Find Out Now; Check How fast is wireless charging on smartphones in 2024?

The latest high-end iPhone 15 series and Galaxy S24 family max out at 15 watts when it comes to wireless charging, which means a full charge usually takes more than two hours. Google’s latest Pixel 8 Pro is only slightly faster at up to 23 watts, but in our testing the actual charging time was still more than two hours.

Wireless Charging Speed Comparison

Well, you don’t have to look far: the latest OnePlus 12 supports 50W charging. For that, you would need to buy OnePlus’ proprietary Warp 50 charger, but with that, the company promises a full wireless charge takes merely 55 minutes. This is more than twice as fast as Apple and Google!

And OnePlus is not the only one. Companies originating in China like Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, and Huawei all support 50W wireless charging, but each company uses its own proprietary charger, so there is no universal standard here.

And this year, we actually have a new record holder for fastest wireless charging!

The new Honor Magic 6 Pro supports an incredible 66W wireless charging speeds, so a full 100% top-up takes just over 40 minutes.

In 2024, practically all flagship phones support some form of wireless charging.

The big brands have settled on speeds of around 15 watts, which means it takes roughly around two hours to fully charge your phone. This safe approach ensures is likely all about risk management. With higher charging speeds, you need more advanced cooling systems or a more complicated charger with some sort of cooling, and for whatever reason Apple and Samsung are not willing to risk it.

Companies like OnePlus, Xiaomi and other Chinese phone makers, however, have figured out a way to deliver much faster wireless charging, cutting down top-up times to less than an hour. And not counting Infinix which is sold in limited markets, Honor is the champ with its 66W SuperCharge wireless charger that tops up the Honor Magic 6 Pro fully in just around 40 minutes.

What is your take on all of this? Do you use wireless charging often? And how important would you say fast wireless charging is to you?
