USB Type-C Accessories By OnePlus Found To Be Out Of Spec

By 01:46 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments

The Google engineer Benson Leung, who's been testing Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C accessories lately, reported that the two OnePlus products are out of spec and can harm your device's port, Personal Computer (PC) hub or charger plug.

The reason turns out to be a incorrect resistor in both the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable and the Universal Serial Bus (USB) adapter - it's a 3A identifier resistor instead of "Default Universal Serial Bus (USB) Power", required by the Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C spec. Apparently this mishold may harm either the device or the plug/port on the other end.

Benson Leung recommdiscontinue to utilize only the cables and charger plugs that came bundled with your device and not to mix them with other gadgets. If you need such accessories, he reviewed quite a few over Amazon and the one with 5* rating from Leung are the ones you should be looking to purchase if you want to be sure they are spec-compliant.

While the Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C standard is targeted for a mass spread over the next couple of years, we guess you should all be careful with the first batch of accessories, as mistakes are obviously possible.
