    Well, here you can buy the OEM adapter and cable that comes with the S7 and S7 Edge:

    kylecummins... The pad that you link to, is it a 10watt pad that will give your fast charging.?? Doubtful. Nowhere in that description does it say it is 10watt. Fast charge pads are routinely labeled on the puck it with the words FAST CHARGE. My guess is it is a 5watt pad and that is why so inexpensive. Anyway, for a fast charge capable 10w pad, you need to buy a Qualcomm Certified 18W Wall Charger or you will not be fast charge capable. Do know that you probably cannot use the adapter that came with your phone with the fast charge capable pad. Many are reporting on the internet that their 10w fast charge pad would not give them fast charge if they used the adapter that came with the phone.

    I have a NON fast charge charging pad, i'm ok with that.. I just want to get the appropriate samsung cord for that pad.

    Or could I use any standard cell phone cord/block? I have 1 from sony Z3, and LG G4.

    I hear ya... If you are not concerned about fast charging, you can use pretty much any microUSB cable then.

    I mentioned using most any microUSB cable but never said use any adapter. I would get a known to be ok with the S7 adapter and then any microUSB cable to use with it. That's if you don't care about fat charging.

    Ok, just received the cables mentioned above. Terrific, 20AWG micro usb cable (5 in the pack) . Exceptional quality. Connector barbs on the phone connection end of the cable work well and no catching in the S7 receptacle.
    This cable will hold up versus lots of the poor cables out there that do not. It is a 20AWG cable so will allow fast charging with the proper, Qualcomm Certified 18W car or wall adapter.
