When Samsung announced the pocket-stretching Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphones last week, they boasted of a nifty new fast-charging capability, allowing device owners to replenish their cell quicker than before.
Now the company has outed a new Fast Charging Wireless Pad designed to take advantage of that tech, aimed at those who not only want a speedy battery top up, but want it without the hassle of cables.
Samsung says the Qi-enabled pad, which is available in black and white, can reduce the total charging time (form 0-100 per cent) of the devices by 50 minutes.
The pad is available to pre-order now from Samsung’s website for $70, but it might be a while before it’s sitting on the desks or coffee tables of Note 5 and S6 Edge+ as it’s already on back order. There’s no sign of it on the UK site yet either.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ arrives in the UK on September 4, while pre-orders opened on August 18.
It still looks a long shot that Brits will ever be able to get their paws on the Galaxy Note 5, which isn’t schedule for a UK release at present.
We’ve gone hands on with both devices and will have full, in-depth reviews in due course.
