Android Authority ran tests to see how quickly the Google Pixel 6 could charge. With the supplied separately supplied adapter, the Pixel 6 charges a maximum of 22W, and takes an average of 13W from 1 to 100%. It takes about 2 hours to fill the 5000 mAh battery.
The Android website wanted to know how true Google’s claims about charging the Pixel 6. The tech giant claims that the phone ‘charges up to 50% in 30 minutes’ and in addition, the product page Mentioned multiple times to the official barns For this phone, a 30W version of Google with Power Delivery 3.0 and PPS. According to Android Authority, the phone displays the message “2 hours until battery full” when plugged into the charger, which doesn’t seem to be in line with the numbers Google is coming up with.
Android Authority Meldt Based on its testing with the official charger, Google delivers on its promise to charge the battery to 50% in 30 minutes. For this, the phone does not use the full 30 watts provided by the charger, but about 22 watts. This is the highest power the Pixel 6 uses. After 50 percent, the power goes through a nice drop. It drops to a plateau from 15 watts to 75 percent, then 12 watts to 85 percent and then continues to drop below 5 watts for the last straw. All in all, the phone takes about an hour and a half to reach the last 50 percent. According to the site, the phone charges at a rate of 13 watts for a full charge. Android Authority has created multiple schemas with their test results.
Android Authority has also compared the phone to the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, on the same Google adapter. Samsung also supports Power Delivery 3.0 and PPS, and has a battery with the same capacity as the 6 Pro: 5000mAh. In short, the S21 Ultra initially consumes 25 to 28 watts, and although it draws progressively less power than the adapter, it finishes charging after an hour. The battery gets a little warmer than the Pixel’s.
Another comparison made by the site in the field of transformers. They placed the 30W charger next to the 18W charger that came with the previous Pixels. This shows that using the new 30W model with the Pixel 6 is only ten minutes faster.
Android Authority conducted tests on Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. However, in the tables and graphs you share, it is limited to the 6 Pro, but the conclusions apply to both devices, they say. They also asked Google for a response, but did not receive it prior to publication.
Tweakers are coming soon with a Pixel 6 and 6 Pro review.
