When it comes time to purchase a new smartphone, we tend to all think of the same must-have accessories: a protective (or decorative) case and a screen protector immediately come to mind. But what about charging accessories? You don’t have to just use the cable and wall charger that came in the box with your phone. 

Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger ways to charge your phone

Car Charger

If I could only have one extra type of charger, it would absolutely be my car charger. Traveling? You’re covered. Long day of running errands? Covered. Power out? Escape to the car where the AC and power are always on. The Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger goes from empty to 50 percent in 30 minutes. It also has dual ports for charging multiple devices.

Portable Battery Pack

Not just for trips and travel, portable battery packs are great for times the outlet is just too far from reach or for people like me, who hate feeling tethered to the wall. When I started traveling, often I realized I needed a portable charger but I didn’t realize how much I would use them at home too. Even my kid prefers using the portable charger. Samsung has a portable battery pack that lets you recharge your device quickly, so you can talk, text and surf longer when you’re out and about – or at home. My favorite part is that it features pass-through charging that allows you to charge your device while charging the battery pack too.

Charging Pad

Charging pads have become increasingly popular over the last few years as we move more toward a wireless world. They eliminate cables and wires, allowing you to charge compatible Galaxy devices in what I like to call a drive by drop maneuver. It also the perfect accessory for creating a family technology hub.

Did you know that Samsung fast chargers rapidly charge your devices up to 1.4x faster for select models? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve forgotten to plug in my phone before going to bed for the night. Or the number of times I’ve fallen asleep with my phone next to me. Samsung fast chargers allow you to charge your phone much quicker than a traditional charger, even while you’re using the phone, so you can get going in less time.

Right now you can save up to 20% on Samsung charging devices at Best Buy through Nov 4th.

    A car charger and a portable charger are MUST haves for me. I would be lost without both of those things.
