Last Update date : 2016.07.28

Adaptive Fast Charging


Adaptive Fast Charging recharges your Galaxy S7 edge up to 50% in about 30 minutes.*

(*) Based on laboratory testing. Results may vary. Battery power consumption depends on factors such as network configuration, wireless service provider, signal strength, operating temperature, features selected, vibrate mode, backlight settings, browser use, frequency of calls, and voice, data, and applications' usage patterns.

Important: Adaptive Fast Charging is designed specifically to work with the charger that came with your device or the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Use Adaptative Fast Charging


Note: Adaptative Fast Charging works only with the charger that came with your Galaxy S7 or the Adaptative Fast Charging Vehicle Charger.
