    I was thinking about getting a wireless charger for my GS8. This one seems to only be 22 bucks, where the Samsung is probably $80 or so. Also, the 22 one doesn't have a fan, so I didn't want noise to be an issue by my bed at night.

    Would there be any reason to get Samsung's newest wireless charger, coming out at the same time as the phone over this one?

    Here is the Samsung new one:

    I have two of these Samsung wireless chargers, which also have the fans. Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand - Android Wireless Charging - ShopAndroid

    The fan is almost completely silent. I can't hear it, and it certainly never interfered with my sleep, 2 feet away from my ear.

    Assuming the new version is similar (or better?), it would be no problem.

    I'm hoping the ones I have will still be good with the S8 I'm planning to get.

    Edit: The Samsung wireless chargers are "Fast Charge", and charge faster than other wireless chargers for a newer Galaxy device.

    That one doesn't come with any AC adapter, let alone a fast charging one. There are a few similar models out there with the adapter for not much more money.

    Probably going to use my Samsung wireless fast charger for my GS7. Although I like the look of the new Samsung wireless fast charger.

    Hey @NismoZ, with everything you purchase today. There is always a brand tax allocated to the product. Samsung have a high brand value so their chargers will be a little more expensive compared to 'unknown brands'. The higher price is also to assure customers of 'quality' and also allowing them to include the latest technology.

    Im sure the "Seneo PA046" will work fine and it will definitely charge your device. The 18-month warranty is a good sign they company trusts their product. That being said. I would always advise getting the OEM chargers if money isn't a problem. There are definitely a ton of alternatives out there for much cheaper.

    Just go on eBay and get a couple used fast wireless chargers from reputable sellers. Can get them for $12-$15 now.

    I haven't bought a Samsung wireless charger since the initial model that came with the S6. That one always bugged me in that it shut off once the phone made it to 100% and wouldn't maintain 100%, so in effect it would reach 100% sometime during the night if charging overnight, but by morning, the phone would be back down to 90-93% charge. Do the newer Samsung wireless chargers still do this?

    Most wireless chargers I've bought from other brands will actually continue to maintain 100% after reaching it.

    I always liked the Samsung Fast Wireless Charger when I used my S7 Edge. They did a BOGO deal so my friend and I got one and split the cost so it worked out. Maybe Samsung will do the same for the S8 ?

    It's likely they'll offer incentives for signing up for Samsung Pay. From gift cards to free gifts and promo codes. I expect this to happen around release time.

    I have the current fast wireless charger for my S7. It maintains it at 100 percent.

    I got one when I purchased the S6 & S6 edge and they work fine. I used it for the Note 5, S7 edge and Note 7 (while it was around).

    Awesome stuff. That's great to know. 😃 I'll use this wireless charger as an alternative option for anyone asking in the future when money is tight.

    I've been using CHOETECH Wireless chargers for a while and they have always been excellent. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive but I can tell you that they have this new fast Wireless Charger that according to some reviews can go toe to toe with the Samsung OEM one. Best of all they currently have a Promo Code available for an Amazon Purchase and it should leave the price on $15.99.

    If you want to try them, here it's the link. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010B6PSMC

    Are the "Samsung" wireless chargers on Ebay the real deal or are they counterfeit? Do they charge as well as one bought from Samsung? Like this one:

    Looks like a nice charger, but reading the fine print...says it doesn't come with a power adapter, and requires a fast charge adapter for the fast charge feature, but isn't compatible with the S7 OEM adapter. I wonder the odds of it working with the S8 fast charge adapter.

    Yeah, I read that but after contacting CHOETECH I was told that it's because of the QC 2.0 specs and that the S7/S7 edge charger doesn't comply with it (or something like that is what I recall of that message) anyways, I have other QC 2.0 adapters here so for me is not an issue, plus, as far as I know, the S8 adapters should have no issues with this charger. That's why they are giving new PROMO codes previous to the S8 release so people should have other alteranatives to the OEM one.

    I'll definitely prove everything when I finally get it, it's still on scheduled for delivery on Apr 15, so once I get it I'll try with what I have and then with the S8 adapter once I get it.

    There are several brands with very similar chargers out there for around $20. Find the ones with the best reviews for what you are looking for and put them on a watch list. Chances are, you get a notification sometime in the next week that it is on a deal and save more money.

    I finally received the CHOETECH wireless charger and in a summary it's even better than expected. It comes with the cable so only thing needed is a Fast Adaptive Charger, I really don't know which model this is from but it must be from the Galaxy S7 edge. S7 or Note 5 that I've bought on the past year and a half, so I don't know why it says that it doesn't work with the S7 fast chargers, mine is working great. See pictures.

    Guys for $15.99 with the Code below, you can't go wrong with it.

    Check my post above, it seems that it's working fine with the fast adaptive charger I'm using and it must be from a S7, S7 edge or Note 5, as those are the only fast Adaptive chargers from Samsung I kept.

    I have this one from choetech coming tomorrow. It has good reviews and I picked it up for $16. I have the old Samsung fast wireless charging stand and I always felt like my note 7 was gonna tip over. This one looks taller.
