[Galaxy S6/S6 EDGE] Is device compatible with 3rd party wireless chargers?

Last Update date : Sep 21. 2020


The Galaxy S6 device has a built-in wireless charging coil.


You can charge the battery using a wireless charging pad.


The built-in charging coil inside the wireless charging pad generates an

electromagnetic field. This electromagnetic field sends energy via inductive

coupling to the induction coil inside the device.


And then, the battery of the device is charged using this transferred energy.


      The Charging pad for the Galaxy S6 series is sold separately and you can purchase it through

      Samsung Online Store or Samsung Offline  Authorized Shop.


       However, please note that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge support both

       WPC and PMA certified wireless charging technology.


         WPC = Wireless Power consortium – “QI” technology

         PMA = Power Matters Alliance – “POWERMAT” technology

       The devices should work with any wireless pad available in the market that

        supports WPC and PMA standards.


       However please read fully the instructions for use for any Wireless charger used

       for correct operation.
