The OnePlus 8 Pro finally answered fans8217; prayers by adding wireless charging capabilities and, as promised, the company isn8217;t just dipping its toes into the cable-free waters.
The OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger promises replenishment at a mightily impressive 30 watts – that supersedes anything we8217;ve seen from a mainstream smartphone. OnePlus promises it8217;ll take the phone8217;s battery from 0-50% in under half an hour.
The Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger stand costs £69.99 from the OnePlus Store, or £66.45 (5% off) if you order when purchasing the phone. Overall, that8217;s a pretty reasonable price point, we8217;d say
OnePlus is also offering pre-order customers the chance to win one, although we8217;re surprised it isn8217;t dangling a free one as an incentive to reserve the device, which goes on sale on April 21 (April 29 in the US).
The new charger8217;s design is much more focused on heat management than any wireless chargers we8217;ve seen before, going so far as to include a fan (audible) to keep things running cooly. It8217;s also a stand rather than a pad, which means you8217;ll be able to charge your phone at your desk and still see incoming notifications, rather than placing it flat on a surface.
OnePlus also promises charging can be achieved through cases as thick as 8mm, while there8217;s also a Bedtime mode enabled by default that restrict overnight charging speeds to 10w. As well as the 30W capabilities, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also compatible with existing Qi wireless chargers, meaning you8217;ll be able to replenish the handset cable free; albeit at a much slower rate.
