    Note you will need a separate usb c to usb c cable if you recently got the S20fe.

      S20 FE already comes with fast charge charger and cable. This wall charger is just if you want even faster charge lol

    Will this charge a macbook?

      It will. But very very slow. For MacBook you definitely need 60Wplus

        MacBook airs only come with 30W. 25 will charge not too slowly.

      Retailers love this. Remember when printers stopped coming with cables, and you’d have to pay through the nose for a shitty USB-B cable?

      •  

        I'm not really too bummed about it. We've all had phones for years and don't need new cables and chargers every time. It's only a problem when standards change… Just more that I wasnt aware things had changed such that you need to also think about this when buying a new one these days

    This or pay $40 more for 45W charger?

    • +5 votes

      Depends on your requirements

    •  

      I read somewhere 45w charger would charge phone (S21 ultra 0% to 100%) 5min faster.

      • +9 votes

        S21s can only accept up to 25w, so there would be no reason to buy a 45w charger, and it wouldn't (couldn't) charge the phone any faster anyway.

          Thanks that settles it!

        I think the ultra accepts max 25W.

        A few older Samsung's took 45W but they have gone backward on that.

      •  

        You're probably thinking about the s20ultra and note 10 plus. Since those are like the last phones that currently support it on samsungs lineup.

        But yes, I recall coming across something similar. Basically not worth buying a 45w charger if you only plan on using it for your phone, since the 25w charger that is included is about as good as it gets

        •  

          45W could be useful if your have a small laptop and only want to carry one charger and cable around.

          •  

            @sickburn: That's what I meant when I said:

            Basically not worth buying a 45w charger if you only plan on using it for your phone

            Ofc its up to you to decide since a laptop isn't the only thing that uses 45w

          •  

            @sickburn: what about future proofing

            if samsung release a future s22 etc with 45W fast charging support?

      •  

        @virtualds

        True, but thats hardly the reason you want a super fast charge.
        I had a 40w with my huawei and the most important thing was 10-20% to 70%ish charge.

        Even the 25w samsung was a huge drop for that. So for a phone with a large battery like s21 ultra, i'd definitely consider it and want it supported.

    Alternatively getting 2 x 20w PD charger (choetech) for $25 in Amazon AU isn’t bad either

    •  

      These were $20 for the past week or so, had a 20% off coupon you could apply.

    •  

      It is unclear whether Samsung requires PPS charging for S21 phones to achieve highest far charging.
      Most of the PD chargers only support PDO.

  •  

    Is this suitable for a S10 please?

    The S10e I have came with a fast charger but unsure if this is the same. I just want a spare.

    • +1 vote

      Yes, but you will only be getting 15W.

      •  

        Thanks, but not that I understand this W.
        The charger I have for the S10e, EP-TA200 "adjustable fast charging" doesn't specify W. Does this mean having a (possible) high W charger won't be a problem?

        Dang, just went to order but it appears sold out (get stock alert). Then selected white (no stock available). That was quick!

          Your phone and the charger does some negotiation before deciding which voltage and current setting to use when charging. Furthermore, it changes depending on the battery level. Also, it doesn't start at the highest charging setting when you first plug in. It takes a few seconds for the phone and the charger to ramp up the voltage (if applicable). You cannot charge at 15W or 25W when your battery is at 99% as that will fry the battery.

          EP-TA200 is an oldish charger. It supports Samsung QuickCharge and is rated 15W max. S10e does support Qualcomm QC2/QC3 and USB-PD/PDO. However, it doesn't support the newer USB-PD/PPS. There is no real advantage of you getting this charger, unless you intend to purchase a S21 or S20 Ultra or S20 Notes soon.

    Will this charge an s21 at 25w with the usb c to c cable that came in the box?

      Does the s21 support 25 watt charging with USB C?

          I'm getting a "no stock available" when I selected the white.
          Did a search and the white EP-TA800XWEGAU comes up as $50!

            @JediJan: White is in stock.
            This is not an amazing deal but it is the cheapest available by a small margin. It is about 25 bucks on ebay and often get $5 off codes

    Guys… I thought I would take step back and reflect…. I charge my phone at my work desk and… I am not in a hurry. Charging this fast would hurt my battery performance in the long run?

    •  

      There's been lots of discussion around this. The consensus seems to be that fast charging will have a negligible effect on battery health. Number of charge cycles send to be a bigger factor, and keeping the phone about 90% and below 10% for long periods.

      Having said all that, I still leave fast charging turned off unless I really need it.

        The consensus seems to be that fast charging will have a negligible effect on battery health.

        Based on my experience, this is broadly false. I have a work phone and a personal phone that are exactly the same model, bought only around a month apart.

        For my personal phone, since I generally use it during the evenings and rarely during the day, I'll slow charge it overnight. For my work phone, I will generally fast charge it during the day when the battery is low.

        The work phone has a clearly worse battery. To test, when I got new phones recently, I charged up both old phones for the last time and let them just drain their battery at the same time. After 24 hours of idle, the work phone was on around 15% and the personal phone was around 40%.

        FWIW, this is completely unscientific and I'm sure things like my usage patterns will play a part as well. It's also arguable whether we generally keep phones for long enough that this is a problem. It depends on the use case, but I rarely find myself away from a power source for more than a few hours at a time.

          Thanks.

          The 'consensus' it has no effect probably comes from the same kind of people who tell you not to warm up your car.

          Not everyone disposes of things when the manufacturer wants you to.

            @Superannuation: Strange statement. If you are sceptical, go and do the reading and research yourself rather than making sly comments.

          Yeah you probably can't base too much on a sample space of 2 phones. Interesting none the less.

        • +3 votes

          The example there is not really comparing Apple to Apple. Are the apps exactly the same? Same usage pattern? Also, were the work phones charged using original charger and original cable all the time (or el cheapo charger and/or el cheapo cable)?

          Fast charging isn't something new. It's been used in laptops for years. Furthermore, fast charging on a phone does not mean it constantly charges at fast charging rate. Also, some phones now have smarts to avoid charging to 100% at night time right away. Instead, they will charge towards 100% early in the morning (based on your usage pattern). However, during day time, that feature generally doesn't kick in.

          Phone temperature (battery temperature), charging cycles and charging habit have higher impact on battery life. Also, while you could use el cheapo charger and cable, you are feeding voltage and current with higher ripple / noise.

          When you look at it under an USB power meter, you will see the phone and the charger don't go straight into fast charging mode. There is a bit of negotiation phase before then. If the phone is close to fully charge, it won't enter fast charging mode.

          The reality is that these fast chargers are not really that fast, unless you charge your phones from below 30% battery level a lot. Assuming the phone is well designed (so the battery doesn't heat up too much when using fast charging and/or has thermal protection during fast charging), it should be fine. Also, avoid using el cheapo chargers / cables.

        •  

          does creating abn cost anything or has tax issue?

          this might not be that accessible for most people here.

          •  

            @pinkybrain: No doesn't cost anything to get an ABN under your own name, tax just goes through your personal income tax as a sole trader.

            They never claimed it was accessible to most people, just if you have access you can grab it from there. There's a reason JB commercial & good guys commercial stuff don't get posted as deals.
