Samsung had introduced a Wireless Charging Pad earlier this year at MWC along with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphone. However it didn’t have fast charging as wireless fast charging wasn’t supported until the introduction of the Note5 and S6 edge+ smartphones. Along with them, Samsung introduced a new wireless charging pad that has fast charging capabilities.
The contents of the box are:
- Samsung Fast Charging Wireless Pad
- User Manual
The new wireless charger will work with fast charging wireless on the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ only. Samsung should introduce more models with fast wireless charging in the future but at the moment, only these two support it. The S6 and S6 edge will charge wireless just like any other smartphone that has wireless charging capability but it will be at regular speeds.
Users can use the same charger and microUSB cable to connect to the charging pad and being charging their compatible smartphone by simply placing it on the pad. The fast charging wireless pad is around 1.4 times faster than the regular wireless pad thus reducing the total charge time by upto 50 minutes. The charging pad comes in both white and black colours and retails for US$ 70 in USA. We will be doing a review of the wireless charging pad in the near future so do stay tuned for that.
