Got my Pixel 6 recently and noticed the charging speed has been quite slow, over 2 hours for a full charge. I realize the Pixel 6 will only reach the claimed 30W charging speed with a modern charger that supports USB-C PD and PPS, so I bought an Anker PowerPort III Pod Lite (https://www.amazon.com/Charger-Anker-Compact-Adapter-PowerPort/dp/B08F28BH7C).

However, when I connect the Anker charger to my Kill-A-Watt meter, it never shows the charger as drawing more than 10 watts from the wall outlet when charging the Pixel 6. This is despite the Pixel displaying "charging rapidly" on the screen.

Has anyone else noticed this? If you have a watt meter, would be useful to see what the actual wattage draw is when charging the Pixel 6.

make sure you turn off all the adaptive settings as it will charge based on current status and will not always charge at full speed.
