    I ordered a 4000mAh oneplus battery from China taobao, haven't arrive at my home. it does support dash charge and have temperature control module in it, will diy install and test it out soon, the review of the battery is quite good, still needa wait till I get it to test it out. I will post another reply when I've installed and used it for a few days.

    No, no one apart from OnePlus sells OEM batteries so regardless of what websites say, none of the batteries you get are from OnePlus. Every single one is a third party product

    The problem with that is that your phone won't be able to utilise the full capacity of the battery.

    The phone is able to utilise, I've read reviews before I buy, just need to calibrate the new battery after installing

    I highly doubt that you'd be able to utilise the full 4000mAh. That's one of the reasons due to which putting a 3400mAh battery in a OnePlus 3 didn't do anything. It was only still allowed to use 3000mAh

    Many of those reviews could easily be fake. Aftermarket batteries are a definite no-no for me, I had one which swelled up after only a week of use on an old phone of mine a few years ago. I would now only purchase official parts when it comes to things like battery and chargers, there are too many cheap and unsafe components out there.

    I'm not afraid to test it out hahaha, I've read a lot of chinese oneplus forum post about the battery before I buy the battery, I will also post my "review" after using the battery at this forum.

    You're definitely wrong. OOS SW is coded for 3400mAh, it will never utilise 4000 mAh battery reserve.

    No different from trying to use the OP3T 3400mAh battery within a OP3. It simply won't work the way you think it will.

    It's good to hear you are willing to do it, having a forummers word weigh stronger for others in the same situation.

    I did just installed the new battery today, its performing quite well right now.

    I'll post another update after a few week to give the accurate estimated capacity of this battery.

    But does that mean you could utilise the full capacity of 4000mAh using a custom ROM?

    I'm under informed on this. You said that OOS SW is hardcored for 3400mAh. Then surely wouldn't the use of custom ROMs enable use of batteries of higher capacities? If not, why?
