Hopping off the beaten path for a second, we heard a quick mention during Samsung’s Unpacked event this year (you know, the one with the Note 5 and S6 edge+) about the company pouring more investment into wireless charging. Of course, what would help the cause out is a bump up in charging rates and more device compatibility for the standard. While we’ve solved one red-line device compatibility issue, it would be Samsung to provide a prominent solution to the other with its Fast Charge Qi Wireless Charging Pad.

As in, 30 percent faster than normal Qi chargers “Fast Charge.” And with more heat, comes more responsibility. And fans. The admiration, the adoration- well, actually just one of them (and of the spinny type, too), as hinted in the manual below.
