    Are there any similarities to your issue, do you think the problem is the dash plug or cable?

    This happened to me one time with the dash car charger. It was odd.

    Doesn't it only dash charge until a certain percentage? Maybe that's it.

    You'll have to provide more details on the issue. Otherwise I assume you're referring to it stops working after a certain percentage.

    Dash Charge, like all Fast/Quick charge would rapidly charge your battery using the high voltage/amperage until 80% afterwards it will trickle charge the rest to 100%.

    What happen is that sometimes when I connnect the dash to the power source in start charging the OP3 but only says charging I need to disconect and reconect a couple of times the dash from the powersource in order to make it work, after that is says dash charging.

    I was wondering if the problem is that I'm connecting the dash to a surge protector at my work.

    I've just charged my OP3 from 27% to 93% in less than an hour - didn't time it. But it still says "Dash charging".

    A little OT, but not that much to me: am I the only one to get a strange feel (like the current is flowing through the chassis) then touching the phone while charging?

    Exactly what happened right now for me. The phone was at30% and I wanted to try to charge it for 30 minutes so I enabled a timer and plugged it in....after the 30 minutes it just had 59%.
    It just showed charging with red LED, I gave a bit of pressure on the USB C and it turned blue and dash charging was displayed...

    So watch out if you are to gentle when plugging the phone in, it may not charge with full speed.

    Got my OP3 yesterday. Plug in to charge 1st time took under an hour. Receives a battery warning at 1% at 8am, I plug it into the Dash charger. Check it at 11am, it was at 2%. Is something wrong? I just tried removing the cable and reinsert. the charging sign is not not lit but it's charging :(

    Just finish charging up to 98%. Fingers crossed it's just a one time issue

    well i wiped data & cache the moment i could boot into recovery.:cool:

    then wiped cache a few more times after installing my apps & settings via play store:p

    i didn't charge it until i insert my SIM restarted tested LTE speed which i never had :oops:

    i notice Dash C cable has the 2 dimple closer to the cable itself on the USB-A side, u have to push it into the brick a little until that goes inside, never try to see if dash charging works without pushing it all the way (USB-A side) o_O

    No worries here, mate. The only time the Dash Charge doesn't work for me is when I DON'T use the OEM white brick to plug the cable into. I've tried it with a 3rd party cable and it Dash Charges...again only with the OEM brick plug.

    have you try using DC brick + 3rd party cable, does DC work? (i know 1+ said only OEM to charge DC enabled devices to avoid any issues etc etc)

    SunSpear, Jul 11, 2016 :

    So I've tried using the OEM cable with a different brick...no Dash charge.

    I also tried using two 3rd party USB Type-C cables with the OEM brick...no Dash charge.

    I also tried using the OnePlus 2 charger...Dash charge.

    Looks like it must be the OEM combo for the time being.

    OnePlus has previously said they put a chip in Dash charging cable to check to make sure you are using a the right USB-C cable.(Dash) Apparently other USB-C cables are not rated for charging at 4 amps. Makes sense actually. Would like to have seen a longer charging cable though.

    My bad...my previous post should have said that using the OP2 OEM charger does NOT result in a Dash Charge.
