Galaxy S8 Wireless charger recommendations

SimplyChunk

Hi Folks,

 

Just got a Galaxy S8  (coming from a Google Pixel) and want to take advantage of wireless charging.  I've been looking at a couple on Amazon  (I'm looking for one that 'Stands' the phone up while on charge)  But they nearly all have a horror story lurking in the reviews.  The setup will be the phone on the wireless charger and then the wireless charger (hopefully) plugged in to my USB charging station.  I'll be unplugging the charger and plugging it back in as and when the phone needs juice.  Does anyone have an upright wireless charger they could recommend? 

 

Edit:

 

I'll only be using the wireless charger next to my PC.  I don't tend to charge my phones over night

 With all the Trolls, Try Hards, Noobs and Weirdos around here you'd think i'd find SOMEWHERE to fit in!

I'm almost 100% positive this is the one I've bene using for my s8+ since December 2017

Only reason I'm not 100% sure is because of brand, but everything else looks exactly right. The phone can be charged standing upright or in portrait mode and pair seasilly every time.

There will always be a horror story hidden somewhere deep in the reviews, no matter what product you're looking at

75% of what I say is sarcastic

 

So is the rest probably

Ok.  Thank you.  That looks very similar to the one I was already looking at

Yes.  I suppose there would be.  Thanks

If it's any comfort, I've used this since the day I got it and have had no issues what-so-ever. I DID have to remove a adhesive metal plate on the back of my phone that was for a car stand before I used the charger (because I'm aware of how that might cause problems) but other than that it was as easy as plug into wall and then enjoy the convenience.
