With the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus coming soon, Samsung is bringing out accessories to match their coming flagship. One of the devices we are excited about is the new Samsung Fast Wireless Charger for the Galaxy S8.
Samsung Fast Wireless Charger for the Galaxy S8
Samsung has consistently integrated Qi wireless charging to their recent flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are no exceptions to the tradition. Both phones come with Qi wireless charging receivers capable of fast wireless charging. Although it won’t be as fast as the Quick Charge 4.0 charging, it is much faster than previous wireless chargers.
The Samsung Fast Wireless Charger for the Galaxy S8 is capable of an output of up to 2.4A. This leaves the previous generation with a 1.5A output in the dust. The wireless charger can be adjusted to be either a stand or a simple pad. There’s also a fan to keep the charger and your phone cool. Because wireless charging does get quite warm, the fan is a great add-on for more convenience.
It’s currently available for pre-order in either black or tan at $89.99. This is quite pricey for a wireless charger, but with all the features it comes with, it’s worth it. The Samsung Fast Wireless Charger for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is said to be available starting April 20, which is a day before the Galaxy S8 launch in the US.
