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.
Separate the devices when enough power has been transferred, or wait until the other device is fully charged.
Watch our video below showing how it works.
Please note: This is only available on Galaxy S10 phones and other devices that support Qi wireless charging. If the battery level on your Galaxy S10 drops below a certain level, Wireless PowerShare will automatically turn off.
Whilst your Galaxy S10 is plugged in using wired charging, you can charge another device at the same time.
Follow the below steps to activate dual charging:
Pull down the notification panel on your Galaxy S10 and tap the Wireless PowerShare icon to switch it on. A blue flashing light appears on the back of the S10 when Wireless PowerShare is activated.
If you pull down the notification panel again a message will show that it is charging the connected device. The green Wireless PowerShare icon will also appear on the display bar or on your Always On Display panel.
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.
