Galaxy S10 wireless charger certified by the FCC with 15W output power

28 January 2019
Samsung's old - and new - wired Adaptive Fast Chargers also put out 15W.

I Just read it after answering to you!

Shanti Dope, 28 Jan 2019If I'm giving them my hard-earned $1000, then it better have it.I'd gladly pay $1000 and not even have that as a consideration as it's not needed. The adaptive fast charger works great.

The heat from the wireless charging comes from the lacking efficiency of the magnetic coupling. (In principle wireless charging is like an old transformer BUT without the for the efficiency crucial iron core).

Fast charging of batteries will in it self in the right circumstances (and this is crucial!) not be bad BUT this goes for temperatures well below 30 degrees Celsius AND not beyond about 50% of the capacity.
Also have a look at e.g. this https://eskerahn.dk/?p=2857 , and its source-links.

EskeRahn, 28 Jan 2019Uh, people should really be careful with this, if they want to u... moreThen why don't they make their batteries to have multiple chambers for faster charging?
It's the higher voltage that causes the phone batteries to heat up much, so instead of increasing the voltage, might as well increase the current instead, like what SuperVOOC is having (5V/10W).
Besides, they could allow multiple connection points to the battery to allow multiple paths of electricity to flow inside of it to let it charge faster, so you're getting faster charging speeds without harming the battery that much, if it does at all.

EskeRahn, 28 Jan 2019Interesting I was not aware of that, Thanks. :) Preferably it... moreYeah, it would be cool if they added a feature where you could schedule the times it should and shouldn't fast charge

Nothing wrong with the current speeds of battery charging Samsung is using.
Is the super duper charging an actual deciding factor when purchasing a phone? Really?

cog, 28 Jan 2019So Samsung feel a kind of proudly about the 15W!!! Lol what a joke!Remember that they still use QC 2.0

EskeRahn, 28 Jan 2019Now if only fast chargers came with a slow/fast switch, so we co... morethere is a toggle in samsung battery section which does exactly what you want!

Walter C. Dornez, 28 Jan 2019Samsung does allow for that option. You could turn off the fast ... moreInteresting I was not aware of that, Thanks. :)

Preferably it should be mechanical on the charger, or a 'button' that appeared on screen every time it was plugged in.
"Settings, Device Maintenance, Battery, Ellipsis, Advanced settings"
is a bit deeply buried - but at the least the option IS there. :)

Shanti Dope, 28 Jan 2019Anything faster please? 15W is so 2016! OnePlus's Warp Charge ... moreOthers are faster. But at least it's fast enough. And with that they offer some of the safest battery standards around now. And claim to lose much less capacity over a year or two compared to others.

FaceGle, 28 Jan 2019I hope, the next Samsung wireless charger will charge your phone... moreWell when they bring graphene batteries in a year or two hopefully those will charge up to 5x faster.
Like 20-40 fully charged. Don't know what speed all be used, method used, or capacity to a little variance in my guessing.

FaceGle, 28 Jan 2019I hope, the next Samsung wireless charger will charge your phone... moreman that's crazy lol wireless charging isn't efficient as the cable one, for now, so it's nearly impossible to achieve

Walter C. Dornez, 28 Jan 2019Not really sure how to feel about thisNow if only fast chargers came with a slow/fast switch, so we could use the same charger, and put it in fast mode when needed only, that would be ideal.
