Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible Stand Review
We recommend Samsung's Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible Stand because it doesn't make you you choose between a wireless pad or stand, it's designed with the pains of other wireless chargers in mind, and it works well.
This charger can used as a pad or a stand for when you want to use your phone while it charges. The faux leather top replaces the plastic most wireless chargers use and keeps your phone from sliding off due to the charging process or notification vibrations.
There's also a built in fan to keep the charger cool and a small notification light to let you know your phone is properly aligned. Most users also report being able to charge their phones through cases, even Otterbox Defenders.
What Could Be Better
Fast charging only works on Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+ and later models, but it charges all Qi-enabled phones.
Most complaints about this charger come from Note 8 users. The main issue reported is that the Note 8 doesn't stay connected or charge at all when the charger is in the stand position. Though the good reviews vastly outweigh the bad, given the price, we recommend Samsung's pad charger for Note 8 users.
Speaking of cost, $90 is a lot to shell out for a charger, no matter how nice it looks. This charger is currently about $49 on Amazon, but several Amazon reviews for this model reported authenticity issues. Until this is resolved, we recommend buying this product from Best Buy, which does price matching.
Warranty & Customer Support
We reached out to Samsung to find more information regarding their warranty to no avail, but this charger can be returned to Best Buy within 15 days of purchase.
