OnePlus claims that the OnePlus 9 Pro can go from 1-100% in just 43 minutes which makes it one of the fastest wireless charging standards available commercially. OnePlus 9 Pro has a dua-cell configuration that is charged at 25W speeds. Though OnePlus does say that “compared with wired charging, wireless charging is less efficient, meaning more heat is produced during the charging process. With wireless charging, higher amperages lead to increased heat production, so, for Warp Charge 50 Wireless, we chose to use high voltage power instead.”
The dual-cell structure of the battery produces less heat during fast charging and is complimented by advanced cooling. The OnePlus 9 Pro has a large vapour chamber along with copper foil and graphite sheet that helps keep heat dissipation in check, allowing it to remain cooler when gaming or doing intensive tasks.
OnePlus will also launch the new Warp Charge 50 wireless charging dock alongside the OnePlus 9 series. The new charging dock has two coils that can charge the phone horizontally and vertically as well. It also has a detachable cable, unlike the previous generation. The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro also support 65W fast charging and the OnePlus has upgraded the battery from the OnePlus 8T to attain even faster-charging speeds.
The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro can go from 1-100% in 29 minutes tops with the Warp Charge 65T fast wired charging.
