Is it me or does USB Charging kinda suck?

RoseLuck462

I have my S10+ plugged into my laptop, I'm uploading content to it and listening to music from the phone at the same time.

 

It seems like the battery power is going down instead of charging, weird.

 

The USB 3.0 port its connected to is one that is labeled for an external SSD with the lightening bolt symbol so it should it be adequately powersed right?

USB type A has limited power delivery. You would need a USB-C port to get decent charging speeds or a type A port with dedicated charging functionality.

This, exactly this. ^^^ Even the HP EliteDesk 800 mini-PCs we have at work don't charge that fast over USB-C, and they have dedicated charging ports. Why? Probably because computer motherboards aren't designed to output as much as a dedicated power / charging adapter from someone like Anker.

yeah but according to the first post it's not even charging. On Type A it should at least charge slowly.
