OnePlus videos show its new phone charging faster than the Samsung Galaxy S818
To show off how fast Dash Charge "does its thang," OnePlus posted a couple of videos today showing the barely out of the womb OnePlus 5 against the Samsung Galaxy S8. First, we need to get some numbers out of the way. The OnePlus 5 sports a 3300mAh battery vs. the 3000mAh cell in the Galaxy S8. After 15-minutes of charging, the OnePlus 5 had 29% of its battery charged compared to 20% for the Galaxy S8. After a bit over a half hour of charging, the OnePlus 5 had opened up a large 58% to 39% gap over Sammy's current flagship model.
The second video had both the OnePlus 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 connected to a car charger and after the car was being driven around for half an hour, the OnePlus 5 had 43% battery life ready to go versus just 12% for the Galaxy S8. The difference between most chargers and Dash Charge is that the latter increases the amps, not the voltage. This allows for a faster charging experience with less heat generated.
