How To Use Huawei Mate 20 Pro's Reverse Wireless Charging

Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Last month, the long-awaited Huawei Mate 20 series was officially released. To our surprise, Huawei launched four new phones at once this time. Each product has its own highlightss. Among the numerous advancements in Huawei Mate 20 series, the wireless reverse charging feature in Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the most eye-catching one, attracting attention from media and fans.

World’s First Wireless Reverse Charge

At present, there are some mobile phones on the market that support reverse charging. For example, Xiaomi's Max3, Gionee M5 and Media Pad M1 have previously offered reverse charging. However, Huawei's Mate 20 Pro is the first to use reverse wireless charging.

How to Use Huawei Reverse Wireless Charging

The wireless reverse charging of Huawei Mate 20 Pro is very simple to use. You just need to open the wireless reverse charging mode in Settings, and Huawei Mate 20 Pro will become a wireless charger. If another device supports Qi wireless standard charging, then you can charge it by direct contact with Huawei Mate 20 Pro. That's pretty cool.

When the Huawei Mate 20 Pro's battery is less than 20%, the phone would automatically turn off the wireless reverse charging function to ensure the normal functionality of the phone itself. At present, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a 4,200mAh battery. That's pretty impressive, but heavy users may find that a portable charger is necessary to stay charged throughout the day.

Is Mate 20 Pro's wireless reverse charging practical?

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Charging

According to third-party tests, the Mate 20 Pro only recharged 3% of a Samsung S9's battery after 15 minutes of wireless reverse charging, while the Mate 20 Pro itself lost 9% power. Clearly, it's not particularly efficient. And perhaps this is a feature only suited to niche cases. If there is only one charger, this function can be used to charge both Huawei Mate 20 Pro and another phone simultaneously. Especially for those who often travel, the wireless reverse charging of Huawei Mate 20 Pro could be exceptionally useful. We'll have to see if this technology is adopted in other products in the future.
