I haven't received my phone yet so I don't know the charger amp, input and output information but truckroot in post #2 image shows the charger input is 100-240V~50-60Hz 0.3A and output 5V 2A but the charger I'm thinking of purchasing is this which is 2.1A so I assume using the original USB cable with that charger to charge the phone will give me the same speed as using the original OnePlus charger?

Buying after market micro USB cables will pretty much always result in getting cheap quality 28/28 cables and your device will barely break 500mah when it charges, maybe even less. This isn't the only issue though. After you use a cable for a while it pushes slight stresses on the micro USB connector itself and compresses it. This causes poor connectivity between your device and the wire. This is why it seems like your device port feels like it's getting loose and you think something is wrong. It's most likely the cable being slowly damaged over time. Solution? Get a 28/24 gauge cable. 24 gauge is ~ 60% larger and can handle 2amps. This is what is usually sent when you buy a tablet or large phone device. Your wire slowly gets damaged over time or may even stop working entirely. You order a cheap cable off Amazon or eBay and it never appears to charge at the correct speed anymore.

Buy a 28/24 gauge MicroUSB cable for 2A charging.

You need a 28/24 gauge microusb cable. That's the standard for cables charging at around 2A


I figured that. I ordered some cables from monoprice that are 28/24 (with the ferrite core; though that doesn't make a difference with charging; ones without it are only 28/28).

Do that math! Holy smokes!

You just have to find a Quickcharge 2.0 charger - I don't think they are out in the US yet, but you can preorder.

Is the motorola fast charger (on the motorola store) a quickcharge 2.0 charger?

That is the name of the Quickcharge 2 charger by Motorola, but make sure of that because when I look at it two days ago it was on preorderr status.

So far love these! Charges the phone pretty fast! Can't complain here!

Quick charge 2.0 is more than TWICE as fast as that. *12* V at *2.5*A.

You might be surprised by how many devices are compatible. Check the Qualcomm site.
