Samsung is the biggest name in the Android smartphone world. Its Galaxy-branded handsets, including the Galaxy Note 10 lineup and the Galaxy S10 series, have all been sales hits. Every Galaxy flagship since the Note 4 has supported fast charging technology, but it can be hard to find the chargers that take advantage of the technology. Let’s make it easier for you with this list of the best Samsung Galaxy chargers around, both wired and wireless.
Best Samsung Galaxy chargers:
Best Samsung Galaxy wired chargers
1. Samsung Genuine Micro-USB / USB Type-C Fast Charge Wall Charger
Chances are you live in a household with multiple mobile devices. It’s also likely that some phones use the older Micro-USB connection for charging, and others the more recent USB-C port. The Samsung Genuine MicroUSB / USB-C Fast Charge Wall Charger has a five foot MicroUSB cable with a USB-C adapter attached at the end. If your Galaxy phone supports fast charging, it will bring the device up to 50 percent of its battery capacity in about 30 minutes. All other USB devices will charge slower with a two amp charging rate.
2. Volta 2.0 Magnetic Charging CablePromoted
While not specifically made for Samsung devices, Volta’s cables are great if you’re looking for a spare cable for your device. The Volta 2.0 magnetic cable is a sleek 5A charging cable that’s also a sync magnetic cable. While it has a standard USB connection on one end, the other end has a magnet that can connect to three different tips: USB-C, Lightning and microUSB. That means that if you put the magnetic tips inside the ports of your favorite mobile devices, the magnetic connector on the cable can quickly snap into place.
The Volta 2.0 supports USB-C Power Delivery, along with Huawei’s Fast Charge technology, and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.
3. Volta XLPromoted
The Volta XL fast charging cable is a USB-C based product, and it also has a magnetic connection on the other end. It connects to a separate USB-C tip that is inserted into your compatible smartphone, tablet, or other USB-C device. It’s capable of 70 percent faster charging speeds than other 5W charging cables.
Like the Volta 2.0, the Volta XL is compatible with Huawei’s Fast Charge technology and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. You can purchase it directly from the Volta web site in your choice of red or black colors.
4. Samsung Fast Charge Car Charger
If you have just one Samsung Galaxy smartphone, you might want to take a look at the company’s Fast Charge car charger. The single USB-C can charge a Samsung fast charging device from zero to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. For all other USB-based devices, the car charger offers a slow two amp charging rate.
5. Samsung Fast Charge Dual-Port Car Charger
Samsung has you covered for those not-so-lonely times with this dual-port car charger. The dual port adapter connects to any standard vehicle power outlet. Older Samsung phones without fast charging support can still power up at a two-amp rate. Phones with fast charging should go from zero to 50 percent in about 30 minutes, as with the standard charger.
6. Samsung Fast Charge 5,100mAh and 10,000mAh Battery Packs
Sometimes there isn’t a handy power outlet when you need one. If that’s the case, the Samsung Galaxy charger you may need is an external battery back. As it happens, Samsung sells fast-charging external batteries. One of them is a 10,000mAh external battery with a USB Type-C connection. The large battery should be able to power up most phones at least two times and Samsung phones with fast charging can get back up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. The unit also contains a multi-LED power indicator to let you know how much juice is still available.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone and don’t want to spend more money on the bigger 10,000mAh external battery charger, then check out this Samsung charger with 5,100mAh of battery capacity. It includes a cable with both microUSB and USB-C, which should allow you to charge most devices. It also supports the Fast Charging options on Samsung’s flagship phones.
The battery has two ports so you can charge up your phone and charge the battery itself at the same time. It even has a built-in strap on the ports side for easier transportation.
Best Samsung Galaxy wireless chargers
1. Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Changing Duo Stand and Pad
They’re not as fast as a wired connection, but Samsung also sells wireless charging pads using the Qi standard. They’re compatible with several flagship Samsung Galaxy smartphones and faster than normal wireless chargers. If you own more than one Samsung flagship device or accessory, you can charge them at the same time with this Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Changing Duo Stand and Pad. This Samsung fast charging wireless pad combo is a tad expensive.
2. Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible Stand
You might not need multiple charging stations. The Samsung fast charging wireless stand ditches the second pad, but it can be lifted up from its base to become a stand. The fast charging feature on this pad will get some phones from zero to 100 percent in just 50 minutes. This feature works with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and later models. All other Samsung smartphones, along with any other phone that supports Qi pads, will charge at normal speeds.
There is also a version that doesn’t stand up, named the Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Pad, but that one can’t be used as a stand and costs the same.
3. Samsung 2-in-1 Portable Fast Charge Wireless Charger and Battery Pack 10,000 mAh
Now, here is something cool. This 10,000mAh Samsung battery pack can charge your devices both wired and wirelessly. It features a 5W charging output when using the wireless feature. If you are in a rush you can plug it in physically and speed things up to 15W.
That’s just a brief look at the fast Samsung Galaxy charger options out there right now. Of course, other wired and wireless chargers might be interesting too. We’ll update this post with new models once they launch.
