TL;DR
  • OnePlus has confirmed the OnePlus 10 Pro charging brick in North America will differ from that of other countries.
  • Global models will have an 80W charging brick while NA models will have last year’s 65W charger.
  • OnePlus says this is due to 80W SuperVOOC not supporting North American electrical standards.

One of the star features of the OnePlus 9 series was across-the-board 65W wired charging speeds. That speed allows you to charge your phone from zero to 100% in under 40 minutes.

We already know the OnePlus 10 Pro charging speed will up the ante to 80W speeds. What’s more, OnePlus has confirmed an 80W charger will come in the box with the 10 Pro. However, buyers in North America — including the United States — won’t see that charger.

Instead, OnePlus has confirmed that North American buyers will see the same 65W charger that came with the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. Of course, without an 80W charger, you’ll only see 65W charging speeds on the 10 Pro once it lands here.

The company confirmed this in a forum post (h/t XDA-Developers). In that post, OnePlus staff member “dsmonteiro” explains this discrepancy: “80W SuperVOOC does not currently support 110- or 120-volt AC power — the typical standard for power outlets in [North America].”

In other words, Oppo and OnePlus would need to update SuperVOOC to meet the needs of North America’s electrical standards, and it hasn’t done so.

You might think you could just buy an 80W charger from a third-party seller. However, SuperVOOC is a proprietary standard, so other chargers won’t be able to reach those speeds. Unfortunately, OnePlus 10 Pro charging in North America will be stuck at 65W speeds until OnePlus updates the standard.
