Wirelessly Charge another Device using your Galaxy S10
If you’ve recently picked up the brand-new Galaxy S10 then you’ve come to the right place. Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus are powerful devices filled with neat features. Compared to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S9, I can say that these phones have a lot that’s new. Whether that’s the fingerprint scanner inside the screen, those cameras in the screen, or being able to charge other gadgets with the Galaxy S10. Yes, you’ve heard it right. You can do that right away.
Wireless PowerShare is a new, super-cool feature for the Galaxy S10 phones. The feature lets you use your Galaxy S10 to charge another Qi-enabled device. So you could reverse wireless charge your Galaxy Buds or Galaxy Watch but you could also do it for a Galaxy Note 9 or even an iPhone.
I must though warn you from the very start that PowerShare is hardly a good option for daily charges. It’s more of an emergency choice.
Like it or not, inductive charging is known as being quite inefficient and you will end up losing a lot more charge from the Galaxy S10 than the receiving phone will get. But it’s perfect if you happen to be full and need to revive a friend’s phone for a bit.
Wirelessly Charge another Device using your Galaxy S10:
- To start charging a device using the Galaxy S10, you’ll need to unlock your Galaxy handset;
- Then, pull down the settings menu from the top of the screen;
- You can now expand the settings menu further so all the available icons appear on your S10 display;
- You’ll see the PowerShare icon on the right side towards the bottom. All you must do now is to tap on the icon to turn it blue.
- At this point, your Galaxy S10 device is ready to share its battery. You just have to lay your handset on its face and place the wireless charging side of the device on top of the Galaxy S10 phone.
