Why no quick charge in OnePlus 2? :(


How important is QuickCharge for you?

  1. Very important. I won't be getting the OP2

  2. Somewhat important. I'll be considering alternatives.

  3. I don't care. #NeverSettle forever. Oh wait, that doesn't make sense here...

    Lets wait and see the final version review before we make hasty assumptions.

    Yup. I want a battery that won't give out after a year, not a battery that takes 30 min fewer to charge.

    its definitely because of heating issue with 810 chipset, if they integrated fast charge capability then there would have been heating issue as we all know fast charge can lead any device to heat up a bit than normal.
    so its quite understandable that they didn't integrated this feature to prevent heating issue
    well am glad they did this
    am happy to charge my device a bit longer than suffering from heating and throttling issue

    no QI support?, no quick charge?. Flag ship killer?, maybe laugh to death. This is VERY bad IMO.

    Quick charge probably shortens battery life, but not much else. If the chassis has been designed to dissipate heat, it should have little effect on the processor. Certainly nothing to lose the convenience over. It's probably just because the extra cost in the charger.

    What's the point of Type-C usb 2.0? Just a headache, all losses, no gains.

    According the OPT Chinese page contain the following info:

    5V/2A Quick charge. One period/class (I am not sure it means 30min, 45min or 1hr) 50%, 2hr11min 100% ...

    Does the above qualify for quick charge??

    Yes, absolutely, but it's very useful in times of emergencies. Also, imagine a pocket QuickCharge battery cell type of external charger. It would top off your phone and give you a couple of hours of use within 10 mins.

    That's not an issue for me. I seldom keep a phone longer than 6 months. The OnePlus One is the longest I've kept a phone [12 months] since my BlackBerry Pearl [14 months]

    My One Plus already charges fast enough for me. If they have the same or higher current charger, I will be satisfied. I do wish they would have included it and I know others are disappointed. OnePlus will probably blog post on how fast it actually does charge soon. ;)

    Actually, Type-C support 100 watts, so quick charging would be a cinch. The problem is it's USB 2.0, and I'm guessing they had to pay a nickle or so license fee to use the quick charging advertising, so pocketed that instead of including it.

    You're also going to have a little involved in design and a tiny bit in the charger and phone hardware (takes more protection since the battery heats up so fast). All told it probably cut 20-25 cents off the delivery of each unit.
