Samsung’s wireless charger for the Galaxy S6 visits the FCC

The fact that the Galaxy S6 (and the Galaxy S6 Edge) will come with wireless charging built-in is pretty much a given at this point. For those that wanted more proof, the FCC has come to the rescue. The communications regulator has approved a wireless charger from Samsung, the same one that we mentioned in our exclusive report about the accessories the Galaxy S6 will come with.

The model number of the charger is EP-PG920I, and as you can see from the image below, it is completely round. It’s possible the same wireless charger will also support Samsung’s upcoming round smartwatch (codenamed Orbis), which will also come with wireless charging technology (though the smaller form factor of the watch might need a different charging pad).

The Galaxy S6 and its curved sibling will be officially announced on March 1, and this wireless charger should get a mention during the presentation.

Awesome that they are basically going to be the first to offer an extremely thin new Polymer Lithium Ion battery. These are normally much more expensive than plain liquid electrolyte filled batteries. Polymer batteries are capable of being almost paper thin with solid filled electrolytes in a non fixed enclosure. Mainly because they do not need the thick plastic and metal membrane in cheaper non-polymer batteries.

Also…. Polymer type batteries (like Samsung latest car battery called LithiumAir) are ultra high density to begin with. Meaning like RV or Marine batteries they can last much longer, while being smaller, thinner and most of all safer. When housed in such a well as to not be prone to damage. In a sealed case….. charged either via USB or wirelessly with coils built in to phone.

But…. I just found out from your link that this charging pad will not include a built in battery for completely doing away with needing a removable battery. With the coils built in to the phone you’ll be able to utilize multiple styles/standards of charging pads. Including Wireless Charging Pads with built in spare battery power to charge on the go. Like this one for $49 with 5000mAh battery in it. But….. Samsung is said to be coming out with their own accessory like this as well. Which would make S6 on par with Gear S w/ charger w/ built in battery!

btw…. this thinner sealed internal Polymer Battery alone, will have it lasting longer, charging faster, running cooler and that all done even on the Go! This is a tremendous advantage over even carrying around a spare battery for swapping in and out. When you can charge the battery fast, even when not near a wall socket, like iPhone 6/6+ users are caught doing on a daily basis!!! THUS…. NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT BATTERY….. LIFE. When you consider the fact that 14nm will require less more with greater efficiency and second… the battery itself is new High Density Materials for longer life too. Then to top that off, you got the ability to add a combo spare battery, wireless charger too!!! EAT S**T and DIE APPLE RETARDED iTROLLS!!! :D

Sorry, I meant “based”.

Obviously I would see the advantage if it was a wireless charger, otherwise it seems completely useless… (My comments are bases on the picture above).

A power cable connected to a charger or directely to the phone…Where is supposed to be the advantage?

The advantage is to walk in and drop your phone on it, taking less than half a second. Of course for this convenience you waste more electricity.

As for the assumption that since this charger hit the FCC that means that the phone will have built in charging is a bit presumptuous. This is not the first charger to hit the FCC and most Samsusng phones support wireless charging but the US versions rarely come with the needed receiver because to the carriers its just one more thing to cost them money and then make them support.

But the pictures of the batteries are not normal batteries obviously. They already have the charging circuits that attach to the back with them. This most obviously means that the Wireless Charging Coils are built into the sealed non removable back cover! …….and if, this is true it gives more than enough good reason to assume every S6 will come with Wireless charging feature built in out the door. Put Samsung’s own statement in that mix (“Wireless Charging is Closer than YOU THINK”) and you are guaranteed to be seeing Wireless charging!

Keep in mind too…. that with that built in Wireless charging feature, you can automatically opt to buy a spare battery built into a wireless charger like this 5000mAh unit for even charging on the go! ….and Samsung will be coming out with their own accessory charging like this. If it’s also a High Density Polymer based based in that charging pad/spare battery, it can be thinner, smaller and longer lasting!!!
