My Google Pixel 6 phone charges between 3W and 15W with the charger included with the Pixel 6 phone. How can I configure it so that it always charges at max speed? (Or at least whenever I ask for it, eg when I need to it get charged asap before I head out).

Device is not rooted.

  • @beeshyams thanks, in my case the charger and the cable are fine, the issue is that it uses adaptive charging speed, whereas sometimes I don't want adaptive but the fastest speed Commented Oct 30, 2022 at 5:16

    I understand what you want and the answers in the link give reasons why it isn't possible // see Andrew's answer explaining why you can't configure the charging speed or the notification // If your device was rooted, you could put the device in idle charging mode say at around 75% or more

  • The other day, I absent mindedly charged my Pixel 4a with a laptop charger and it charged real fast but I wouldn't repeat that much less suggest that as a solution

    Phone batteries (and many others too) are not designed to be charged at a constant rate. There are intelligent charge controllers specifically built into devices to achieve this variable charging rate behavior. There are phases of charging based on the battery level. Battery temperature and current discharge rate also affect the charging rate. So you won't find a genuine solution to what you are looking for. Only some hacks may work. But they are never recommended if you want your device to live longer. Commented Oct 30, 2022 at 8:01
