Bluetooth earbuds have placed the Bluetooth accessory market into overdrive, and this is mainly due to Apple’s choice of no longer using a headphone jack starting with their iPhones. Then that choice spread to other smartphone brands, even among the ones that criticized Apple for doing so, such as Google and Samsung. Of course, the choice of going all-in with Bluetooth does have its benefits as the market for Bluetooth earbuds has made it so many brands, small and big are competing.
With that said, among the bigger brands, Samsung’s Galaxy Buds are the ones that rank higher due to the quality that they deliver. One of the main features that these top brands have in common is that their cases are wireless charging compatible. In this guide, we’re covering the wireless chargers that are best for wireless charging your Galaxy Buds case, as using wired charging for a Bluetooth accessory just seems like a step back.
CHOETECH 5 Coil Wireless Charging Pad
The great thing about wireless charging for the Galaxy Buds and all wireless charging cases for Bluetooth earbuds is that they use the same Qi charging tech that is used for smartphones. However, when it comes to charging earbud cases, you will have to use pads, and not stands.
This CHOETCEH charging pad is quite a bit different than most on the market because it uses 5 charging coil, while most others use a charging coil. Most charging pads use a single-coil, and the negative part about that is the coil in the wireless charger and the device that it’s charging has to be aligned for charging to take place.
With the use of 5 coils, this charger enables you to place your Galaxy Buds case anywhere and the case will charge. Also, another benefit of using so many coils is that you’re able to charge two devices at the same time. This includes being able to charge your Galaxy Buds case and a smartphone at the same time, you may also charge two smartphones at the same time.
Charging power is not lacking either as the CHOETECH charger can deliver 10W for Samsung Qi wireless charging smartphones, 7.5W for iPhones, and 5W for all other wireless charging smartphones. The pad uses a USB-C input port, and fortunately, included in the box is a Quick Charge wall charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable, so you’re able to use the charger right out of the box.
Specs of the CHOETECH 5-Coil Dual Wireless Charger:
Samsung Fast Wireless Charging: 10W
iPhone Fast Wireless Charging: 7.5W
Standard Wireless Charging: 5W
- Input: 18W
- LED Power Indicator: Green Power Indicator
- Size: 6.7 x 3 x 0.5 inches
- Weight: 12 Ounces
Spigen 10W USB-C Wireless Charging Pad
On a simpler side, there’s this Spigen wireless charging pad, and one of the main reasons it’s so simple is because of its size. The charger has a diameter of 2.7 inches, so it won’t be taking up much space at all on your computer desk or any other surface you place it on. Also, the charger only uses a single coil, so you will have to place your Galaxy Bud case, or a smartphone in the middle for charging to happen.
The charging power is not lacking though, despite the pad’s small size. The charger is capable of 10W fast wireless charging, 7.5W fast wireless charging for iPhones, so if you’ve got a Samsung smartphone which you likely might if you’re a Galaxy Buds user, then you’re able to charge your phone at 10W wirelessly. In addition to the powerful charging, the pad uses a USB-C input port to be powered from, much better than the dated Micro-USB port that is still used on quite a few wireless chargers.
The pad also comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable in the box that can be used to power the wireless charger, however, it does not come with a Quick Charge wall charger.

|Samsung Wireless Charging Speed||10W|

Aukey 8,000mAh Wireless Charging Power Bank
This wireless charger is quite unusual because this is a wireless charging power bank, and we still think it counts as a wireless charger. What better reliability to have than a wireless charger that does not require any cables as you charge from it? This Aukey power bank has a rather lower 8,000mAh power capacity that’s able to charge most phones to full power about two times, while also providing many more full charges for your Galaxy Buds case.
The port charging from this Aukey power bank is impressive with the charger featuring Power Delivery, and Quick Charge, both of which can fast charge Samsung phones. The wireless charging at the top of the power bank can output 5W, so it does not feature 10W fast wireless charging, but for a power bank to feature wireless charging in the first place is still pretty useful.
Specs of the Aukey 8,000mAh Wireless Charging Power Bank:
- Power Capacity: 8,000mAh
Quick Charge Port: 5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A (18W)
USB-C Power Delivery Port: 5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A (18W)
Standard USB-A Port: 5V/2.4A (12W)
Wireless Charging: 5W
USB-C Input: 5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A (18W)
- LED Power Indicator: Four Green Power Indicators
- Size: 5.8 x 3 x 0.6 inches
- Weight: 7 Ounces
Samsung Wireless Charger Duo
One of the main problems of wanting to charge your Galaxy Buds and smartphone at the same time is that a single pad charger can only charge one device at a time. You could go for the CHOETECH 5 coil charging pad that we mentioned previously, but your phone would still be laying down and be difficult to use.
This Samsung wireless charger Duo solves that problem by having to completely separate charging pad points. One side has a wireless charging stand, and the other side has a wireless charging pad. The stand part is where you’d place your phone, and you have easier access to use your phone cuz it’s standing up and supported. The other benefit is that the stand has two coils, so you’re able to place your phone horizontally.
The charging pad is where you can place your Samsung Galaxy Buds charging case while your phone charges on the stand. The stand and the pad charger have the same 10W charging speed, so you can even fast charge two Samsung phones at the same time.
The cherry on top is that this Samsung Duo comes with a Quick Charge wall charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable, making sure you have everything you need to use this dual charging pad.
Specs of the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo:
Each Wireless Charger Pad: 10W
- Input: 18W with Quick Charge wall charger
- LED Power Indicator: Red Charging Indicator
- Size: 8.5 x 3.5 x 0.5 inches
- Weight: 10.4 Ounces
Aukey 10,000mAh 10W Wireless Charging Power Bank
This is another wireless charging power bank from Aukey, quite similar to the other one that we mentioned, but with a few upgrades. This charger has a 10,000mAh power capacity, enough to charge most phones to full power about two times, more useful than the 8,000mAh capacity that the other charger has. There are two ports to charge from, with a Power Delivery and Quick Charge port, same as the other Aukey power bank.
The main difference with this one is the wireless charging. The charger has a designated pad to place your devices, and the charging is more powerful. This power bank features a 10W wireless charging speed door for Samsung phones, 7.5W for iPhones and you’re of course able to charge your Galaxy Buds case at their max charging speed.
The power bank can be recharged through one of two input ports, either a USB-C or Micro-USB input port and the charger comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable.
|Quick Charge Port||5V/3A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A (18W)|
|USB-C PD Port||5V/3A | 9V/2A | 12V/1.5A (18W)|
