The Samsung Galaxy S20 series of smartphones all have support for 15w Qi-based wireless charging. In fact, the phones support Wireless Powershare like the S10 series, which allows the phones themselves to serve as wireless chargers for other compatible phones and devices.
Wireless charging is still not as fast as plain old-fashioned wired charging for the Galaxy S20. Still, there’s something to be said about the convenience of just setting a phone down on a pad where it will automatically start charging up. So which pad is best for the Galaxy S20 wireless charging feature? There are plenty of devices that will work, but below are our top five recommendations.
Best Galaxy S20 wireless charging pads
- Samsung 15W wireless charger stand

1. Samsung 15W wireless charger stand
One of Samsung’s newest charging stands, the Samsung 15W Fast Charge 2.0 delivers up to 15W of output to the new Galaxy S20 phones. The output tops out at 12W for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10. Speeds vary for other devices, though any Qi-compatible smartphones will take a charge.
The features don’t stop there. The built-in cooling fan makes sure the charging stand doesn’t overheat. The LED indicator lets you know when a device is charging and finished charging. It even comes with Samsung’s Super Fast Charge 25W wall charger, which you can use with Samsung S20 smartphones or any smartphone with a USB-C port.
2. Samsung Wireless Duo Pad
The Samsung Wireless Charger Duo Pad now features Fast Charge 2.0 support. That means Galaxy S20 and S10 phones charge up to 12W, with older Samsung smartphones charging up to 7.5W. The charging pad also works with other Qi-compatible smartphones.
Best of all, there’s a dedicated area to charge you Samsung smartwatch or true wireless earbuds, like the new Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus. The LED indicator lights let you know when devices are charging and when they reach 100%.

The Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charger Stand is exactly that: a charging stand outputting a charge to Qi-compatible smartphones. Output tops out at 9W for Samsung Galaxy smartphones, including the S20, and 7.5W for iPhones. The output for other devices may vary.
The fan makes sure the stand doesn’t overheat when charging your smartphone. There’s also an LED indicator that turns red when a device is charging and green when a device is fully charged. If the light bothers you at night, you have the option to turn it off.
4. Wireless charger battery
The Samsung Wireless Charger Portable Battery is unique in that it can charge your Galaxy S20 phone with or without a wire.
The battery supports up to a 7.5W output for Qi-compatible devices, with a cable getting you up to 15W of output. The 10,000mAh capacity should be enough for up to two full charges for smartphones and over 10 full charges for your Samsung smartwatch or Galaxy Buds.
5. Mophie Wireless Charging Pad
Want to charge up to three devices at once on one wireless charging pad? The Mophie pad lets you do that . . . well, sort of.
