Wireless charging has become a common feature for many smartphones, and when the iPhone X became the first iPhone to use wireless charging, it became even more popular.
That said, as cool as wireless charging is, with not having to use a charging cable to connect to your phone, it is quite slow. However, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, and any other Samsung Qi wireless charging phone, then you’re in luck. That’s because these Samsung phones can charge at 15W with select chargers and 10W with most wireless chargers.
While most other wireless charging smartphones are only able to get 5W of charging power. We’ve selected wireless chargers that will be best used for charging your Samsung phone.
Samsung 15W Fast Wireless Charging Stand
Wireless charging pads are among the most purchased types of wireless chargers, but they make it more difficult to use your smartphone while it’s wirelessly charging. So, we decided to start with not only a charging stand but also a Samsung charger as well. This way, you’re able to get the fastest charging speed possible from the same brand as your phone.
This Samsung wireless charger features a 15W charging speed, which is higher than most other fast wireless charging pads and stands. This charging speed rivals regular USB-C charging, and so the bridge between wired and wireless charging is becoming more apparent.
Another reason to get this charger is that you get the build quality that you can expect from Samsung. Since wireless charging generates quite a bit of heat, there are vents at the back and a built-in fan to make sure that the charger stays cool. There is also rubber padding at the bottom of the charger, and also at the bottom of where you place your phone.
This charger also uses a USB-C port, which is a big relief because there are still a lot of wireless chargers that are still making use of Micro-USB ports. What’s even better is this charger Samsung charger even comes with a 25W USB-C PD Wall charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable to fully power the charger.
Anker PowerWave Pad 10W
Okay, so what if you’re not up for paying for Samsung’s premium price and still want to get fast wireless charging speed for your S20? Well, you’re in luck, because there are plenty of them. That said, Samsung 15W wireless chargers are really the only ones that can surely deliver 15W, and so you can’t be too sure about other chargers that say the same.
The next best thing would be to focus on 10W wireless chargers, and this brings us to the Anker PowerWave Pad 10W charger. It’s a super simple charger, with you just having to place your phone flat on it, and it starts charging.
This PowerWave Pad features 10W fast charging for Samsung phones, and even 7.5W fast charging for iPhones. There is a rubber grip on top so your phone does not slide around, and also at the bottom, so the charger itself does not slide around either. The only flaw that we would point out is that the charger uses a Micro-USB input port, rather than a USB-C port. The good thing is that it comes with a Micro-USB cable.
iOttie iON Wireless Plus v2 Charging Pad
Wireless chargers, in general, have one main look, and that would be to look as futuristic as possible, as most of them often have dark colors and are either made of matte or glossy plastic. That’s why this iOttie iON Wireless charging pad is a breath of the fresh air from its design and its charging.
Design-wise, the charger can blend into any room with its fabric covering and it looks like it belongs where you place it, rather than looking like a consumer electronic. Similar to a Google Home.
The charging power from this iOttie wireless charger is not lacking though, and this is mainly because there are two ways to charge from it. One way is, of course, the wireless charging. The charger has 10W fast charging for Samsung phones and 7.5W charging for iPhones. All other Qi wireless charging phones will get a 5W charging speed.
In addition to wireless charging, the charger also has a 12W USB-A port at the back that allows you to charge another device such as another smartphone or tablet. Few other chargers do this.
To top it all off, this iOttie wireless charger also comes with a USB-C 18W PD wall charger that can be used to fully power the charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable to use with it, too.
Samsung Fast Wireless Charger Duo
There are also dual wireless chargers, which are exactly what they sound like. This Samsung charger can charge two Qi wireless charging smartphones at the same time. The best part about this wireless charger is that it features two fast charging pads, so you can fast charge two Samsung phones at 10W, at the same time.
Another great part about this charger is that it has a standing charging pad and a flat pad charger, and as a result, if you have a Samsung watch then you’re able to charge your watch and your phone at the same time.
At the back of the charger, you’ll find a USB-C input port that the wireless charger is powered from.
RAVPower 10W Wireless Charging Stand
Alright, so we didn’t recommend another wireless charging stand other than the Samsung one that we started with. So if you want to go with another one, this RAVPower charger can prove to be useful. It does not have a 15W fast charging speed, but it does have 10W charging power rather than 5W that you would get from a regular charger.
The build quality of this charger is a great reason to get it because at the top part where you place your phone is made of rubber. So while it’s charging you’re able to use your phone at the same time, while a charging pad makes it more difficult to use your phone.
Since this is a fast wireless charger, it does require that you use a Quick Charge wall charger to be powered from, and the good thing is that the charger comes with a Quick Charge wall charger and a Micro-USB cable that you can use right out of the box.
Aukey PB-Y32 10,000mAh Wireless Charging Power Bank
There are even power banks that use wireless charging, and this Aukey 10,000mAh power bank features one of the best wireless charging when it comes to a portable charger. This is because the wireless charging on this Aukey power bank is 10W for Samsung phones. In addition to Samsung fast charging, this power bank also features 7.5W fast wireless charging for iPhones, and then 5W charging for all other Qi charging phones.
You might think that you have to use this power bank as a charging pad when it comes to using the wireless charging, however, the charging pad has a rubber material that grips onto your phone. It makes it a lot easier to wirelessly charge your phone and use it at the same time with the power bank, even if you’re tilting it in your hand.
In addition to the wireless charging, this Aukey power bank even features Power Delivery and a Quick Charge port for charging your Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra even faster. The power bank even comes with a USB-C to USB-A charging cable.
