How to fast charge your Galaxy phone or tablet

Galaxy S22 Ultra  is fast charging

If your phone or tablet just died, or if it's about to, it isn't the end of the world. You can charge it back to full power in no time by using a fast Samsung  charger. You can use Fast charging, Super fast charging, and Wireless charging on your Galaxy. If you need replacement chargers you can purchase them from our website.

Note: Only use Samsung-approved charging devices. Samsung accessories are designed to maximize the battery life for your phone and tablet. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and cause damage.

Charging the device

Before you start charging, make sure you are using the correct charger for your phone. When you're ready, all it takes is three easy steps to get your phone charging at top speed.

  1. First connect your USB cable to a charging adapter, and then insert the other end of the USB cable into the USB port on your phone.

  2. You can then connect the adapter into a power source.

    Note: For the fastest charging time, connect your adapter to a power outlet. Plugging the USB cable into a computer or another device will lengthen the charging time.

  3. When your phone is finished charging, disconnect the USB cable from your phone, and then remove the adapter from the power source.

Note: If your phone is not charging, there are a couple things that could be causing the problem. However, if your fast charger doesn't work at all, it should be replaced. If it's under warranty, you can request service. If not, you can purchase a replacement Samsung charger from our website.

Fast, Super fast, and Fast wireless charging

Most Galaxy phones and tablets can use the fast charging technology in Samsung chargers, and most phones support Fast wireless charging when you really need your device to be up and running again. When you plug your device into a Samsung Fast Charger, your phone will automatically turn on the Fast cable charging feature. This feature should be on by default, but you can also turn it on manually.

Super fast charging is only available on select device, and you will need to use a 25W or 45W Samsung-approved adapter.

  1. To use a charging feature, first navigate to and open Settings, and then tap Battery and device care.

  2. Tap Battery, and then tap More battery settings.

  3. Tap the switch next to Fast charging, Super fast charging, or Fast wireless charging. Only the charging speeds your device supports will show up here.

  4. To start Fast charging or Super fast charging, connect the USB cable to the phone or tablet, and then plug the USB power adapter into a power outlet.

    To start Fast wireless charging, just place the device on a supported wireless charger.

    The device will briefly indicate that it has started charging, the speed, and how long it will take to reach a full charge. After a moment it will just say that it is charging and how long until it is full.

  5. Once the battery is fully charged, you may disconnect the charger from the device and from the outlet.

Note: Not all devices support 45W charging, however your device will automatically choose the best charging speed it supports when plugged into a higher rated charger.
