Like many other phone manufacturers these days, Samsung didn't bundle a charger in the Galaxy S21, S21+, or S21 Ultra boxes. In fact, it was the first Samsung flagship to not include one.
On that note, if you are still rocking an old charger that is not capable of fast charging your Galaxy S21 you've likely considered getting yourself a more capable one. Well, you are at the right place!

While you are waiting on Samsung's elusive 65W charger that should have been destined for the S21 series, or its rumored new 30W adapter that was supposed to replace the current 25W charger, but never did, you can pick one of the best currently available chargers that are sure to be fast-charge compatible with the S21, the S21+, or S21 Ultra.
Currently, the 120W charging power of the China-only Mi 10 Ultra is the fastest available charger, as the battery has to have the respective chemistry, and the phone the suitable charging circuitry for that ultrafast charging session, too. There are more widespread runner-ups, however, like the Oppo Find X2 Pro or the new OnePlus 8T that come with 65W charging that tops up a 4500mAh unit in less than 40 minutes from depleted state.
Recently, a new Samsung EP-TA865 charger was certified, raising the hopes that the Galaxy S21 Ultra could have landed with a 65W charger, but unfortunately, this didn't happen for the S21 series.
So far so good, but, subsequently, the Galaxy S21 series codenames started appearing next to lesser chargers, and we finally learned that Samsung's good ol' SP-TA800 charger will still be your main way to charge the S21 series if you have it lying around, while the 45W is not compatible, and would actually charge at 15W.
The only compatible fast charger is the one Samsung packs with the Note 20 Ultra, and is of the 25W variety. A more powerful charger could've filled up your S21 model a tad quicker, as you can see in the testing video below, but the 25W threshold is still fast enough to top up your S21 Ultra in about an hour - an amazing feat considering it has a 5000mAh battery.
