Does your Android phone have the helpful wireless charging feature but you find the phone charging slowly on fast wireless charger? This is a problem that some users have reported, especially those with Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. If you have one of these two handsets, or any other Android phone with a similar problem, try the troubleshooting steps below.
Fix Phone charging slowly on fast wireless charger
Enable fast charging
This is the first step or check to try to fix the slow charging on fast wireless charger. You need to enable the feature on your phone by going to Settings>Battery and look for fast charging to enable it (if disabled).
Remove phone case
If your phone has any casing, remove it and check if it resolves the phone charging slowly on fast wireless charger problem. Sometimes the phone case can hinder the phone from charging as it should, and if this works, replace the case and get one that works with the wireless charger.
Check your charging pad
If you’re using a wireless fast charging pad, you may have set it up easily but you need to make sure it supports wireless fast charging so it can work. You can use the same charger and cable your phone came with to avoid this issue going forward.
Boot into Safe Mode
If the phone charging slowly on fast wireless charger problem persists, it could be caused by third party apps. Booting into Safe Mode will help determine whether third party app or apps are causing the problem as it temporarily disables them. To enter safe mode, do this:
- Press and hold the power key and volume down button until the manufacturer logo displays
- Release the power key and press and hold volume down button until the phone completely reboots
- Once rebooted, the phone will display Safe mode at the bottom left side so check if its now charging properly on your fast wireless charger. If it does, a third party app is causing it to charge slowly so you can rule out which app it is and delete or uninstall it
As a last resort, if no other method works, perform a factory reset but back up your data before you do. To do this:
- Open Settings>Backup & Reset
- Tap reset phone>OK to confirm
