Samsung's insane 45W charger is already discounted by a cool 22 percent on Amazon

Samsung's insane 45W charger is already discounted by a cool 22 percent on Amazon
There are a lot of things to like about the Galaxy Note 10+, which isn't just a larger variant of Samsung's newest "regular" flagship. The plus-sized phone obviously packs a plus-sized battery as well, and that 4,300mAh monster can keep the lights on for many hours on end after spending very little time hugging a wall.

While the Note 10 Plus technically supports up to 45-watt charging speeds, the power brick that comes included in the retail box as standard with the 6.8-inch handset can only deliver 25W rates. That's way better than the modest 5W chargers bundled with the iPhone XS and XS Max, which helped the hot new Android powerhouse shine in our in-depth review recently, needing a little over an hour to take the aforementioned 4,300mAh cell from 0 to 100 percent capacity.
But if you want to get the most out of the theoretical capabilities of the Galaxy Note 10+, you can buy an optional 45W USB-C fast charging wall charger from Samsung at a typical price of $49.99. That may sound expensive at first, although Apple sells a significantly humbler 30W USB-C power adapter (without a cable) at the exact same price. Even better, Amazon is offering a 22 percent discount at the time of this writing on Samsung's "Super Fast Charging" brick in your choice of black or white colors.
There are absolutely no strings attached to this deal, which shaves a decent $11.07 off the list price of the blazing fast 45W charger, but you might want to keep in mind that the product is in pretty high demand, currently needing between one and two months to be delivered to your doorstep. That probably means the price will go up or the charger itself will go out of stock altogether soon enough, so if you own a Note 10+ and don't mind waiting, you should pull the trigger ASAP. 

Of course, the 45-watt power brick can be used with any USB-C device, but for the time being, the Note 10+ is the only one capable of reaching those sky-high charging speeds.

Samsung is copying apple again for not including this in their flagships. It should be free with the phone.

Of course it would be nice if it was in the box right away. However, as an iPhone user I would be happy with the 25w charger instead of the 5w charger Apple is including.

Fun fact #1: The 45W charger is only faster than the 25w one by few minutes. Fun fact #2: The 25W charger was able to fully charge the 4300 mah battery in 68 minutes, while the P30 Pro's 40W charger took 63 minutes to fully charge the 4200mah battery. This just proves that the Samsung 25W charger, is as fast as Huawei's 40W charger, and is faster than every other charger, including OnePlus's 30W charger.

Yup. Samsung's charger is really fast but one concerning thing about it is that it doesn't throttle enough in the last minutes to preserve the battery life. Usually chargers drop down to hardly 5 watts in last 10-15% to not harm the battery, but not in Note10+. Hope Samsung has made sure this doesn't affect battery much overtime

Actually, if you have watched any charging speed tests, it does throttle. I'm sure Samsung has learned their lesson after the Note 7 fiasco.

Fastest charger costs extra and no headphone jack, two d!ck moves that Samsung copied from Apple. This is why Huawei is needed, to challenge the status quo of those two (Apple and Samsung) dinosaurs.

The included charger is 500% faster than Apple's. Don't get your panties in a wad.

Huawei P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro do not have a 3.5mm headphone jack only the cheaper models do. And so far Huawei give fast chargers for free but there will come a time where they will charge consumers same as Samsung and Apple. I remember a time when Huawei and One Plus were alot cheaper then Samsung and Apple and now their devices retail at similar prices.

Samsung gave $50 off for preordering the Note 10. They gave $600 off for trading in a used Pixel 3xl (could be bought used for $350) so another $250 off. They gave $150 in free accessories. They gave 10% off with referral code and another $80 off with Unidays discount.. do the math. How could you complain when a 25w fast charger is included and you can use free credit for wireless buds, wireless charger, 45w fast charger or whatever else you want and still get a bigger screened notchless higher specs flagship than Apple for practically 1/2 the price.
