The smartphone industry has been buzzing with fast wireless charging but to our surprise, none of the smartphone manufacturers with devices supporting wireless charging ship a charging dock alongwith the device.

There are two kinds of wireless charging tech, which essentially use the same magnetic induction technology to power the device just at different frequencies.
Qi wireless charging tech is the product of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) and is supported by a majority of top smartphone manufacturers, making it a more popular alternative.
While it has become commonplace for flagship devices to be Qi-enabled, none of the smartphone manufacturers are including the wireless charging docks as part of the package — though a few provide official accessories which are sold separately.
The Kmashi Wireless charger, which costs $10.99 on Amazon, is an economical choice for a Qi wireless charger that also supports QuickCharge 3.0 tech, enabling it to charge devices with the same tech to charge quicker — giving a maximum of 15W output.
Devices like Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, S6, S6 Edge and Note 5 charge faster than S6 or S6 Edge due to the QuickCharge capabilities.
The wireless charger, otherwise, supplies normal current to devices which do not support QuickCharge.
The Kmashi wireless charger comes with a built-in detector that cuts off the power as soon as the device is fully charged or overheating/short-circuit is detected.
The wireless charger can be powered by your device’s power adapter and comes with one year warranty.
