Among the other key features, OnePlus 3 Dash Charging is the most prominent feature of the latest OnePlus 3 flagship. It will charge your phone from 0 to 60% in only 30 minutes. Unfortunately, it will only work with the official OnePlus accessories only.
OnePlus made its latest flagship, the OnePlus 3 official today. The smartphone features top-notch specifications and hardware. It is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset. It will feature 6GB of RAM and will come with a whopping 64GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, the OnePlus 3 will not support microSD card expansion. The flagship is the price at an affordable rate of $399, so its an ultimate go-to choice for those who are one a budget.
The OnePlus 3 comes with plenty new exciting features. But, the most interesting one is the OnePlus 3 Dash Charging. It is a new charging feature that provides a custom fast-charging solution. OnePlus claims that the Dash Charge feature will allow users to charge their device from 0% to 60% in a brief charging session of only 30 minutes.
The battery capacity of OnePlus 3 is also substantial. With only 60% charge you can get 7 hours of video playback provided you keep your device at medium brightness. The Dash Charge feature works in a brilliant way. It creates a larger electric current input without increasing pressure on the device which results in stable, consistent charging speeds. This latest quick charging solution is beneficial to the fast charging process.
The Dash Charge Feature also does not slow down its charging speed when the smartphone is being actively used while connected to the charger. This often happens during gaming, 4K video recording, or while the screen is on.
Furthermore, OnePlus boasts that the OnePlus 3 Dash Charging feature has another plus point. The Dash Charge does not generate excessive heat while the smartphone is charging and keeps the device cool. Speculation suggests that the main reason for this is the metal body of OnePlus 3 which helps dissipate the heat from the device during the charging process.
Also, most of the components that produce heat during the charging process are installed inside the Dash Charger Adapter itself,which keeps all undesired heat right next to the wall socket, and away from the smartphone.
The OnePlus 3 will come with the new Optic AMOLED display, a 5.5-inch, 1080 x 1920-pixel screen with special gamma adjustments and anti-reflection coating. For more details about One Plus 3 click here to read more about the specifications.
OnePlus 3 Dash Charging will only Work with Official Charger and Cables which come with Phone.
As discussed earlier, only drawback withe the OnePlus 3 Dash charging is that it requires the official chargers and cables which come with the OnePlus 3 to utilize the feature. Normal USB-C type cables will be able to charge your OnePlus 3 but the Dash Charging feature will not work in this case.
OnePlus is using the technology used by OPPO’ VOOC charging system with minor tweaks. The OPPO VOOC charging system charges the phone to 75% in 30 minutes as compared to the 63% of OnePlus 3 Dash charging feature. Because both the phones are only available in Chinese and sub-continent markets, finding the supporting cables will not be an easy task for US and European users.
Although, if the OnePlus 3 gains momentum in the US and European market, chances are there that we will start getting the third party cables and chargers which support the OnePlus 3 Dash charging feature but their reliability will be a big question like it happened in the case of USB-C Type cables.
