One of the new features Samsung touted with the launch of the Note 5 and S6 Edge+ was Fast Charge Wireless Charging support. Those of us who use Fast Charge on the wire know that it is something special. Samsung is now betting on a cord-free future.
Unfortunately, we’re not there yet. And if you want to be on the cutting edge, it’s gonna cost ya. Samsung has now opened the product page for its fast wireless charger, with a steep $70 price tag.
To recap, on supported devices, this charger will wirelessly charge up to 1.4x faster than standard wireless charging pads. The 3,000 mAh battery on the Note 5 and S6 Edge+ is said to go from 0% to 100% in just under 2 hours. In comparison, typical Qi wireless charging pads go for under $20 on online outlets such as Amazon.
If you’re picking up a shiny new Samsung phablet soon, you’ll have to decide if $70 is worth the bump up in charging speed. The fast wireless charger is offered in either White or Black colors.
Who else was wishing that Samsung’s new wireless charger would be included in the box with our new phones?
