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 old-fashioned wired charging for the Galaxy S20. Still, something must 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.

The second-generation Pixel Stand is one of the industry’s most beloved wireless charging stands. The sleek design will look great anywhere, and it’s helpful that it doubles as a phone propping accessory. This means you can easily continue using your device while it’s charging.

This wireless charging stand is especially fast at 23W, but those speeds can only be reached by compatible Pixel phones. All other devices top off at 15W, which is good enough to juice up your Samsung Galaxy S20 phones at full speed.
