Supported by advanced technologies, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been allowed to be charged without wires, and then the following Samsung phones continued the tradition. Unsurprisingly, Galaxy S8 and S8 plus can be placed on a wireless charging pad to get powered up. The Wireless Charging Pad uses Qi Inductive Charging Technology, a global standard for wireless charging that eliminates the need to attach a charging cable every time you want to charge your device. In most circumstances, wireless charging works without removing the device’s case or over.
How to wireless charging Galaxy S8 or S8 plus?
1. Plug the wireless charging pad’s wall charger into a wall outlet.
2. Plug another end of the charger into the back of the charging pad base. The indicator light on the front of the charging pad base will flash blue, green, and cyan when you first plug it in.
3. Place your Galaxy S8 or S8 plus on the charging pad with the screen facing up. In most cases, it’s no need to remove the cases or covers on your S8 or S8 plus.
4. The charging pad will emit a steady blue light when your device is charging. It will emit a steady cyan light when charging at low power (less than 5 V/2 A). If the charging pad emits a slowly flashing blue light, you should reposition your device at the center of the charging pad.
5. The charging pad will emit a steady green light when your device is fully charged.
