OnePlus 10T will feature 150W ultra-fast charging in the US, but there’s a problem

It will only charge at 125W in areas with 110V power outlets

Unlike Samsung and other Android manufacturers, OnePlus reveals key features of its upcoming phones days before they are officially unveiled. The OnePlus 10T is set to launch on August 3, and the company has already showcased its design, confirmed that it will miss the Alert Slider and Hasselblad, and pack up to 16GB of RAM. Now, with only two days left until the launch event, the BBK-owned company has detailed another major feature of the OnePlus 10T: 150W ultra-fast wired charging.


Dubbed the 150W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition, it can fill the OnePlus 10T’s 4800mAh battery from 0-100% in just 19 minutes. The bad news is that the charging technology only works with 220V or higher power sockets. This means that if you live in Europe, India and other countries where 220V is mainly used, you can take advantage of this feature. But if you live in the US or an area where 110-120V is mostly used, the OnePlus 10T’s charging speed will be limited to 125W. This is still fast enough to fill his cell to 100% in 20 minutes.

The good thing is that if you buy the North American version of the OnePlus 10T and travel to Europe or any Asian country, your phone will be charged at a full 150W. This is in contrast to the US variant of the OnePlus 10 Pro which lacks 80W SUPERVOOC charging support – its charging speed is over 65W.

Regardless of the country, OnePlus will stock a 160W SUPERVOOC power adapter and USB-C cable compatible with the OnePlus 10T. The charger will also support the USB-PD protocol, although its output is not detailed. However, this means that you can use the same unit to quickly charge your MacBook and other USB-C devices.

Despite delivering such a high amount of power to the battery in such a short time, OnePlus claims in its announcement that the 10T cell will retain at least 80% of its capacity after 1,600 charge cycles. This is partly due to the Battery Health Engine and a smart charging chip that keeps heat and voltage in check, especially towards the last 10% where the battery charges minimally at 100mA and 10mV.

For safety reasons and to ensure you’re using the original accessories, the OnePlus 10T will have 128-bit encryption that only recognizes official SUPERVOOC chargers and cables. Only when using a compatible cable and charger will the phone be charged at full 150W.

At this point, leaks and OnePlus itself have revealed almost everything about the 10T. The upcoming phone will be a “performance-oriented flagship” that will fall below the OnePlus 10 Pro. It is rumored to feature a 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, a 4800mAh battery, and a 50MP primary shooter.
