Tech News I think it’s time for Samsung’s Galaxy tablets to adopt Wireless PowerShare


Wireless PowerShare is one fantastic feature available for most Samsung flagship phones. This technology lets Galaxy phone users turn their smartphones into wireless battery banks that can recharge other Samsung devices without needing wires or wall adapters. And that is precisely why I think keeping this technology exclusive to smartphones might be a missed opportunity.

Galaxy tablets seem like a perfect fit for Wireless PowerShare technology. They have large batteries — enough to recharge Samsung’s wearables many times over and a smartphone — but unfortunately, no Samsung tablet to date offers this feature.

There may be a technical explanation as to why this is. Wireless PowerShare is often paired with wireless charging technology, and the latter is missing on Galaxy tablets for a couple of good reasons. The first is that tablets are too large to sit comfortably on wireless charging pads, so they don’t really need wireless charging. The second is that tablet batteries are too large to be fully recharged wirelessly in a reasonable amount of time.

If Samsung laptops can do it, so can Galaxy tablets​

On the other hand, the large battery is precisely why I believe tablets are the perfect fit for Wireless PowerShare. As a Galaxy tablet, smartphone, and earbuds user myself, I wish that my tablet had the capability to recharge all my other Galaxy devices. It would make traveling a little bit easier and certainly take away from the old feeling of battery anxiety.

From a technical standpoint, I think it’s fair to say that, as long as Samsung was able to fit Wireless PowerShare technology under the touchpad of some of its Windows laptops, then the idea of adding PowerShare to tablets is at least worth considering.

The only downside I can personally think of is an increased production cost for said tablets. But perhaps Samsung could keep tablet prices in check if it could offer Wireless PowerShare technology without making the tablets themselves capable of recharging their own batteries wirelessly. As we have already established, tablets don’t really need wireless charging.

And even with the added cost, perhaps PowerShare would add value and could go a long way for regular battery bank users who are thinking of buying a new Samsung tablet.

What do you think? Should Samsung tablets come with Wireless PowerShare? Would this addition make you a bigger Galaxy tablet fan, or would it make any difference? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and feel free to let us know if you’ve ever used Wireless PowerShare on your phone or if you’d use it more often if available on Galaxy tablets.
