The Galaxy Note 10+ will reportedly support 45W fast charging, but you'll need to buy...

  1. Reports that the larger, plus version of the Note 10 would support 45W fast charging arrived several weeks ago. If accurate, it would put the phone in competition with Huawei’s P30 Pro and its 40W SuperCharge technology. It’s also close to Oppo’s 50W SuperVOOC solution, which takes seven minutes to hit 50 percent charge.

    But while speedy 45W fast charging is good news for those intending on buying the Note 10+, reliable leaker Ice Universe writes that Samsung will only provide a 25W charging brick in the box. That’s an improvement over the 15W chargers that come with the Galaxy S10 handsets, but it’ll still leave some fans disappointed.

    Those who want to make full use of the 45W fast charging will need to purchase a compatible charger, which Samsung will be selling separately. Additionally, Ice Universe says the Note 10+ will also support 20W wireless charging, but again this will require the purchase of a separate charger.

    As for the standard Note 10, it appears that it won’t come with 45W fast charging support. This isn’t too much of surprise as it’s also said to lack its big brother’s SD card slot.

    We’ll get confirmation of all the Note 10 details when the phones launch on August 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

    Yet another reason to not buy this phone.

    I am not sure fast charging is actually a benefit, except in extreme cases. Point, we bought 2 phones on exactly the same day, one was charged on a "fast" charger and one was charged on the stock slow charger. Both were charged overnight so there was no need for fast charging. After 18 months the fast charge has a battery health of 89%, and the slow charged phone has a health of 98%. No, not a type.

    Hence, the slow charging seems to be better for preserving battery life. I know this is anecdotal at best, but is it a real phenomena? Should we be avoiding fast charging?

    Fast charging creates a lot of heat. Heat is bad for electronics especially the battery. A good balance is all that is necessary.
