Is it possible to charge an external device using Google Pixel smartphone as a battery? In other words, can I change the charging direction (reverse charge) so I can charge e.g. a laptop using my Google Pixel as power source?

1 Answer 1


Power direction is no longer fixed. This enables the product with the power (Host or Peripheral) to provide the power

Which translates to reverse charging

How efficient charging your laptop would be dependent on the state of charge of phone / laptop , battery capacity of laptop but theoretically yes, you can ( you would need USB cable with male connections at both ends)
