Samsung’s wireless charging pad combines the best wireless charging technologies packed into a really sleek design. Launched alongside the Galaxy S8, it features a premium leather-like appearance and ingenious design which allows you to easily convert this pad into an angled charging stand.

Samsung Wireless Charging Pad

Most to Offer


If functionality and cost are your two biggest buying factors, you’ll want to consider Samsung’s old style of wireless charging pad.

These charging pads look like mini-UFOs and are Fast Charge-compatible for devices that support it such as the Galaxy S9. It also comes with a Samsung 2A wall charger — always great — and a standard one-year warranty.

This is a great option if you’re looking to set up wireless charging at your home and at work because they’re so cheap right now — only $35. You can also get the older style as a charging stand for as low as $30 if you prefer that look instead.

You may also want to consider this bundle which includes Samsung’s car charger along with two cables (Micro-USB and USB-C) for just $36.

Anker Qi-Certified Wireless Charger Budget Pick

Budget Pick


Our cheapest choice on the list spares no quality or features. Anker, a well-known brand, offers a 7.5W Qi wireless charger that is extremely thin and low-profile but charges your Galaxy S9 quickly.

At $13, the Anker Qi-Certified wireless charger has overheating protection with its larger coil that spreads the heat over a wide surface area, and a low-profile 5mm thickness that will practically disappear on any desk or bedside table.

For even faster charging, Anker offers a 10W wireless charger for $18, too.

Spigen’s charging stand is angled, making this a great option for your office desk so you can easily see your display while your phone is charging. If you need a way to quickly top off your phone on your desk or a new place to keep it safe on your nightstand, this may be the choice for you. Spigen’s option comes with three charging coils so your Galaxy S9 will charge whether in vertical or horizontal orientation.

Pick yours up for $25 on Amazon.
