How Warp Charge 30T and 30 Wireless works?

There are different types of charging technologies like Samsung’s adaptive fast charging, Vooc fast charging and Oneplus’s Dash (Warp) charging with the help of which you can charge your smartphone very quickly. In this article we are going to tell you all about Oneplus’s Warp charge 30t technology.

The way in which warp charge charges your smartphone is very different as compared to other fast charging technologies. I will also tell you, how warp charge 30T is different from another charging technology.

What is Warp Charge 30?

Warp charge is a fast charging smartphone technology of smartphone brand Oneplus. Before warp charging, oneplus uses a different charging technology named Dash charging.

Oneplus introduced Warp charge 30 with Oneplus 6T Maclaren Edition. With the naming, it is clear that this will charge your smartphone at 30W. Previously, Dash charge charges your smartphone only at 20W.

Fast charging is a very good feature to have, but there are also some disadvantages of fast charging technologies like your smartphone get heated up, which then decreases your smartphone performance. But this is not the case with Warp charge 30. This fast charging technology is totally different from others.

How Warp Charge 30T is different from other chargers?

As I earlier said, Warp charge charges your smartphone in a very different way. If you want a detailed charging test of major fast charging technologies then checkout this video by Mrwhosetheboss.

If you charge your smartphone with other charges, you shall notice that your device is heating and this is because the charger is pushing more current to your device and this cause heating.

But if you use Oneplus Warp charge 30, your smartphone remains cooler. Do you know why? Read carefully the next paragraph to know!

The rating of standard fast chargers is 5V and 2A. The companies keeps the voltage stady at 2A and increases the current to 6V, 9V and so on. With 5V and 2A the result is 10W and with 9W and 2A, the result is 18W.

Thus in this case the voltage increases but amperage don’t. But what Oneplus did is with Warp charge 30T, they increases the Amperage and keeps the voltage steady to 5V. The rating of Dash charge was 5V and 4A, and this results to the 20W fast charging.

The rating of their new warp charge 30 is 5V and 6A. Due to this we can charge our oneplus phone at 30W and this is insanely fast. Let’s understand this with the help of an example.

Suppose the fast charging technology is a pipe of 1 inch through which we will pass 1,000 litres of water. As you know if we increase the supply of water to 2,000 or 3,000 litres, the pressure increases.

The pressure in this case is current and as I earlier explained more current results to more heating. This heating will badly affect your smartphone in terms of performance and battery life.

But Oneplus used to increase the size of pipe thus the pressure remains less and heating doesn’t occur. This is the reasonn why the size of warp charge 30T power brick is large. Now remember one thing, you need to have a charging cable and power brick of Oneplus.

OnePlus Warp Charge 30 Wireless

Oneplus has introduced a 30W wireless charging with the Oneplus 8 and Oneplus 8 Pro. 30W wireless charging is enough to make your smartphone the next Samsung Galaxy Note 7. But Oneplus has managed to keep you and your smartphone safe. So how did the do it? Well that’s what we are going to discuss.

Oneplus has claimed that their smartphone are capable of charging 50% in 30 minutes with their warp charge 30 wireless charger. First, let’s take an overview of Oneplus warp charge 30 wireless charger.

There is a single led on the charging pad which will represent the charging status. Red for charging and green for fully charged. At the back there is a fan to keep your smartphone temperature normal as low as possible. Then we have a cable attached to charging pad which is non-removable.

This is a issue in this charging technology. Charging cables are very fragile and very easy to break if you carry them. If they break, it makes your charging pad completely useless. Instead this Oneplus should use a Type-C cable like Samsung’s wireless charging technology.

To counter the heat Oneplus has taken two measures.

First one is the fan that we saw on the back of warp 30 wireless charger and the speacial thing about this fan is, this fan is much bigger as compared to fans of normal wireless chargers. Also this fan is very loud. Oneplus has claimed that this fan can get as loud as 30 decibels. It is not too loud but it is noticeable.

The second measure is Oneplus has reimagined the way to deliver power to a smartphone. Usually for a 30W charger we see something like 5V and 5A which results to 30W. But for the Oneplus warp 30 wireless we have 20V and 1.5A. This measure is a lot more efficient and it doesn’t loose too much power in the phone in the form of heat.

Oneplus has 2 isolated charge pumps which converts 20V, 1.5A into 10V, 3A and the second pump converts 10V, 3A into 5V, 6A which results to safe charging.

Usually this wireless charger works best with Oneplus smartphone but you can still use it for other Qi smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S20. Overall this is a great wireless charging technology but it is a little expensive. However the Indian price of warp charge 30 wireless has not been confirmed but according to a report by Pricebaba and tipster Ishan Agarwal states that warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger will be priced at Rs. 3,990.

Warp Charge 30T vs. Warp Charge 30 Wireless

If we compare Oneplus Warp Charge 30T vs. Warp Charge 30 Wireless, the name make you to believe that it charges just as fast as Warp Charge 30. But it doesn’t; it charges closer to an 18W power brick, which is still blazing fast for a wireless charger.
