How to use Wireless PowerShare on the Galaxy S10

Last modified : Mar 06. 2019

The S10 allows device-to-device charging without the need for a charger. You can also charge your S10 and another device at the same time.

Optimised battery performance

The S10 features a much larger battery, giving it longer battery life and faster app launch.

 

The in-built machine intelligence learns your behaviour, so can automatically adapt to power-saving modes and restricts less frequently used apps to maintain power for longer.

If the battery on your device is getting low, automatically transfer power from your S10. Simply activate “Wireless PowerShare” on your notification panel, then place the other device on the centre of your S10 with their backs facing.

Please 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.
