Finally, the Warp Charge in OnePlus 7 Pro! It is one of fastest phone chargers on the planet with 30W rating. Everything sounds really good but a lot of users are complaining about OnePlus 7 Pro warp charge not working. This could be due to number of reasons and we are going to explore the possible causes and solutions here.
How to check if OP7 Pro Warp Charge working or not?
The executives behind OnePlus series are really keen on making phone charging one of key experiences and best in market. While other companies are going after wireless charging, OnePlus phone just have much faster wire charging speeds. Therefore, the wireless charging basically is irrelevant at this point.
Ever since updating OnePlus 7 Pro to OxygenOS 9.5.7, a lot of users complain that their phone does not activate warp charge. In order to know if it is active or not, just check if the charging logo is a lightning icon or not. Moreover, the lockscreen should show a text saying “Warp Charging”. If you don’t see this, then it is charging at normal speeds.
In some cases, OnePlus 7 pro shifts between normal and warp charge continuously. It may show the lightning icon (warp charge) for a minute or two and then change back to normal. Or in some cases, the charging icon just keeps on fluctuating.
You could also use third-party apps to check charging voltage. It shows low values when it is not warp charging. The phone may also charge and then not charge and keep switching between these modes.
Problems and Solutions
Below is an assortment of all possible reasons for warp charge to not work in OP7 Pro. And you can also check out the solutions one by one to see what works for you.
1: Check original cable and charger
OnePlus phones come with a special fast charging grade cable and wall charger. If any of these are damaged, then the phone may not charge properly or warp charge may not work in this case. Check your cable for any possible breakages because this could be the issue. Order a new one in that case.
When it comes to wall charger by OnePlus, note that it does not work with every power outlet. In my personal experience with Dash Charger 20W, it did not work with a specific power extension. The phone keep fluctuating between charging and not charging. Therefore, try different power outlets. Not all power outlets can work well with OnePlus 7 Pro Warp charge.
2: Check OxygenOS version (OnePLus 7 Pro Warp Charge not working with 9.5.7)
Several users reported on the official forums that this issues started happening only after updating OnePlus 7 Pro to OxygenOS 9.5.7. Although this update aims are improving stuff like camera quality and overall bug fixes, it looks like, it broke something unintentionally.
