Looking for the best wireless charging options for your Galaxy S5? We can help.
When it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S5, wireless charging is where it's at. There are a few reasons for that. The first is convenience. Because of its IP67 rating for water resistance, the Galaxy S5 has a flap covering the microUSB port. You have to remove that flap any time you want to charge your phone. The second reason also is for convenience. It's simply easier to plop your Galaxy S5 down on a Qi-compatible charging pad.
There is a trade-off, of course. One is that your phone won't charge quite as quickly. The other is that the Qi-enabled wireless backs for the Galaxy S5 make the phone a little thicker.
