I've recently switched to a S22 phone, coming from an S10. When I plug in the cable in my car to connect my phone, I get the charge animation popup, the little top right battery thing shows the charging image and then after a couple of seconds it goes back to no charge mode. Its the same as if I were to put in the charger and then pull the cable myself after 5 seconds. 

I've checked a couple of things:

- Changed cables. No change.

- Checked if my S10 had the same issue. No issues with my S10

- Checked the charging options. I have all 3 options enabled (fast charging, super fast charging, fast wireless charging).

 

What could this be? It seems like the phone is not getting enough power to consider it being able to charge, but then I'd expect the S10 to also not charge. It did always say I was slow charging on my S10, so it would make the most sense. Any way to verify this or to enable the ability to slow charge?

Maybe try going to Developer Options (hopefully you have it enabled). Then go to Default USB Configuration, see screenshots. Hope this helps.

Hey there.

I see you mentioned you tried using a different cable but if possible, I'd try a different car charger in general. I'm thinking maybe the car charger you're using may not be supplying enough power? While the S10 is still a great phone, it is also from several years ago and some things have changed since then. It shouldn't be drastic but perhaps a different charger will do the trick.

This is happening to my wife's phone as well. After plugging into the car's USB port with a USB to USB-C cable the charging icon shows for a few seconds then goes away. This has only recently started within the last couple weeks. We've used 3 different cords and it works perfectly fine for other devices using those same cables. This has to be a s22 issue not a vehicle issue.

This happens to me as well. I cannot charge my phone through my car, nor on any other charger that's not Samsung. Did you find a fix to this?

I eventually just concluded that the S22 uses more power than the S10, which my car USB just cant provide. It never charged fast on my S10, so it made sense. I swapped to one of those sigarette to usb things made for charging phones, works like a charm. Its a little less convenient with the socket placement but it does the trick and gives me fast charge mode.

Using products that were not from Samsung were never an issue for me.
