  • Google has given its take on how the Pixel 6 series charging works.
  • It says the phones can reach 80% in an hour before power is reduced due to battery health concerns.
  • Google also said that the Pixel 6 and Pro variant offer wired speeds of 21W and 23W respectively.

Our own testing of the Google Pixel 6 series revealed that the phone doesn’t actually charge at anywhere close to 30W, despite the company tacitly suggesting that this was the case. In fact, resident tester Rob Triggs found that the phones drew a maximum of 22W and an average of 13W for a charging cycle.

Now, Google has posted a thread on its Pixel community forum (h/t: 9to5Google), explaining how charging works on the Pixel 6 series. For starters, the company claimed that the phones’ batteries are meant to balance battery life, fast charging, and longevity.
