I've just ordered 2 new S21's and was wondering which is the best charger to use that won't void the warranty?
Ideally looking for the best UK plug in and wireless chargers with the quickest charge time.
Cheers in advance 👍

I'm more concerned with the warranty situation and I won't have a charging brick when I sell my old S9's.
I was also interested in which wireless charge options were best as there was very little info available at Samsung.com/uk or I couldn't find it 🤔

The recommended one is here.
Or wireless... but bear in mind this is 9W... so three times slower. My personal choice would be wired... I have tried wireless chargers and they are a bit hit and miss. Sometimes leave phone on pad slightly misaligned and wake up in the morning to find it has only half charged or worse still not charged at all. I am not a big fan of wireless just now, but others do prefer this method.
However, personally I am using my previous S10+ charger which charges at fast charge rates of 1.67*9V = 15W. This will take about an extra 40 minutes on full charge from ~1hr30 to ~2hr 10, by the phone estimates when plugging in.
If the 40 minutes is not much of a problem once a day then you can continue to use your old charger... there is not a warranty risk and you can choose to use whichever charger you like for your phone, so long as it has a USB-C output.
However if you are buying, either use the recommended one above, or choose a reputable charger manufacturer such as Anker rather than a cheap manufacturer... you have spent a lot of money on new phones, don't risk them with sub standard manufacturer...worse protection circuits etc.
