Wireless charging used to be slower than traditional wired wall chargers that come in the box making it convenient, but also impractical. However with the Galaxy Note 5 last year Samsung introduced Fast Wireless Charging which is 1.4x faster than older methods. And while wall chargers will still give you a full battery faster, it’s not by much, making wireless charging an excellent feature that many love.

Before we begin it’s worth mentioning that there are two different methods of wireless charging: PMA like at some coffee shops, and Qi charging which is the most popular method. Thankfully the Galaxy Note 7 supports both both. That means chargers bought online will work, mats at Starbucks or the airport, and even pads in some newer vehicles can all charge the Note 7. That being said, only “Fast Wireless Chargers” will do it at the speed we want.

Also, aside from the official pad made and sold by Samsung, all of these wireless charging pads and stands need to be plugged into the “Adaptive Fast Charger” wall plug that comes in the Note 7 box, otherwise they won’t work at the faster speeds. Meaning the phone will take over two hours to recharge, instead of just over 90 minutes or so. Keep that in mind, buy an extra charger from Samsung, then buy one of the excellent Galaxy Note 7 fast wireless charging pads linked to below.

The official Samsung "Fast Wireless Charger" is the best option, but it costs a little more than most. It's made by Samsung so you know it will work no matter what, comes in black or white, and comes with its own wall wart and cable so you don't have to use the one from the Note 7 box.  Samsung released this with the Note 5, and has another model available that doubles as a stand. If you want a pad get this one linked to below, or the stand we just mentioned.
