Recent OnePlus phones have been all about speed — from snappy performance to speedy charging tech. The company is so absorbed by this notion that it waited a long while before introducing wireless charging to make sure its implementation lived up to its high standards. The company's Warp Charge, previously Dash Charge, has been among the industry’s fastest charging solutions, but OnePlus doesn’t want to settle there and seems to be kicking things a notch higher with an even faster charging speed.
Battery advancements haven't kept in step with performance improvements, but the charging tech for topping those cells up has come a long way. Now, most phones come with some flavor of quick-charging technology that promises to fill our capacious flagships in arbitrarily small periods of time. But in the case of Google's Pixel 2 XL, it turns out that its "Charging rapidly" notification isn't always an accurate statement. In low temperatures, Google's flagship will claim to be charging quickly (10W+) when, in fact, it's actually charging at less than 4W.
