You may have to buy the 45W fast charger for the Galaxy Note 10+ separately

There has been a debate about the fast charging speeds that the Galaxy Note 10 will offer. One would expect that it would offer the same 25W fast charging as the Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy A80 and the Galaxy A70. However, there have been some whispers about 45W charging as well.

It’s now believed that both Galaxy Note 10 models will come with a 25W fast charger in the box. Only the Galaxy Note 10+ will have support for 45W charging but customers would have to purchase that charger separately.

45W fast charger for Galaxy Note 10+ to be sold separately

This according to @UniverseIce, who shared a screenshot of a certification for the Chinese variant of the Galaxy Note 10. It mentions the EP-TA800 charger which is used by the aforementioned devices for 25W fast charging. This would mean that those who want 45W fast charging on a device that’s likely to start at 1149 euro will have to purchase a charger separately.

There’s little concrete evidence to support the theory of 45W fast charging on the Galaxy Note 10+, though. What does make it seem plausible is an unreleased EP-TA845 charger which reportedly might be the 45W. The technical details of this charger remain unknown so it’s not a certainty at this point.

Samsung obviously needs to have some differences between the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ aside from just the display sizes. So it seems plausible that 45W fast charging could be limited to the latter. However, if that does happen, customers may not feel too good about having to purchase the charger separately. With the Galaxy Note 10+ set to start at 1149 euro, surely many would prefer having the 45W fast charger ship with the box.

If you get the Galaxy Note 10+ and have to buy the charger separately, would you do it? Let us know in the comments section below.
