Best Wireless Charging Pads for Galaxy S8 in 2018

by John_A


The Samsung Galaxy S8 supports wireless charging, so take full advantage of the convenience!

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a beautifully designed phone packed with convenient features. That includes wireless charging, which allows you to forgo dealing with cables and elegantly have your phone charging on your desk at work or nightstand at home and simply grab it when it’s time to get up and go.

There are a variety of wireless charging stands and pad options compatible with the Galaxy S8, from chargers designed by Samsung to third-party products. Here are your best available options for the Samsung Galaxy S8.

  • Samsung Fast Charge Convertible Wireless Charging Pad
  • Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charger pad
  • Tylt Qi Wireless Charging Stand
  • Aukey Wireless Charging Pad
  • iOttie iON Wireless Qi Wireless Charging Pad
  • PASONOMI Fast Wireless Charger

Samsung Fast Charge Convertible Wireless Charging Pad


Samsung has come out with a completely redesigned wireless charging pad/stand, which launched alongside the Galaxy S8. Besides the premium leather-like appearance and ingenious design which allows you to easily convert this pad into an angled charging stand, you can be sure that this charging pad was created with your Galaxy S8 in mind.

The charger comes with a spare Samsung Fast Charge wall charger — because let’s be honest, you can never have too many Samsung wall chargers — and allows you to fast charge your Galaxy S8 wirelessly at your home or office. Priced at $45 to $50, this is the most expensive option on the list, but if premium quality and functionality are your top priorities, this is the one you want.

For the same fast charging speeds in a less-expensive (and smaller) package, look for Samsung’s last-generation flat wireless charging pad.

This UFO-like charging pad can charge all Qi-compatible devices and is Fast Charge-compatible with your Galaxy S8. It also comes with a Samsung Fast Charge wall charger, which is a requirement to get the fastest speeds. This Amazon listing has them available for $35 each and may be a better choice for you than the convertible stand. You can frequently find refurbished models on sale for much less.

TYLT Qi Wireless Charging Stand


TYLT has been in the wireless charging game for years, proving itself to be one on of the most trusted third-party manufacturers. This is another angled wireless charging stand that lets you keep your phone accessible while it charges at your desk.

What separates TYLT from the rest is its bold color options — you can get this charging stand in black, red, blue and yellow starting at just $28.

This wireless charger from iOttie is the latest refinement from a company that has been making quality charging pad for years. The latest is Qi-compatible with Wireless Fast Charging up to 10W for the fastest wireless charging speeds for your Samsung Galaxy S8.

Part of the redesign includes a really nice fabric finish that’s available in Ruby Red, Ash Grey, and Ivory White. This is a wireless charger that doesn’t look like a cheap disc of plastic, so you’ll be happy to show this charger off in your office or living room. The kit comes with a wall charger brick and charging cable and can be yours for $50.

PASONOMI Fast Wireless Charger


This wireless charging stand from PASONOMI is a great option for the Galaxy S8 or any Samsung Galaxy phone with wireless charging because it supports fast charging. That means you’ll be able to fully charge your phone in under 2 hours!

It’s an intelligently designed charger with two charging coils positioned so that you’re even able to charge your phone while watching videos in landscape mode. There’s also a nice LED strip that will indicate the charging status, and the whole thing has a sleek and futuristic vibe to it.

The stand is available in your choice of black or silver for just $18.
