Brought one of the 8GB Ram ones from PBTech yesterday loving the phone but man the USB charger that they do include is not a good choice. It's a Samsung Fast charge which looking on their site is $44 the stupid thing is that a cheaper one would actually give a quicker charge.


The one included can only do 5V 2A and 9v 1.67A(Which the OnePlus 5 cannot use) where as there are other ones they sell that will do 5v 2.4A for less money. Someone there brought into the Samsung marketing.

 They should leave the charger in there and then just also throw in the standard ones they are replacing them with.  PBtech etc does that.


What would be better however is if they did just supply the Oppo charger





Yes, that was what I suggested to them i.e. they could have supplied the VOOC charger instead.  I didn't know about the legal requirement to supply an NZ compatible plug.  Ah, well, either way it's still inappropriate from a consumer marketing point of view to sell a phone with an advertised feature set which isn't supported by the substituted plug without specifically mentioning this.  That way you can factor that into the price and make a considered call on advertised price/value.  I guess it's a mute point seeing there should be AU/NZ compatible chargers available shortly anyway.
