If you're using a Samsung Galaxy S8 and haven't taken advantage of its wireless charging capabilities, what have you been waiting for? Wireless charging allows you to forgo dealing with cables and have your phone charging on your desk at work or nightstand at home and simply grab it when it's time to get up and go. There's a good variety of styles compatible with the Galaxy S8 and here are the best available options.

Wireless charging is where it's at

Wireless charging becomes that much more of a useful feature the older your phone gets as the battery life naturally slows down. Instead of fussing about with cables, with the right charging pad for your workstation or bedside table you can simply put your phone down and know that it'll be fully charged when you pick it back up.

As you can see you've got some solid options no matter your budget. If the price is no object for you, the Samsung Fast Charge Convertible Wireless Charging Pad (opens in new tab) is the best option that's made by Samsung itself.

For a sleek and stylish option, check out the ESR Mini Portable Wireless Charger (opens in new tab) which is small, light, and highly portable for the frequent traveler — but if you do snag it you'll also want to pick up an Anker Quick Charge 3.0 Wall Charger (opens in new tab) to go with it since it doesn't come with a wall adapter in the box.
