Today I’m going to review the NekTeck fast wireless charging pad. NekTeck is an electronics company that has products from doorbells to jump starters. In between there are also phone accessories. And their NekTeck fast wireless charger is one of their most sold product. It’s a Qi wireless charger that costs around $15 on Amazon. It has also got a rating of 3.6 out of 5 by 169 customers. Which is pretty good. So let’s see if we agree with their rating.

Design & Charging
So out of the box you get the NekTeck fast wireless charging pad, a MicroUSB charging cable and a manual. It shouldn’t be too hard to use it but it’s still there. The charging cable is pretty long, around 6ft/1.8m. And finally the NekTeck wireless charging pad. The charger comes with a pretty cool design. It’s not your average flat pad that just sits on the table. It is kind of a mix between the standard pad and an angled TYLT VU style. Basically the charging surface sits at a small angle, which is surprisingly enough to make let you read your phone even while its laying down on it.
The positive part of this design is that you get the best of both worlds. The angled phone position and the small dimensions which won’t take away space. Because of the size, it is also quite light. To stop it from flipping over, NekTeck has added a rubber grip underneath it to keep it glued to your desk. They have also added a rubber stripe to the surface part. That stops your phone from sliding off the charger. You can use it with both a case or without. There is also a nice circular LED that lights up when your phone is charging. It’s rather subtle so it doesn’t get annoying at nights. Also, because of the size, your phone should start charging the second you place it down. The lack of size removes the possibility to really place it anywhere else other than the sweet spot.
When it comes to charging, the charger performs as well as any other. It comes with the fast wireless charging feature which is compatible with only the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ phones. You can still use it with other Qi supported phones as well though. Just that you’ll get the standard 5W charging power, which takes a lot longer to charge with. With the fast charging feature, your phone should be charged from 0 to 100 in 2 hours. Around the same speed as using cable.
PS! If you want to use the fast charging feature, then you need to use a fast charging AC adapter. You can just use the one that came with your Samsung and plug it into the MicroUSB cable. Or you can also buy a special one off Amazon as well.
I feel like the NekTeck wireless charger is actually pretty underrated. It has amazing quality a works really well. I also really like it’s design. Which is in my opinion perfect replacement of the standard wireless charging pads. I would honestly pick this over any flat one. Perhaps it’s only competitors are the dock chargers which basically keep your phone vertical. But even then, those mostly take up more space than this design.
Either way, if you were looking for a good well priced wireless charger, then the NekTeck is the best choice.
