OnePlus has launched the most advanced device ever, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. With 10 GB of RAM, Warp Charge 30 technology and exclusive McLaren-themed software, it’s a true salute to speed.
One of the trademark features of the phone was the Warp 30 fast-charging technology on the device. OnePlus claimed that it could give 50 percent of power in 20 minutes of charge.
The regular OnePlus 6T doesn’t support the Warp 30 charging technology as OnePlus has to change the safety mechanisms of the battery assembly in the McLaren Edition. The battery in itself has an 8-layer protection board to provide more efficient cooling during the fast charge process.
You can use in older OnePlus cables to Warp Charge your OnePlus 6T Mclaren edition. Apart from that, the phone’s adapter can fast charge any Dash Charge supporting device as well.
The power adapter that comes with the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is backward compatible with other OnePlus devices. However, when used with the OnePlus 3 through to the OnePlus 6T, the Warp Charge 30 Power Adapter will charge at regular Fast Charge speeds, not Warp Charge 30 speeds.
But if you’re picking up a OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition and already have a bunch of OnePlus Fast Charge Type-C cables, don’t worry. The regular OnePlus Fast Charge Type-C Cable is Warp Charge 30 compatible, meaning that it charges the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition at Warp Charge 30 speeds when combined with the Warp Charge 30 Power Adapter.
At the same time, you can use your Fast Charge Power Adapter to charge your OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, but it will charge at Fast Charge speeds only.
Warp Charge 30: What’s in a name?
At 30 watts, Warp Charge 30 is our fastest charging tech ever. In fact, it gives the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition a day’s power in just 20 minutes.
The reason behind the “30” part of the name is self-explanatory, so what about “Warp”? To answer that question, just think about science fiction. If you’re a fan of space movies, you can see why we chose this name to describe our ridiculously fast charging technology. Once those pilots punch the warp speed button, the universe flashes by in a blur.
