The Motorola Moto e5 Play comes with its own 10 watts based Motorola 10W ac charger for charging over the micro-B interface without using any form of quick charging. Here we find out if the phone can also work with the 15 watts based Motorola TurboPower Charger that ships with the Moto X4 phone.
Using a USB Type-A to micro-B cable, we connected the Motorola TurboPower Charger with the Moto e5 Play having only 3% battery charge left on the phone. Upon reaching the first 10 seconds at plugin, the voltage initiated at about 5 volts where the phone then only started pulling around 1.9 amps current to charge at about 9.5 watts (5 volts @ 1.9 amps). The voltage went up slightly after 10 seconds to stay on a 5.1 volts rail along with stable current of around 1.9 amps allowing steady state charging of 9.7 watts (5.1 volts @ 1.9 amps) for the phone.

For some reason the Moto e5 Play can only get 5W from its own supplied Motorola 10W ac charger as seen here, but can achieve close to 10W from a Motorola 15W based charger like the Motorola TurboPower Charger.
