When Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 line in February, the company also introduced a new feature called Wireless PowerShare. The feature basically makes your phone a wireless charging platform that can charge another phone, a smart watch, or a pair of headphones.
It is an interesting feature that may not be used very often, but has the potential to save you the day before a long flight when your hearing aids are dying.
Wireless PowerShare is currently available on the following Samsung phones:
We also know thatIt will be compatible with the feature when it is released in late April.
Things to cater for
Galaxy S10 must be responsible for 30 percent or more for Wireless PowerShare to work. This feature is automatically disabled if you fall under this number.
Wireless PowerShare always charges 4.5 W. Yes, it's pretty slow. But remember that Samsung must control the heat generated by wireless charging and there is a battery just below the charging coil.
S10 Will charge any accessory or phone compatible with Qi. All iPhone models, the latest Pixel models and previous Samsung Galaxy phones are all compatible with Qi.
Wireless PowerShare can be used when S10 charges or when fully wireless. Therefore, if you travel frequently and need to charge your smart watch or headphones, you can connect the S10 one to charge it, turn on Wireless PowerShare and then charge your watch while you sleep.
How it is used
Wireless PowerShare does not have its own dedicated application. Moreover, it does not even have its own configuration panel in the configuration program.
It's easy to use: Swipe down from the top of the screen to see the Quick Settings panel and press the Wireless PowerShare button. A pop-up window will appear on the screen telling you how to better align S10 with what you put.
Flip your S10, lower the screen, onto a flat surface, and then place a phone or accessory on the back of your device. I have found that the middle part of S10 Plus is the best place. Wireless PowerShare will be disabled after 30 seconds if it does not detect device loading.
