Best wireless chargers for your Galaxy S21
The Samsung Galaxy S21 series is here, and it is shaping up to be quite the good start for Samsung. More colors, top specs, and refreshed design – what's not to like?

One of the "features" of the Galaxy S21 series is the lack of a charger inside the Galaxy S21 boxes. The staple accessory has been inside pretty much any smartphone package forever, but Apple's courage is once again sending ripples throughout the industry and causing Android's mightiest to follow suit.

As Samsung didn't include a power brick, why not skip getting one yourself and jump straight to the wireless future? Surely, there's still some wiring involved between a power outlet and the wireless charger itself, but you will be sparing yourself from constantly plugging and unplugging your phone, and that's an important quality-of-life improvement.

The Galaxy S21 has been certified for 9W reverse wireless charging, 25W wired charging, and up to 15W of wireless charging with compatible chargers.

So, what are some of the best wireless chargers that will let you charge your next Galaxy phone wirelessly?

Best wireless chargers for your Galaxy S21:


Samsung 15W Fast Charge 2.0 Wireless Charger Stand


Samsung 15W Fast Charge 2.0 Wireless Charger Stand

- Fast Wireless Charging 2.0-compatible, up to 15W.

Buy at Amazon

Undoubtedly, this one is the perfect match for your next Galaxy. As it supports Samsung's proprietary Fast Wireless Charging 2.0, it's capable of delivering a 15W charge to your device wirelessly. This means that theoretically your phone won't charge as fast as it would with a wired charger, but it would still be faster than what most run-of-the-mill wireless chargers could deliver. 

Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 is supported by Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, S10e, S10, S10+, Note 20, Note 20+, Note10, and Note10+, but the upcoming Galaxy S21 family of phones will certainly support it as well. This doesn't mean you can't charge your non-Samsung Qi-enabled device on this wireless charger, it's just that your charging speed may vary. 

The Wireless Charger Stand is equipped with a fan to cool off the internals as well as LED lights. Both of these can be disabled as you wish to ensure for a good night's sleep. The charger comes with a power brick and USB-A to USB-C cable.



Samsung 15W Wireless Charger Duo Pad

- Fast Wireless Charging 2.0-compatible, up to 15W, charges two devices simultaneously.

Buy at Amazon

In case you've got a Samsung wearable or are planning to get one along with your S21, then the Wireless Charger Duo Pad would be the perfect match for your wireless charging needs. As evident by its design, this charge lets you charge a phone and a smartatch/earbuds simultaneously, which is a mighty convenient option. You can also charge a second Galaxy phone if that's necessary. 

With Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 support, this dual-charging pad can also deliver a maximum 15W charging speed. A pretty neat option to consider if you'd love to supplement your Galaxy S21 experience with another Samsung wearable. Still, have in mind that charging two devices at the same time might have a slightly negative effect on charging speeds.



Samsung Wireless Charger Trio


Wireless Charger Trio

- Charge up to three Qi-enabled devices simultaneously.

Buy at Amazon

Now, if you're deep into the Samsung ecosystem or you're planning on getting up to three devices simultaneously, then the Wireless Charger Trio might just save you from getting tangled in all those wires. Consisting of a wide charging mat and a dedicated round indent for charging a smartwatch, the Charger Trio is pretty flexible as it lets you juice up any combinations of products. 

While it would work with any Qi-enabled device, Samsung's own wares are best suited to work in concert with the charging pad. The problem with this charger is the fact that it doesn't support Fast Wireless Charging 2.0, so it can't juice up your devices at up to 15W. Regardless, we've included it as a viable accessory for the Galaxy S21 series due to the exceptional convenience it offers.

Samsung Portable Wireless Charger



This one combines the ease of use of Qi wireless charging with the convenience of a portable battery bank. Sadly, it doesn't support fast-charging and can only deliver around 7.5W of wireless power to your Galaxy phone, but once again, we've chosen to include it as it's a pretty convenient accessory. 

The 10,000mAh capacity will let you top up your Galaxy S21 up to two times depending on which model you go for, and aside from charging one device with the Qi plate at the top, you can also juice up two other devices thanks to the USB ports on deck. Mind you, this powerbank supports 25W superfast wired charging, which could come in handy if you're in a hurry.

Spigen Convertible Fast Wireless Charger



Spigen's take on the wireless charging business is a convertible one: you can use it as a convenient stand to prop up your phone up, or push it down to have a charging pad. Aside from this multifunctionality, this wireless charger is also rated at up to 15W of wireless charging, which is fast enough to meet the demands of all the current Samsung flagships and certainly satisfy Galaxy S21's power hunger.

Anker PowerWave Stand Wireless Charger


Anker Wireless Charger, PowerWave Stand

-10W Fast-Charging

Buy at Amazon

If a charging stand is your cup of tea, you can get this Anker PowerWave Stand. It features a high-efficiency chipset that provides 10W high-speed charging for Samsung Galaxy phones. You can use your Galaxy S21 in both portrait and landscape modes while charging, making this charger the perfect movie marathon stand. No charger in the box though, so you'll have to use your own or buy one separately.

Spigen Leather Charging Pad


Spigen Wireless Leather Charging Pad

-10W wireless charging with Control Heat Technology

Buy at Amazon

The Leather Charging Pad from Spigen combines great portability with stylish design. There's a cool textured leather patch in the center of the ring but it's not all cosmetics. This wireless charging pad features overheat prevention with Control Heat Technology, and also a clever Control Light tech so it won't interrupt your sleep. It's case-friendly but the adapter is not included in the box.
