Mophie Multi-Device Wireless Charging Pads Available Through Apple
While the long-ago promised AirPower may never see the light of day, that doesn’t mean Apple customers have to wait to buy a product similar in nature through Apple. Available now through the apple.com, and in the coming weeks at select Apple stores, customers will find a multi-device wireless charging pad from mophie.
The battery case manufacturer introduced two versions of their wireless charging pad, a dual wireless charging pad (which will retail for $79.95), and a 3-in-1 wireless charging pad ($139.95). The former will work seamlessly with any Qi-enabled iPhones and AirPods, with a USB-A port that allows a third device to be charged at the same time. And the latter includes an integrated Apple Watch charging stand so the user can place all of their Qi-enabled Apple products on the pad to charge. And, to ensure efficient charging, the 3-in-1 also features a dedicated AirPods cavity on the pad where the wireless charging case can rest.
“We are proud to introduce a variety of charging solutions that ensure customers can keep their mobile devices and accessories powered to meet the demands of daily life,” Chris Ahern, CEO of ZAGG Brands, said in a statement. “With smooth, polished finishes that look sleek on any desk or tabletop, the mophie wireless charging pads provide the most convenient way to charge up to a trio of favorite devices.”
Both devices look incredibly well designed, at least according to the marketing videos that ZAGG provided to show off their new products. They’re both covered with a shiny black finish and seem rather minimalist, which isn’t a bad thing. If there’s one knock from a design standpoint its that each pad points to dedicated spots where the devices have to be charged. That kind of defeats the purpose of a wireless charging pad where you can just plop a device onto it and walk away.
Nevertheless, it’s good to see mophie get into the wireless charging pad game.
