    Hi, I bought new oneplus 3 from a local store and got the Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger instead of the original oneplus 3 dash charger, although it's not charging 60% in 30 min it does charge fast than usual. Just wondering if I'm using this charger instead I'm putting my battery life at risk..

    I guess I'm wondering why a new phone wouldn't come with the original charger in the box. All unboxing articles I've seen on this phone says it includes the dash charger... although I have to admit, I didn't watch "all" of them. I would certainly question the local store you bought it from.

    In order to fast-charge, both the phone and the charger have to be the same type of "fast charge". Mixing them like that gives you a normal 5 Volt charge, which is what we call a "slow charge". The OnePlus 3, however (like most "fast" charge phones, only fast charges from 0% (which you should never drop any lithium battery to) to 60%. From 60% to 100%, the "fast charger" charges at normal speed. Since you should really be charging at 50%, it only buys you a few minutes less charging time. ("Fast charge", by any name, is a selling point, not a shorter real charge. To shorten the charge time, they'd have to increase the charge current - in the phone, it's an internal function - to about 2.9 Amps, which I doubt we'll ever see - in any phone (a 1C - 100 mA charge).
