Opo has higher power requirements. You may need a cable with a 24AWG or better rating (lower allows more current).

Does it work with the stock cable?

My OPO works with any cable, though time to charge is the best on stock cable. But my friend's OPO doesn't charge at all. Even on stock cable.

Unable to make sense of it at all. I may sound like a simpleton, but maybe there is some checkbox I ticked somewhere which is preventing this? UGH! :P

The phone will work with any cable. Worst-case the cable's resistance and diameter will reduce the maximum charging current significantly but it always will charge the phone.

It's because the laptop isn't putting out enough current. It must be at least 2a to charge properly.

No USB port has that much current except maybe for highly specialized ones. USB2 is rated on 0.5Amp, USB3 on 0.9
Of course the phone will take significantly longer to charge or may even discharge when used while plugged in.

I can say "me too". My one also didn't charge from powered off PC while Nexus 5 plugged in the same PC with same cable charges fine.
When PC is powered on, One charges intermittently. I.e. I plug it in, it charges for some time and then stops. "OS monitor" shows "discharging [USB power]" state.
Any thoughts?
