How to enable reverse wireless charging on your Android smartphone

Reverse wireless charging – or wireless powershare, as Samsung users call it – is found on more and more Android smartphones. It allows you to wirelessly charge your smartwatch, wireless in-ear headphones or even your friends’ iPhones using your own smartphone and its Qi technology.

Many manufacturers – for example OnePlus or Samsung – have integrated this feature into several of their smartphones. But how does the reverse charging mode work? I’ll show you, it’s very simple!

Reverse wireless charging: How does it work?

There are essentially two ways to charge your smartphone: by cable or wireless. The latter method specifically allows the transfer of energy to the receiving device by electromagnetic induction. More and more smartphones offer reverse wireless charging, which allows them to be transformed into a wireless powerbank-style charging station, so they can be used to charge other devices, but without cables.

Not all new smartphones are equipped with reverse wireless charging. The main flagships released this year though are usually equipped with it – but not the iPhones. This feature is integrated in the Samsung Galaxy S22 and OnePlus 10 Pro for example.

Here, we made this tutorial on the OnePlus 10 Pro under OxygenOs 12. The steps are similar on MIUI 13 and OneUI 4, but the settings interface will be somewhat different. As initially mentioned, Samsung calls this feature Wireless Powershare.
