Spigen makes a fantastic wireless charger and for a lot less. Getting one for my Note 5 soon. Also that Samsung one works with all Qi devices and any with Qaulcomm's Quick Charge enabled device will be able to use the fast charging.

Also I didn't expect that the KL would have the fast charging so I didn't get it. Car companies are too slow on new tech (not necessarily a bad thing).

Is there something I can buy for my Galaxy S6 to get it to fast charge?

The Galaxy S6 does have the capability of wireless fast charging so the Spigen (or any fast wireless charger) would allow you to take advantage of the faster charge.

So what is considered fast charging? My 5S takes about 3 hours to charge fully plugged in to original charger, my S6 after a full day at work is fully charged in the armrest on the QI charger by the time my 40min trip home is over.

Cheers, Dave.

Saw this in an androidcentral review of the Samsung Fast Charge Qi Wireless Charging Pad:

When plugged into the included Adaptive Fast Charging wall plug, the new Wireless Charging Pad will juice up a Galaxy Note 5 or S6 edge+ from dead to full in just over an hour and a half, which is considerably faster than a standard wireless charger. That's about the same pace as plugging the phone into a standard 5V / 2A (non-quick charge) wired charger, and some 40 percent faster than a "standard" Qi wireless charger.

I'm not sure about this on several levels.

The Galaxy S6 as well as the S6 Edge are at WPC 1.1 (http://www.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-s6).

The Wireless Power Consortium specs for 1.1 and 1.2 are as follows >> http://www.wirelesspowerconsortium.c...ification.html:

Version 1.1

Increased design freedom for transmitters. You can now choose between 12 different transmitter specifications.
Increased sensitivity of "Foreign Object Detection". This prevents heating of metal objects in the neighborhood of an active transmitter.
The possibility to power a Qi transmitter with a USB charger.

Version 1.2

Fast charging. The possibility for transmitters to deliver up to 15 Watt power and the option for receivers to obtain up to 15 Watt.
An improved thermal test for transmitters
Improved timing requirements
Changed limits for Foreign Object Detection


Everything I read says that "fast wireless charging" at this date is limited to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Note 5. I really was looking forward to this fast wireless charging but looks like I'll have to wait until I do the Verizon "Edge Up" to the Galaxy S7 next February; that is if the S7 does fast wireless charging (WPC 1.2).

Do you have a link to the Spigen wireless charger that does fast charging (WPC 1.2)? The only thing I can find is the F300W Wireless Charging Pad (http://www.spigen.com/collections/ch...s-charging-pad) and it doesn't say anything about fast charging.

I think i was wrong about the Spigen, it seems like it isn't a fast charger. Sorry about that.

If this helps the "fast charge" from Samsung is based off of the Qualcomm Quick Charge. What is essentially does is supplies power more efficiently to the phone allowing it to store the charge faster.

That article is about wired charging. My Galaxy S6 has that built in.

Help for a non-tech man please.

I am 70 and have just got a new Cherokee which has the mobile charger in the armrest - but I've no idea how to use it.
I have a Windows Lumia phone. Can someone please explain it to me in an easy to understand way.
Thanks

It's a wireless charging feature for compatible phones. If your phone is compatible, you place the phone in the charger cradle and the phone's battery will be charged.

The Cherokee owner's manual explains how to use it.

Your phone needs to be compatible with the Qi wireless charging standard, or a plate added that enables it to be charged wirelessly via this standard. Don't know about Nokia phones so can't help there. Good luck.
