This list includes some OnePlus 5T accessories available directly from OnePlus, plus some third-party products to help extend your use of the phone.
March 24, 2018
The OnePlus 5T is the latest flagship product from the “Never Settle” team at OnePlus. While it has most of the same hardware as the OnePlus 5, which launched earlier this year, the major difference is that the OnePlus 5T has a much bigger 6-inch 18:9 display, compared to the 5.5-inch screen on the OnePlus 5. The new model can be yours for just under $500.
While there aren’t many first-party OnePlus 5T accessories, there are plenty of third-party products compatible with this excellent phone. In this article, we go over some of the best OnePlus 5T accessories on the market. This list will help you charge your phone, extend it audio with speakers and earbuds, and more.
OnePlus Dash Car Charger
The OnePlus 5T, like many other phones made by OnePlus, uses a proprietary battery charging technology called Dash Charge. Basically, it increases the amps for a faster battery charge without increasing the heat. However, it does require a special adapter to work. The OnePlus 5T includes such an adapter in every box, but what if you want to charge your phone in your car and don’t have a handy USB port? That’s where the company’s Dash car charger comes in
The device plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter port and allows you to plug in your OnePlus 5T with its Type-C cable. The Dash Charge technology should allow you to charge up your OnePlus 5T in your car to half its capacity in just 30 minutes, and charge it fully in just over an hour. This is pretty much a must for your OnePlus 5T accessories list, and you can get it for $30 directly from the company.
OnePlus Bullets earbuds
The OnePlus 5T does not ship with earbuds out of the box, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the company’s own earbuds. The OnePlus Bullets are on their second version, and weigh just 2 grams. OnePlus claims the cool-looking shape and design of the earbuds was created in part by a diamond cutter. The company also sprays zircon sand on them to improve their touch and feel.
The OnePlus Bullets also include a three-button in-line remote control and a number of different sized anti-allergy silicone ear tips. You can get the earbuds in either black or white for $19.
Sfmn OnePlus 5T Charger Dock
The OnePlus 5T does not support wireless charging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t charge the phone up with just a Type-C cable and Dash adapter. The company Sfmn (yes, that is its name) sells a charger dock that works with the OnePlus 5T and other phones and devices with Type-C ports. The stand allows you to sit the OnePlus 5T vertically and charge up your phone, while using the handset. You can also place the OnePlus 5T in the dock in a horizontal position — but of course it won’t charge that way.
It’s too bad that OnePlus doesn’t offer a similar dock compatible with its Dash Charge technology, but this docking device can still be useful at home, or when you travel. You can get it from Amazon now for $9.88.
Duragadget Wireless Keyboard
Typing on a virtual keyboard on the OnePlus 5T’s touchcreen display can be a bit of a pain, even with its larger screen. For those folks who prefer to use a physical QUERTY keyboard, the folks at Duragadget offer a small Bluetooth wireless keyboard that you should check out. Its design is small enough that you can transport it with your OnePlus 5T anywhere, and it comes with a microUSB port for easy recharging. The range of the keyboard is up to 10 meters, which should be more than enough for any OnePlus 5T owner looking to type emails, Facebook posts, or passwords. You can get the keyboard from Amazon now for $17.99.
CB3 Armor XL wireless speaker
If you want to listen to music, podcasts and videos on your OnePlus 5T without earbuds, you can use its onboard speaker, or you can get your hands on a wireless speaker for the phone. CB3 has a great waterproof wireless speaker you can check out called the Amour XL. Not only does it offer excellent audio quality, but it has its own 5,200mAh battery that can last 10 hours or more on a single charge. It’s also IPX6-certified for water, dirt and more outdoor obstacles. You can snag this terrific wireless speaker now from Amazon for $49.99.
Eighty Plus portable battery charger
The OnePlus 5T can last up to a full day with a single charge, with normal use. However, if you want to extend that time, you might want to consider getting an external portable battery charger. The one from Eighty Plus has a large 10,000 mAh battery capacity that can charge up the OnePlus 5T multiple times on a single charge of its own. The charger also comes in a sleek package that somewhat resembles the design ascetics of the OnePlus phone team. You can grab it on Amazon for just $29.99 in black, silver, or rose gold. One quick note: it is not compatible with the phone’s Dash Charge technology.
Of course, these are just some of the OnePlus 5T accessories currently available. There are plenty more products you can find that will help you get the most out of your device. Let us know in the comments if we missed any of the best OnePlus 5T accessories that you think belong on this list!
