What is Galaxy S22 Slow Charging Issue?

Users even report that after using Samsung’s official 45W charger, the device takes around 3 hours for a full charge. Another user said that he even tested the speed by keeping his device turned. After 10 minutes, the device charged only up to 46% from 40%. Users shared their ordeal via Reddit.

User I

I got myself a S22+ last week, but finding the charging speed not per exepctation.

Using 45W Samsung charger, its taking ~3 hours for a full charge.

As I’m typing this, I tested the current charge speed keeping phone in switched off mode. In 10 minutes it has charged from 40% to 46%.

How is other’s experience, seems quite worse when online articles suggest near 1 hour for full charge

User II

I have a 45W charging brick and when I plug it in it says “Super fast charging” and then gives me an apparent time it’ll take for it to be fully charged, I did some calculations and it’s telling me it charges at about 2% per minute, which would be insane.

Now, the problem is that it’s actually not the truth. It’s way slower. In 10 minutes it goes up by like 4%. I’ve used an app and it says it’s only charging at about 4 Watts?
