Apple has begun promoting two multidevice wi-fi chargers from Mophie. Both the Dual Wireless Charging Pad ($99.95) and 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad ($139.95) are coming to pick out Apple Stores subsequent week and can be found for on-line order now. Note that Mophie sells the dual-charger for a bit less at $79.95.
The Dual Wireless Charging Pad can ship as much as 7.5W of energy to iPhones positioned on both of the mats. AirPods additionally work nice in the event you’ve obtained the wi-fi charging case, however the Apple Watch received’t cost on this. To resolve for that, there’s a USB-A port round again for juicing up a 3rd gadget — like an Apple Watch, Powerbeats Pro, or no matter else. I’ve requested Mophie for particulars on the ability output of that USB port.
The 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad goes for broke with devoted charging areas for AirPods and the Apple Watch. Plus, there’s one spot for an iPhone or another wirelessly charging gadget that’ll match. Can it cost three of your Apple merchandise without delay? Sure. But Mophie’s answer is nothing like Apple’s canceled AirPower: you’ve obtained to place all the things in its proper place, and the Apple Watch should go on a stand as a substitute of the mat itself.
These aren’t the one wireless charging stations that Apple offers, however the 3-in-1 Mophie is certainly probably the most complete of them. Best Buy additionally sells a similar Nomad-branded option for mainly the identical precise worth. They’re just a little too expensive for me to justify the expense, personally, however if you wish to rid your nightstand of (virtually) all wires, right here you go.
