OnePlus 2 might not feature a fast charging feature, wireless charging feature, or any other feature that will speed-charge the recently announced flagship smartphone, but that is not stopping the handset from reaching 100 percent of its battery life, in record time. According to the latest findings, OnePlus 2 charging time only takes around 3 hours for the smartphone to reach to it full capacity, which is impressive indeed.

OnePlus 2 Charging Time Takes A Total Of 3 Hours And 20 Minutes To Reach To 100 Percent

OnePlus 2 sports a large 3,300 mAh battery, which is a decent improvement over the 3,100 mAh stacked inside OnePlus One. According to Android Police, even without the fast charging features working the magic for the smartphone, OnePlus 2 charging time literally allows you to watch a whole movie and return to your handset to see it at a 100 percent of its life.

According to the source, the total amount of time it took for the handset to reach 100 percent was 200 minutes, or 3 hours and 20 minutes. One of the biggest drawbacks of owning OnePlus 2 is that it does not feature Qualcomm’s Quick Charge feature, which is able to super-charge the device’s battery to 60 percent while only being plugged in for 30 minutes. Despite featuring a Snapdragon 810 SoC, the smartphone does not possess this functionality.

We have to say that the primary culprit responsible for this mess is the Type-C USB port incorporated in to the device, although having a compatible Quick Charge 2.0 charger is also necessary to take advantage of the feature. According to hardware specification rumors, Type-C USB ports are not compatible with this form of tech, but will be in the foreseeable future.
