Using Wireless PowerShare on my Samsung Phone

Last Update date : Apr 17. 2024

What if you could charge all your devices on the fly, even if you forgot their chargers? It's not too good to be true. With the new Wireless PowerShare feature, your phone can reverse wireless charge another phone, watch, or Galaxy Buds. All you need to do is place the two devices together.

Note: Wireless PowerShare works with most Qi-Compatible devices. This feature may not work with some cases, accessories, or other manufacturers' devices.

Device-to-Device Charging


If the battery on your device is getting low, automatically transfer power from your compatible Galaxy phone. Simply activate "Wireless PowerShare" on your notification panel, then place the other device on the centre of your Galaxy phone with their backs facing. Separate the devices when enough power has been transferred, or wait until the other device is fully charged.
