What you need to know about Samsung Galaxy S22 charging

When it comes to the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung now has two tiers of fast charging. The standard Galaxy S22 maxes out at 25W wired at 15W wireless. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Ultra support up to 45W wired and the same 15W wireless capabilities.

To max out the phones’ charging potential, Samsung states you’ll want to use its first-party power adapters. However, Samsung’s charging technology is based on the USB Implementers Forum’s USB Power Delivery specification. The USB PD PPS protocol to be exact, an increasingly popular technology across devices and third-party charging products. So long as you pick a charger with this protocol and that can provide enough power, you will be covered.

Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series uses the USB Power Delivery PPS standard for wired and Qi for wireless power.

When it comes to wireless power, Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series all use the popular third-party Qi specification. This makes them compatible with a wide range of first- and third-party wireless charging products.

With all that in mind, here are the products that qualify as the best Samsung Galaxy S22 chargers money can buy.

Samsung recommends its Super Fast Charging 2.0 45W travel adapter to quickly charge the Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Ultra, and it’s hard to argue with the official line here. With 45W of power and USB Power Delivery PPS onboard, this phone will charge all recent Galaxy flagship smartphones at full speed without issue.

Samsung’s charger isn’t a super cheap option, but it’s become increasingly competitive with third-party options in recent months. It’s now regularly discounted below $40, often closer to $30, which is a deal you’ll struggle to beat.

If you own the regular Galaxy S22, Samsung’s official 25W adapter retails for a cheaper $20 and will have you perfectly well covered. That said, the 45W model is a solid investment to charge tablets and smaller laptops too.

Anker’s PowerPort lineup offers something for just about everyone, and the PowerPort III 25W is an excellent pick for the best Samsung Galaxy S22 charger that you can buy right now. With 25W of power onboard, it’s perfect for the smaller Galaxy S22 and last year’s entire Galaxy S21 series, although you’ll want a more powerful charger for the S22 Plus and Ultra. Sadly, this more powerful model no longer appears to be available in the US.

The plug supports USB Power Delivery PPS, Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4+, and a whole list of legacy standards like Apple 2.4A and Quick Charge 3.0. Anker’s compact design means that you can take this wall charger with you on the go, and interchangeable plugs make it a great pick for international travel. At just $20/£20/€20, the Anker PowerPort III 25W won’t break the bank, and at just 63 grams, you can carry it just about anywhere you need power.

Anker Nano II 30W, 45W, and 65W

Anker earns a second entry into your recommendations with its Nano II adapter, aka the Anker 711, which perfectly meets the required USB PD PPS standard for the Galaxy S22 series. Better still, it comes in a range of power options to perfectly suit your latest purchase. The 30W model has the Galaxy S22 well covered while the 45W version is ideal for the Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Ultra. Or even grab the 65W SKU if you fancy charging your laptop from the same plug too.

Priced at $30 for the 30W model and $40 for the 45W option, Anker’s products are slightly more expensive than Samsung’s accessories. However, they’re more compact than Samsung’s chargers, making them ideal travel companions.

The Elecjet 45W USB-C Super Fast Charger is also worth considering if you don’t fancy going down the first-party route. The new model looks a bit different from the picture above, but the specs are just as good as ever. With USB PD PPS and a selection of legacy standards onboard, this plug has you well covered for a huge selection of gadgets, in addition to the Galaxy S22 series. It’s also fairly priced with a tag set at around $30.

Anker’s PowerPort III 65W two-port model, aka the Anker 726, is more than you’ll need to charge any Galaxy S22 on its own, but it’s always good to be able to charge multiple gadgets at once. With two USB-C ports boasting PPS capabilities and room to supply up to 65W for laptops or 45W and 20W over two ports at once, it’s a solid multi-charging option for the S22 Plus, S22 Ultra, and more.

Elecjet X21 GaN Pro Fast Charger

Elecjet X21 Pro review

Robert Triggs / Android Authority

With 65W of power split across up to three ports, plus USB PD PPS and a host of other legacy protocols, the Elecjet X21 GaN Pro Fast Charger is a one-stop shop for smartphones, laptops, and other gadgets. Although you do sacrifice peak speed when charging multiple devices. It’s priced at $37.99, making it a very affordable option for high-power, fast charging that won’t set you back much more than a standard charger. However, it’s not as compact as some of the other options on our list.

Best wireless chargers for the Samsung Galaxy S22

Samsung 15W wireless charger stand

With 15W of power onboard, enough for any of the latest Galaxy smartphones, the Samsung Wireless Charger Stand is the ideal official product. It also features a built-in cooling fan and LED charging indicator, but these features come at a premium price — now discounted to $47/£47/€50 from $80. To lessen the blow, the package comes with Samsung’s Super Fast Charge 25W wall charger that will fast-charge phones via a wired connection as well.

In addition to wirelessly powering the latest Galaxy S22 series, Samsung’s stand also delivers up to 15W of output to the Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy S21 family. However, the output tops out at 12W for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, and other Qi-compatible smartphones may be slower.

Samsung Wireless Charger Fast Charge Pad Duo (2021)

If you’re big into Samsung’s ecosystem, then the Samsung Wireless Charger Fast Charge Pad Duo should be on your radar. It only offers 9W charging rather than the peak 15W power obtainable with the Galaxy S22 series. What you’re buying is a single pad designed to wirelessly charge your smartphone or tablet and smartwatch together.

In addition, Samsung’s dual-charging pad includes a wired plug and charging status LEDs. Again, Samsung’s first-party products are a little expensive at $59, but you can usually find the Pad Duo with a few dollars off.

Sporting 15W of wireless power for Samsung Galaxy and other Qi-compatible devices, this will fast-charge as quickly as Samsung’s first-party accessories. Better yet, it costs $40/£30/€40 and occasionally sees discounts below that price too.
