Samsung Introducing 12W Wireless Charging With Galaxy S10

It looks like Samsung is introducing 12 Watt Fast Charge 2.0 wireless charging with the Galaxy S10 line of phones. Other Samsung phones, like my Galaxy Note 9, top out at 7.5W fast charging.

In general, I use wireless charging for about 90 percent of my phone charging needs. Typically I only resort to wired charging when the battery is relatively low and I need the phone recharged quickly prior to an extended time away from any charging source (such as a long meeting).

As it did with the release of the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung is releasing a Duo Pad wireless charger that charges phones up to 12W on the left, and another phone or Samsung smart watch on the right. Companies like Anker apparently already make wireless charging pads capable of delivering up to 15W over wireless, so looks like I’ll be switching out all of my wireless pads once the Galaxy Note 10 gets released later this summer.

Maybe someday Samsung’s software will catch up to its hardware (instead we’re likely to be seeing them trying to make Bixby a thing until the end of time).
