Is Samsung’s 45W Note 10+ charger not worth $49.99?


24, 2019

We have written earlier about the impressive performance of the bundled 25w fast charger for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 10+, which can fully recharge a flat phone in about an hour.

Samsung is also offering the option of ordering a 45w charger for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, which we expected to do even better.

We may be mistaken about that, however, as a recent test suggests the 45w charger is not meaningfully faster than the 25w charger.

DroidSans tested Galaxy Note 10 with a 25W charger, the Galaxy Note 10+ with a 25W charger, and a second Galaxy Note 10+ with a 45W charger, all charging from flat, against each other.

In the test, the Note 10+ charged to 67% with the 25w charger after 30 min, while the 45w charger managed a slightly higher 73%.

When the 45w charger reached 100% the 25w charger was also very close at 96%. In the end, the Note 10+ with the 25w charger was only 10 minutes slower to 100% than the 45w charger.

Given that the 25w charger is included in the box, it seems pretty difficult to justify the $49/ €50  expense of the optional 45w accessory.
