Fix slow wireless charging on your Pixel phone

Use the steps on this page to fix problems with slow wireless charging on your Pixel phone.

Check for overheating

  • Let your phone cool off and try again.
  • Make sure that the phone isn’t in direct sun or next to another heat source.
  • Remove the phone from its case.
  • Check to see if chargers are blocking airflow to your phone.
  • Keep the screen dark while charging.

Check apps and connectivity

  • After cooling your phone, restart it and try again. There might be apps running in the background that drain power.
  • Check strength of wireless and mobile coverage. If coverage is poor, the device will likely burn more power.
Tip: Try turning on aeroplane mode when charging in poor connection areas.

Check physical problems

  • Remove any metallic or magnetic objects, like ring holders, Apple MagSafe or PopSockets, from the back of your phone.
  • Make sure that your phone is aligned correctly on the wireless charger.

Tip: When adaptive charging is active, slow charging over 80% is expected. Your phone will be fully charged before you wake up.
