The OnePlus 6T is the latest smartphone to be released from OnePlus and as usual, it is packed with lots of high-end features. It has a huge 6.41-inch display, an on-screen fingerprint sensor, and even throws in CDMA network support so it can work on Verizon Wireless. Best of all, you can get this phone for as low as $529, and still have it include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
If you want to get the OnePlus 6T, the chances are you may want to get some accessories to go along with the phone. We are talking about cases to protect the phone, headphones for listening to songs, podcasts and more from the OnePlus 6T, and even chargers and external batteries to keep the phone going after it runs down its battery. In this article, we offer our choices for the best accessories you can currently buy for the OnePlus 6T.
OnePlus 6T Cases
OnePlus sells its own series of cases for the new OnePlus 6T on its website. They include protective cases made of silicon and polycarbonate. Our favorites are the official bumper cases for the phone, which offer more protection from falls due to their thermoplastic polyurethane material. They also come in some cool design on the back, including woven nylon or kevlar fibers and one made of real wood.
In addition to the official cases, there are already many third-party cases on sale for the OnePlus 6T on Amazon, and again they come in a variety of materials, designs and colors. You can check out our picks for the best OnePlus 6T cases that are currently available at the link below.

OnePlus 6T Headphones
One of the few strikes against the OnePlus 6T is that it is the first phone from the company to ditch the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of its USB Type-C port (although the phone does come with a USB Type-C to headphone jack adapter). Having said that, the quality of wireless Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, both from OnePlus and from third-party companies, is getting better and better.
OnePlus has launched its own Bullets wireless earbuds that look very much like Apple’s BeatX product. The $69 earbuds support the aptX audio codec and are an excellent choice for OnePlus 6T owners who really want to go completely wireless.
There are also plenty of other third-party Bluetooth wireless headphones and earbuds to check out and you can find our picks for the best ones to get for the OnePlus 6T at the link below.

In addition to the new wireless Bullets, OnePlus plans to sell USC Type-C versions of its OnePlus Bullets V2 earphones for $19.95, so OnePlus 6T owners can still have that wired earphone experience without the need for an adapter.
OnePlus 6T chargers
The OnePlus 6T gets a bigger 3,700mAh battery inside this time, compared to the 3,300mAh battery found in the OnePlus 5, 5T and 6 phones. The good news is that the battery still supports OnePlus’ fast charging technology (which used to be called “Dash Charge” until that name became involved in a trademark dispute). While we don’t know exactly how fast the OnePlus 6T’s battery will fully charge from nothing, it’s likely that it will take just over an hour.
The trick is that in order to take advantage of that fast charging tech, the OnePlus 6T needs its own proprietary USC Type-C cable and adapter. While you get such a cable and adapter in the box with the phone, you can also purchase extra OnePlus fast charging cables from the company for $14.95, and extra adapters for $19.95. The company also sells its own fast charging car charger for $29.95. Finally, there are plenty of bundle deals on the site where you can purchase extra charging cables and adapters together for a discount.
OnePlus 6T external batteries
While the 3,700mAh battery on the OnePlus 6T should be able to handle a full day’s worth of use on a single charge (if not longer) there might come a time when the phone runs out of power, and you are not near a handy power socket. In that case, it’s always good to take an external battery with you.
One of our favorite USB Type-C supported external batteries comes from Eighty Plus, which has a 10,000mAh external battery pack in a very slim and sleek aluminum alloy housing. You can charge up your OnePlus 6T at least two more times with a fully charged Eighty Plus external battery, with some left over. That should help when there’s not a power outlet nearby
You can check out many more external battery packs that will work with the USB Type-C connection on the OnePlus 6T at the link below.
