OnePlus 3 Dash charging is awesome, but won't work without the official accessories

charger and cable that comes with the phone. The trouble is that OnePlus is using an implementation of Oppo's VOOC charging system (it's not quite the same since VOOC promises 75% charge in 30 minutes while OnePlus will only get you 63% in that time) and OnePlus is the first company to license and market the technology outside of Asia. So, no one else will even have the cables and adapters needed to give you the speedy charging you want.But, the OnePlus 3 Dash charging has a bit caveat to it: you won't get the benefits unless you use the official
You will still be able to charge your phone on any other USB type-C cable, of course. It just won't charge at the super fast speeds. With luck, accessory makers will start offering options, or maybe a store will get some Asian imports for OnePlus users, but until then be sure not to lose or break your official charging accessories.

Depends on your definition of expensive. $20 for the dash charger & $33.15 for the bundle which is on sale on OnePlus's site. That is expensive considering I bought a 3rd party replacement off of ebay for by One for about $4 bucks. It works just as well as the original just not as nice looking.

Does this charger come with the phone in box? Is it faster than Qualcomm 3.0 charger that comes with HTC 10 or LG G5?

This phone does come with the quick charger and it does charge the OP3 faster than the HTC 10 and LG G5 charge with their chargers, at least OnePlus claims so. I'm sure Phone Arena will test that assertion when they get their hands on the phone.

So how does this effect battery longevity? With a 3000mah battery it seems battery will degrade pretty quickly. Plus not being removable, replacing it will become a hassle.

The dash charger has most of the components that allow fast charging in the plug that goes into the outlet. This means that the heat that this device usually gives off is separate from the phone therefore not heating up your phone and degrading your battery.

I don't care about dash charging , my priority is a stable phone with good quality and unfortunately OnePlus will never be a real phone. So dash charging can charge the phone from 0% to 100% within 5 minutes but without a good OS and good active support and a phone with good quality they can't get in market. Unfortunately OnePlus has a horrible OS and support and a horrible team and of course horrible quality. I had experience of buying a device from this poor company and I won't make the same mistake
