Don't just buy any 45W+ PD charger for your Samsung Galaxy Note10+

25 August 2019
You likely won't be getting the full 45W charging speed and here's why.

I thought I have done enough research before I get a Samsung device, turns out I'm not. It is until now I realized that the charger I bought (with a maximum output of 40w, PD and QC protocol supported) does not have PPS protocol even though it still can charge my A73 in a less efficient way. So if anyone is seeing this, make sure the charger you purchase does support PPS protocol or else it will charge at a slightly slower rate.

Going through all the trouble to find a charger that have PD 3.0 and PPS support, just to find out that it may support max 3A only. Anyone can suggest me a charger that have at least 2 port and can fast charge s22 ultra at 45W? Thanks in advance

Hi, this issue should raise up again in the recently launch S22+ and S22 Ultra.

Need to Alert buyer dont just simply buy a PD3.0 PPS charger with max 3A rating regardless of the total watt e.g. 65W, 100W 120W, etc...

Samsung 45W super fast charging 2.0 need 10.5V @ 4A++?? ( or 9V 5A ?)

those expensive charge with max 3A rating will get 9V 3A = 27watt only.

very informative and right to the point. thanks a lot.

I noticed that you may be looking for a great PPS charger supporting Samsung S20 Note 20 or Note 10 Plus. Below is a great option. They are one of the first companies pioneer in PPS technology:

Mynamenick, 02 Dec 201945watt charger suck, it can't full charge my note 10 plus a... moreThat's how these work. Both the 25W and 45W are supposed to charge a phone from 0 to full charge in about 57 minutes. Because the charge is variable. In the meantime, during the 57 minute time, the 45W will be far ahead of the 25W, but then will begin slowing down to avoid frying the battery.

I watched a side by side comparison using two identical phones and one 25W and one 45W. At 10 min, the 45W had about an 8% lead. At 20 min, it had jumped to 10%. At 30 min, the lead was 11%. At 40 min, the lead had dropped back to 10%, and by 50 min, the 45W was at full charge, and the 25W was at 91% Obv an unscientific test.

What did you use to measure the charging voltage and current? Thanks.

This was a very interesting read, but this is still way more complicated than it should be.
I currently have a OnePlus3T and really wanted my next phone (Pixel 4a) to have these move advanced charging technologies. I am not holding out much hope for a mid-level phone like the Pixel 4a to have something like this :(

And this reality is very real.
Just look at apple fans which starve on streets for several months just to save for new apple phone.

Also another website mentions a Aukey 74w charger that they believe has the same proprietary as the orginal.

GVera, 26 Aug 2019This article explains the issue https://batteryuniversity.... moreThanks for the article, my question would be: did this info age!? Its true that the batteries concept maybe didnt change but we don't know after 9 years how many of these concepts are still holding.
After several years of suffering with my batteries (Since my first smart device, HP PDA) I want to see where the problem is.
My PDA was at fault. Everytime the battery completely depletes the system format.

But my Notes always suffered from loosing battery fast while non of my colleagues at work has a problem. The question is:
Is it because I am a rare employee who works across a huge hospital that has issues with WiFi, including passing by MRI areas?
Or, are there people whom there bodies drain batteries?

Just to know: I have "7 on" 16 hours shifts, I dont use any social media or video.

I am trying my Note 10 plus with No fast charging + Night mode + power saving and for now since 7 am I reached 28% 10 pm. I will try a full day No wifi and see what happens.

My Note 4 and 8 would barely make it to 5 pm

Interesting science between simply plugging in to the power outlet and the mobile getting charged.

I am happy with the 5w/1a charger that came with my 80$ device... x-x

I've read a 45 W car charger review recently, guy tried charging a Dell laptop - didn't charge at all as it required something like 15 or 20V (which the charger was capable of but the car's battery was the culprit) :P

Nice article, very nice. At our lab here we're still discussing whether we are going to build a 45W PD3.0 PPS charger or not to target the new Samsung devices.
