OnePlus Explains The Dash Charging Technology In A Video

Actress Emily Ratajkowski tries make the users understand the tech with a quirky example.


There is no doubt that OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T are great smartphones. One of the most appreciated features of these devices is the dash charging technology incorporated by OnePlus.

In our test of OnePlus 3T we found that within half an hour the phone charges almost from 0 to 60 percent. And it takes just about an hour to charge the phone till 3000 mAh completely. OnePlus supplies a special charger with Dash Charging technology with the phone.

The company today released a new video starring actress Emily Ratajkowsk explaining how the dash charging technology works. The video shows that while the other fast charging technology relies on providing the higher voltage to the device Dash Charging generates more power through higher amperage. It should be noted that OnePlus supplies a charge of 5A and 4V rating with the device.

The video also shows that the charger itself converts the power in the adapter and uses a thick cable to transfer that to the device with USB C port.

OnePlus Dash charging technology currently only works with OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T by using the dedicated charger and the cable. It is based on Oppo's VOOC charging technology. There are other fast charging technologies such as Qualcomm's fast charge in the market as well.
