This official Samsung charging pad features two different charging stations so users can refuel two devices at the same time, be it their Galaxy Note 9 or a non-phone device, like the Galaxy Watch. One of the two charging stations even features a stand so that users can prop up their phone and perform all their usual activities, like watching videos or sending messages, during charging. The Wireless Charger Duo comes in two colors: black and white.
A lot of things make the Gear IconX wireless earbuds special. For one, you don't even need a Note 9 to use them; they can operate entirely independently. So if you have only a PC, you can use that to upload some tracks, and voilà — you'll be able to listen to music with just the Gear IconX earbuds. However, the earbuds do have Bluetooth functionality and added benefits (including calling and fitness tracking) if synced with a Note 9 or another compatible Samsung phone. The buds are controlled by touchpads that are intuitively designed and conveniently located on the devices, ensuring that music management isn't a hassle. They sport 4GB of storage and come in three colors: black, gray and pink.
Tech21's Evo Check Note 9 case advertises all the features you would expect, including protection from 10-foot drops, access to all Note 9 functions and ports, and a flexible, thin design. What sets it apart from the competition is its unique and titular check design pattern. The Evo Check case comes in orchid, smokey/black and ultra violet color schemes, and includes a limited lifetime warranty.
The Drop Wireless Charger touts a few neat benefits. First, it has a silicone tread surface that helps keep your phone in place while also elevating it so no overheating can occur to slow down charging. Native Union also claims its charger is faster than its competitors because it's 10 watts, compared with the average 7.5 watts. The charging pad comes with an extra-long, braided, 6.5-foot USB-A-to-USB-C charging cable.

RAVPower's wireless charging bank is exactly what it sounds like. Compatible with the Note 9 as well as a host of other Samsung and Apple phones, this 10,000-mAh charger refuels your phone simply by resting underneath it. It comes with a lot of built-in safety features, such as overvoltage, overheat, overload and short-circuit protections, as well as an 18-month warranty, making it a solid choice for the more cautious Note 9 owners out there.
In case the Note 9's 128GB or 512GB storage models aren't enough for you, you can cram some of your extra photos, videos, games, music and movies onto this 256GB microSD card. Depending on which Note 9 you bought, that'll either triple your storage capacity or boost it by 50 percent, neither of which is a small gain.
This adapter has four different ports: USB-C, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and HDMI. No matter what you need to connect your Note 9 to, this adapter will do the trick. This includes HDTVs, external hard drives and a whole host of other devices that are otherwise inaccessible to the Note 9.
