How to use Wireless PowerShare on the Galaxy S10

The Galaxy S10 allows device-to-device charging with other Qi enabled devices, without the need for a charger. You can also charge your Galaxy S10 and another device at the same time.

Optimised battery performance

The Galaxy S10 uses artificial intelligence that learns your behaviour, so that it can automatically adapt to power-saving modes and restrict less frequently used apps to maintain power for longer.

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

 

A blue flashing light appears on the back of your S10 when Wireless PowerShare is activated, and will turn red during charging. Once the device is fully charged, the light will turn off.

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.

Why is Wireless PowerShare not working properly?Click to Expand

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.
