With the launch of the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung has finally ditched the wall charger. Yes, your new flagship phone does not include other things that we may find essential. It is, however, a step towards eco-consciousness. Just think about how many spare wall chargers you have lying around at home. It appears as though Samsung has finally thought about cutting down on e-waste.
Being their latest generation of flagship phones, you’d expect Samsung to improve on their technology or reuse the previous ones. Surprisingly, Samsung has decided to forego the 45 watt fast charging capability of the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Just like the S21 and S21 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra tops off at 25 watts of fast charging.
Seems like Samsung has given up on the fast charging race and opted for the safer route. Yes, insane charging speeds do sound impressive but they also come with risks like overheating. But maybe the real reason for this move is that Samsung’s 45W charging isn’t really that much faster compared to their 25W charging.
In any case, the lack of a charger poses a problem for their customers. If you didn’t buy the S20, then you’ll probably only have a 15W charger on hand. To maximize the charging capabilities of your phone, getting the best charging solution for any situation is key. Let’s look at the best wall chargers for the Samsung Galaxy S21 series.
No more long waiting times for your phone to fully charge. Caseco’s Pulse PD 20W Wall Charger charges your Samsung Galaxy S21 up to 4 times faster than a conventional charger. It uses Power Delivery technology to charge your device with up to 20 watts of power.

Considering the battery capacities of the Galaxy S21 line, it seems Samsung is pretty confident that these devices can last the day without topping up. However, that has yet to be seen. Still, being portable is a nice feature to have on your wall charger, just in case.
If you’re a neat freak and believe that there’s a place for everything and everything should be in its place, then you probably don’t want to bring your wall charger around. That solution leaves you tied down to a wall plug for the better half of an hour when you ought to be on the go.
If you’re that type, then the Stealth Wireless Charging Power Bank is the best solution for you. It gives you and your Samsung Galaxy S21 total mobility while powering up. No need to bring a charger and a cable. You can wirelessly charge your device wherever you go.

It’s a fact that using mobile data drains your battery faster than using WiFi. What’s even more draining is using your phone for navigation. That’s because it uses mobile data and GPS. Plus, your screen is always on. If you’ll often use the Samsung Galaxy S21 for navigation, then you most definitely need a car charger to keep it running so you don’t lose your way.
The J48 Dual Port Fast Car Charger is the best mobile charging solution to keep in your car. It has a dedicated 30 watt power delivery port for super fast charging and a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 port in case you need to charge another device.

USB type C is shaping up to be the new standard for data transfer and charging. It’s able to handle power delivery of up to 100 watts - more than what a typical laptop needs - all while transferring data as well.
