how-to-wirelessly-charge-galaxy-s8-s8-plus

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.

Samsung Wireless Charger—How Does It Work

  1. I have a question more than a comment. I pre-ordered the S8+ and was wondering which Samsung Wireless charger I should purchase. I was looking at the Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand and then noticed that the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible and became confused as to what the difference is. Is it that the latter can be used as a pad? I really want to get the best wireless charger for my new phone and new ruin the battery as this will be my first phone without a removable battery. THANKS!

  2. The wireless charger for my Samsung Edge 6+ is not compatible with my new Samsung 8+. The duck bill insert on the Samsung 8 is larger than the Samsung 6. This is annoying because it means spending additional money on a Samsung wireless charger. Any comments?

  3. My Galaxy S8+ will not charge wireless with my Samsung wireless charger which I just bought and took out of the box.
    Is there a setting that must be turned on? Or something else that needs to be done?
