Samsung Wireless Charger Duo or Wireless Charging Pad?

Wireless charging is one of the most convenient types of charging electronics that you can use and actually replace a wall charger with, as you can just set your phone down, rather than using a cable. Of course, wireless charging may not be faster than wired charging, especially with the few fast charging technologies that many phones are using. That said, there have been a few improvements with wireless charging such as fast wireless charging for certain smartphones and dual wireless chargers.

In this case, we’re going to be comparing a Samsung Wireless Charger Duo that actually features two charging coils, so you can charge two devices wirelessly at the same time. Or if you should go for the Samsung’s wireless charging pad.

Samsung Wireless Charger Duo

Of course, the Samsung Wireless charger Duo is a great choice as you’re able to charge two devices at once. Other wireless chargers on the market just use a single coil, or there are ones that use multiples coils but are only able to charge a single device at a time. With the ability to charge two wireless charging smartphones at once, it’s basically like having a 2-port wall charger but in the form of a wireless charger.

The other great benefit of this charger is that it makes use of two form factors. One part of the wireless charger is a pad, and that would be the most common type of charger form factor. The other part is a stand, and you would think that having a two stand set-up would be ideal, but it’s not, as you’re able to also charge newer Samsung Gear watches with the wireless charging pad.

So really, the best benefit of getting the Wireless Charger Duo is that you’re able to charge two Qi-compatible smartphones at once. Just a reminder, you can charge any Qi-compatible smartphone with the Charger Duo, and that’s definitely something that we feel that we need to clarify as it’s a product from Samsung and so a lot of people feel that it’s only for Samsung smartphones. You can use this charger to charge other Android Qi smartphones and also Qi-wireless charging iPhones, too. The fast charging in this case though is only compatible with Samsung smartphones.

Specs of the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo:

  • Output:

Each Wireless Charger Spot: 10W for Qi-compatible Samsung smartphones

5W for Non-Samsung Qi-compatible smartphones

  • 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

Samsung Wireless Charging Pad

Then there’s the Wireless charging pad, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. You can only charge a single device with this charger, rather than two. Also, it only has a pad form factor and cannot be turned into a stand, which can be a deal breaker to some as it can be more difficult to use your smartphone while you’re charging it.

However,.the good news is that it still features fast wireless charging for Samsung Qi-compatible smartphones, and it’s still compatible with any and all Qi-compatible phones, too. The charger is also quite small with it only having a 4-inch width and the charger is also quite slim. It’s simple to place this where you want as it doesn’t take much space at all.

So it’s really a matter of importance if wirelessly charging two devices at once or if charging a single device is just fine. We definitely recommend getting the wireless charger Duo if you have family or friends that own Qi-compatible smartphones, as you can your phone and they can charge their phone at the same time.
