Wireless PowerSharing Note10 to Galaxy Watch



When you're low on battery, it's simple to get a boost with power sharing. To use Wireless PowerShare, place your Galaxy S series , Note, or Z Flip facedown on a sturdy surface, like a table. Then place the device you need to charge in the center of the back of the phone. If it has a display, the charging screen should appear, or in the case of Galaxy Buds+, the charging light should illuminate.

Wireless PowerShare is available on:

  • Phones : Samsung or other brand smartphones with Qi wireless charging.
  • wearables such as Galaxy Watch Active2, Galaxy Watch Active, Gear Sport, Gear S3, Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Buds+, and Galaxy Buds.

Note: The location of the charging coil may vary by device model. You may need to adjust the devices until they connect with each other properly.

Whilst your device is plugged in using wired charging, you can charge another device at the same time.

Follow the below steps to activate dual charging:

1 Pull down the notification panel on yourdevice and tap the Wireless PowerShare icon to switch it on.
2 Put the centre of the device back-to-back with another device.
3 The screen will confirm once the devices have connected. Tap “OK”.
4 If you pull down the notification panel again, a message will show that it is charging the connected device. The Wireless PowerShare icon will also appear on the status bar or on your Always On Display panel.
1 The efficiency of wireless charging depends on the distance between the charging coils embedded in the devices. You may need to adjust the position of the devices until they connect with each other properly.
2 Depending on the type of accessories or cover being used on your device, the Wireless PowerShare feature may not work properly. It is recommended to remove any accessories and protective phone covers before using this feature.
3 check that the back of the devices are free from dust, dirt or moisture before using Wireless PowerShare.

Note: Only devices that support wireless charging can be charged using this feature. Charging speed or efficiency may vary depending on the device’s condition or surrounding environment.
