Users complain about Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro not charging with certain USB Type-C cables and chargers.

According to a few users, the Pixel 6 series charges in some cases, but at an extremely slow rate.
Some users have reported that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro do not charge when using a standard USB Type-C cable and charger. This is a problem because the phone does not come with a charger. Users reported that while they can charge other phones, the latest Pixel phones will not charge with their USB Type-C chargers and cables. The problem appears to be most noticeable when using a generic charging cable. The Pixel 6 series phones were discovered to be charging in some cases, but at an extremely slow rate.


According to 9to5Google, some Pixel 6 users have reported that their phones are not charging when using a generic cable or charger on the Google Pixel Phone Help forums.

“I just got the device and plugged it into my generic cable/charger that I’d been using to charge any other USB-Type C device I’d used up until today.” There is no action. There was no charge, no warning, nothing. “It’s as if it’s not connected,” one of the affected users said on the forums.
In addition to the user reports on the official product forums, some Pixel 6 Pro users have also posted about the issue on Reddit. A few users have reported that while their Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro begin charging with their existing cables and chargers, it takes longer to fully charge their batteries.


It’s worth noting that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro don’t come with a charging brick, but Google’s charger can be purchased separately. The phones, on the other hand, come with a USB-C cable that users can use to charge their batteries by connecting them to a compatible charger.

Google has yet to respond to any user complaints about charging issues with current cables and chargers. However, on one of its support pages, it states that “other Android cables and power adapters may not work with Pixel phones.” This appears to be a precautionary measure designed to protect the Pixel devices’ built-in batteries from damage.

Both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro support USB Power Delivery (PD). This means you can charge them with a PD-compatible charger. However, if you want a new PD solution, you will have to pay more than you would with a generic cable or charger.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro both have 23W peak wired charging speeds, but you’ll need the 30W Google charger to do so. Some recent tests also revealed that, despite the new hardware and Google’s proprietary software tweaks, the top-tier Pixel 6 Pro charges significantly slower than the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
