To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I like this unit. It charges the phone just fine. I bought it for the following reasons. I purchased a Samsung S20+5G phone and I wanted a wireless means of charging. This appeals to me because if I need to use the phone while charging, just pick it up and there is no attached wire to fuss about. I was also concerned with the charging port wear and tear from simply plugging and unplugging the charging cable. Replacing the port would be quite expensive and eventually inevitable--to be avoided. This wireless charger eliminates that problem. There are two less than perfect aspects about the Samsung 15W Fast Charger: First, it is much slower than using the Samsung cable charger: about 2/3 slower. Second the enclosed power supply is a US unit and the plug pins are very different from the Australian standard. These are why I didn't give it 5 stars. However, neither are a real problem and by no means a deal breaker. I'm retired with lots of time and slower charge is of no consequence for me. The charging power supply can be used by either purchasing an adapter from a travel or electronics store, or simply bending the US pins carefully and they will fit Aussie power sockets. The power supply is rated for use on 110 to 240V, so that is not a problem. Full confession; I chose to use pliers to bend the pins...it worked. Now you can scream at me!
These are awesome! Inside the box, there's a power adapter (that plugs into the wall), the charging dock itself, and a charging chord with USB-C connections on each end (which plugs into the power adapter and the dock). I am not sure if this chord transfers data, but it might be a good idea to test that out in case you ever need to use it for something else, like phone-to-tablet/PC file sharing. I haven't tried it yet.
It charges fast...in the 5 minutes it took me to put this review together, it charged my phone from 77% to 87%, so it's quick. I will probably buy another one for my desk at work!
Also, since the headphone jack is on the bottom of my Galaxy S10+, I had to turn the phone sideways while it was sitting in the charging dock if I wanted to plug in my earbuds while charging...You can sit it vertically or sideways and it will still charge just fine. It's amazing and it looks great!
**UPDATE** Okay, after living with these things for a couple of weeks now, I changed the review from 5 stars to 4 stars. The charger is noisy...like, a supersonic, high-pitched noise starts happening when the phone is charging. At night, when all is quiet, it's very audible. I can even hear it when I'm watching movies in bed. I have two of these chargers, and they both do it. Also, the phone gets pretty hot when it is charging. Heat = death to electronics, which makes me nervous. Anyway, now you know everything!
Increíble, se activa el ventilador para disipar el calor y permitir la carga inalámbrica rápida, es muy grande por lo que permite que equipos del mismo tamaño permanezcan estables cuando los carga. La carga inalámbrica siempre será más lenta que la normal.
Works as advertised. Using an Otterbox Pro case. Despite the thickness of the Otterbox the phone charges effortlessly due to the charging power of the Samsung unit. Well worth the purchase as getting away from plugging the phone is a luxury.
Lo estuve buscando en tiendas en México y al parecer no está disponible. Es muy cómodo pero carga más lento que un cable conectado directamente a la luz, si es importante checar compatibilidad, con modelos viejos no funciona.
