Outfit your OnePlus 3 or 3T with these must-have accessories.
Whether you're a veteran OnePlus 3 owner, or you're just getting started with the brand new OnePlus 3T, you've got the same broad range of accessories to choose from. That's because although these two phones are different on the inside, they have many overlapping features, and exactly the same physical dimensions.
So let's dig in. Check out these all-important OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T that should be part of your arsenal.
- OnePlus 3/3T protective case
- OnePlus 3/3T flip cover
- Aukey 10,000mAh dual port power bank
- Dash Power bundle
- Dash Car Charger
- Orzly 2.5D tempered glass screen protector
OnePlus 3/3T protective case
The official OnePlus-branded case for the OnePlus 3 and 3T comes in six textures, including the famous sandstone finish, a carbon fiber style, and various varieties of wood. Each of them is a little easier to grip onto than the slick metal of the phone, while also protecting the back and sides of the phone from scrapes, drops and impacts.
Each case is precision-cut to fit the OnePlus 3 and 3T, so you're ensured of a snug fit.
OnePlus 3/3T flip cover
If you're after a bit more protection, OnePlus's official flip cover comes in three colors — black, gray and sand — and shields the screen, back and corners of the device from damage. The enclosure itself is made from PU leather with a stitched trim and OnePlus branding around the front. And there's also a credit card holder for your favorite payment method or ID card.
And thanks to the magic of magnetic sensors, the phone will automatically power on when the case is opened up. Flip it closed and the phone instantly enters sleep mode. Simple.
Aukey 10,000mAh dual port power bank
There's no official power bank using OnePlus's Dash Charge standard just yet, but this Aukey 10,000mAh USB battery is the next best thing. It has a combined output of 3.1 amps across two ports — but you should still get an ample 2A or so out of this battery bank, meaning it'll be quicker than a basic power bank or wall charger.
It's small enough to fit in the back pocket of a pair of jeans, and with two USB-A ports built in, you'll be able to charge another device at the same time as your OnePlus 3 or 3T.
The battery charges over micro-USB, and a 1-foot micro-USB cable is included in the box.
Dash Power bundle
The cheapest place to get hold of an official OnePlus Dash Charger and cable — and remember, you'll need both to charge at full speed on your OnePlus 3 or 3T — is the company's own storefront.
The Dash Power bundle gets you another Dash Charger, just like the one in the box, and an accompanying cable in stylish red and white. These will let you charge the phone at up to 4A, giving you up to a day's power in just 30 minutes if the phone's teetering on the brink of a dead battery.
Simply put, this is the fastest way to charge your OnePlus 3, and it doesn't hurt to have a spare around.

Dash Car Charger
Behold, the OnePlus Dash Charger, now in car form.
This adapter plugs into your vehicle's lighter port, and charges your phone at almost the same super-fast speeds as the regular wall plug Dash Charger.
In Dash Charge mode, you'll power up at 3.5A. In regular mode, it's 2A. It's also pretty stylish, with a textured metal grip, and red accents on the USB port. And it comes bundled with another Dash Charge-capable USB-A to USB-C cable, so you can leave one in the car with this charger.
Orzly 2.5D Pro-Fit V2 Tempered Glass Screen Protector
Sure, the OnePlus 3 and 3T both come pre-fitted with plastic screen protectors, but if you want something that feels less slick and plasticky, you'll want to invest in a decent tempered glass screen protector.
We've used several of Orzly's premium tempered glass shields, and their OnePlus 3 and 3T model comes w both black and white fronts — the latter being for the lesser spotted soft gold OnePlus 3.
This screen protector comes rated at 9H hardness — that's harder than a knife — to protect your phone's screen from annoying hairline scratches, as well as more serious drops and abrasions. It also has an oleophobic coating to stop the surface of your screen getting gunked up with fingerprints.
Amazon offers a two-pack of these for a surprisingly decent price.
