Samsung’s latest flagship phones, Galaxy S10 lineup, arrived with many eye-catching features. Aside from the hole punch front camera, Wireless PowerShare is the S10 series’ marquee feature, which will turn your S10 into a wireless charging pad. Although Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the first brand to bring out the reverse wireless charge feature, but it’s a cool new addition, nonetheless.
Can the Samsung Galaxy S10 wirelessly charge any phone/ device?
Based on S10’s large battery, PowerShare can really become a savior when you’re out on the town and your phone is on the brink of temporary death. The only thing you need to do is to place the two devices together. According to the description on Samsung Official site,
“Most QI-compatible devices should work with Wireless PowerShare, but check out the full list of compatible devices below just in case.
Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+
Galaxy S7, S8/S8+, S9/S9+, Note8, Note9
Despite, they only listed Samsung devices here. It works with all the phones who have QI-enabled wireless charging support, for example, iPhoen X, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and more. And Samsung Galaxy S10 can charge watches and earbuds which support QI wireless charging.
However, Wireless PowerShare can only supply charging speed at 4.5W at all time. Don’t rely on such a slow method in your daily charging routine. If you want to wireless charge your QI-compatible accessories, buy a standard wireless charger.
How to use Wireless PowerShare on the Galaxy S10/ S10 Plus?
Wireless PowerShare doesn’t have its own dedicated app, and it doen’t even have its own setting pane in the Setting app. To charge your device, operate as follow steps:
1. Confirm your Galaxy S10 has at least 30% battery, otherwise Wireless PowerShare will not turn on and a message remaining you to charge S10 will pop out.
2. Position the device you want to charge on the rear of your S10.
3. Using two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen to open Quick Settings.
4. Touch WirelessPowerShare, and then follow the on-screen instructions to use it.
When charging begins, you will receive a popup notification and hear a chime. To check on the charging status at any time, touch the notification in the Notification Panel. To stop charging, just separate the two devices from each other.
