What plug do I use for Samsung Galaxy S8 tablet?

Hi all,

I was wondering if you could help me?

I have ordered the Samsung Galaxy S8 tablet and it doesn't come with the plug, I'm unsure which plug to get? Do I use a 25W or 45W charger - does it matter which?

I have an Samsung galaxy S21 plus phone, could I use that to charge my S8 tablet [the plug]?

[Sorry for the dumb question!]

Many thanks!

25w charger is probably the sweet spot for the cost and will charge reasonably quickly.

I personally wouldn't go to the expense of a 45w charger as there is not enough of a gain for the extra cash and I don't like wasting £'s

There's plenty of info on this subject on Google if you want to know more about it.

Your welcome. No such thing as a dumb question, like yourself I like to make sure what I buy is what I need, if I don't know I ask.

I just bought another Samsung 45w charger from Amazon the other day for £17.50. It was being sold direct from Amazon at a 50% discount for £22.50 but I managed to get £5 off for listening to a podcast. If you can get it for a good deal like this then go for it, it charges my tablet in the middle %'s of charge much faster, especially when I'm using it whilst it's charging. It's not very noticeable if you're not using it and planning to fully charge it. The 25W official charger with cable is currently £14.95 on Amazon.
