Apple doesn’t have its AirPower wireless charging mat to offer you but it does have something near to it to sell to you. Mophie, a California-based technology company that manufactures accessories for smartphones has released the first Apple-approved multi-device charging pad and it’s available on Apple.com right away for orders.
Apple has begun selling two multidevice wireless chargers from Morphie to let you charge a range of its products, from iPhones to Watch Series smartwatches. The first product is the Dual Wireless Charging Pad that can charge compatible iPhones and AirPods at the same time. Interesting enough, the accessory also includes a USB-A port so that you could charge one more device through a wired connection. The Dual Wireless Charging Pad can deliver up to 7.5W of power to iPhones placed on either of the mats.
The second product is a 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad that can charge iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch simultaneously just as Apple AirPower would have. But unlike the AirPower, the Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad has a perch for Apple Watch and a small cavity for AirPods. This means all the devices have their dedicated space allotted on the pad. This is nothing like Apple’s idea on the charging pad where you can put your device anywhere and let the pad decide how much power should be thrown to the type of device placed over it. Here on Mophie’s solution, Apple Watch must be put on a stand built for it instead on the mat itself. Well, at least, there’s something that Apple is selling on its website than nothing at all and putting the devices on allotted places isn’t an issue.
The price of the Dual Wireless Charging Pad is $99.95 and the 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad costs $139.95. These are coming to select Apple stores next week but are available for online order now.
