The Samsung Galaxy S21 brings a host of new specs that make it worth upgrading this year, with the previous S20 not precisely delivering what consumers were looking for. The new S21 now has a 120hz refresh rate screen, better AI image processing with better zoom, much larger batteries, and more RAM.
Along with the higher tier specs, the S21 brings new accessories that are releasing right beside it, with new cases that feature the S Pen, the first time the Galaxy S series is compatible with the S Pen. Also with the release of the S21, we’re getting the new Galaxy Bud Pro that offers an even better listening experience, and there are also new wireless chargers.
The new Samsung wireless chargers are good, but in comparison to other wireless chargers on the market, the new ones from Samsung seem to be lacking. This is mainly due to their price point, and there are many 10W fast wireless chargers that you could use to charge your Samsung Galaxy S21 faster. That’s why in this guide, we’re covering the wireless chargers that you should use for your Galaxy S21 Ultra, with the ones in the direction offering a simple but powerful wireless charging solution.
Spigen 10W Fast Wireless Charging Mini Pad
This Spigen wireless charging pad is possibly the most uncomplicated charging pad that you buy. That’s because it’s very small with a diameter of only 2.7 inches, so you can rest assured that the charger won’t be taking up any space no matter where you place it. Also, the charger only has a single coil, so you do have to make sure that you’re putting your S21 in the center for charging.
The Spigen charging pad may be small, but it is still powerful with 10W fast wireless charging for the Samsung smartphones. This pad also features 7.5W fast charging for Qi charging iPhones. One of the best parts is included in the box along with the pad is a USB-C to USB-A cable that can be used to power the Spigen charging pad. Thankfully, this Spigen charger does not use a Micro-USB input port, as the Micro-USB port outdated.

The stand does have rubber padding where you place your phone to make sure that there are no scuffs, and there is rubber padding underneath to make sure that the charger itself does not move around.
