To meet customers’ high requirement for charging speed, Quick Charging technology has been increasingly popular. And OnePlus has entered the fray with the name — Dash Charging. But how fast does it really charge? With Dash Charging, how long will take to charge the new released OnePlus 6 from 0% to 100%?

It is claimed on OnePlus’ official website that, with the help of Dash Charging, it only takes you 35 minutes to charge OnePlus 6 from zero to 60% and can last for a whole day. However, to go from 60% to a full charge needs over 45 minutes. The reason for the charging speed slows down in the later charging stage is to avoid damaging the battery. The advantages of Dash Charging are that it not only lets you top off your battery quickly, but also it doesn’t overheat your phone. But what is Dash Charging? Here is something you need to know about Dash Charging.

As the brother brand of OPPO, the essence of the dash charging technology used by OnePlus is actually the VOOC flash charging technology of OPPO. It is a high-current charge, which holds the voltage of 5V. It can be charged with a high current of 4A to 5A after the start-up of the fast charging process. For the first time, VOOC Flash has built a full-end five-layer protection technology from adapters to interfaces to the inside of the phone, and leading industries will upgrade the PPM (1/1000000) to DPM (1/1000000000).

At the same time, in order to avoid the use of other charging equipment which cannot carry high current, the VOOC flash charging also has the function of automatic identification. If the charging equipment itself does not support flash charging, it will automatically use stable charging current to realize slow charging. It is understood that the development of VOOC flash charging technology lasted three years, applied for 16 patents, and reached the industry leading level in speed, heating and safety. It is the fastest and safest mobile phone charging technology in the world. At present, this quick-charge technology can only be seen in VOOC flash charging.

From the above, we can know that Dash Charging technology is applied by OnePlus as it help us to get rid of long charging time and quickly solve the need for rapid charging of large battery phones. Beyond all questions, people would love it. But battery consumption has been a problem for years, and a reliable external battery can always serve as a good back up for any long distance trip.

Here are some improved solutions for power-off.

THE QUICK-CHARGING MONSTER- Zendure A8 QC

What makes the Zendure A8 QC so different? The answer must be the quick charge. Applied Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Technology-another type of quick charge besides VOOC flash charging, the A8 QC is one of the fastest charging external batteries on the market. The official data shows that it can easily extend your phone usage 7-9 times, and takes only 10-12 hours to charge. Some users even commented that it can charge their phone more than 10 times on a single charge. The Zendure A8 QC is really an impressive charging device.

WALL CHARGER WITH QUICK CHARGE 2.0

Besides the portable charger, we highly recommend Zendure wall charger for the A8 QC Zendure portable charger, with a ZEN+ USB port capable of delivering Quick Charge 2.0 output at 5V/2A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A, enables you to charge tablets, phones, your A8 QC portable charger, and all Quick Charge 2.0 compatible devices at full speed. It's also compatible with Quick Charge 3.0 devices. It gives a fast charge.

This charger is from the same series as the last wall charger, but it comes with a different numbers of ports. With 4 ports, you can charge 4 devices at a time. It is super convenient for people who travel far. And it is definitely a perfect choice for those who want to enjoy quick charging.

Without a doubt, there will be an increasing number of mobile phones that support fast charging technology on the market in the future. With the increasing battery capacity of smart phones, the demand for charging will continue to increase. Qualcomm, manufacturers such as MediaTek, Oppo and others will be constantly updating their fast charging technology, and we would like to see more and better fast charging solutions available on the market.
