Best Wireless Charging Pads for Samsung Galaxy S9 Android Central 2019

The Galaxy S9 is still a great phone in 2019, and because it supports wireless charging you may want to stock up on wireless chargers for different rooms in your home or at the office. There's a large number of options out there for wireless charging, but not all are made equal. We've highlighted the best options that work with the Galaxy S10, including a mix of chargers from Samsung and other reputable third-party brands.

Soft touch finish: iOttie iON Wireless Qi Charging Pad Mini

Staff pick

From iOttie comes this stylish charger that's Qi-compatible with a charging zone capable of 10W output. A soft fabric finish available in your choice of four colors makes this a wireless charger that will actually look great on your office desk or end table.

Best from Samsung: Samsung Fast Charge Convertible Wireless Charging Pad

Samsung's wireless charging pad combines the best wireless charging technologies packed into a really sleek design. Launched alongside the Galaxy S8, it features a premium leather-like appearance and ingenious design which allows you to easily convert this pad into an angled charging stand.

Old school cool: Samsung Wireless Charging Pad

Samsung's old style of the wireless charging pad is still a reliable option for the Galaxy S9. These charging pads look like mini-UFOs and are Fast Charge-compatible. It also ships with a Samsung 2A wall charger — always great — and comes with a standard one-year warranty.

Budget Pick: Anker Qi-Certified Wireless Charger

Our most budget-conscious pick on the list spares no quality or features. Anker, a well-known brand, offers a 7.5W Qi wireless charger that is extremely thin and low-profile with a larger charging coil that dissipates the heat over a wide surface area.

More power: Anker 10W Qi-Certified Wireless Charger

If speedy charging is what you're after, you'll want to spend a bit more on this Anker charging pad. You'll need a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger (we'll link to one below) to get the best speeds, but beyond that, the pad has some nifty features including the LED indicators around the edges that will turn off when charging is complete.

Best for the office: Spigen Qi Wireless Charging Stand

Spigen's charging stand is angled, making this a great option for your office desk so you can easily see your display while your phone is charging. This stand features three charging coils that allow you to charge your Galaxy S9 in vertical or horizontal orientations — but you'll need to supply your own 10W wall adapter for best charging results.

Finding the right style that fits your needs

Which charger you go with will ultimately depend on your budget and design preference, but I personally use and recommend the iOttie iON Mini. It offers support for wireless fast charging to top up your Galaxy S9 as fast as possible. I also personally love the fabric finish and it never looks out of place whether it's on a bedside table, in the living room, or set up at my office desk.

Of course, if you spend just a bit more you can snag the stylish Samsung Convertible Wireless Charging Pad/Stand, which is even better at a discounted price compared to the price when it first launched. It's a specifically smart option if you love using Samsung phones and can easily convert into a stand for better viewing angles at your desk.

No matter what charging stand you choose, you'll probably need a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger to get the best charging speeds.
