Here’s how you can Adaptive charging on your Pixel 4 or later:
When you charge your phone between 9 PM and 4 AM with an active alarm set for 3–10 AM, your phone may use Adaptive charging. This feature must be turned on for your phone to use it. To help preserve long-term battery life, you can charge your phone steadily overnight. Adaptive charging uses your alarm’s settings to completely charge your phone right before you wake up.
Google Pixel phones also come with a Battery Share feature to wirelessly charge Qi-certified phones or accessories, like Pixel Buds, on your Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6, or Pixel 5. To charge wirelessly with Battery Share, your phone needs to have a high enough battery level. To check your battery level, open your phone’s Settings app. Tap Battery and then Battery Share. Make sure your phone is in a spot where it won’t get too hot. Learn how to keep your Pixel phone cool.
It is important to tell that to help preserve battery life, some Pixel phones may automatically adjust their charging to manage device and battery temperatures. In some cases, this could result in slower charging speed.
