Wireless PowerShare Feature of Galaxy S10

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 along with S10 Plus and S10e have a unique feature to charge other devices. This feature is known as the Wireless PowerShare and it gives your S10 the power to charge the latest Samsung accessories or any Qi-enabled phone. Let us learn how to use the Wireless PowerShare feature of Galaxy S10.

There are some points that you should always remember before you go ahead and share your phone’s fuel

The Wireless PowerShare feature of Galaxy S10 charges at 4.5 W. This is because charging a battery emits heat and Samsung has managed to control it. Thus let things happen slow and steady, don’t mind the wait.

You will be able to share your charge only with accessories or smartphones that are Qi compatible.

Your S10 should have a minimum of 30% battery life for the Wireless PowerShare feature to work. There is no use trying if you are below this level because the feature turns itself off automatically.
