Google Pixel 2 XL rapid charging slows down under low temperature


As per some reports from gizmochina some users of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL are facing issue with the battery of the device and also the device is getting heated up.

Google's Pixel 2 XL smartphones have begun displaying freaky behavior when charging following February's security update, a number of owners are complaining.

The video was posted on Reddit originally and then was shared across multiple platforms including Twitter . The video, made by Chinese media company Tencent, has appeared online.

Android Police, in their testing, revealed that despite Google's claim of 10W+ charging speeds, the Pixel 2 XL only caps to 4W under low temperatures.

Android Police readers reported that Google's Pixel 2 XL charges at significantly slower speeds when it's not at an ideal temperature. "Battery life seems unaffected". "It's not that the fingerprint scanner works slower because I feel the vibration very fast after I put my finger on the scanner but than it takes really long before the screen actually turns on". The issue has been raised in Google's official product forums and following tests from several users, a culprit has emerged-the charging amperage changed according to the temperature. Even after doing two full factory resets on his phone, the issue was not resolved. The team replicated the problem by charging the Pixel 2 XL in a refrigerator under 16-degree Celsius temperature and then noting down the difference by charging it again at a room temperature of 24-degree Celsius. However, the Pixel 2 XL has been blighted by all manner of problems since its release in November. The issue needs to be investigated in-depth by other OEMs as well. All three dropped charging rates in colder conditions, but the Pixel 2 XL reduction was around four times as bad. However, there hasn't been any word from the Search Giant about these problems faced due to the security patch, but we hope Google to soon come up with a solution and fix this as quickly as possible.
