 cycles. So you don't use up your total number of cycles faster, just because you plug your phone into the charger more often. But the main important thing is, to avoid letting the battery drop too low (<20%) and avoid letting it charge to high (>85%).
    That is definitely true. I change every year to the newest Oneplus device (skipping the T series). Just today I upgraded from OP6 to OP7Pro. But I still care about my battery, even if it's not really affecting me. :D

    The last time I saw a charge test where they checked the temps, guess which two phones were the hottest.;)

    When you charge do you see the wrap charge animation?
