What is Wireless PowerShare?

Wireless PowerShare is basically the wireless reverse charging feature in Samsung’s latest flagships smartphones starting from the Galaxy S10 series and after that all the smartphones. This feature can actually charge up your Galaxy Watch, Buds, or just another Qi-enabled phone just by laying it on the back of the smartphone, in our case Galaxy S20 series.

Most Qi-compatible devices will work with this feature so it’s not just limited to Samsung devices. You can wirelessly charge iPhones with this if you so desire. This feature would come in handy when you’re in a pinch and just need enough charge to fire up a dead smartphone, though.


Do keep in mind that it’s not fast wireless charging by any stretch of the imagination. It’s at 4.5W which, when you put into context, is half of what Qi wireless chargers are normally rated to, which is 9-10W.
