OnePlus has added the support for an exclusive Battery Health Engine which powers two key technologies– Smart Battery Health Algorithm and Battery Healing Technology, both of which work towards extending the lifespan and preserving the capacity of the battery.

This ensures that the amount of charge remains in safe range and reduces the probability of dead lithium cells which in turn improves the lifespan of the battery. The Battery Healing Technology continuously repairs electrodes during charging cycles, reducing the damage to anodes and cathodes, hence preserving its battery capacity. To ensure that all this works safely, OnePlus has fitted the OnePlus 10T 5G’s battery system with 13 temperature sensors that work around the clock to detect any change in the phone’s charging temperature, delivering a charging experience which is both fast and safe.
