I recently bought an 80w charger (probably a copy). And in ampere app it shows around 2900 mA, I attached a picture. Is this expected amount from from and 80w charger. If not then kindly tell what is expected amount and if there is any harm in continue charging phone with this charger.

Bare in mind the temperature will make voltage and allowed amperage vary greatly.

When it hits 38c it'll drop in amps, then it'll drop again at 39 and 40 and so on, meaning that the proposed 5000MAh allowed charge will not happen, I've seen it as low as 1900MAh.

I haven't witnessed the change in voltage but it'd make sense for it to follow suit.

Your charging looks ok in face value.

Heres mine.. tends to change with temp , battery level.
I tried another app accu battery in its setting was "dual cell battery mode" I googled and found that oneplus 10 pro uses dual cell so i toggled the option on. Now this is the result I am getting.

I'm so glad I found this thread. Enabled the setting on Accubattery and my charge speeds jumped. This makes sense because it was reporting very low speed for me, but the percentage was climbing at a quick pace.

This is perfectly fine. You are charging a 5 A battery with 3 A.
Up to 1C, so 5 A is safe. Things like max charging voltage and temp are hardcoded in kernel which you can't simply bypass with a more powerful charger.

PS: the thread title should be edited to: "Charging Current"

In my opinion my charger cant deliver more 2900mA and the avg mA is 2640. In post #13 @dldaz is getting 5821 at 39°C. Which is more then twice. I am looking for a genuine or at least a good quality 80w charger will share current/voltage after results.

According to the specs it should be possible to charge with 5 A as well.
Because your charger have the same specs as the one which is getting over 5 A. But the question is if you both are using the same phone with the same kernel. Or other possible reason is that fast charging is disabled in Android settings.

Usually OEMs don't allow to charge with 1C. But you can get 1C with a custom kernel, if it has support for charger control.
