Warp charging on my OnePlus 7 Pro not as fast as claimed

    Well... Not all Indian 7 Pro devices take 1.5h for a charge as far as I unstood it.
    Does the battery run hot on Indian devices or something?

    is nobody bothered by this anymore? 0-35 in 20 min to 50 in 20 min is a huge difference. why is oneplus silent on this?

    When the temperature is lower than 15 °C or higher than 35 °C, the phone may not be able to enter the Warp charger.

    It IS A problem when it charges at almost half the rate as promised. this is slower than their 3 year old dash charge tech.

    What is the promised rate? I haven't seen any exact official text promising any thing else than "half a day in X minutes" and similar vauge stuff.
    Still some reviewers seem to have gotten a promise of this and that while it really was "up to X". So I would take that kind of promises with a grain of salt...
    There will obviously be different factors that limits the charge. Temperature is one of the major limitations. If it's already pretty high before starting a charge it will ofcource nearly kill of all the high current part of the charge right away.
    Dash and Warp is not much of a differance on a full charge. The big differance is on the lower end of the charge (at low battery level) . There the Warp leaps ahead... if the temperature allows it.

    how about them saying it's 34% faster than 6t charging?

    And 20w and 30w no difference? what point are you trying to make by defending them Mr. fanboi?

    I'm talking about lower charge levels only. 0-50is what I'm talking about. IT IS MUCH SLOWER than they promise it to be.

    Don't get mad mate, my 7Pro need 20 min from 0-50% and 85min from 0-100% its all fine here in Europe, mb you using wrong charger or your household not compatible with the 30W charger.

    yes, fine here too. charging speed depends on so many things - like what is running on phone - it is still faster then anything else. I don't care how many minutes it takes, as long as it is a lot faster then a standard charger.

    I would say 34% is about right (under the right circumstances ofcource).

    Stating facts and thoughts does not nessesary count as fanboyism. I know there is problems but temperature limitations kick in for various reasons, usually good reasons too.
    If your device can not use the 5.5-ish Amp charge close to no time at all there will of course be a major impact on the 0-50% area. The major improvement is in that area. Warp moves more of the energy losses that adds heat into the power brick. It just gives some more thermal headroom making high current charging possible over a longer time.
    It still needs to follow the same golden rule as all other devices, "do not enter thermal runaway".
    The quicker the chargers get, the better controll needed due to higher risks, the more sensitive to errors/failure it becomes too. There have been many complaints of Warp not working of various reasons. Ofcource I'd prefer it never to fail but when it fails it should fail into safe mode and not into flames. So Warp can actually be more prone to fail and stop working than other slower methods.
    Without knowing everything about your specific situation I can not really say where the problem exists. I can only mention possible reasons behind it.
    Promises like charge speeds, battery life and stuff is usually best case scenarious... It's not limited to just Oneplus to use such selling points.
    As a side note. Discharging to 0% seems to be rather common practice... But most often that is a bad idea. Some may recommend doing it monthly though.
    My charge cycles look like this. Only time I discharged to 0% (well 2% really) just to do that measurement.

    I hope this did not sound like too much of fanboyism.

    Pretty much a best case scenario then [e]1f60a[/e]

    I am facing the same issue the charging is super slow when compared to my 5 series why do you claim something that is not available. Super disappointed. Bought just yesterday

    Maybe something is faulty then. If possible try a other original charger. If that does not help maybe the device has issues. Check with a service center if possible.
    Also make sure the phone does not have a huge battery drain. That will affect charge time.

    It charges quickly with warp really, but I noticed that if I leave it for an extra 30 minutes, the battery lasts a lot longer
