    Hey. I misplaced the DASH Charger ( 5 volt, 4 amps) for OnePlus 7 in my home country and I can't get a new one since none of the Oneplus products and accessories are being sold where I moved in. Luckily, I have the DASH charging cable which is the only thing needed for the Dash Charging to work.

    I read somewhere that the tiny circuitry at the end of the DASH charging cable will always try to draw 4 amps even if I use let's say a charger brick of only 1 amp output. I don't know about the safety circuitry OnePlus has put into OnePlus 7 and the DASH charging cables to avoid this. I have a 5 volt 1 amp iPhone charger lying around to use with the DASH Charging cable,

    1. Will it be potentially damaging the phone's battery over time due to using incompatible hardware for charging?

    2. Also, Will it be a potential fire hazard from the charger which is subjected to draw more amps than it should due to DASH Charging cable?

    Thank You

    According to a little quick charge primer (https://www.androidcentral.com/warp-charge), OnePlus "uses dedicated circuitry in the charger itself for heat management and dissipation, which is why you can only get Warp Charge speeds with OnePlus-branded wall and car chargers — such as the one that's included in the OnePlus 7T's box."

    No, you'll just get a normal, non-Dash, charge.

    2. Also, Will it be a potential fire hazard from the charger which is subjected to draw more amps than it should due to DASH Charging cable?
    No, the phone can't draw more current than the charger can deliver - the charger is protected against that.
