There are some cases where faster charging will not work:

  • When using a universal wireless charging pad that does not support fast-charging – ex: EP-P5400, P6300, etc.
  • When using the previous model’s Watch charging pad ​– ex: EP-OR500, EP-OR825​.
  • When using the battery sharing function of a smartphone​.
  • When using an OR900 PAD with a charger that does not support PD​ – ex: AFC, QC charger, portable battery pack, PD non-supported USB port, etc.​

Charging time varies by region, settings and environmental factors; actual results may vary.
