    Works fantastic... except when it doesn't.

    I bought this on kind of an impulse in order to take advantage of a sale, so I hadn't had a chance to read reviews beforehand, and now I'm on the fence about returning it. It looks good, works well, charges fairly quickly, and doesn't run hot or cause my phone to heat up like some other wireless chargers do. However, getting it to make a solid connection on the first try is a bit like playing nickle slots at the casino. If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try, try, try, try... oh, there it goes. Never mind. Try, try, there, got it! I'm not sure if the problem is with the charger, my phone (Galaxy S9+), or the thick case I have on for protection (Otterbox Defender series), but I think that in the two weeks I've been using this charger, I've gotten a first time connection all of twice. Way more often than not I havce to pick the phone up and set it down three, four, or sometimes seven times, slightly repositioning it each time, until the charging light stays lit for more than 15 seconds before flashing at me and my phone stating, "Wireless charging paused." I really, really do like this charger. And if it made a good connection on the first attempt even 80% of the time I'd probably not have a bad thing to say about it. But the fact that it's maybe only about 5% of the time that I'm connecting on the first try that is making me think this isn't working out. As a comparison, even with my big ol' Otterbox case on, my wife's Mophie wireless charger connected with my phone and charged it on the first attempt on all three attempts. The downside was that the back of the case was warm to the touch when I removed it from the charger, so I definitely feel safer using the Samsung charger. So... choose your battles carefully, I guess. 3 stars out of 5.

    reliable, but only relatively fast

    I love this wireless charger. I use it with my iPhone X at work on my desk. I also bought this charger as a gift for two other people who use Samsung phones. Here are some random thoughts about the charger: -The convenience in these wireless chargers are what i value the most. Being able to sit at my desk, not having to fumble with unplugging and replugging cables in every time i want to look at my phone is a great value add to me. -Although I am an iPhone user, I am also a Samsung fanboy, especially since (in my experience) they make very well made and reliable products. This follows suit. As I said, i purchased 3 of these. I have had no issues, and i have not been notified of any issues with their wireless chargers. -It charges faster than my other wireless charger, but does not match the speed of a wired fast charger (such as lightning or USB-C). Fortunately, if you are a Samsung user, you could always unplug the cable running into the wireless charger and get a better speed that way. If you are looking for speed and you are an iPhone user, i would suggest purchasing the Apple 29w USB C brick as well as the USB C to lightning cable. -One downside to this product (and all wireless chargers) is it is not extremely portable. I would not purchase this to be used as a main charger --- it functions way better as a charger you leave at work or next to your bedside table. -Another downside to this product is you need to be aware of how you set the phone down on the chargers. The better lined up the phone is on the wireless charger, the better it will charge. i have heard that the wireless chargers with the vertical stand eliminate part of the guesswork in centering your phone, but honestly, as soon as i was made aware of how to line it up, it has been a non-issue for me. Overall, I would recommend this product to someone who was trying to simply their charging experience

    This was my first ever experience with a wireless charger. Not too long after I tried it, I understood why this piece in particular was an open box. (Meaning it had been previously returned.) For me, this piece only selectively worked. That’s NOT the way it’s supposed to work (and why I gave this one 3 stars). I have since experienced how amazing the technology COULD be. Ironically, when I was returning this device, another customer asked if I knew why using a wireless charger is so great? No. So she explained to me that the phone’s battery is made up of quadrants. When only charged by a plug, the upper quadrants don’t receive as good of a charge as the lower quadrants. “This is why a battery charge doesn’t last very long.” When you place your phone flat on a charger, all of the battery is being charged at once. Meaning, the whole battery is able to fully charge. (This is flat in relation to the device. It can be charging at an angle, if that is how the charger is designed.) Sure enough, I used the new charger I replaced this piece with for the first time. And then I went for two days without needing to recharge. Honestly, my phone’s battery wasn’t nearly out at that point, so I could have gone for longer. But coming from a daily charging mentality, two days was huge for me. I’m going to see how long I can go next time. If your device supports it, I highly recommend wireless charging. The higher the amp output, the better. However, if you have a pop socket (or other handling supportive device) on the back of your phone, it won’t work through that device. It puts your phone too far away from the charger for them to connect.

    Good - Protects your phone's connection jacks.

    F A S T ! Yes, it really really is much faster than USB charging. For this reason alone it is worth buying it. (You must have a newer phone that can support rapid recharge.) The weakest points on Samsung phones: thin glass & the power jack. Too much force on the jack & it snaps, breaking inside the phone - no more recharging. Dead $800 brick. This wireless hockey puck solves this problem by recharging without physical connections. Just set your phone CENTERED on top of the device, the phone chimes a sound, displays a "spash" effect of graphics, & the charging base lights up and the phone begins rapidly recharging. Two things: 1. It really has to be centered to work. But after practicing a few times you will get the hang of it & it becomes super easy to use. 2. I would have liked the whole base station to light up, or a ring of light light up and pulse, 'breathing' fade in, fade out lighting: white light while charging, & a steady green light when full. The base only has a small light on it & you basically have to go over to the phone & look at the screen to see if it is full yet. I use the app: "Battery HD Pro" which displays all your battery's information, run time, and you can tell it to speak to you when the phone is done recharging. A female voice chimes in & speaks aloud and says, "The Battery is Fully Charged" once it reaches 100% power full. The base charges right through even thick armored cases, you do Not have to remove your phone from its protective case, and that is wonderful ! :-) A HUGE thank you to the BestBuy staff members who saved me from buying the older, slower model. THANK YOU ! :-D The slower model still works great with all compatible Samsung phones, but only this newer model can do the faster rapid recharge with the newer Samsung phones. I am happy with this purchase.

    Works great with iPhone X

    I bought this Samsung Fast Charge wireless charger to use with the iPhone X, after being pleasantly surprised while demoing it in-store. It works perfectly fine through the Apple leather case, and begins charging before I even set the phone down. Wasn't expecting that degree of success! I also didn't intend on buying a wireless charger, but have found it to be a worthwhile convenience, especially during the day when you don't plan on using your phone for a little while and want to recharge your battery with ease - just set it on the pad, no fishing out cables and plugging them in. Does require the phone to be decently centered on the charger's surface, but the LED indicator will blink to let you know if you've misplaced it. I don't find it to be troublesome to correctly place the phone, but it's not exactly something you can do without paying attention to. Speaking of the LED indicator, it's a little bright in a dark room, but only occupies the front of the charger, so it can be angled away from you if used while sleeping at night. Can't comment on whether or not this particular charger will fast charge the iPhone X, as Apple has not yet implemented this functionality into iOS. I feel like it may not work, as Apple likes to restrict perks like this to approved hardware (MFi.) This is purely speculation; time will tell. In the meanwhile, the standard charge of 5W is equivalent to what is included in the box with any new iPhone, and I'm happy with that for the time being.

    Case does matter

    I love being able to use the wireless charger next to my bed so that i don't have to mess with stupid cables and such. Simple to just put on the charger and fall asleep. I use the Samsung Galaxy S7 with no issues. Light is blue when charging, green when done. I found the light to be a little too bright for the bedroom, but it is what it is. Though they do not advertise it, I found that this also works on LG optimus that have the technology built into them, as well as the moto 360 watch (i haven't tested anything further) The moto 360 caps out at 80% when charging and the LG does fully charge. Pricing is steep on this, but in the end that is the price of convenience. As for the case, I recommend using the testing unit in store to see if your case is compatible with the wireless charging. I had an issue with the Platinum cases that caused hardware issues to the phone (the home buttons no longer worked unless you took it out of the case and they wouldn't light up if you restarted the phone). I currently use the Otterbox symmetry case which has no issues on the wireless charging capabilities.

    Performs as Promised

    My Note 5 decided to stop charging through the port last night, so I needed to pick something up today to get me through while I decided about getting it fixed. I got this and 2 other wireless chargers (the blue Tylt and the Insignia Wireless Charging Pad). This is the only one that delivered on all points it promised - fast charging and no fuss. There's not much more I can say, except I managed to get it for $37.49 in store, which is incredible considering it was $49.99 when I was looking online last night. Thanks to this, I might not even get the port fixed - I can work around it for the most part. The only reason I have to fix it is because it renders my 20,000MAH power bank useless, which limits the Pokemon Go-ing. For comparison: The Tylt would only charge my phone in landscape, which was unfortunate. Originally $29.99, I found it here online for $21.99, and got it for $12.37 in-store, so not a bad deal. I might keep it for work, but it's also somewhat annoying because it comes with one of those 1-pin old-style wall adapters (which is going to be harder to find if it breaks), and it was a little fussy to connect. The Insignia just would not fast charge, even though it says it "supports fast wireless charging" right on the box. Originally $29.99, I got it in-store for $22.49. This one was super-annoying in that you can ONLY use the packaged wall adapter (can you say money-suck?) - I tried plugging the USB part of the cord into my Samsung wall adapter to get a fast charge and it would fluctuate between normal charging (blue) and not charging (red).

    So, far I'm really happy with this. I'm a total gadget person so this is right up my alley. I did opt for the device without the stand which works better for me. I do like that the cord on this is much longer than the traditional charger provided with the S7 Edge. When you place the phone on the pad, you do have to move it around a little to find the sweet spot for charging. You'll know because the phone will beep and a blue light will appear along the outer rim of the charging pad. It charges super fast. I'll have my battery life at less than 10% and after 15 minutes it's up over 90%. One thing I really like about this is that the pad and your phone will emit a green light when the charge has reached 100%. The pad will stop charging the phone when this is reached so you don't have to worry about overcharging the battery. I'm officially spoiled and this device will become a mandatory accessory for all future devices.
