1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

umm Why do you need a 3rd party wall charger? Is the one provided by Samsung not good enough?

    I see a bunch of 3rd part wall chargers. What gives? Are they faster / better? If so, what are the best?

    Or is it the same as Samsung's provided one?

    You might need one at the office, as well as at home? Indeed there's hundreds of third-party chargers available, I would suggest getting a good quality one, and absolutely avoid cheapo.

    Then buy an extra Samsung charger. Why go for a third party? Are they better?

    Some will be cheaper while still being good quality. Some will have other facilities (e.g. extra ports). Some will simply be comparable, and some will be junk.

    There's no reason not to buy a Samsung one if you prefer that.

    I rarely use the OEM chargers because I prefer ones providing extra ports. I picked up a handful of Duracell (the battery folks) wall chargers. These have 1 port that provides 2.1 amps, and a second port that provides 1 amp. I have one in the kitchen, one in the den, and another in the bedroom. I have a Puregear dual port charger in my car, my truck, and my work vehicle. I have a box full of single port Samsung chargers that I think are generally ok, but when I'm charging, I either need an additional port (Bluetooth headset), or I need the faster charge rate provided by the 2.1 amp port. The sales person from whom I bought my S8+ said this thing charged at 6 amps and recommended I only use the provided Samsung charger. I took it out of the box and found that it was only a 2.0 amp charger and showed her that. She seemed surprised.
