OnePlus may finally be bringing a fast-charging power bank for its users and we suspect the launch could happen alongside the much-anticipated OnePlus 8 series. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei asked the users to retweet if they’d like to have a fast-charging power bank. The tweet has grabbed enough attention as this is one of the most-wanted products from the company.

OnePlus launched its first power bank with a 10,000mAH capacity back in 2015 but had never brought any upgrades or successors to the same. The company has only been improving its proprietary wired charging standard over the years, with Warp Charge 30T being the latest one in the lineup. But, things are seemingly changing now and we would soon witness a fast-charging power bank as well.
Another most-awaited feature is the wireless charging support which we believe is finally happening as the name of the company has been spotted on the list of WPC joiners. This is a big indication that OnePlus is finally all set to bring the wireless charging support to its phones and it may start with the OnePlus 8 series.
OnePlus has received many requests for the wireless charging support and fast-charging power banks on multiple occasions and it has always reiterated that if a charging technology matches up to its proprietary wired charging standard then only it will consider bringing them. So, it appears the time has finally come as OnePlus may have found the way to bring the tech to the users.
Currently, we can’t discern how much would be the capacity of the power bank but we now have, at least, a confirmation and that too official that a fast-charging power bank from OnePlus is in the pipeline.
