The best wireless charging pads for the Galaxy S9

by John_A

If you’ve upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S9 in 2018, you’ll want to try out the wireless charging functionality. There’s a large number of options out there for wireless charging, but not all are made equal. For those who love keeping things “on brand”, we’d recommend the Samsung convertible charging pad, but there are some great third-party accessories available, too, including the stylish IOttie iON Mini, and the budget-friendly option from Anker.

If you want a reliable wireless charging pad that won’t let you down, check out these great products!

Top Pick

iOttie iON Wireless Qi Charging Pad Mini

From iOttie comes this stylish charger that’s Qi-compatible with a charging zone capable of 10W output. Available in Ash Gray or Ruby Red fabric, this is a wireless charger that will look great on your office desk or end table.

Best from Samsung

Samsung Fast Charge Convertible Wireless Charging Pad

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.

Old school cool

Samsung Wireless Charging Pad

Samsung’s old style of the wireless charging pad is still a reliable option for the Galaxy S9. These charging pads look like mini-UFOs and are Fast Charge-compatible. It also ships with a Samsung 2A wall charger — always great — and comes with a standard one-year warranty.

Budget Pick

Anker Qi-Certified Wireless Charger

Our most budget-conscious pick 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 with a larger charging coil that dissipates the heat over a wide surface area.

More power

Anker 10W Qi-Certified Wireless Charger

If speedy charging is what you’re after, you’ll want to spend a bit more on this Anker charging pad. You’ll need a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger to get the top speeds, but beyond that this has a some good features including the LED indicators around the edges that will turn off when charging is complete.

Best for the office

Spigen Qi Wireless Charging Stand

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. This stand features three charging coils that allow you to charge your Galaxy S9 in vertical or horizontal orientations, but you’ll need to supply your own wall adapter.

The point of the Samsung Galaxy S9’s glass back is to enable wireless charging, so you should make good use of that feature! Which charger you go with will ultimately depend on your budget and design preference, but I personally use the iOttie iON Mini — and be sure to put a thin case on it before you accidentally drop your phone one too many times!
