We are moving from the 10-20W fast-charging era to the 40-50W realm, and can only be all the better for it. Samsung’s 18W charging system tops up the Note 9’s 4000mAh battery in less than two hours but that number is about to get greatly improved with Note 10’s support for 45W charging.
Looking at the charging log was also pretty telling, as 15 minutes after starting from depleted battery state, it was already at 36%, and 50 minutes after the start it hit 95%, trickling down slower from there.
There is an even faster charging system on the market – Oppo’s 50W Super VOOC – that is able to fully charge the 3400mAh battery of the Find X Lamborghini Edition in 35 minutes flat.
For now, 45W will more than suffice on the Note 10, and we can reasonably expect to be able to completely charge its big battery for about an hour, twice shorter than the one on the Note 9. The black version of the 45W charger carries product code EP-TA845XBEGWW, while the white one is with product code EP-TA845XWEGWW.
For those worried about the state of the battery after these insane speeds, Huawei was quick to mention that Super Charge 2.0 has a multi-step safety system built in, and is again certified by Germany’s TÜV authority, so we’d wager to guess that Samsung hasn’t left things here to chance as well.
