The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is the latest flagship of the South Korean company, and among all the changes compared to the Galaxy Note 9, there is an increase in battery (according to the company, thanks to the fact that this device does not have a headphone jack) . In addition to the increase in mAh, fast charging has also been improved, with the possibility of charging the device with a 45W charger, which is sadly sold separately. We carry out different charges with this device and this is how long it took to fully charge the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+.
During testing I have used different charging methods: both wired and wireless. Two accessories have been used: a standard charger and a wireless charging base, which although it is from another manufacturer, has Qi certification and is fully compatible with the terminal.
- Standard charger: 25W adapter with USB C to USB C cable.
- 15W wireless charging charger: Samsung also allows you to charge the Galaxy Note with a charger up to 12W
How long does it take to charge the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
We focus on the 25W charger that comes with the device box. It also comes with a USB C to USB C cable, that is, completely reversible and capable of offering that power that the main charger has. I have charged the device twice to check and compare the results . In this case, I have not wanted to charge it from 0 percent, since on a day-to-day basis I have not managed to reach the minimum battery level. I have always charged the device with a 10-15 battery. In some cases, with 5 percent. That is why I have done these tests with a 10 percent battery in the terminal.
Cable charging: standard charger
FULL LOAD: 100%
|First charge: 10% battery||Arrives in 4 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 18 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 36 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 1 hour and 3 minutes after connecting the charger|
|Second charge: 10% battery||Arrives in 4 minutes AND after connecting the charger||Arrives in 18 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 37 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 1 hour and 4 minutes after connecting the charger|
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 fully charges in about 1 hour and 3 minutes. As you might expect, charging slows down as it reaches completion, as power is used at the early levels. A 10 percent battery charge in just 4 minutes when around 20 percent. Going up from 80 to 90 percent takes about 10 minutes.
In the second load we see very little time differences. Just a few seconds apart in the first levels. Afterwards, it seems to be a bit slower and I have been able to verify that it changed to 80 percent after 37 minutes.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ takes approximately 1 hour and 3 minutes to reach 100%
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 also supports wireless charging. It is compatible with all certified Qi bases and can charge up to 12W . I have charged the terminal with a 15W wireless charger, but since the Galaxy Note 10+ does not reach this speed, it charges at 12W. These are the times and how long it took to load.
FULL LOAD: 100%
|First charge: 10% battery||Arrives in 16 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 58 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 1 hour and 43 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 2 hours and 18 minutes after connecting the charger|
|Second charge: 10% battery||Arrives in 16 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 58 minutes and 35 seconds after connecting the charger||Arrives in 1 hour and 43 minutes after connecting the charger||Arrives in 2 hours and 20 minutes after connecting the charger|
As you would expect, with wireless charging it takes much longer to reach the maximum level, since the power is not the same as with cable. To charge a 10 percent battery it took 16 minutes. the full charge does it in 2 and about 20 minutes. That is, 1 hour and 16 minutes more than cable charging.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ takes up to 2 hours and 20 minutes with a wireless charger.
It is not advisable to use wireless charging to provide the device with battery quickly, but it can be useful if we are going to stay in place for a period of time, such as an hour minutes so that it is at least 50 percent charged . I use wireless charging at my desk when I'm working. Also on my nightstand, as I charge it when I go to sleep to have a full charge the next day.
What is better to load the terminal with? The
The battery is the component of a mobile that degrades the fastest, with what is it advisable to charge the terminal so that the useful life of the battery lasts longer? Does the power of the charger matter? The level of the charger can affect the useful life of your mobile battery, but as long as it is a power greater than that indicated by the manufacturer, or that of the charger that comes in the box. Likewise, the devices are capable of adapting to the charging power, and if you connect the Note 10+ to a 60W charger, it will not charge at this power, but will lower it to the 45W allowed by the terminal. Although it is not recommended to always use this charger.
Of course, official accessories have greater 'security' since they are certified by the company itself. Although this does not mean that the battery life does not decrease over time. Wireless chargers also get a certification called QI, and since they charge at a somewhat lower power, it has somewhat less impact on battery life.
In conclusion, it does not matter what you charge your mobile with (as long as the charger is in good condition), since the terminal is capable of recognizing the power to which it should be fed . Of course, it is more advisable to use the original accessories or a certified adapter that is of equal or less power, both in wired chargers and in wireless charging bases.
