An accessory that many Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ owners will want doesn't ship until next month

An accessory that many Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ owners will want doesn't ship until next month
As many of you know by now, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series includes a feature that Samsung calls Super Fast Charging. This means that the Galaxy Note 10 will charge at 25W when plugged into an outlet using the 25W charging adapter that comes with the phone out of the box. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ actually charges up to 45W although the same 25W charging brick found in the Galaxy Note 10 box comes with the Note 10+. There is also a USB-C to USB-C cable that is included with the purchase of either model.

In other words, if you want to take advantage of the full capabilities of the charging technology on the Note 10+, you'll have to purchase the 45W charger separately. If this scenario sounds familiar, that's because Apple does something similar in order to get customers to shell out some additional dough. In the box with the current iPhone models is a 5W charger although the 2017 and 2018 iPhones support fast charging. You can buy an 18W adapter from Apple for $29 if you own an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR.  You will also have to spend an additional $19 (for 1.64-feet) or $29 (6.6-feet) on a separate USB-C to Lightning connector. Earlier this year, there was speculation that Apple will include an 18W charging brick and a USB-C to Lightning cable with the 2019 iPhone models. We should find out as soon as September 10th, the expected date of Apple's next iPhone event according to a screen found on the latest iOS 13 beta.

Galaxy Note 10+ users can pre-order the 45W charger for $49.99; the accessory will ship starting on September 13th

So let's now return to the brand spanking new Galaxy Note 10+. The 45W adapter can be pre-ordered from Samsung's website for $49.99 and will ship by September 13th (the Galaxy Note 10+ will ship on August 23rd). Using the accessory will reportedly take the 4300mAh capacity battery employed by the Galaxy Note 10+ from 0 to 100% in 56 minutes. The charger delivers up to 15 volts and 3 amps and uses a technology known as Power Delivery (PD) for more efficient charging using USB.

Super Fast Charging is more important than ever for Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ users. That's because of the Wireless PowerShare reverse wireless charging feature, which was the subject of an interesting survey conducted by the manufacturer last month. With Wireless PowerShare, Note 10 and Note 10+ users can flip the phone face down and use the rear panel as a wireless charging pad. This will allow them to charge up the Galaxy Buds in their wireless charging case, and any compatible phone (even an iPhone 8 and up). Huawei introduced this with the Mate 20 Pro last year and Apple will supposedly include this feature with the 2019 iPhone models. But since there is no such thing as a free lunch, the battery inside the host unit will be unselfishly sacrificing some of its battery life to charge an energy-depleted device. That means that the host phone might need to be charged up more often depending on how generous the phone's owner is. Remember, Sammy's survey showed that 72% of the public will NOT share their battery life on the first date. On the other hand, 7% said that they would go out on a date with someone in exchange for some of their battery life.

If only the Note 10 were impressive. It was rated below the iPhone for a reason.

No headphone jack and you have to pay extra for the fastest charger. Way to copy some of the worst iPhone traits Samsung! Note to moderators; what I wrote is fact, not trolling.

Headphone jack would have been a problem couple of years ago when wireless headphones were not very good and BT 5.0 is still in it's early stages. Note 10+ still ships with fast charger 25W charger. You need to pay extra for 45W charger. I still think it would have been nice if they had 3.5mm jack but it's not a deal breaker. I'm happy that they put 4300 mah battery, WIFI6, BT 5.0, best cameras in market and best display in market. You say you're not trolling but it's very childish to cry the same things on every Note 10 article.

So true. Some people don't care facts...and just whine when mods block them/delete their comments...

Fact-Neither Samsung nor Apple includes their fastest charger in the box. Fact-the Note 10’s do not have a headphone jack. A dongle is now necessary to use existing headphones that utilize a 3.5MM headphone jack.

Poor Apple fanboy. The Samsung lead gets larger and larger.

Still it's 25W fast charging is faster than 1+7 Pro in reality.

And with Apple, you have to pay $50 for a charger that's slower than Samsung's "slow" Note 10 charger.

Even as a samsung fan myself i absolutely agree with what you said, samsung is following apple traits, the worst of em.

Ok so you do understand that the charger that ships in the box with either Note 10 is 25W right? That's 10W faster than the charger that DOESN'T come with the iPhones for fast charging. So out the box you can charge faster and if you wanna spend extra you can charge insanely fast, better than the Apple way, there's no argument there.

I agree with you for the most part. AT LEAST the included charger is still a good upgrade and is faster than the fast charger you have to buy separately from Apple largely due to their reluctance to get rid of the dated lightning connector. The included connector can charge my note 10+ from 0-100 in an hour which is awesome.

Thats not that bad of a wait. However, I'd not be too surprised if it shipped ahead of that day. Majority of purchases I've made via corporate discount have been shipped aheas of the dates given. First come, first served.

This is not like Apple. Apple includes no fast charger at all. Samsung chargers have been fast capable since the S6. Samsung is including a 25W which is much faster than the last ones. And yes shelling out for an even faster one to me is fair. If you want 0 to 100% in 60 mins, then yes you should pay for that. But the new charger still chargers faster than Apple fastest Mac charger you can use with the iPad. Samsung is not quite being like Apple where, because they still give way more while Apple gives way less.

As per the tests on youtube the current 25 watt charger charges from 0-100 in 64 minutes.

If that is the case, I see no reason to hurt the battery by running a 45W charge on it.

Is it really worth it to spend $50 on an accessory that will decrease your charging time by roughly 8 minutes? Hard pass for me.

17. sissy246

Have to agree I will just stick with the 25w

24. aroutis

Posts: 38; Member since: May 05, 2015

I also agree. I am going to be sticking to my 25W, I am also going to be trying my 2 yold wireless charger (got it for my S8+) and if not satisfied, then I will be getting whatever new one samsung might be rolling out. And that's it.

Not for everyone no. That is largely due to how charging slows as the phone reaches full. The 45w charger shines in situations where you are really hurting and need a quick boost to keep it going if needed though. If that is something you would benefit from than yes. If you are the average consumer and can get by (like me) all day without any issue, then no.

Had to scroll back up and make sure it’s a Samsung article.

That's why I like Huawei and one of the reasons are because I don't have to pay for a faster charger,to use the fast charging technology.

Whereas someone might be intrigued to say that Samsung is copying apple when it comes to the charger thing, one should remember that the 25W charger is already a big update from the one that was given to previous editions of the phone, even from S10. Also, do we really need to discuss that Apple makes you buy a charger and a cable adding to total costs?

and Samsung's included charger is still faster than Apple's "fast" charger you have to buy seperate
