Over the past few year, Samsung has launched a series of smartphone, especially for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. They are offered up a premium design and impressive feature set out over the ill-conceived Galaxy S5.
However towards the end of the 2017, something went wrong. Due to the explosion of Galaxy Note 7, the company was forced to recall its entire Note 7 device and try to save their brand image. Samsung’s next big thing is just around the corner. Unlike in previous years, the brand new Galaxy flagship’s job won’t solely be to fight off Apple’s incoming iPhone. Instead, the Galaxy S8 will also have to regain the trust of customers following the massive Galaxy Note 7 battery scandal.
For that, Samsung announced a series of additional battery tests that should prevent accidents in the future. Samsung explained that batteries from Samsung SDI and ATL that were used in the Galaxy Note 7 were responsible for the fires. Distinct faults that were not identified during production resulted in fires and explosions.
Thanks to the Qualcomm processor inside, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature something called Quick Charge technology these phones will still recharge incredible fast. As long as owners have the right charger.
Below we’ve round up a list of certified chargers that will work great with the Galaxy S8 and S8+. These will not only ensure the fastest but the saftest. Keep that in mind.
1: Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the first Galaxy phone to support USB Type-C and we are excited to find out what fast charging technologies that are enabled through this connector.
To be specific, the Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger. This ensures you’re getting the perfect charger made exactly for your smartphone.
2: Aukey Quick Charger 3.0 USB Wall Charger
Samsung’s S8 and S8+ promise to take charging speeds to an even higher level with Quick Charge 4.0 support.
There are no Quick Charge 4.0 chargers currently available yet, but you’ll want to grab one as soon as they are. Until then, you can consider this QC 3.0 charger from Aukey a placeholder.
It will achieve close to the same speeds, and still blow the QC 2.0 charge speeds of the Galaxy S7 out of the water.
3: Anker Quick Dual Wall Charger
It’s common to see ANKER if you are going to buy some smartphone accessories.
The Anker 18w Quick Charge 3.0 certified charger will power up your device up to 75% faster than typical chargers.
These work wonderfully with the Galaxy S8, and will charge all your other micro-USB or Type-C powered devices at regular speeds. It does come with a micro-USB cable, so you’ll need to buy more Type-C cables. We like that it has two fast ports for charging more than one device at a time.
