With no need to plug in a compatible cord, a wireless charger saves time in plugging and avoids the broken cable troubles. However, as every coin has two sides, a normal wireless charger always costs you more time in charging. As the unveiled Galaxy S9 announced its supports for both wireless and wired charging, what will you prefer? Let’s first get some comparisons.

Wired Charging

The new S9 support Samsung’s Fast Adaptive Charge and come with a fast charger in the box. Here is a picture for the detailed information about wired charging. As it is shown on the picture, it takes 107 minutes to charge a Galaxy S9. But how long can it be used? According to the data, Galaxy S9 lasts for 7h and 23 minutes after a full charge, which seems satisfying. In comparison, Galaxy S9+ goes with a higher 3500 mAh battery capacity; its charging time is lower than Galaxy S9 for two minutes yet lasts even longer than S9 at 8h and 5 minutes.

Wireless Charging

As for wireless charging, Tech Guy once used the convertible fast charging stand from Samsung and found that it took around 2 hours and a half to wirelessly charge Galaxy S9.

Actually,compared with wired charge, wireless charger appears less effective, which means that you have to spend more time on charging. It is quiet annoying when you are in a hurry for a phone call yet the battery cannot work in just a few minutes. Based upon this, fast wireless charging appears valuable. Before you choose one for your daily use, you need to know something about fast charging with your Samsung Galaxy S9. For example, what is fast charging, how it works and what kind of factors might affect fast charging.

You may not realize the convenience of fast charging until one day you have to go out in 10 minutes and the battery of your phone is less than 20%. Once the full charge can be finished in 10 minutes, you will be able to put aside the power bank and go out without hesitation. Here some recommendations for Galaxy S9 wireless charging.
