A look at the new Samsung Qi Wireless Charging Pad

Samsung Qi charger

Samsung needed a new wireless charger to pair up with the Galaxy S6, and it's a pretty nice piece of gear.

Even though it didn't actually offer a phone with Qi charging built-in, Samsung has previously sold a basic Qi charger for those who added it after the fact to their phone. Now that the Galaxy S6 has wireless charging from the start, it was as good a time as any for Samsung to refresh its wireless charger with a new design. The Wireless Charging Pad, as it's simply known, now looks like it belongs in the same design category as the GS6 and will likely be added on to plenty of phone orders in the coming months.

A quick look at wireless charging tech for the car


If there's one place wireless charging is undeniably useful, it's in the car.

While we've been given a reason to think otherwise with the microUSB requirement in Android Auto and the existence of Quick Charge 2.0 accessories for the car, the ability to pop your phone into a car dock and know that it is already charging your phone is a huge deal for folks that spend a lot of time in the car. No need to mess around with cables, just a decent place to hold your phone while on the road. If wireless charging is the way your want your tech to be powered in the car, there's a couple of unique options for you to consider that are all more than capable of getting the job done, and we've spent a little time with all of them.
