Can you charge the Oura Ring without the official charger?
Like most smartwatches and fitness trackers, the Oura Ring ships with a proprietary charging kit which includes the charging dock and a USB-A to USB-C cable. A wall charger is not included, so you’ll need to source your own. As a result of this particular design, you cannot charge the Oura Ring without its dock, nor can you use a wireless charger to charge it, either.
More importantly, each Oura Ring size ring has a specific charging dock. This means you cannot use a size 13 Oura Ring charger to charge a size 8 ring — it simply won’t fit. Similarly, a size 8 charger may be too large for a size 13 ring.
Can you buy a replacement Oura Ring charger?
Yes! If you require an additional charger for travel or lost your original charger, you can purchase a replacement from Oura. As mentioned, Oura’s charging docks are meant to fit specific ring sizes. If you own a size 8 Oura Ring, purchase a size 8 charger. Thankfully, there is no premium for larger chargers. All Oura Ring charging docks cost $59 at the company’s official store.
It’s worth noting that the Oura Ring Gen 3 can charge on a Gen 2 dock, but some functionality, like charging state LED notifications, won’t be available.
The Oura Ring can take up to 80 minutes to fully charge.
Yes, you can plug the Oura Ring’s charging dock into your phone’s wall charger.
No, the Oura Ring requires its charging dock to charge and cannot top up its battery through wireless charging.
