Charging troubles

Fast charging delivers a higher voltage to your phone, and as a result you’ll see the battery charging up quickly initially — it takes just about an hour to charge the Moto G5 Plus from 5% to 80%. It takes another 45 minutes to get from 80% to the 100% mark, and that’s because as the battery charges up, the controller starts regulating the power to normal levels.


Think of it this way: initially, the charger delivers 18W of charge, but as the battery hits its saturation levels, the power management regulator cuts back on the charge delivered to avoid overcharging.
