Dash Charging Is Better Than Wireless Charging - OnePlus

Oh Dear! One Plus 5T Review Kit Leaked

Pete Lau has once again taken to the forum to reveal another big piece of information about the OnePlus 5T: there won't be wireless charging. If you look at the wireless charging pads, it will only provide support for 15 watts of power, which is less than what is delivered by the dash charge.

They also added that charging with a wire made more sense especially for those that want to use the device to play games or watch videos. Nowadays, students are purchasing OnePlus smartphones and the company is willing to provide a safe charging mechanism instead of wireless mode.

Apart from the absence of the wireless charging, the company has already confirmed that OnePlus 5T will be retaining the 3.5mm audio jack, contrary to the growing trend of removing the headphone jack in favour of USB-based audio transfer. However, Lau also didn't slam the door on a future inclusion of the feature. The OnePlus CEO noted that Qi wireless charging is more efficient but has a limited range, while Airfuel (used mostly by Samsung and Qualcomm) is more convenient to use but is less common.

Another given reason was that users won't be able to work on the device while it is kept on wireless charging pads.

Lau believes that wireless charging is an exciting concept, but dash charge is a much superior option for the time being.

Once you do that, let the update download and when it does, follow the instructions provided on the screen to install it. Users must first apply their credit or debit cards to Apple's Wallet app before proceeding with the Apple Pay Cash .

The OnePlus 5T will arrive in a week, as OnePlus confirmed that it will be announced on November 16 in NY, and the company's CEO just shared some new info on Weibo (Chinese social network).

The main reason to retain the dash charge technology is attributed to the fact that the technology is capable of delivering 20 watts of power.

To use a wireless charger, the user can just set their phone on the surface and charge.

While eliminating the step of plugging in your phone by just putting it down onto a pad sounds great, I consider it a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

As usual, OnePlus is teasing and confirming on the features that will be arriving on the OnePlus 5T before its official announcement. We don't know the standard charging time for wireless but we know it is slower.
