Samsung just unveiled the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra smartphones. As a reminder, the batteries in these three smartphones have capacities of 3,700 mAh, 4,500 mAh, and 5,000 mAh, respectively. In terms of charging, the maximum power available is 25 W in wired mode. Nonetheless, the S22+ and S22 Ultra support 45 W fast charging (via a charger not included). However, unlike the Google Pixel 6, whose rapid charging at 30 W is a lie, the Samsung Galaxy S22 + and Ultra’s 45 W charger do not provide much in actuality.
The measurements are taken by GSMArena site’s writers he used three different chargers to test the charging times of the new S22+ and S22 Ultra: the original Samsung versions of 25 W and 45 W, as well as a third-party charger of 65 W. The first two have the letters PD (Power Delivery) and PPS (Programmable Power Supply) imprinted on them, whereas the third has simply the letters PD.
The Samsung Galaxy S22+ indicates a charging rate of 62 percent after 30 minutes of charging with the 25 W charger; this figure increases to 64 percent with the 65 W charger. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has the same results: 61 percent with the 25 W charger, 60 percent with the 45 W charger. In 30 minutes, the 65 W charger will recharge 65 percent of the Ultra battery.
When fully charged, the findings are identical. For the S22+, it takes 1 hour and 1 minute with the 45 W charger, 1 hour and 2 minutes with the 25 W charger; for the S22 Ultra, it takes 59 minutes with the 45 W charger, 1 hour and 4 minutes with the 25 W charger. Finally, with the 65 W block, the charging time jumps to 1 hour and 2 minutes.
Samsung claims on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Super’s product page: “The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra supports 45 W ultra rapid charging. You receive enough battery in less time than it takes to say hello as soon as you plug it in “..
In reality, the difference between a full charge and a 25 W charge is 5 minutes. In percentage terms, this is an 8 percent difference. In summary, unless you are in a rush, you can save the 50 euros for the 45 W charger and replace it with a 25 W charger for 20 euros…
