Today sees a wave of Pixel 4 and 4XL reviews. Among them all, the consensus here is that the smartphones’ battery life is pretty bad. However, there is a solution to that. Google has opened up to third-party fast chargers and allows them to work on their handheld devices realeasing this year.

Pixel 3 can only achieve maximum wireless charging speed with Pixel Stand

According to Wireless Power Consortium, the Pixel 4 of Google is listed as having support for Qi wireless charging with 11W of speed. This news was first shared by Mishaal Rahman on Twitter. Last year, we only had up to 3W with the Pixel 3. With the propriety standard on the Pixel stand and some other accessories, that amount can be bumped up to 10W.

The fact that Google never mentions that the Pixel 4 has support for 11W Qi wireless charging while the Pixel 3 can only charge wirelessly at 5W Qi surprises lots of users.

This is a welcoming new feature on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL. While users will care more about the convenience than speed when it comes to wireless charging, an increase in the latter is still a nice addition.

With the Inware app of Dylan Rossel, this tweet even claims a charging speed of 10.8W with the Pixel 4 on the Seneo Wireless Charger WaveStand.

What Pixel 4 users will love the most about this new function is that now, they can have the convenience and the fast speed on something as cheap as a 10W wireless charger bought on Amazon, instead of some charging pads made by Google with a steep price. All you need to check for is the “EPP Certified,” which covers most of the recently-released chargers you can find on the market.
