s8 / plus wireless charger?

Found 28th Apr 2017
Got my S8 plus today and i didn't realise it has this type-c connection, thus the lead isn't compatible with my old wireless charger.
I'm still using the old wireless charger, just not using the type-c lead.
But the charging does seem slow, and am guessing if i used the type-c lead on a compatible wireless charger it would be a lot quicker?
If so, is it just the official samsung one out there at the moment that costs like £70?
Also what are the benefits of this type-c over the micro?
Thanks

No any type C power cable should do the trick
Type C cables can be put in either way, as opposed to micro...

Usb C is only quicker when hooked direct to the mobile.

Wireless charging is slow regardless.

Samsung have made phones longer than they have made washing machines.
They have a habit of innovating at a crazy pace and realising a product somewhat prematurely resulting in some issues.

Saying that I have a Sony Z5 which gets very hot (well known issue)
iPhone 6 Plus that randomly restarts sometimes home button is gammy.

No phone or product for that matter is perfect especially cutting edge consumer electronics
