These reviews do confirm it does operate well.

No Galaxy S20 Ultra testing? I assume this supports 45W charging? But doesn’t Samsung also consider 25W super fast?

I’m in the market for a better USB meter, I can do basically just cable testing with my years-old meter.

Meter’s manual

Green = Supported. So all those purple ones not.

Hey @Insider
Yes, S20 and S20 Plus charges against 25w with the S20 Ultra coming in at 45w.
None of my current PD chargers including PowerCore or PowerDrive will work with my S20 Plus - I’m still crying about it several months after buying the phone :rofl:

That’s unfortunate, the good thing is Samsung sell their 45w on their site but they are not usually on sale. I saw a review where you only save a few minutes by using the 45w. I can look for it if you are interested

Yeah, I question the accuracy of that report…

They still don’t charge it at all?! That’s crazy.

That’s sad to know, but you did pre-order before any substantial reviews so there’s higher risk with that.

I’m still stuck with OnePlus and only does 10W from other than DASH. My phone is dying, I’m guessing is just accumulation of salts+rust corrosion of any device kept in a pocket, it seems to be attacking Wifi and BT first, cellular unaffected. My laptop (6 years old) is dying slowly, there’s a crack forming from one corner, once it gets to Mobo then its dead.

So I’m thinking I have about £1000 of gadget spend by end of this year and thinking of dual-port chargers for laptop+phone. So when the gadget dies I know what to get.

I really don’t want a fixed non-international single-port 65W charger.

Not even with an A to C cable for 10W? Powercores even PD ones keep a legacy A port.

Nope, not via C @Insider
It will charge on all A port chargers I have.

Does this charger appeal to you at all? Or do you want dual ports?

Hey @professor
I can charge via A, just not C.
Ill be interested, although won’t hold my breath, to see how the new III Nano fares.

As a rule I have pretty consistent battery usage on my phone so a “slow” 10w wireless charge at night suffices.
Just would have been nice to have the ability to 25w charge for a rapid boost if required.
Obviously I could use the a Samsung charger, but hey, that’s not what we do here right?

IQ3 can of course under the hood stealthily evolve and have more tweaks to present more protocols.

As the Samsung phones out a few months now, you never know, the IQ3 latest version in the Nano may be do the trick.

So at present you get 10W wired from A-C , but remember 10W wired is faster than 10W wireless. So you’d still be carrying a Powercore to get 10W wired, just like I do with my 18W OnePlus only does 10W if it doesn’t see it’s own cable and its own charger. 10W is ample for most situations, my one bundled OnePlus charger is in a spot in home where I more often want a fast charge before going out.

Discounts to $25?

That honestly would be pretty good deal

If it’s launching at $40 then $32-33 is in next week or two.

$25 would take a while.

It would make sense to bundle with the 60W 26800. For… $99.

Higher wattage chargers don’t cost more in electronics, they cost more in more heatsinks so larger. Higher wattage in portable chargers cost you in less effective output, so less energy out in return for faster.
