Wireless charging has been around for almost ten years, with some companies even looking to ditch their conventional charging in favour of wireless charging. Now OnePlus has announced that OnePlus 8 series won’t only feature wireless charging, but it will be also be fast.
The launch of the OnePlus 8 series is right around the corner. So far many details have already been uncovered. However, a post on OnePlus’ forum announces that the upcoming smartphones will be capable of supporting “Warp Charge 30 Wireless”. Evan, who’s working on the Global Product Team of OnePlus, says that ‘Warp Charge 30 Wireless’ will have a “peak output of up to 30W, this powerful new wireless charger ensures your device goes from 1% to 50% in only half an hour.”

To get some perspective on how fast ‘Warp Charge 30 Wireless’ is, most wireless chargers support a peak output of up to 25W. 5W might not sound like much, but it’s a 20% increase in comparison to many other models.
Those worrying about wasting electricity can rest assured, since OnePlus says that the new technology has a “charge efficiency of 97% and minimizes the amount of energy converted into heat.” Regarding compatibility, the device will be Qi-compatible, however the ‘Qi-charging’ will only have a 5W output.
It’s expected that more will be revealed about ‘Warp Charge 30 Wireless’ at the OnePlus 8 Series Launch Event on April 14.
