    I don't think there are pads specifically for the phones. The s6 and s7 use the same technology and therefore can use the same charger. Not possible for a manufacturer to make a charger that only works with one of the phones when they use the same tech.

    It will work fine but they do make the fast wireless charger now that would charge it faster.

    Cheers Guys.

    I've turned off Fast Charging on my s7 edge anyway so the 'fast charging' spec isn't a deal breaker.

    The s7 wireless charger in the uk is £40 and I can pick up a s6 option for £20 which is the reason for my query.

    Just remember that a 'Fast' Wireless charger has nothing to do with your phone's Fast Charging mode (that only works with compatible wired ones). The fast wireless is just a faster standard that charges, well, faster than the older ones, but it's still not 'Fast Charging'. In fact, the 'fast' wireless chargers are about as fast as a 'normal', non-Fast-Charging 2A wall adapter. You can read a bit more about that here:

    Well the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad meant for the s6 charges my s7 edge just fine.

    Alls good.
