The newer models of Samsung Galaxy Phones like S7 and S7 Edge make use of the latest Quick Charging Technology to help users charge their devices in significantly lesser time as compared to regular phones that are not equipped with this technology.
However, you may want to Disable Fast Charging on your Samsung Galaxy Phone in certain situations where the device might be at risk of overheating.
Luckily, Samsung has taken this concern into consideration and provides an easy way to enable or disable fast charging on your Samsung Galaxy device.
Why Disable Fast Charging
Fast Charging technology basically speeds up the process of charging on your device. This speeding causes your device to generate more heat than it does while it is being charged at regular speed.
The overheating of device while it is in Fast Charging Mode can be a problem if you are located in an overheated room or seated in a Car with no air conditioning.
In such situations, it makes sense to simply disable fast charging on your Samsung Galaxy phone and re-enable it later on whenever you move to cooler place or a place with Air Conditioning.
Another reason as to why some users want to disable fast charging is to silence the noise caused by a fan located in the charging pad. This fan gets activated only in fast charging mode and creates a noise which some users find irritating or disturbing.
