    Hi,
    I have a samsung S5 Active and can anyone please let me kn when there's a wireless charger for it, or if there's already one?
    The part where you plug the usb into phone to charge, is messed up on my phone and I can't charge it.
    So needing wireless, rather than fixing it.
    Thank you:

    Try Amazon, you're looking for a Qi compatible wireless/induction charger for Samsung phones, I think.

    Try the keywords "Qi charger".

    IMO "induction" is actually the correct name for it, because that's how it works, but I think "wireless" is preferred by the marketing people. As "induction" sounds too much like a cooking method, i.e. induction cooking, and "wireless" brings to mind, communications by radio.

    Yeap make sure you search with the keyword Qi. There're other wireless charging standards nowadays ( like PMA by Duracell ) is getting popular, make sure you get the Qi one coz that's the only one that's compatible with your phone.
