How to add wireless charging to the OnePlus 8

If you’ve just purchased the new OnePlus 8 you may have been wondering “Does the OnePlus 8 support wireless charger?” and unfortunately the answer is no.

However there is a quick and easy way to make your OnePlus 8 compatible with this modern charging method.

1. Wireless Charging Adapters

Always the quickest and cheapest option, a trusty wireless charging adapter can convert your OnePlus 8 into a wireless charging smartphone in seconds. We recommend the following Ultra-Thin Qi Wireless Charging Adapter due to it’s premium build-quality and coil placement.

Set-up is extremely easy, just plug the adapter into your OnePlus 8’s USB-C charging port, tuck the receiver section around the back of your phone as demonstrated in the photo above and you’re good to go! Working with the majority of cases too, this solution provides the best way of utilising wireless charging, without getting in the way of everyday use. What’s more, if you choose to upgrade to another phone without wireless charging at any point, then it’s likely the adapter will work with that phone too.

2. Wireless Charging Cases

Popular handsets without wireless charging as standard, are often accompanied by official wireless charging compatible cases and covers that transform the phone into a modern masterpiece. Unfortunately it seems as though OnePlus has forgotten about this gem of a phone, leaving it with at present no wireless charging case compatible options that feature the adapter built-in. We’ll keep our eyes out for any official or third party cases that might facilitate this feature and update the article accordingly.

3. Wireless Charging Pads

With the adapter in hand you’ll only need one more item in order to charge wirelessly. Coming in many shapes, sizes and orientations, you can be sure to find a wireless charger to suit you and your lifestyle from our extensive range.
