It finally happened, guys, wireless charging on the new 1 plus 8 pros. And charges at 30 watts, which is among the fastest wireless charging out there.
And I think that’s why a lot of people don’t use wireless charging because it is so much slower than wire charging. But this looks serious.
Ventilation is proper and it looks like a nice-sized fan on the back.
We’re going to do something interesting instead of putting it up against other wireless chargers. I’m going to see how fast this new work charge, 30 wireless charging is against the iPhone 11 pro Max’s wire charging with the 18-watt charger that comes in the box.
just for a point of reference on a faster charging Android phone.
All of these phones are completely drained. As you can see, I’m leaving all of the normal functions on with connectivity, notifications on, and everything, because this is how you would charge the phone.
Of course, a ton of notifications come flooding in I turn them on because I want them to be on since that’s how most people top up their phones, including myself.
So after 5 minutes, the iPhone is at six percent. Not bad at all. And the Galaxy s 20 ultra is at an impressive 14 percent. And it says super-fast charging 2.0, which I’m not sure I’ve seen that before.
And the 1 plus 8 pro is at 8 percent. So already ahead of the iPhone’s wired charging at 15 minutes, the iPhone is at 23 percent, which is respectable.
But the Galaxy s 20 ultras already at a whopping 40 percent. I don’t remember it being this fast before, so that’s awesome. And the 1 plus 8 pros at 26 percent. So that is very impressive for wireless charging.
So far, so good. Watch charging the S 20 ultra is at 71 percent.
So that much charge and a half an hour are incredible. The 1 plus 8 pro is at 47 percent. So almost hitting that claimed 50 percent in 30 minutes. I’m sure it varies with each test, but fantastic for wireless charging at 45 minutes.
The iPhone is at 66 percent charge, so keeping up at a good pace. But the ultra ham is at 96 percent charge, which I’m really blown away by.
I don’t think I’ve ever had it charge this quick. And on the 1 plus 8 pros, we have 70 percent now. So just ahead of the iPhone’s wired charging, which again is impressive, at 51 minutes, the Galaxy s 20 ultra finishes at 100 percent.
This is a surprise because I’ve seen other tests that take much longer and the phone is relatively cool. This is the largest battery at 5000 million hours.
So think about how impressive that is. After 1 hour, the iPhone 11 pro max has a 78 percent charge. So it looks like it’s slowing down.
The 1 plus 8 pro is now at 91 percent. So it takes a commanding lead over the iPhone’s wired charging and even has a larger battery at 4510 million hours.
While the iPhone 11 pro max has a 3969 million power battery. So that shows you what a leap this is in wireless charging.
Ten minutes later, the iPhone has an 84 percent charge. So it’s literally crawl charging now. And the 1plus pro is almost done at 99 percent. So it’s going to finish at any time now. It gave me no indication that it was done.
So it could have finished faster. So we could call it a full charge at one hour and 11 minutes, which is really impressive.
Most of the time you would need at least twice the time to get other smartphones to 100 percent with wireless charging. The phone is slightly warm, but not hot whatsoever. So heat management is done right.
I’m glad that one plus waited to bring this level of wireless charging to their customers.
The only downside is that this work charging is proprietary. So you have to buy this charger to take advantage of these speeds. But it’s an awesome option. Nevertheless, the iPhone is still charging at 91 percent after an hour and a half. 30 minutes later at 2 hours. It’s still at 95 percent.
And usually, it’s finished by now. I’ve done this test before where it finishes right around this time or a little bit earlier.
So I’m not sure why this is happening. In fact, I checked again at 2 hours and 16 minutes and it still wasn’t done. It finished at two hours and 23 minutes. So that took a lot longer than usual.
But even if the iPhone took 2 hours to complete charge, the one plus a work 30 wireless charging is basically twice as fast as 100. Then the iPhone. 11 pros wired charging.
And this is what I’m happy to see. 20/20 looks like the year to bring fast speeds to wireless charging, truly making wireless.
Charging convenient kudos to 1 plus on this 1. Let me know what you think about the 1 plus a pro’s wireless charging in the comments below.
