So now that i've got my (secondhand) s9+ I need a speaker to crack out the tunes, but it has to be something that will charge at the same time! (gotta use as little energy as possible remember!!)
I've seen a few that have wireless charging & connect via bluetooth, but very few with dock connectors.
Anyone got one, or can give me pointers as to where I should be looking please?
Your help as ever.. is appreciated!
(i've sold my Bose dock to a mate & made a small profit.. so carbon footprint is secure)

Problem with usb C on Samsung's, is that if using a dock, almost all docks will just have either usb C audio, or 3.5mm, not both, so in order to cut costs, they won't have fast charge over the usb-c just standard charge, even if going via Bluetooth, most usb-c charging capable ones will be standard charging.
Myself I'd go for one with best quality speakers and a fast QI pad, better future proofing too.

And trying to find a fast charger is also proving difficult. The bricks I have say fast charging but don't do it. Could it be the cable or is it a fake brick?

There can be some issues with fast charging samsungs since they changed something after note7, post note7 chargers are black and are slightly different from Qualcomm quick charge specced ones... However.
Anker ones I've used with note9 and S9 fine, and Sony ones work too, possibly more but I've not checked others.
Also, yes it could also be the cable,
These Are genuine
As for speakers, I myself am tempted by this.
Looks pretty modern and is getting some good reviews off buyers

And as for the speaker, that's the one I was looking at, it's the only one that looked half decent!
