{Disarmed} Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro don t charge with 30 watts

Google Pixel 6

The Google Pixel 6 series was recently unveiled and features a refreshed design, improved camera hardware, Google's in-house Tensor SoC, the latest version of Android, and much more. It's probably the best Pixel device ever. But there are also problems, not only with the camera and the display flickering , but now also with charging.

Now there's one more problem, however - the Pixel 6 series may not be able to charge the 30 watts promised at release, despite Google selling a 30 watt charger that was introduced with the phone.

Reports seem to confirm that the Pixel 6 Pro is unable to charge at 30 watts. The problem is, Google never actually said the Pixel 6 series would charge at 30 watts, instead it sells a separate 30 watt charger and doesn't put a charger in the box. According to research by Android Authority, the top speed doesn't actually appear to be 30 watts.

"Fast wired charge rates are based on using the Google 30W USB-C® charger plugged into an electrical outlet. Compatible with USB-PD 3.0 PPS adapters. Actual results can be slower. Adapters are available separately. The charging speed is based on tests in which the device's battery was discharged to 1% and charged with the separately available Google 30W USB-C® charger. The charging tests were carried out by Google in mid-2021 with pre-production hardware and software using default settings with the device switched on. The charging speed depends on many factors, including usage while charging, the age of the battery, and the ambient temperature. The actual loading speed may be slower. "


In fact, the investigation by Android Authority has shown that the maximum power is up to 50 percent at 22 watts, but the average over the entire charging cycle remains at 13 watts. The Google Pixel 6 series seems to charge to 100 percent in just under 2 hours, but takes half an hour to charge to 50 percent. In other words, it takes almost three times as long to go from 50 percent to 100 percent as it does from 1 percent to 50 percent. After 50 percent, the phone seems to reach 15 watts with around 62 percent battery capacity. Then it drops to 12 watts at 75 percent capacity. Eventually it then reaches 85 percent charge and the power drops to 2.5 watts when the battery is full.

The Pixel 6 series' slow loading speed is a major disappointment. The biggest disadvantage is that you don't even quickly hang the device on the charger for 10 or 15 minutes to get through the day. On the other hand, the device only gets a little warm when charging and that could save the battery in the long term.
