When it comes to Apple smartphones, you already know what to expect, as Apple has their iPhone lineup without any spinoffs or different names. Everything is standardized. However, when it comes to another flagship company, such as Samsung, everything isn’t so clear cut and that’s because they have their major flagship phones, like the Galaxy S and Note series.
At the same time, Samsung also has their many other smartphones that are a lower tier in terms of specs, but at the same time, the other smartphones still make use of some great specs that can be worth it. Two of these smartphones are the Galaxy A9 and the Galaxy A7. What makes it worth getting these phones?
Well, firstly, they still have some good specs. With the A7 making use of 6GB of RAM, the A9 actually has more RAM with 8GB. The battery capacity fo the A9 is pretty good with a 3,800mAh battery capacity and the A7 is tailing right behind it with a 3,300mAh battery. Also, one of the best features is that both still make use of Samsung’s Super AMOLED display which is known to be one of the best in the market in terms of smartphones.
To top it all off, they’re all fast charging compatible, which means that you can use a Quick Charge charger to fast charge either to them. In this guide, we’re going to be focusing on the fast chargers that you can use for the A7 and the A9.
After you’re definitely going to be using a lot of power with the A7 using three back cameras and the A9 actually uses 4 cameras. So let’s get started.
Anker PowerPort Speed 4 USB Wall Charger
When it comes to charging with a wall charger, then you’re likely going to want a charger that uses multiple ports. The reason for that is fast charging your Samsung smartphone and also charging other devices at once can be highly useful. To start out with, this is the Anker PowerPort Speed 4 wall charger.
The charger makes use of four ports, just as the name implies. There’s one Quick Charge port, to fast charge any Quick Charge compatible smartphone and the other four ports are standard. Each of the standard ports has a 5V/2.4A charging speed. The max output of the wall charger is 43.5W. So even when you’re using the full power of the Quick Charge port, there’s still quite a good amount of power left to use with the standard ports.
Of course, not power related, but one of the best reasons to get this charger is the form factor. It’s a wall charger with a built-in retractable AC adapter that can make the charger a lot more portable friendly. It’s even possible to place this charger into a pocket, too.

The other two chargers that we want to recommend are desktop charging stations, which are basically wall chargers with more ports, and they use a power cord, as they’re larger and heavier and wouldn’t work with a built-in AC adapter.
So this is another Anker charger, it’s their PowerPort Speed 5 desktop charger. It makes use of five ports, with two of the ports featuring Quick Charge, so you can actually fast charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphones at the same time, and have them fast charging.
The other four ports are standard ones that each have a 5V/2.4A charging speed.

Aukey 6-Port Desktop Charger with Two Quick Charge Ports
Another desktop charger that’s similar to the previous Anker charger that we mentioned, is this Aukey charger. In this case, this Aukey charger makes use of six charging ports, with two of the ports making use of Quick Charge to fast charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphones at the same time.
The other four ports each have a 5V/2.4A charging speed. This is definitely one of the best desktop chargers to get if you want to have the ability to charge many devices at once, especially for charging multiple Quick Charge smartphones at the same time. It can be a perfect charger to place in the living room or within a dorm room to share with family or friends.

When it comes to getting a power bank for either the Galaxy A9 or the Galaxy A7, then you want to get either a mid-range or high capacity portable charger. The reason for that is because both of the phones have relatively large batteries so you want to have the ability to charge them to full power a few times, and you also want to have some good range of portability.
The first power bank that we have to recommend comes from EasyAcc, a brand that has a few portable chargers on the market, but for the ones that they do have, they provide a lot of quality. This EasyAcc MegaCharge portable charger of theirs has a 16,750mAh power capacity.

So the output charging consists of two ports, with one featuring Quick Charge to fast charge the A7 and A9. The other USB-A ports is a standard port that’s more powerful than most other standard ports as it has a 5V/3.0A charging speed, rather than a 2.4A speed.
Then there’s the recharging, and you can recharge this power bank using two input ports at the same time. There’s a USB-C input with a 3A input and a Micro-USB input with a 2A speed. Once you use them at the same time you can recharge this power bank at a 5A speed and that results in a 3.5 hour full recharge time.
