There are little things in life that don't seem like a huge deal at the moment, but end causing frustration and annoyance over time. Case in point: Hooking up your phone charger every night.
You have to get your phone, find the little cord (which is probably hidden behind your bedside table), finagle the tiny plug into your phone socket and then find a place to set the whole thing. It's a process, and it's one you really don't need to struggle with every night.
A better option: Get a wireless phone charger. With a wireless phone charger, you simply set your phone on top of the charger and go about your life. That's really it. Well, just for today, Amazon has slashed the price up to 60 percent off the top-rated Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charger Pad.
This charger is not messing around. It can fire up your gear up to 1.4 times faster than your standard wireless charging pads, reducing your time from 0 to 100 percent by up to 50 minutes.
The Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charger Pad can handle just about any device, including your phone, tablet, smart watch and even wireless Galaxy earbuds. It works with Qi compatible smartphones, including the Galaxy Note10, Note10+, S10, Note9, Apple iPhone8, iPhone X and iPhone 11.
The charger is also USB-C compatible, so it can plug into your computer or your wall. It even has a built-in cooling fan to let it stay on the job without overheating.
This wireless charger also has an army of fans — and more than 15,000 perfect Amazon reviews. "This Samsung charging pad is AMAZING!" a happy customer wrote. "It is so easy to use and it charges BOTH my s21 ultra and my galaxy active watch without any problems. I love that it also charges with a fast charging adapter so everything gets charged quickly. ... I also love that it is not bulky and fits perfectly right on my nightstand."
"Its pretty much a premium wireless charger. Well made, solid build, soft grip like surface to hold your phone and on the bottom to keep it in place," a fellow fan said. "It's heavy enough to not move easily. And the LED indicator does a good job showing you when its done."
This charger is only on mega-sale for today — act fast to make your phone charging experience effortless in the future!
