How to Use Wireless PowerShare on Samsung Galaxy S10E Device
It was rumored well before the Galaxy S10 line was announced that the new handsets could have a reverse wireless charging feature. Samsung confirmed that on February 20. The Galaxy S10E, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10 Plus come with Wireless PowerShare and it was a pleasure to discover it. This feature lets you wirelessly charge another compatible device using your handset’s battery.
In other words, with Wireless PowerShare, all you need to do is flip a switch, turn your S10E handset over and place something that supports Qi inductive charging onto the back — such as the case for Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds, or even an iPhone, for example. Then, the magic will happen!
If you have been wondering what Wireless PowerShare is and how you can use it on the Galaxy S10, look no further. This guide will explain everything that you need to know about the feature.
How to Use Wireless PowerShare on Samsung Galaxy S10E Device:
- First of all, you have to pull down the notification panel by swiping down from the top of the screen;
- Then, swipe down once again to reveal the full set of quick toggles;
- It’s time to tap the Wireless PowerShare icon;
- Confirm that the Wireless PowerShare message pops up to ensure that the feature has been activated;
- Flip your Galaxy S10E over and place a Qi-compatible device on top of the back of the phone. Power should be flowing to the device;
- When you’re done, remove the device being charged;
- Then, don’t forget to tap Cancel at the bottom of the Galaxy S10E screen to turn Wireless Power Share off.
Note: In case of using Wireless PowerShare to charge another phone, both devices must be placed with their backs to each other. For the Galaxy Buds, however, just leave the case on the back of the device and it should start charging. You’ll then hear a notification tone once a connection is established.
And since you are using the phone to charge another device, make sure it is charged before you get started. If the battery level falls below 30%, then you won’t have the chance to use the feature. That said, you’ll also be able to charge other devices when the phone is plugged in, essentially turning the S10E into a wireless charging mat.
