    Hi,
    I am interested in getting one of the wireless chargers for the s8 plus. Is anyone able to tell me the difference between the new wireless charger that costs $90 on the Samsung website compared to the older one that is $60. They are both fast charging apparently. Is the only difference the looks and convertibility of the new one? Or, is the new one better for the s8?
    Thank you.

    Both will work just fine. This year's model is convertible and much bigger. If you want smaller and don't care about convertibility save the money and go for last year's model.

    ...or, you can save even more money and get one off of Amazon for around $20. There are a lot of options out there.

    Last year's Samsung wireless chargers support fast charge for recent Samsung devices (most 3rd party do not) and are available as a pad or stand. The new one does everything that last years does, plus it folds from a stand to a pad and is a little funkier-looking -- as well as being more expensive. They will function the same.

    There are good deals on Amazon as stated above, just be sure to buy a Samsung product as wireless fast charging is proprietary to Samsung.

    I believe the new Samsung one, besides being convertible also has a built in fan.

    Last year's versions also have the fan.

    I think you just need to have a charger compatible with Samsung, not Samsung branded.
    Samsung uses universal charging technologies in the S8 (Wireless Charging compatible with WPC and PMA) which is compatible with almost all wireless chargers.
    For fast charging, you get a fast charge wireless charger and you use the charging block and cable that comes with your phone.
    I bought one with my Note7 and used it with my S7E. It worked fine for both.

    Just get something like this and call it a day. No need to pay Samsung $40+ for something that others offer for way cheaper.

    I never knew how much I miss wireless charging until now.

    I've had a LG V20 since turning in my Note 7 and it's such a convenience to simply place the S8+ on my chargers.

    I have a few all over in my home

    Is anyone having issues with wireless charging? I have the one posted above. Fast Charge charger that works with the s7e but it keeps pausing every second. It is not charging the S8+. Tried without my case as well, same issue.

    I have the Choetech one too, but it won't fast charge in portrait with my iBlaison armor box case on. Haven't tried it with my other case or naked yet. However the Samsung charging stand from last year works just fine. The problem with the Samsung stand from last year is it's too short and the phone feels really unstable on portrait mode.

    I have that problem with my S7E and its ungodly frustrating. I'm going to be pretty darn pissed if I also have it with my S8+.

    One of my annoyances with the Samsung charger is that the lip at the bottom is really small. I have a Tyle one that is nice and easy to plop the phone onto. I have to be much more precise putting it on the Samsung one.

    Is the TYLT slow at charging the S8? I have the green one somewhere that I can't find.

    I like the last year's Samsung fast wireless charger, there are always deals on them @ Amazon. If it's ships and sold from Amazon listing, you can even have best buy price match them and pick them up at your local store.

    Yes. Slow charging. I just use it at night next to my bed where it doesn't need to charge fast.

    I do the same and I often don't really need fast wireless charging anyways.

    I often carry a power bank with me so I'm constantly charging and am rarely ever below 50%

    Just came back from the mall and I'm above 90% ........ the convenience of owning and using a handbag haaaaaaa !!
