In the Android smartphone world, Samsung the biggest game in town. Its Galaxy-branded handsets, including the recent Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, and the Galaxy Note 9, have all been sales hits. These three phones, along with some of Samsung’s older mobile devices, support quick charging for their batteries. In fact, every Galaxy flagship since the Note 4 has supported fast charging technology. Let’s look at the best fast Samsung Galaxy charger options you can buy, both wired and wireless.
Samsung Genuine Micro-USB / USB Type-C Fast Charge Wall Charger
Many of you likely own more than one Samsung phone, or are in a family who also own multiple mobile products from the company. If that’s the case, then it’s also likely that you have some phones that use the older Micro-USB connection for charging, and others with the more recent USB Type-C port. Thankfully, there are fast Samsung Galaxy charger options, including one directly from the company, that can handle both connections.
The Samsung Genuine Micro-USB / USB Type-C Fast Charge Wall Charger has a five foot Micro-USB cable with a USB Type-C adapter attached at the end. Samsung says this adapter will not cause any loss of power transfer. 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. You can get this Samsung accessory now from Amazon for $32.20.
Samsung Fast Charge car charger
If you have just one Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphone, you might want to take a look at the company’s Fast Charge car charger, for when you’re heading to work, school, or on a long trip. The single USB Type-C allows phones support Samsung’s fast charging to go from zero to 50 percent of its battery capacity in just 30 minutes. For all other USB-based devices, the car charger offers a slow two amp charging rate. You can get this Samsung accessory on Amazon normally for $29.99, though frequently discounts for this accessory bring the price down to about $18.
Samsung Fast Charge Dual-Port Car Charger
Samsung Fast Charge 5,100mAh and 10,200 Battery Packs
Sometimes there isn’t a handy power outlet, or even a running car when you need one to charge up your phone. If that’s the case, the fast Samsung Galaxy charger you may need is an external battery back. As it happens, Samsung sells external batteries for phones that not only support fast charging but can power up your phone in full before its own battery runs out.
Samsung sells a big 10,200mAh external battery with a USB Type-C connection for more recently released Samsung phones. 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. It also contains a multi-LED power indicator to let you know just how much juice is still available. Amazon is currently selling this battery for $79.99.
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 Galaxy smartphones and faster than normal wireless chargers. If you own more than one Samsung flagship phone, or if you own one phone and one of the company’s smartwatches, like the Gear S3 series or the recent Galaxy Watch, you can charge them at the same time with this Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Changing Duo Stand and Pad.
You can charge your Samsung phone in either portrait or landscape mode with this stand and it lets you watch videos while the phone is charging up. Having a second wireless charging pad next to the stand is pretty helpful for the many folks who own more than one device. This Samsung fast charging wireless pad combo is a tad expensive. It’s available in black or white, normally for $119.99. Some discounts take that price down on Amazon slightly to around $106.
If you just own one Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphone, you might want to look into Samsung’s fast charging wireless stand. It ditches the second flat pad but it can still be lifted up from its base to become a stand, which allows users to place their Galaxy phone (or indeed, any phone with Qi-based hardware) to watch videos, read emails, and more while the phone itself charges up.
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, along with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and all the Galaxy S7, S8, and S9 units. All other Samsung smartphones, along with any other phone that supports Qi pads, will charge at normal speeds. The Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible Stand is available from Amazon, in black, white, and blue for $69.99, though discounts can take it down to about $45.
Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Pad
If you just want a way to quickly charge up your recently bought Samsung Galaxy flagship phone without needing to use the phone, this product could be for you. The Samsung Fast Charge Qi Wireless Charging Pad, like its bigger brother, this flat wireless pad allows most of Samsung’s more recent phones to charge up from 0 to 100 percent in less than an hour. While it cannot stand up, it is still a nice solution for anyone who doesn’t want to plug their phone into a wired connection. Amazon currently has this product priced at just $59.95, but discounts can take it down to $49.99. The Samsung fast charging wireless pad comes in black or white.
That’s just a brief look at the fast Samsung Galaxy charger options out there right now made and sold directly from the company. Of course, other wired and wireless chargers from third party accessory makers might be interesting as well if you don’t want to use the Samsung products.
