HUAWEI P30 Wireless Charging Case Teardown Review
Recently, Huawei has released two flagship models, the P30 and the P30 Pro. Among them, only the P30 Pro has native support for wireless charging. To enable wireless charging for P30, Huawei has released a Huawei P30 wireless charging protective case. This wireless charging protective case supports 10W wireless fast charging, and has passed TÜV Rheinland safety certification and Qi certification. Now, let’s dive into our teardown review.
The HUAWEI P30 Wireless Charging Protective Case comes in Aurora or orange. We have the orange version.
Selling points: 10W (Max) wireless charging, Qi multi-compatibility, and multi-safety protection.
Specifications on the back.
To achieve maximum wireless charging power, the packaging specifies that the case needs to be used along with the Huawei wireless charging base and the Huawei 9V/2A, or 10V/4A charger; or with the Huawei 5V/4.5A, or 10V/4A charger.
The product has passed TÜV Rheinland safety certification and Qi certification.
Package contents: the case and a quick guide.
