Is it convenient to use wireless charging?
In short, very much. Whether you come home or go to bed. Put your phone on the wireless charging pad and the phone charges in fast or normal mode. Yes, Samsung Wireless Charger Convertible has fast charging function. This is a new technology. It charges the smartphone 50 minutes faster than the one used in the previous generation chargers.
I should note that fast charging is only relevant if the phone is in standby mode. As soon as you turn on the screen, the usual.
From my own experience, the Samsung S8 charges from 0% to 100% in about 2 hours. If you want to use the phone at the same time, the charging time will increase to 3 hours. As for the S8 Plus, given its larger battery, it will take noticeably longer to charge.
When you place your smartphone on the stand, the LED indicator at the bottom lights up. Thus, the user can see whether the battery is charging or not. In the process, this light shines blue, but when it ends, it turns green.
The Samsung Wireless Charger Convertible isn’t cheap, but its bundle is scarce. Charging goes in an economical box with a transparent cover, and there is nothing but an adapter from USB Type-C to microUSB. You will have to use the cable and power adapter that came with your smartphone.
Could, I think, put a good cable along with the wireless charger to have a spare in your bag just in case. I have to pull out the cable every time I go somewhere to recharge my Samsung Galaxy S8 on the go. I don’t like it to say the least.
Wireless Charging for Samsung Galaxy S8: Review and Experience
Today we will talk about the Samsung Wireless Charger Convertible for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Both flagship smartphones come with a regular power supply, so you have to buy a wireless charger separately. I will detail this accessory which wears the model number EP-PG950BBRGRU, and I will share my personal experience of using.
To begin with, the original Samsung Galaxy S8 wireless charger has a foldable design. You can either put the phone down so it looks at you, or just put it down. The adapter unfolds in just two steps: push forward and the panel moves up like a slider, then tilt the cover towards you.
The phone can be charged in any position, whether sideways or on the back.
Materials and build quality
The body is made of high-quality plastic, which does not emit any unnecessary sounds during charging. The mechanism that underlies the folding design works perfectly. No complaints.
I really liked the surface of the adapter. It is very soft, so I don’t worry if my smartphone will get scratched. It feels like it is leather, but in reality it is not. It took too little time to realize how hard this material is, but I can say that nothing happened to it in more than two months. Not even scratches.
Using a more premium material, such as aluminum, is not possible because the metal is in the way of electric current transmission.
Which phones is this wireless charger suitable for??
The Wireless Charger Convertible uses Qi technology, which is widely used by smartphone manufacturers. The list of compatible gadgets includes not only Samsung models. This wireless charger will work with all devices that support the Qi standard.
Specifically, Samsung claims 100% compatibility with the following models:
- Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge
- Galaxy S8 / S8 Plus
The price of the device is 4,990 rubles, which at first glance seems too expensive. Consider the fact that the Wireless Charger Convertible saves you the dreaded wires. Over, this accessory looks very good, especially in black. There is also an option in a light brown shade. In this design it resembles a shell in which a pearl is hiding.
How wireless charging works
Samsung was the first to introduce this technology into its Android devices. Initially, only flagship owners had such an opportunity. But gradually other manufacturers picked up this trend and began to supply more and more of their devices with it.
The principle of operation of this technology is in a special qi module. It connects to the network must be within range of your smartphone. The phone must have a receiver installed. When the devices fall into the range of each other, a magnetic field is created between them, which increases the battery charge on the smartphone.
Which Samsung phones support wireless charging
The ability to charge your phone without using a cable has revolutionized the tech landscape. Do you also want to enjoy a technological innovation? Then it will be useful for you to know which Samsung phones support wireless charging.
Which Samsung smartphones support QI
There are many fast charge models available in Samsung phone lines. The option was first introduced with the Galaxy Note 5. All subsequent Galaxy S generations were equipped with this technology. So far, in the office of the Korean brand, it is believed that only flagships should be provided with this option. However, other manufacturers who have taken up the development are introducing the possibility of charging without a cable not only in premium series.
Top Android phones with wireless charging
Known smartphone models that support this option include:
Senseit W289 is the most affordable model in this collection. It will take about 5 hours to fully replenish the battery.
Doogee S60. A device from a well-known Chinese manufacturer, has a large list of functions at a relatively low price.
Ulefone Power 5. Has a powerful 13000 mAh battery and supports autonomous work for a week. In order to fully charge this impressive unit, it will take 6 to 9 hours of connection to the module.
Lg V30. One of the company’s flagships, allows you to fully charge the device in a matter of hours.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. The large battery can be quickly replenished with the high-speed charging module.
Nokia 8 Sirocco. The flagship of the Finnish manufacturer received “full stuffing”, including a new technology for those times.
Iphone 8 and up. Apple was the first to create and advertise this service.
Unfortunately, all these models do not come with a charging module. You need to buy it separately. If your smartphone does not support this option, do not worry. On the network, you can purchase a special adapter that connects to Type-C or USB connectors. With its help, any smartphone can be charged remotely and without a cable, however, the process speed will remain the same or even slightly decrease due to the lack of the fast charge option.
About charging (FAQ)
The world is becoming mobile and “wireless”.
In the modern world, all file transfer manipulations using a smartphone take place “over the air”. Internet access via wi-fi. At home, at work, in a cafe, they are taken for granted, and rarely anyone has difficulty using it. The time has come for wireless power transmission.
In 2008, the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) was founded, bringing together manufacturers from Europe, Asia and America. The purpose of the “Consortium”. Is the development of a unified standard for wireless charging technology.
As early as 2009, Palm introduced the first wireless charging phone. Later, in September 2012, Nokia introduced 2 smartphones to the market. Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 also support qi standard. Further, large manufacturers of smartphones pulled themselves up. Samsung, Google Nexus (Asus, LG), Sony, etc.
In simple language:
- The charger is connected to a power source.
- A magnetic field is created.
- The smartphone must support wireless charging. Have a built-in receiver or a receiver installed additionally.
- The phone is placed on the charger.
- Smartphone charging starts automatically.
From a technical point of view:
Energy is transferred from the transmitter to the receiver-receiver through an interconnected magnetic field that occurs when an alternating current flows through the transmitter coil.
If the receiver coil is in close proximity, a significant portion of the transmitter’s power lines will pass through the receiver coil, creating an alternating current in the receiver, which is then converted to direct voltage.
Just. Put your smartphone on Qi wireless charging and it will start charging automatically.
Contemporary. All major IT companies are already developing their Qi devices.
Universal. Any device with a Qi receiver / receiver charges with any Qi wireless charger.
Safely. The generated electric field is safe for humans and extends only 1 cm from the device.
Comfortable and convenient. No need for a bunch of wires, which later get tangled or simply lost.
And more smartphone manufacturers are starting to build receiver-receivers into their top models: Apple iPhone XS, XS MAX, XR, X, etc., Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9 / Note 9, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, etc.

If your smartphone is not in the lists above, then you need a universal receiver-receiver that connects to the micro-USB port and attaches under the back cover of the smartphone or under a case.
We conditionally divide wireless chargers into several types by functionality:
- Tabletop. Standard charging stations in the form of a small “platform” on which the phone is placed, or a charger built into the equipment. Lamp, clock, weather station, etc.
- Automotive. Wireless charger for use in the car: with special holders and faucets for the phone and adapters to the cigarette lighter.
- Charging stand. Wireless chargers with stand function, i.E. The phone is at an angle during charging for easy viewing, mail, social networks.
- Qi batteries. Wireless chargers with a built-in battery differ among themselves, in addition to design, the number of additional USB ports and battery capacity. 4000 mAh to 10000 mAh.
- Embedded. Wireless chargers for embedding in tables, cabinets, bar counters. Have a special design and protection against moisture and dust.
And also by scope or place of use:
- At home / in the office
- In the car
- On the road
- Built-in. Already installed in the smartphone by the manufacturer.
If the manufacturer of your phone has not provided for the possibility of wireless charging, it can be easily adapted to this charging! For this, a special film receiver is used. There are several types of them:
- In the form of a film that is installed under the cover of a smartphone. To do this, the phone must have special contacts
- Film that connects to the lighting power port on Apple and micro-usb on Android smartphones.
The film is attached under the phone cover, the functionality of the phone is not reduced. The standard cable can be used simultaneously with the installed film receiver.
This Qi receiver for phones with special contacts is suitable for phones that have special contacts for wireless charging: Samsung Note 4, Samsung Note 3, Samsung Note 2, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S3 and others.
The film is attached to the back of the phone. At the same time, it can be closed with any standard cover: leather, plastic, silicone. This will not affect the charging process. The connector, inseparably connected with the film, must be in the Lightning connector for charging according to the Qi standard. The presence of a film receiver does not cause any inconvenience.
This Apple Qi receiver is suitable for Apple devices with a Lightning connector: Apple iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, 6, 6s, 6Plus, 6SPlus, SE, 7, 7 Plus; iPad Air 2, iPad mini and others (Apple currently does not provide wireless charging without accessories)
Such a universal Qi receiver is suitable for any phone equipped with a USB connector for classic wired charging. The film is attached under the cover or case of the smartphone. The plug, inseparably connected with the film, for charging according to the Qi standard must be in the Micro-usb connector. The presence of a film receiver does not cause any inconvenience.
In phones with a Micro-USB port, the connector can be one of three types, depending on its type, if you put the phone upside down with the screen.
Receiver type “A”
Receiver type “B”
Irregular trapezoidal connector
State of the art oval shaped connector
The “C” type connector appeared relatively recently. It can be found on a few devices. So, type “C” is equipped with MacBook 12 “, Samsung TabPro S, Google Nexus 6P, Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, ZUK Z1, Google Pixel C, Google Nexus 5X, One Plus 2, Acer Aspire Switch 10 V and other devices.
In addition to the above receivers, depending on the location of the connector in the phone, such film receivers may be suitable. They are called side or offset:
Accordingly, each type and position of the connector requires its own Universal Qi Receiver. Having identified the correct type of Micro-USB connector in your phone, you will buy the correct receiver for wireless charging and allow yourself to abandon the wires!
- There are also cases-receivers: the receiver is already built into the case, so just put the case on the phone and it will be able to charge wirelessly.
Wireless charging supplies current. 1 amp and 5 volts. The standard power adapter that comes with the smartphone delivers 1 to 2A. And when charging the phone from a computer (USB port). The phone is charged with a current from 0.5a (USB 2.0) to 0.9a (USB 3.0).
In this regard, you will not even feel the difference in charging time or it will not be significant.
The energy efficiency of Qi wireless chargers is approximately 80%. It should be understood that it is simply impossible to achieve an energy efficiency of 100%, for standard wired chargers this figure ranges from 75% to 95% at best.
Wireless chargers use non-ionizing frequencies that have no harmful physiological effects on humans. Qi 1.2 standard includes the detection of foreign objects in the field of action of the charger, providing additional safety of use; charging is only possible with Qi-compatible devices. Also, our chargers and smartphones have built-in safety mechanisms based on thermal control.

Guide-Apple. Does iPhone 7 support fast and wireless charging??
The entire modern world of an ordinary person and not only is completely tied to the use of a smartphone, and in our case it is the iPhone. Charging is a very important factor, because we already start to panic when we see 20 percent of the charge.
In general, without a smartphone, as without hands. Therefore, to simplify our lives, device manufacturers began to come up with fast and wireless chargers.
Apple likes to add everything gradually, so to speak in portions. Therefore, people are confused if these technologies are in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
This is what we will find out today. There will be little information, but it will be very useful and you will definitely find what you are looking for.
Is there fast and wireless charging on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus?
Let’s fast forward to the recent past, to September 2016, when the presentation of the iPhone 7 has already taken place. Then Apple showed quite a lot of changes and the main feature of course was the dual camera.
Iphone 8 on wireless charging
We changed the design a little, made stereo speakers, the Home button became touch-sensitive and there are many innovations to list, but you simply will not find anything related to charging.
If you take the same Samsung, it had fast charging much earlier and even a special unit is included, but I’m not talking about the wireless one, it first appeared in Note 5 and it was for a minute 2015.
I do not argue that although Apple adds everything gradually, they do it wisely and everything works like clockwork. Apple woke up already in 2017 and added both features to the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (although you need to buy everything separately for crazy money).
This is essentially the answer. You will not find both technologies in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, because they simply are not there and they will not appear in any way. The owners of these smartphones complained quite a lot throughout 2017.
There are of course different solutions with plates and cases for wireless charging, but this venture is definitely not worth your money or time.
With fast charging, it’s a little simpler, it can be partially realized using a 2A power supply. Most often, people use an iPad power supply. Certainly not 50 percent in 30 minutes, but already something.
Samsung wireless chargers. Better or worse than traditional ones
Mobile phones offer new technological solutions every year. Wireless charging isn’t new, but it’s no longer the standard when it comes to smartphones and tablets.
Wireless chargers are becoming more popular, but not as popular as NFC or LTE data transfer. What are the pros and cons of such recharging our batteries?
Some of you will probably notice that the method of recharging power in smartphones and tablets is not entirely wireless.
After all, the base must still be connected with a cable to a power source. It’s hard to disagree with this fact.
Going further along this line of reasoning, we can come to the conclusion that buying a universal docking station with microUSB output will lead to the same.
Over, it will be a cheaper alternative. This is largely true. Probably the only practical difference is the need to properly connect your smartphone or tablet.
For wireless chargers, just place your phone on it. We will probably see more differences once this technology becomes more developed and refined.
The main disadvantages of wireless chargers are longer battery life and more heat generated during the process.
These issues are obviously known to the organizations working on this technology and can be expected to be largely addressed in the near future.
Perhaps in the near future we will be charging our mobile gadgets on tables in cafes, chairs in cinemas or while traveling by train or bus. Success.
Does samsung a8 2018 / a7 2018 / a5 2017 / a7 2018 / a6 / a9 / j7 / a3 2017 / j6 / s7 / j5 / j4 / j6 / s6 / s8 support wireless charging
Wireless charging is incredibly convenient, although it is not without its drawbacks and although only a few phones support it, you can even turn it on at all How to do this I showed on the bottom of the entry.
To make the decision easier, I have prepared a list of Samsung smartphones that support wireless charging. You can charge wirelessly.
Although the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction has been known since the middle of the nineteenth century, it is only now becoming generally accepted.
Unfortunately, the process is very slow, so most of the equipment is still powered by cables.
Induction devices are an extremely convenient solution, but there is one “but”. Samsung phones can be charged in this way if they support one of the charging technologies. “Qi” or “PMA”.
The former will be seen in Apple, Xiaomi or LG, and the latter is mainly supported by Samsung phones. Therefore, when choosing, be careful not to run into an incompatible smartphone.
Samsung has been trying to promote wireless charging technology in its phone models for several years.
Attention: if the manufacturer of your phone has not installed wireless charging, then you can do it yourself for any smartphone. Details here.
Samsung phones that support wireless charging
These are, of course, the latest flagship Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, as well as last year’s Note Galaxy series.
Fortunately, induction charging was also available in slightly older devices. Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, and S7 and S7 Edge supported.
If someone is using older devices, nothing prevents the Galaxy S6 from charging this way. Unfortunately, this technology cannot be found in devices from the middle and lower price shelves of the Samsung.
As a result, in phones like a8 2018, a7 2018, a5 2017, a6, a9, j7, a3, j6, j5, j4 or j6, wireless charging is not supported, but on Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge, Note 5, no problem.
Thank. Everything is detailed and clear even for dummies like me.
First bought and then found out that bummer. Good luck
