Anyone know if Pixel 4 supports this?
According to this [reddit.com], it may.

Unofficially, the Pixel 4 supposedly supports fast charging with third-party chargers that are capable of the EPP, but the experiences in that topic suggest otherwise.

Again, unfortunately, the haphazard way the manufacturers have approached fast charging has been compounded by the lack of transparency, leaving users in the lurch.

Lastly, since this model doesn't come bundled with a wall adapter, a reminder that basic 5W BPP charging requires a minimum 10W (2A) adapter.

Any sort of "fast" charging beyond that level calls for an even more powerful QC or PD adapter. Most on the market utilize QC, but there are a few that are PD input.

Inductive charging is a less efficient process, and the power requirements have also been a source of confusion for users.

I just bought the ravpower fast wireless charger and it charges my xs max at 5w. I think you are right.
how do you know the wattage when you do wireless charging?

I do have a circular one and it works FANTASTICALLY. I can't think of the brand off the top of my head though cause I got it as a gift and I don't have it with me atm.
Oh ok good to know... well this Anker one is kaka. Smilie
Works great 80% of the time, but when it shows charging and you wake up with a near dead battery, it's unacceptable. =/

Picked up a couple of these last time they were one sale. Use these on iPhone X and XS Max...meh. touchy for placement. If you really need a wireless charge go for it. Otherwise, wait for something better.

Depends on the case. My GS8+ is in a plastic case and it works just fine. Even my girlfriend's iPhone, which is in a bulky Otterbox defender case, charged on it. Admittedly it needed to be centered just right, which was a bit of a pain for her giant phone, so we got her one of the inclined chargers instead. But it does work. Certain cases won't work--like ones which have metal in them. The manufacturer usually indicates which.

As someone who keeps his phone for 2 years minimum. I don't care for fast charge because of the toll it takes on your battery in the long run (quicker degradation of maximum capacity). I just need something to lay my phone on overnight. So this is sufficient for me. Repped.

Thank you for that info. It's disappointing but maybe the reduced heat from the forced slower rate will improve battery longevity. Still, there should be an option in the settings to choose whether you want the full rate you used to get.
Hey, just did some new testing. I'm not sure what changed, but the flat pad I linked earlier does actually still quick charge my 8 plus. I guess I didn't try enough kinds of cables and wall adapters with both usb power meters. Just letting you know

Okay this might get a bit lengthy so I'm gonna try to keep it as short and informative as I can while not going into things I'm not educated in.

For starters, about Anker:
Anker has and will always have in my opinion some of the best quality products and customer service I've ever experienced. I've only had two items out of the many I own give me issues, and within a week, I had a replacement free of charge. Every thing else I have is still working amazingly (including a 10' Micro USB cable I've had for about 4 years and use daily)

Now for this product and related info.

I have this charger, and I paired it with a $12 Anker QC 3.0 wall adapter for a total cost of around $20. For my Galaxy Note 8 it will charge it from 30% to full within an hour, not using Quick Charge. I have a waterproof case on my device so it's not necessarily thin and I have no issues with the wireless charging functionality with this charger.

Using QC it will charge my phone from dead to full in about 40-50 minutes, wirelessly.

Now about Quick Charge. Unless you absolutely need it, turn it off on your device. I usually only charge my phone at night, so I don't use it because I don't need to. And I carry a battery bank with me almost always so if I need to recharge in the middle of the day I can.

Quick Charge creates a lot more heat, therefore degrades your battery a lot faster than if you were to use the normal charging mode. And using a wireless charger AND quick charge is going to heat your whole device as well as your battery, and possibly the table it's sitting on. I'm not saying it's hot enough to catch fire, but still, heat=degridation with electronics usually. Especially batteries. And since almost every phone now a days doesn't have a user replaceable battery... you get the picture.

Don't let this scare you away from using QC, it's an awesome technology that does work, but use it intelligently if you want to enlogate your devices lifespan.

Code added to IOS 13.1.x and up

function check_fast_charging {
if (charging_fast_in_a_wireless_charging_pad) then:
call run_a_battery_consuming_app_in_the_background_to_charge_slowly()
else:
call whatever_just_charge_it()
}

When did $1.50 off become worthy of the front page?
I'm sure you know the answer- when they can publish a commissioned referral link. Those Qi chargers on ebay are less than $4 from China

You're right that there isn't a data exchange handshake, but wrong that an OS level change can't prevent fast charging for some Qi standards. This is not related to the optimized battery charging setting.
A new fixed-frequency regulation was Apple passed with iOS 13.1. Only a few select wireless chargers from Belkin, Mophie, Native Union, Anker and Logitech that are sold through Apple Stores and support the fixed-frequency voltage that Apple recommends deliver the full 7.5W wireless charging speeds.

MacRumors notes that Apple refers to the fixed-frequency 7.5W charging as "Apple Fast Charging," but the technology was added to the Qi standard last year so it's not something that should fall under the Apple MFi program.
That's not entirely true. Since 13.1, Apple only allows charging over 5 watts to Extended Power Profile (EPP) chargers, and is not a brand whitelist.

An EPP Charger is considerably more expensive than a basic power profile one. At least double the price.
