And Benson Leung, openly said that the OnePlus USB Type-C Adapter and Cable should be avoided by Nexus users, as the accessories do not match the industry standard, which require a 56kΩ resistor.

Carl Pei, the founder of OnePlus has acknowledged that this is indeed true. In a post at the company’s forums, Pei, explains that the OnePlus USB Type-C Adapter and Cable are safe to use with the OnePlus 2, but they could end up damaging other devices, such as the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, if the power source is of 3A.

The accessories are designed to use a 10kΩ resistor, which only supports a maximum of 2 Amps of power, and should only used with such a power source.

So, keeping that in mind, OnePlus has announced that it will offer refunds for people, who have bought the accessories to be used with third party devices.
