Charging with cables is usually faster, but that is about the only advantage it has over wireless charging technology. Nothing beats being able to just drop your phone on a platform and letting it juice up. It’s seamless and easy. And if you do it right, you never have to plug in your device again.
In 2016 and 2017, we’ve seen a slight move away from the technology with metallic designs being so popular (and not very wireless charging friendly). This change away from wireless also has something to do with USB Type-C being so easy to plug and charge on the go. Thankfully, Samsung continues to fully support wireless, just as it has for years.
For those rocking the aging Samsung Galaxy Note 5, we highly recommend you take advantage of the convenience of wireless charging. In this post we curate a list of the best wireless chargers for your Note 5. Let’s jump right into it!
