Best Portable Chargers for OnePlus Phones

Xcentz xWingMan Dual 5000 and AUKEY PB-Y36 Sprint Go Mini 10000 PD for OnePlus phones

A portable charger (aka power bank) can mean the difference between stressing over your OnePlus phone’s battery life. Or being able to use it all day long without worry. Because OnePlus uses a proprietary fast charging standard there are no fast charging power bank options. But you can make use of USB-C power banks to get portable charging at a decent rate. While also offering enough capacity to keep you going, whether for busy work day or long trip.

Fast Charging OnePlus 8, 7/7T, 6/6T, 5/5T, 3/3T

OnePlus phones use a proprietary fast charging standard called Dash Charging. It increases both the voltage and the current going into the phone. Most other standards only increase the voltage. This allows them to charge their phones up to 30W. The downside is a lot of heat. So the power conversion circuits have to be in the charger. This keeps the phone from support other fast charging standards.

A newer version is called OnePlus Warp Charge 30, but works the same way.

Learn more about Dash Charging, Warp Charge, and other fast charging standards.

USB-C to USB-C Cable

OnePlus’ fast chargers need to use their own cable. They support higher current than other USB-C to USB-A cables.

If buying a non-OnePlus power bank you can use any USB-C cable. A USB-C to USB-C cables with 60W and USB 2.0 support is your best value.
